The company spoke with black people and took the message that black people shouldn't be representative as a cultural icon on rice. It's what BLMs would want apparently as it's against racial equality in 2020.

That ex-labour MP who lied about speeding was complaining that the monkey on coco pops was racist the other day. :lol:

It's gone beyond ridiculous and is now quite amusing.

Remember that some years ago, removing a black icon from packaging would be considered racist.

Indeed. Especially saying Rice Crispies had white boys n it, ignoring there are white coc pops with the monkey and chocolate rice crispies with the 3 white boys on it.The left has utterly lost the plot with it's weird mix of wokeness, identity politics and oppression hierarchy as well as looking for offense everywhere.

It's actually damaging to anti-racism and equality progression. Munira Mirza explains it very well here with a few examples. No wonder the left hate her for being so logical and evidence based:

Why would Uncle Ben be thought of as a negative depiction?

That's what gets me. Given the history, the choosing of a black Jazz musician to be the logo of your company seems a huge progressive action given the time.

In a few years time they will be moaning that there are only white Corporate Personifications and will be calling it racist.

Old timey black farmer in his Sunday best there to serve white people his wares. He's confident but respectful and while glad of the money for the fancy bowtie not the type of braggart who would beam a toothy smile.
Truthfully those images are meant to engender trust the way Morgan Freeman does. He's out of a job for one but tbf I think he is a bit touchy feely anyway so was on his way out

I think his "Colonel" status was an honorary thing due to his success in business.
