 Hi, checking stories cross country. A North Carolina man survived 4 days in the Utah dessert after breaking his leg on a solo hike. Wein Richard says that he lost his footing and fell 10 feet to a canyon1. He then managed to drag himself five miles back to his car. Eventually, a helicopter spotted2 him and got him straight to a hospital. Check out these amazing pictures of spouts3 along lake Michigan. Dozens funnel4 clouds spotted. But there were no reports of any damages or injuries. 

And in Reno, Nevada, more than 400 people attended the memorial service for the victims and families of that deadly air race crash that killed 11 people. Reno's mayor says it was a chance to show support for the victims and everyone related to them. Well, tomorrow, UC Berkeley, campus Republicans are holding a bake sale. And if you are a white, you are going to pay a lot more for your cookies than the black women. The point, SB 185. The California bill that would allow race and ethnicity to once again be factors in student admissions. We're going to get to the politics in just a minute, but first, here is what the sweets will cost you. If you are white, 2 bucks5. If you are Asian, buck6 50, Latinos, a dollar. Hold on, it gets cheaper, 75 cents for African-Americans, 25 cents for American-Indians, and women, well, guess what? We get a 25 cent discount. And on campus, young Dems and Republicans are going at it.
The price structure is there to bring attention, to cause people to get a little upset. But it's really there to cause people think more critically about what this kind of policy would do in university admissions. 
 
 
The way that they made the statement, the words that they used, the fact that they humorized and mocked the struggles of people's color on this campus is very disgusting to me.
Joining us now CNN political analyst7 Roland Martin and also CNN contributor Will Kein. All right, Roland. it's satire8, good way to make a point or not. 
Hell no, these guys are idiots. But you know that, this has been happening for like 15 years making these ridiculous points. But here is I found interesting, they are very quick to say, oh, no purposes. But guess what, none of them will say a word about legacy9. When if your mom and dead went to your school, we're going to hook you up and help you out. In 2004, I questioned president Bush about this very issue, and he owed up to saying legacy should not be used in college admissions. Let's see college Republicans tackle that, I bet they won't, they don't have the guts10 to do it.
Will?
You know, the outrage11 of this bake sale strikes me as unforgivably irrational12, Roland. It's like being mad at the thermometer for telling you that it's hot. This is about whether or not the state should be using racial preferences, whether or not the state should be embracing racial discrimination. And this bake sale I think is a brilliant piece of satire to draw attention to that much more malignant13, that much more offensive state law that California is considering.
So..
Actually it's much more, actually it's much more offensive well is white privilege, OK?  When you have these college Republicans, they are not debating many of these guys when it comes from affirmative action. White women have benefited affirmative action more than anybody else, many of the same people, their moms, their aunts, their sisters, their cousins.
But, see, they are likely going to school being funded right now by some mother who is getting a government contract, although we don't want to talk about that because that might affect mom, but again, Will, address the inequalities of legacy. Why is it they like one preference, and they are quiet about that, or we're going to have problem with this preference?
