KELLOGG Cereal Box Called Out for Racism By SALADIN AHMED

KELLOGG Cereal Box Called Out for Racism By SALADIN AHMED”

The latest target in the left's push to make everything about race is. wait for it.

Folks: Fantasy author and Marvel Comics' writer Saladin Ahmed said he first noticed the image when having breakfast with his child, who was engrossed with the activities on the back of the box. To be completely honest, the Where's Waldo-y theme makes very little sense: None of the characters are carrying shopping bags, and almost all of them qualify as some sort of public menace, either because they're snorkeling in the water fountain, playing hockey (with a fellow corn pop as the puck!), stilt-walking on spoons, or preparing to drop large objects on passersby below.

USA Today reported about the Corn Pops complaint earlier.

The cereal company said Wednesday it would replace boxes showing cartoon Corn Pops at the mall after Twitter users complained the only brown Pop on the box was depicted as a janitor. "Kellogg is committed to diversity & inclusion", tweeted the cereal company. "We take feedback very seriously, and it was never our intention to offend anyone".

Bottom line: The characters are Kellogg's boxes are corn pops. Instead the company immediately caved and announced new packaging-thus giving weight to Ahmed's silly suggestion that the box is somehow racist, and encouraging other progressives to launch similar attacks on other companies. And now, my son's beloved Corn Pops have shit the proverbial race bed. Hey, I have an idea: How about getting jobs?!
