THE UNZ REVIEW — When cereal goes 365 Black, you know the concept of Black-Run America (BRA) is no longer a joke.

  1. The company was pretty ‘woke’ long before this — if you look at their website (link), there seems to be about as much propaganda about ‘Equity, Diversity and Inclusion’ and ‘Combating Racism’ as there is about their food products/nutrition — that did not happen overnite.

    Honestly, no one should be eating what they produce anyway, most of which is full of sugar and very dense in carbohydrates — i.e. the kinds of processed foods that appear to be directly implicated in the ‘obesity epidemic’ — anyone who eats breakfast (16/8 intermittent fasting is a good idea, and for most the best/easiest way to do it is to skip breakfast) and is short on time in the morning should have a batch of hard boiled eggs on hand, and eat a couple of those with black coffee rather than cereal/milk.

    So with this ‘woke’ nonsense, you now have another reason not to buy/consume their products.
