So the latest, absolute crazy equity statement is that made by Mars candy and centers on their colors and their characters being redesigned to coincide with a “more dynamic and progressive world”.
REALLY???? !!!! It’s candy. The only controversy should be whether you like plain or peanut !!!!!
It is outright shocking to see the lengths these progressive idiots will go. Looking in every crack and corner of life looking for some sign of prejudice or need for equity (note I specifically avoided the work equality).
With rare exception, white people, especially white males never “protest” the obvious and outside prejudice they have experienced, are currently experiencing and will experience in the future. But, now, I’m going to take a stand.
Let’s talk about the characters. The old ones – hysterical. The new ones – sad. Now the new characters are supposed to show the power of community. Hmm. I never knew there was controversy with the green candy design. Apparently, long eye lashes and 1960s style go-go boots were sexist. IT’S CANDY !!!!! The red candy was accused of being grumpy towards his counter parts. IT’S CANDY !!!!! (We better warn the 7 Dwarfs the progressives are coming for them.) Apparently there was also a need for the green candy and the brown candy to be friendlier to each other. IT’S CANDY !!!! OH MY GOD – I can’t stand it !!!! The green candy and brown candy have to show solidarity.
The orange candy, portrayed as very anxious, will remain to better bond with the Generation Z group because, as Mars points out, that generation is very anxious. (So much for prejudice opinions – grouping all members of a group by a characteristic. You know, profiling.) Hypocrites.
If you go on the website you might notice only one candy has an actual name – it is Ms. Brown. Guess which candy it is.
So, ahh, where is the white candy? I thought we were progressive and inclusive. I thought we were trying to be consistent with the world (apparently there are no white people in the world).
I’m only one sad, tired, rather insignificant complainer. But, I’m writing them a letter advising I’m no longer a customer.
