Can you spot the racist Corn Pop? According to one Saladin Ahmed, the only brown corn pop in this illustration is working as a janitor and that makes the Kellogg’s Corn Pops box racist. Kellogg’s has already apologized but we think someone should ask Saladin why he thinks being gainfully employed is insulting.

They forgot to mention that Bowl-O-Rama is an anagram for Obama. Perhaps this was all done on purpose to trigger the snowflakes. Two privileged white guys on holiday watching the black guy work while hundreds of little white children play at an arcade. Wait, those are undercover cops. OMG, that’s even worse!! LOL!

If you can notice the difference in one character on a box of cereal with dozens of them on there, you probably have too much time on your hands.

It is a search game, per the balloon in the middle of the pic.

I dunno, why make one corn pop brown in the first place? I’m sure it wasn’t intentional, but I can see where it would be perceived as hurtful to a young black child trying to solve the puzzle of breakfast. “Mom, why are all the other ninjas playing and having fun while the black guy cleans up their mess?” Unintentional, but I get it. If they were all Cocoa Puffs playing and having fun, with one ‘white’ puff cleaning the mess… while it wouldn’t offend me, It would give me pause.

Well, okay, I see what you’re saying but it’s not a black corn pop. It’s a brownish or tan-colored corn pop. If you want to assign a race-label to a corn pop (a pretty stupid exercise in the overall scheme of the universe) you would have to assign that one either an Hispanic or Asian label… which, coincidentally, is what you actually see cleaning all the malls if you pay attention. At least that’s what I see. Casinos too. In fact, when I lived in Nevada I often remarked, “Where the hell do the casinos find all these little brown people you see wandering around with cleaning supplies?” I just assumed the big casino companies had the wherewithal to import cleaning crews. But then, when I moved back to Michigan, where we only have smaller Indian casinos, it’s the same little brown people doing the cleaning. I don’t get it. Where do they come from?

You can truly be offended by “EVERYTHING” if you are a mentally disturbed liberal. Hell I worked as a janitor as a second job when I was young. I am offended that Kellogg’s apologized, who do I bitch too? I am also offended by this complainer who thinks work is offensive. Again who do I bitch too?

My first job as a teenager was cleaning a nasty dive bar on Sundays. My buddy and I did it together. I was proud as a peach that I had gainful employment. Place was so nasty we’d throw raw hamburger from behind the bar down the stairs into the basement and watch the rats come out and fight over it. Going down there for cleaning supplies took nerve–we’d flip a coin every week to decide who had to go down there. The bathrooms would have puke and piss all over the place. We didn’t care. We were making our own money and that was all that mattered.

Gainfully employeed is what that was called. Paying your dues and developing a work history. Now a day, it’s called oppression

When life kicks the living shit out of you and you have no clue how to deal with it. Who will you cry and bitch to then?

Well normal people like us don’t complain and run to a safe space, you get the shit kicked out of you by life, you get up, dust yourself off and move forward…otherwise you’ll be a democrat for life.
