This is Poe’s Law exemplified. Once, I would have assumed this was satire.
Nic King is following through on his divine inspiration to create a “vegan,” black culture-themed breakfast cereal in the shape of a fist. He says his cereal. Proud Puffs, won’t be available in stores for a while as works on crowdfunding its production. He hopes the cereal will ship in April. King claims he has been receiving over 600 orders a week. “The community has really been standing behind me, and calling it “the cereal for the culture,” Nick says. “My goal with this cereal is to uplift the Black and brown community.”
You know: inclusion.
King’s company is designed to to uplift the Black and brown community. You know: inclusion. On the side of the box, consumers will find a list of influential figures in Black history, like anti-white terrorist Angela Davis. “I’m getting messages from people saying like, ‘Wow, my kids are excited to see a full Black family on the box,’” he says. Inclusion!
King also expects a boost because his company, Legacy Cereal, is black-owned. Funny, I don’t care who owns a business as long as it delivers quality goods and services. I was taught that deciding whose business to patronize based on race was was bigotry and discrimination.
King seems a bit confused to me. “I didn’t want to push another sugary cereal,” King said when asked about the choice to produce a vegan cereal. Wait, aren’t all cereals vegan? What does avoid in cereal have to do with veganism? Presumably a vegan cereal can’t be served in milk, right? Only soy or oat milk? Yum.
“I think everybody should be able to celebrate their culture, should be able to celebrate their background and where they’re from,” King said. “I feel like everybody should be able to see themselves, identify themselves and be able to celebrate themselves as well.”
Unless they are white.
Yeah, I’m sure this will help clear that up.
