Political correctness in the form of racism has come to your cereal bowl.
Sound ridiculous? Not to Fiona Onasanya, former British member of Parliament. She tweeted: “@KelloggsUK, as you are yet to reply to my email – Coco Pops and Rice Krispies have the same compòsition (except for the fact CP’s are brown and chocolate flavoured)… so I was wondering why Rice Krispies have three white boys representing the brand and Coco Pops have a monkey?”
Can you milk racism anymore than to find it on a cereal package?
To her, these guys are offensive. It would be better, I suppose, to have a brown elfin guy on there, although that would make it looked like the product had burnt krispies in it. There aren’t any brown/black faces on cocoa krispies, but wouldn’t that look like blackface? That’s not acceptable either.
She doesn’t bring up that while there are no brown elves on packages, neither are there any female elves. What gives, Kellogg’s?
Nor are there any gay elves, Jewish elves, Asian elves (although they are the biggest consumers of rice), Hispanic elves or transgender elves. Maybe she should look into that.
Interestingly, Ms. Onasanya has her own issues. Breitbart reported, “In December 2018, Ms Onasanya was expelled from the Labour Party after being convicted of perverting the course of justice. The solicitor was found to have lied about a speeding offence. She became the first MP to be recalled by voters under the constituency petition system, with 27.6 per cent of her constituency petitioning for her removal, well over the ten per cent required to be ousted. Onasanya was also struck off as a solicitor over the lie.”
Ironically, the institution that she is attacking, Kellogg’s, is well known for funding left wing progressive causes. They have deep ties to George Soros and contribute to his Open Society Institute.
What with Biden bringing up his old friend Corn Pop, who knew that cereal might be an important issue in the 2020 election?
