Down With White Chocolate Privilege!
The brilliant minds at the Mars Wrigley corporation think making the funny cartoon M&M characters “woke” is the ticket to big sales. People who run corporations are pretty stupid.
The word “inclusion” has become a worship word at most major companies. It’s a virtue-signaling word designed to tell the world that they aren’t bigoted, racist, or any other of the reprehensible things that must be kept alive in order for the virtue signaling to make sense.
That virtue signaling is like a drug. Therefore, to feel even better about themselves, many companies are going ‘woke.’ That means they are embracing ideas such as Marxism and ‘Black Lives Matter.’ That phrase presupposes that at one time black lives didn’t matter, but black lives have always mattered—especially to black people. Still, ‘Black Lives Matter’ isn’t really about that. It’s about Marxism. Black Lives Matter just happens to be a clever marketing buzz phrase designed in order to make sure people can’t resist the Marxist destruction of traditional American culture.
The problem with placing inclusion and wokeism above everything else is we can’t know if those non-whites who get hired are truly qualified or simply a diversity hire. That has to weigh heavily on their minds of those minorities that do get hired. It also weighs heavily on young white people who can’t get hired simply because they are white. As for those who are non-white and truly the most qualified? It must bother them most of all, knowing they are unfairly judged. Corporations have embraced institutional racism and discriminate based on the color of people’s skin.
Inclusion in TV commercials means non-whites are usually given preference, even if it means they are over-represented based on demographics. Black people are featured in over 80% of television commercials even though they make up 14 percent of the population. White males in particular are now under-represented and if they do appear, they’re shown in a pejorative manner.
Nearly everyone loves M&M’s and we remember a time when they were simply candy and not characters. There was a time when people avoided red M&M’s because the food coloring was said to be carcinogenic. That may have been an urban legend. Now the candy is ‘woke.’ Critical Candy Theory dictates that the colored discs are good and white people are to be demonized.
It’s time to avoid M&Ms of all colors.
