COCO POPS are Racist (Conspiracy / Strange)

This is getting insane :-crazy


Coco Pops have been a much-loved breakfast staple for decades with one of the most recognisable mascots in TV advertising. But Coco the Monkey has come under suspicion from disgraced former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya, who has written to Kellogg's asking why they chose that animal to represent the chocolate-flavoured cereal when Rice Krispies uses 'three white boys'.

Ms Onasanya, who was jailed for three months in January 2019 after she was convicted of lying to police about a speeding ticket, says that there is little difference between Coco Pops and sister brand Rice Krispies beyond their colour and flavour.

The former Peterborough MP revealed she has emailed Kellogg's UK office for clarification on why Rice Krispies have 'three white boys' as a mascot whereas chocolate-flavoured Coco Pops is represented by a monkey.

What is wrong with that picture though? Are they going to replace it with another black woman? What is the big deal?

If it's to do with the Aunt part having some kind of link to slavery, well will they be doing away with

I don't think the people calling for it to be removed really understand why. They look at it and see it's from a past era so in turn it must be racist :-boring

Just another story where the vicious mob who most probably don't even buy the product are getting offended on other people's behalf who don't want the change.


The family of a Texas woman who once portrayed Aunt Jemima has called on the breakfast brand to reconsider its decision to scrap the ubiquitous portrait from its products.

Vera Harris said the family takes pride in Quaker Oats scouting her second cousin Lillian Richard to become a brand representative in 1925, news station KLTV reported.

"She was considered a hero in [her hometown of] Hawkins, and we are proud of that. We do not want that history erased," Harris said.

Harris said Richard worked for the company for 23 years, traveling around as Aunt Jemima to serve pancakes until she suffered a stroke.

"She made an honest living out of it for a number of years. She toured around Texas," Harris said, noting there "wasn't a lot of jobs, especially for black women back in that time."

Harris said the family was upset by Quaker Oats' announcement last week that it would rebrand Aunt Jemima products because the character's origins are "based on a racial stereotype."

"We want the world to know that our cousin Lillian was one of the Aunt Jemimas and she made an honest living. We would ask that you reconsider just wiping all that away," Harris said.

"I wish we would take a breath and not just get rid of everything, because good or bad, it is our history. Removing that wipes away a part of me — a part of each of us."

They better not touch Uncle Ben's :-tothehand My family having been buying that since I was a kid.

They just want to destroy anything wholesome

Both Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's feature two smart distinguished black characters. Why would you want to rip those characters from the shelves?

The only person making a connection between a monkey and black people is a black person. Do you think White people are putting coco pops in their breakfast bowl and laughing at the "black person" on the box :-roll it just doesn't happen.

:-facepalm That's stretching the racism angle a little too far

The problem is if these companies keep bowing down to the very small minority on Twitter the small minority will never stop finding stuff to get changed. Companies should just ignore these idiots.
