Skittles, the fruity-flavored candy that advertises “taste the rainbow,” is coming under fire from the militant far-left for its attempt to honor gay pride month — by changing its traditional rainbow colors to all white for the month of June.
“During Pride, only one rainbow matters,” each limited-edition bag of candy indicates. “So we’ve given up ours to show support.”
As a reward for kowtowing to the gay community, the left is bashing the candy maker for sending the wrong message. Some are even referring to that message as racist, and critics took their complaints to social media.
I dont think skittles thought through the LGBT pride campaign..
Releasing all white sweets during “pride”..
The jokes write themselves

Also do white Skittles feel a little racist to anyone?

My dad got me some white skittles and some woman apparently had a go at him for being racist in Tesco. Gotta love humanity

Funny thing is, this is the second year in a row Skittles came out with an all-white version of their candy, yet this is the first time that the word “racist” has been thrown at the company.
Could it all have more to do with who’s occupying the White House than something the candy maker did?
When Obama made June the Month of LGBT Pride, Skittles made white ones…no outrage about it then…has nothing to do with skin color

There were a a lot of clearer heads who saw all the hate and hoopla generated against Skittles and saw it as “sound and fury signifying nothing.”
People really need to stop thinking that everything is racist, white skittles are to support gay pride. Which I do proudly.

One person finally remembered his high school physics lesson as to what goes into making white light.
Apparently no one knows that white is every color combined https://t.co/LhTFODBout

There, does that make you happy? Probably not. The left is never happy unless it’s complaining about something.
