Plans for a bake sale on Thursday hosted by the College Republicans at University of California, Berkeley, ignited campus-wide controversy when organizers announced that the event would feature a pay scale determined by the race of the buyer, according to The Daily Californian.

The bill is currently awaiting the decision of Gov. Jerry Brown, D-Calif.
