Kellogg's is being accused of racism after a cartoon on the back of a box of Corn Pops Cereal depicted a dark colored cartoon character working as a janitor.

Brammy's notes: Maybe I'm missing something because I'm a 30-something year old White dude, but how the hell is this racist?

Racist was my black employee at Ames who had rocks thrown at her car
while people shouted "Go Home N****r!"

Racist is a black Ames store manager I knew who had to be transferred out of a small
town for his own safety because he was getting death threats.

A stupid cartoon is not racist.

I can't believe that people are "triggered" by offensive images. If they have nothing nice to say about it, shut up!
