Sociology of Black and White M&Ms

You may not know it yet, but black and white M&Ms are racist. This goes beyond the idiotic notion many people get whenever they hear a word associated with a minority, but just short of not being a joke.

First of all, the candies are segregated in the bag. The first five I took out were all white. I later got to groups of all blacks and rarely got a mixed group, taking usually two or three at a time.

Secondly, the very notion of a black and white candie seems to yearn for the old days where racism was more rampant: the days when Woodrow Wilson would show Birth of a Nation in the White House.

Third, the white M&Ms are slightly larger than the black M&Ms. This causes the black one to “fall through the cracks” of the microcosm of society.

Today’s candy producers sicken me. Well, I am all out of inane accusations for the day.
