Real Americans don't buy Kellogg's products

Kellogg’s Corn Pops is going through a redesign because, apparently, the little pop characters showcased on its boxes are racist.

Or, more to truth: one pop.

That’s right. A single, solitary brownish-looking pop among the sea of golden-yellow pops has sparked a firestorm.

And by firestorm, we mean a complaint.

But the “r” word was slung — racism — so it might as well be a zillion complaints. Don’t want to get boycotted by the NAACP. The group, after all, just sent out an advisory warning about American Airlines, saying once upon a time, a black person or two was asked to switch seats and therefore, blacks may want to consider flying another line.

Just think what the NAACP could do to Corn Pops.

Anyhow, here’s the story, courtesy of USA Today: “Kellogg’s will be redesigning Corn Pops cereal boxes after a complain about racially insensitive art on the packaging. The [company] said … it will replace the cover drawing of carton characters shaped like corn kernels populating a shopping mall. The corn pop characters are shown shopping, playing in an arcade or frolick[ing] in a fountain. One skateboards down an escalator.”

But one — one wayward one — operates a floor waxer. And it’s this one that grabbed the attention of Saladin Ahmed, a Marvel Comics’ Black Bolt series writer.

He wrote on Twitter: “Why is literally the only brown corn pop on the whole cereal box the janitor? this is teaching kids racism.”

Sorry, Ahmed, but first off, kids probably wouldn’t notice and second off, even if they did, they wouldn’t automatically jump to make a connection with racism.

He followed with another tweet: “yes its a tiny thing, but when you see your kid staring at this over breakfast and realize millions of other kids are doing the same …”

Once again — sorry. Just don’t see it. But Kellogg’s, as companies these days so often do, jumped at the suggestion of racism and rather than explain, hey Ahmed, it’s just a Corn Pop, no need to get in a bind, public relations put out this quick message: “Kellogg is committed to diversity & inclusion. We did not intend to offend — we apologize. the artwork is updated & will be in stores soon.”

That’s great. One complaint — and the whole company moves.

What’s next, Tony the Tiger — too masculine? The Pillsbury Doughboy — too white? Not to make light; racism is never funny. But, seriously, a corn pop that’s racist? OK — now that’s funny. They’re Corn Pops, people. Eat ’em. Don’t analyze ’em.

The stupidity of liberals, ability to ignore their ignorance

 

Original Post

One Muslim complained. Next? Burkas on all the little female pops and any females pictured on the boxes? Black man starts his own janitorial company, hires only blacks, of course, gets the contract for the mall thanks to affirmative action, gets depicted on a cereal box, and along comes a Muslim crap stirrer. Brother can't get a break.

Detroit, Mich. – Detroit’s Entrepreneurs of Color Fund (EOC) today announced that it has awarded nearly 30 minority-owned small businesses with $2.75 million in critical capital since it began making loans one year ago. Created by the Detroit Development Fund (DDF), JPMorgan Chase & Co. and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF), this $7 million program is supporting Detroit-based neighborhood businesses owned by entrepreneurs of color and businesses that primarily hire people of color.

Detroit isn't but one of hundreds of black controlled cities destroyed
by blacks in the first place, they've more damage on their hands than
they could ever repair/replace. 
 
gimmedats, and they're all racist............

The flags may be reserved for museums and Confederate Memorial Day.  Removing statues resembles cultural cleansing -- something associated with the Chinese Cultural Revolution and ISIS.  Now, there are cries to remove Columbus.  Teddy Roosevelt's statue was vandalized.  

Even George Washington isn't safe.  "Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.

Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.

âThe plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome," leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder.

"Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques."

Flags first, next statues, then books are burned.  Finally, humans are burned.  Democrats -- the new fascists.

Sounds like the church leaders didn't handle the situation well.

Republicans sure do whine about a lot of issues. How do you whine so much and call someone else a snowflake?

The Refs aren't necessarily whining or Republicans, but just
Americans first and against anti American acts from liberals.
 
Talk about whining, another year has come and gone while
the idiot blacks complaining about black on black crime is
absolutely deafening. Just one of many items on the list of
the stupidity of liberals and their ability to ignore their
ignorance because there's nothing free for them to worry
 about at the moment.

Oh dear Lord. We have one of those conspiracy theory/ tin foil hat wearing lunatics on the forums. How fun! Do you think Bush did 9.11, too?

Are you asking the Lord where's the conspiracy.? Or did your
attempted diversion (what else is new) really not show a
conspiracy, Methinks the snowflake protest too much. 
 

By applying super-sophisticated, state-or-the-art technology, I have been able to conclude that the little janitor on the package is very probably black.  I determined that the music  which he is receiving from the device on his belt is "gangsta' rap." However, this finding is tentative.  Preferences for the various currently popular and distinctly corrupt forms of alleged "music" are not race-specific to the degree that one can always confidently identify the ethnicity of the listener.  White, black, brown and yellow alike, by the multiplied millions, rot their minds listening to this noxious crapola.
