Author Says Kellogg’s Corn Pop’s Cereal Box Art Is Racist.
Corn Pops have been around since the 1950’s and have experienced all sorts of changes from the name, the amount of sugar, and the people who sponsored it. In all that time it has been a wholesome sugary cereal not once has it been Nazi pops or some racial slur variety. It is beyond me that our society can get hung up on cereal bits on a box and declare one as being darker and thereby presume racial undertones. It’s cereal.
The box art in question features a bunch of humanized cereal puffs hanging out at the mall and one of the cereal puffs is dressed as a janitor. People are supposing that since this particular puff is a shade darker, the artist is insinuating that the janitor is a racial minority puff? Utter nonsense that a child would pick up racism from a cereal box. Racism is a behavior taught to children mostly by family and friends. children don’t pick up racism from their cereal, especially in this case where there is none to be found.
By this same logic, the janitor puff is the only one with clothes is that a reflection on how all lighter shaded puffs are actually nudists?
