The latest target in the left's push to make everything about race is. wait for it.

A social media complaint has prompted Kellogg's to change the art on the back of Corn Pops cereal boxes. See if you can spot an uncomfortable trend with the Pops displayed.

"He is the only one with a job", one person said, describing the "brown" pop.

A few hours later, the Kellogg's Twitter account responded to the initial tweet writing, "Kellogg is committed to diversity & inclusion". "We take feedback very seriously, and it was never our intention to offend anyone. The artwork is updated & will be in stores soon".

The decision regarding the artwork most likely wasn't intentional, but it's the lack of awareness from Kellogg's that concerned Ahmed. Instead the company immediately caved and announced new packaging-thus giving weight to Ahmed's silly suggestion that the box is somehow racist, and encouraging other progressives to launch similar attacks on other companies. None of this makes Corn Pops appetizing.

For decades, cereal companies have taken to anthropomorphizing their product to create mascots that could appeal to kids, resulting in the worldwide recognition of these characters.
