“Gotta have my Pops” may be a sentiment many cereal-loving kids identify with, but according to Marvel comic writer and award-nominated author Saladin Ahmed, one thing they don’t need to have is breakfast with a side of racism.
After having breakfast with his son, Ahmed took to Twitter to express his frustration with the art depicted on the back of a Corn Pops cereal box. Although the entire box was filled with corn kernel characters doing all sorts of fun activities (ranging from swimming and juggling to selfie-taking and shopping), one character stood out — for all the wrong reasons. Among a sea of yellow kernels, there was a lone, brown-colored kernel who appeared to be a janitor.
