Coco pops and the cheeky little monkey

Post by mysty »

It was a news item today

As a child and adult, I still have them sometimes.
It never once occurred to me that the packet could be seen as others as racist.
Surely uncle Ben's rice is worse.
There in no question racism is throughout most societies but breakfast cereal.

My daughter told me that and Snap Crackle and Pop are all white, so that's a no-no. She said where she read it it was being reported as serious and not satire. Flippin' heck. They're even talking about taking down the statue to Greyfriars Bobby because he didnae like cats.

The response seems to have been gratifyingly reasonable
Same old nonsense.

Definitely something white about that monkey!

To the former MP, bolox, there are real causes to fight. You are just trying to get into the public eye again after being sacked for... what was it?

I suspect the cereal thing started as a Did Not Happen of the Year on Twitter and then it snowballed

Three white guys selling rice krispies? What is the world coming to? Surely there should be at least six characters. One white, one black, one Asian, one male, one female, and one transgender. As for the monkey, well................ :roll: With coco pops loaded with so much sugar and artificial crap he'd probably go berserk and vote Tory.

Personally I think this is ridiculous and discredits and deflects away from the real issues of behind the BLM movement.

The people who are now running the BLM campaign need to keep the cause on the road so will keep coming up, with new ideas.
