    I don`t see why they feel the need to put black people on advertisements, there`s less than what? 5% of the entire population that are that colour, so it`s kind of obvious most people would be white. It`s not racist.

    "I blame the Quaker Oats guy for this..." Yeah, I know that`s just a joke, but you won`t find any religious denomination more opposed to racism than the Quakers. They were denouncing slavery back as far back as the 1600s.

    It was obviously done because it looked more graffically appealling. Let`s face it; you put a bunch of pasty white people on a brown box and it just looks wrong. The same can be said for the vice-versa.

    well, when you paint a picture, you don`t use colors that clash right? so if you`re designing a cereal box would you also color coordinate? not sure if this is racist or just design fail...

    I-A-B just posted this a month ago and we all commented how lame this was and rated it low so what do the brilliant mods do? THEY REPOST!

    Original lame post is even more lame in report form.

    Anyone who thinks this is racist is the racist, by the way.

    Okay... So they use people of color close to the color of the box itself... This is called Aesthetics in Marketing. It has nothing to do with being racist. Its done to keep the box looking pleasing to the consumer by keeping a constant color scheme. People buy what LOOKS good; be it clothing, cars, or even food... If the packaging doesn`t look right, less consumers will buy it on impulse.

    For something to be racist it must be derogatory towards a race. To simply state the fact that people have different skin color is not racist. And the real problem with people yelling "racism" when they see this is that the term becomes devalued, and looses it`s meaning.

    This picture can ONLY be racist in the degree than milk can be better than chocolate. If the brown box said "$hit" instead of "Cereal" it would be racist. But it doesn`t. So it`s not racist.

    Why must people be so sensitive about race all of the time? Just because black people are on one box and white people on another does not mean it`s racist at all! Ugh.

    Am I a poser wanna be if I buy the Maple one? Do I need to be accepted by the black community first? Like Bill Clinton, or Eminem?

    If I am largely of Irish heritage, should I stick to lucky charms?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    I`m soooo tired of the race card crap!!!! They had a NAACP rally by a statue of George Washington and covered it up and said they didn`t want to offend anybody hmmmm maybe we should cover anything to do with MLK on presidents day do you think there would be a bit of an uproar?? See I`m no racist I`m just sick of the race card and if something doesn`t go their way they yell discrimination and its changed and yet there is just as much if not more racist blacks then whites go figure hey?????
