The Skittles Rainbow’s Sour Flavor

No matter how tolerant and inclusive leftists try to be, it’s never enough for other leftists. The joke’s on them.

How do you celebrate “LGBT Pride Month” when your product is multi-colored and your slogan is “Taste the Rainbow”? You get rid of the colors. For the second year in a row, Skittles has issued a limited edition version of its candy in the UK and Germany that is only white with black letters. Last year, Skittles explained in a letter to London Pride, “So this is kind of awkward, but we’re just gonna go ahead and address the rainbow-colored elephant in the room. You have the rainbow … we have the rainbow … and usually that’s just hunky-dory. But this Pride [Month], only one rainbow deserves to be the centre of attention — yours. And we’re not going to be the ones to steal your rainbow thunder, no siree.”

Not to be out tolerated, some leftists are whining that the move is, you guessed it, racist. You just can’t win.
