How is this systemic racism?

Why is afroamericans not proud of this?

Is it systemic racism with all products with whites on it or is it only blacks?

But it's ok replace white do clevelands voice becouse he is black with a black!


The Black chef will no longer appear on Cream of Wheat packaging where he was the face of the brand for more than a century, the product’s parent company announced in a decision that comes three months after it vowed to re-evaluate its marketing to ensure it did not “inadvertently contribute to systemic racism.”

Everything about this is nuts.

There is no rhyme or reason to anything they do.

This is how a product looks like in my country

Are white offended with a young blond boy on it?

Does white complain about systemic racism?

Maybe the leftish political correct thinks it's 1930¨s fascism and nazism

The bigger issue is that the families that were getting revenue from this now will no longer get it.
they are basically harming black people to prevent supposedly harming black people.

it is the dumbest logic in the world.

Brand management is the rhyme and reason...

I was actually referencing the selective outrage about some things, but not similar outrage about identical considerations.

The image itself harkens back to the days of Minstrel shows and little black Sambo when blacks were subjugated and knew their place. Change is good, time for an update.

You sure we are talking about the same thing? It's just a picture of a chef

Good stuff with a little butter and maple syrup on it.

If you put butter and maple syrup on a shoe, it tastes good. That ain't saying much.

Why is it bigoted, though, to imply that something prepared by a black person is delicious? I don't understand this one.

Nothing ridiculous about it. Times change. Western culture outgrew and moved away little black Sambo and other stereotypical imagery and portrayals of blacks with big lips and bug eyes in advertising and print media.

If you cant buy cream of wheat without some subservient black face on the cover, that is on you. Anyone unwilling to look at the history of the logo, and only posting 2020 shots of it, needs to **** off.

Further proving that the woke brigade and white racists are the same. Both are happy to have black people off of consumer packaging.
