The Great American Cereal Caper
Advertisers all over the world are in for some serious trouble. Now it appears that over sensitive groups (Liberals) are on the attack. This weeks victim – Kellogg’s Corn Pops. It appears that Marvel Comics writer Saladin Ahmed studied the package and found a brown corn pop on the back of the package working as a janitor. How racially insensitive! Kellogg’s was required to apologize for this and the artwork is being redone on the boxes.
So, my question would be – what if it was a white pop doing the work? Would that be white supremacy? Would it be prejudicial because only the white pop got a job and the rest of the pops didn’t?
The incredible stupidity of the American Society is growing.
What happens when the go after “Fruity Pebbles Cereal?” Will that be an attack on gays and lesbians? What about Count Chocula? Will that be an attack on black vampires? Will the Frosted Flakes Tony the Tiger be an attack on Tigers? Will animal activists be in an uproar (pun)? What about Lucky Charms? Captain Crunch? Trix? Are rabbits, white captains and leprechaun’s on the hit list?
Is it a time in America where marketing needs to go away? Should everything be packed in just a plain cardboard box with the name of the product written on it? Should there be no people used in marketing? Animals can’t be used either. The overly sensitive racial groups in America really need to get a life. To simply look for reasons to be a crybaby is a reflection on their weakness as a human being. There are all sorts of varieties of skin colors of the human species, just as dogs and cats have different color hair. The different colors doesn’t make us better or worse because it is what is inside that counts. So are the days of marketing over?
If I were Kellogg’s in this case, I would have been on the fence on what to do. An apology and a package change certainly appeased the stupidity of America and protected their sales but did it send the wrong message? I guess it is important to protect the company and those people working there. I would have posed this question to Saladin Ahmed the Marvel Comics Writer – If we were to change nothing on our package except the color skin on the only pop that appears to be working, what color would it be? Would he have an answer? Is he just a whining crybaby? Perhaps we should look at his Marvel characters. Is his Spiderman character racist? After all he is a white child? Couldn’t he have been a black or brown Spiderman? After all most spiders are black and brown. When you think about Marvel’s characters most have a light skin. Saladin, why are you casting your characters in a specific race?
Most intelligent people just understand that we all have differences and race, creed or color make absolutely no difference. It is a shame liberal crybabies have to make it something it is not. I would hate to be working in the advertising field now. Can you image how hard it would be to create a package? What about a television commercial. Can you afford to have an actor of each race and creed in the commercial? Should you dare to use a cartoon character? Would a stick figure be racist?
These people should be ashamed of themselves. They are just showing the world how hollow and shallow their character is.
