Skittles is facing fierce accusations of racism today following the release of an all-white limited edition version of the typically rainbow-colored candies.

“Only one rainbow matters this Pride,” reads the back of the all-white Skittles package. “Give the rainbow, taste the rainbow. All the lentils are white in celebration of Pride. Enjoy the mystery mix.”

This did not go over well at all, as many quickly jumped up and slammed Skittles for choosing white as the color for candy meant to praise equality.

As Infowars writer Paul Joseph Watson points out, what Skittles has done is nothing new.

Last year, when Obama declared June ‘LGBT Pride Month,’ Skittles released an all-white bag of candy.

“It’s unexplained why race obsessives are suddenly up in arms now,” writes Watson.

    LOL stupid virtue-signaling liberals. Skittles just pissed off everyone while trying to pander to the liberal left. Don’t you idiots know? Nothing makes them happy. Unless all white people, men, capitalists and Christians are exterminated. Then they’ll be happy.

      no they wont because they turn on each other over little things. Like when Donald Trump was inaugurated and Nicole Kidman said she thought everyone should try to support the president.

      I suspect they’d find other groups to go after, since it is simply a part of their nature to take and manipulate the moral high-ground in order to dominate others. If the capitalists were gone, they’d go after trade unionists, and if they were gone they’d go after children selling lemonade, etc.

    In my humble opinion, WHITE would be the absence of color since the only other option would be clear. Therefore, should be the ultimate uniter!

    • Anthony Perez

      Black is actually the absence of color, white is all colors combined.

      • Janice King

        In the light spectrum yes where white light contains all visible colors. However, in Art (and in clothing dye), white IS the absence of color whereas black is the intensity of A color.

        • Joseph de Nicola

          You’re twisting facts to support your false assertions. Colour only exists in the eye and the brain, due to the nature of light. When you mix dyes or crayons you are not mixing colours, you are mixing chemical pigments which have affects on each other having nothing to do with the spectrum. The only meaningful conversation about light is scientific and indisputable. The more reasonable thing to do is to just admit that some people got their panties all in a bunch over currently mode left-speak, and misapplied a metaphor. People who can’t admit when they’ve made an error are showing their childishness and become totally incredible, as well as the causes they espouse.

      • swampdrainer65

        Visible light contains all colors which makes it white. Visible light is therefore raaaaaaacist!

      • Katherine McChesney

        Actually, I’m an artist and I know that black contains ALL the colors. Try taking all but the black crayons and coloring on one spot on a piece of paper. The end result will be a black spot.

        • Joseph de Nicola

          Yes, obviously an artist (poor and struggling, I presume?) and have no background in science. Colour only exists in the eye and the brain, due to the nature of light: otherwise, it’s just a vibration. Similarly, if there was a big bang, it didn’t make a “sound” because there were not yet ears to hear. When you mix dyes, paints or crayons you are not mixing colours, you are mixing chemical pigments which have affects on each other having nothing to do with the spectrum. The only meaningful conversation about light is scientific and indisputable. The colour from an object is still a property of the light that strikes it, and thew brain that decodes the vibrations coming in from the optic nerve.

          • Katherine McChesney

            What a stupid belief. Sounds like moronic new age belief.

          • Joseph de Nicola

            No, it’s a little something called neurobiology, not a belief at all but a demonstrable fact of the human nervous system. Though the solid object may exist, it is just electrical impulses from the sensory organs that are decoded by the brain which give the impression of colour. Ask a physicist, and she will tell you that colour doesn’t exist at all, that wavelengths of light exist outside our brains, but colours are subjective mental phenomena that depend on our visual systems.

            The easiest way to realise this is to consider how televisions and other displays create the subjective experience of colour. They use red, green and blue light (meaning light with the corresponding wavelengths). With these 3 wavelengths, a television can be used to create any colour imaginable.

            Consider how red light and green light can be combined to create yellow light. This has nothing to do with physics. The two types of light wave do not in any sense “mix”, except at the retina.

            The retina is not the whole story, however. The neuroscience of colour vision is complex, and only partially understood. The famous image of the blue-and-black / white-and-gold dress illustrates this. Some people can voluntarily switch between the two perceptions. This implies that the retina is not the only part of the visual system that is involved in colour vision. Voluntary control is generally assumed to act at higher levels of the visual hierarchy.

    • Joseph de Nicola

      Actually, it’s the opposite. Black is the absence of colour and light, whereas white is the combination of all colours. A prism (or mist) breaks white light into the colours of the rainbow. Skittles was absolutely right-on, scientifically. By choosing white, they include all colours of the rainbow. Besides, white people are not white, they are just a lighter shade of brown or beige than people with higher concentrations of melanin. This has nothing to do with left or right, homophobia or racism. It has to do with the general decline in the quality of education.

    • VerifyEverything

      There is a difference between light itself and reflected light. A full spectrum of light (such as from the sun) can be broken into the component wavelengths such as red yellow green blue etc. But reflected light is the opposite, since the surface which reflects the light is ‘colored’ by which waves which are not absorbed by the surface. Ben Franklin tested this by putting colored pieces of cloth on the snow. White was ‘reflecting’ all of the waves (energy and heat) and did not melt into the snow as quickly as the colors did. Black absorbed the most wave/energy/heat, and sank into the snow the most.

      Skittles have a color based on which wavelengths of light are reflected. A white Skittle would reflect all of the wavelengths of visible light.

  • David

    Another example of how stupid liberals are….

  • Our Bloody Mary Hospital

    This whole ‘race’ crap makes no sense. All these race-baiting idiots are behaving like a white person is a different SPECIES to that of a black person. Dont they understand that we are all Ho&shymo Sapiens? The only real difference is not skin-‘color’ or general appearance, its the language, the mentality (culture) and religious beliefs. But those are exactly the problems the SJW will never address, only the superficial feature of appearance or so-called ‘race’. And if it happens to be because of religion as in Islam, it will be filed under ‘race’.

    I D I O T S !!!

    • Jessica Knorr

      The color of one’s skin does not make one person better than another but there are differences in our races. But differences does not make one superior and another inferior. Just different.

  • NobleDoge

    Skittles deserves stupid people being angry at them after they approved this dumb marketing attempt.

    And so it goes, the Western Canon of thought, art and brilliance has been reduced to a distillate of coloured sugar & red dye #40.

    We are driven inexorably to the most vile within ourselves. We suffer. Only Liberals understand this. Conservatives can only mouthe the words. All else is obsequious Tory pretension. (David)

        • Katherine McChesney

          That is so ridiculous. You know nothing about color fundamentals. I majored in Art and I know what I am talking about.

          • Joseph de Nicola

            You can only say that in the context of art, and nowhere else. Not in optics, nor physics, nor neurology, and especially not sociology or as a club to beat a candy company over the head with. I would point out here that there are no white people nor are there any black people in the world. The lightest pigmented people on earth are a tint of pink, because the colour of their blood shows through their skin, and the darkest pigmented “Black” person is actually a very dark brown. Now if we stop thinking of people as white or black, there is no need to get upset that a candy company has produced white candy. Further, their reasoning was based on optics, since the gay rights movement uses not the palette, but the rainbow as their symbol. You may know about art, and specifically pigment chemistry, but nothing of optics, physics, or neurology, and besides, you are mixing metaphors. In the RAINBOW, white is a colour and black is not; full stop. You are imposing your emotional attachment to words and metaphors onto reality and wanting to dictate that others do the same, and that those who don’t dwell in your particular reality-tunnel are “wrong”. From a page dedicated to the three definitions of colour.

            Colour Theory 1 – Colour as Light

            1. Black is the absence of colour (and is therefore not a colour)

            Explanation:
            When there is no light, everything is black. Test this out by going into a photographic dark room. There are no photons of light. In other words, there are no photons of colours.

            2. White is the blending of all colours and is a colour.

            Explanation:
            Light appears colourless or white. Sunlight is white light that is composed of all the colours of the spectrum. A rainbow is proof. You can’t see the colours of sunlight except when atmospheric conditions bend the light rays and create a rainbow. You can also use a prism to demonstrate this.

            Fact: The sum of all the colours of light add up to white. This is additive colour theory.

            The grey area about black:

            A black object may look black, but, technically, it may still be reflecting some light. For example, a black pigment results from a combination of several pigments that collectively absorb most colours. If appropriate proportions of three primary pigments are mixed, the result reflects so little light as to be called “black.” In reality, what appears to be black may be reflecting some light.
            In physics, a black body is a perfect absorber of light.

            2. White is a colour. White reflects all the colours of the visible light spectrum to the eyes.

            Colour Theory 2 – colour as Pigment or Molecular Colouring Agents

            (Subtractive Colour Theory)

            1. Black is a colour.

            Explanation:
            Here’s a simple way to show how black is made: Combine all three primary colours (red yellow and blue) using a liquid paint or you even food colouring. You won’t get a jet black, but the point will be clear. The history of black pigments includes charcoal, iron metals, and other chemicals as the source of black paints.
            Resource: History of Pigments

            Therefore, if someone argues that black is the absence of colour, you can reply, “What is in a tube of black paint?” However, you must add the fact that black is a colour when you are referring to the colour of pigments and the colouring agents of tangible objects.

            2. White is not a colour.
            … but …. in some cases you could say that white is a colour.

            The grey area:
            Technically, pure white is the absence of colour. In other words, you can’t mix colours to create white. Therefore, white is the absence of colour in the strictest sense of the definition.

            However, when you examine the pigment chemistry of white, ground-up substances (such as chalk and bone) or chemicals (such as titanium and zinc) are used to create the many nuances of white in paint, chalk, crayons – and even products such as Noxema. It’s worth noting that white paper is made by bleaching tree bark (paper pulp). Therefore, you could say that white is a colour in the context of pigment chemistry (but not in any other branch of chemistry).

            In theory, mixing equal amounts of three primary colours should produce shades of grey or black when all three are fully saturated. In the print industry, cyan, magenta and yellow tend to produce muddy brown colours. For this reason, a fourth “primary” pigment, black, is often used in addition to the cyan, magenta, and yellow colours.

            And there is also a third perspective.

            Vision and Reflection

            The final answer to whether black and white are colours takes other factors into consideration.

            Colours exist in the larger context of human vision. Consider the fact that there are three parts to the process of the perception of colour.

            1. The medium – The colour as it exists as a pigment/colourant (such as the colour of a tangible object) or as light (such as the colour of an image on a television screen).

            2. The sender – How the colour is transmitted.

            3. The receiver – How humans see colon. In other words, how we receive information about colour.

            (If a tree falls in the forest and there is nobody around does it make a sound? Does a colour exist if there is no one to see it?)

            The question:
            Are black and white colours?

            The answer:
            The best answer combines both of the theories described in Part 1 and Part 2. Pigments and colouring agents (as described in Part 1) are only half of the answer.

            The colour of a tangible object originates as a molecular colouring agent on the surface of the apple. We see the colour of an object because that object reflects “a colour” to the eye. Every colour is the effect of a specific wavelength.

            In the case of the apple, we see the colour red because the red apple reflects the specific wavelength of red (640 nanometers is red).

            The same theory applies to black and white.

            The question:
            Are black and white colours?

            The answer:
            1. Black is not a colour; a black object absorbs all the colours of the visible spectrum and reflects none of them to the eyes.

            The grey area about black:

            A black object may look black, but, technically, it may still be reflecting some light. For example, a black pigment results from a combination of several pigments that collectively absorb most colours. If appropriate proportions of three primary pigments are mixed, the result reflects so little light as to be called “black.” In reality, what appears to be black may be reflecting some light.
            In physics, a black body is a perfect absorber of light.

            2. White is a colour. White reflects all the colours of the visible light spectrum to the eyes.

            In conclusion

            The colours we see are simply a degree of how much of this colour present in light is reflected. To be completely accurate, a colour reflects the wavelengths in the NM range that our retinal cones respond to.

            The medium is the process of reflection of the wavelength of the colour.
            The receiver is our eyes which receive the wavelength of the colour.

    Maybe they chose white because: 1. White is the presence of all colours 2. The candies have a white shell before they’re dyed anyway and/or 3. Black doesn’t show up well as a food dye without staining anything and everything and no one wants a brown skittle.

  • Anonymous Person

    They weren’t even trying to be racist. Figures that someone would pull the race card.

  • Clifford Quainoo

    Fuck politics for a minute and lets just take a second to realize that we’re getting worked up over a bag of candy. This is why I hate people.

  • Christopher Hungerford

    They should have had skittles with M’s on them.

  • Melissa Marks

    Probably a rejected Halloween idea they had. I don’t think this is discrimination, I think the advertising execs were high, didn’t care, or both.

  • decimator1337

    They should have known better, this would obviously have happened. It would have gone better for them if they’d used grey. See, because white is a symbol of purity. And guess what? The liberals hate purity.

  • ManlyMiketheCOWARD byLOOKS

    Damn you people are idiots if you think this is racist. Hell most of you don’t know what the word means in til you are forced to google the definition.

  • Lauren Ellert

    People are dumb. I guess skittles should have called them “non pigmented” skittles. Skittles are all white on the inside (because they are sugar with a color coating) not because they are a race of human! It was a cute idea skittles but you have to change your terminology.

  • Haley Kaminski

    Nobody would be freaking if they were all black… that’d be cool as fuck. Because anyone sees anything white, they instantly get offended, but we can have black bottled water and everyone thinks it’s the coolest thing ever. Skittles was trying to show equality for genders. Not for races. Stop making everything about you. Equality just means equal. Everything’s the same. So if they were all blue everyone would say wtf too. Just enjoy the mystery of your favourite Skittles and stfu

    • Ray

      Exactly. It was about gender and gay pride. It was meant to show that you cant tell who/what someone is from looks. Thats why theyre all one color.

  • Ben

    Are you F*cking kiddin me? What is wrong with you people? This isn’t racist its a fucking sweet get a grip!

  • John Lawrence

    If they’re so up in arms about white candy, these assbags can go eat some M&Ms. They’re nice and brown.

  • Sandra Ennis

    Not everything that is white is racist it’s candy I bet you wouldn’t have a problem if they were the black edition LMFAO GET A LIFE

  • John David Lindsey

    if Arizona Ice Tea had made white watermelon fruit juice…

  • Heather Noble

    I don’t see color. lol.

  • ed rosa

    Dear Skittles;
    Social justice is cancer and your trying to pander to cancer. Cancer does not give a shit if you pander to it or not; it will still be cancer.

  • Neral Kujata

    “We will never have nor want whiteness!!” wow, is it just me, or is the Racism strong with these ones.

  • Bemyguest

    They are just candy bitches! Oy!

    Liberals are totally gay and by gay I don’t mean gay in the cool hot sexy way Milo Yiannopoulos is gay.

    I mean gay as in the way whiny douchebags like Perez Hilton are gay. Not sexy at all……..

  • TwoHands

    Oy vay

  • Morgan Kodysz

    They obviously didn’t pay attention to art class. White is all colors combined and black is the absence of color. So Skittles was correct. Lib-tards with their degrees don’t even know that! LMAO! #SkittlesforScience!

  • Maestro Luciano

    Interesting. Many of them studies or study “Art” and don’t know basic understanding behind color chemistry. One tip, if you want to apply color, you have to start on white background. That’s how physic works. That’s actually how rainbow works. White light split in to colors by reflection in rain drops.

  • Allison

    I’m sure the skittles taste the same as they always have. I like the idea. And they probably used white packaging with BLACK writing because that is more effective in marketing than a black bag with white writing. And for all you assholes know, the bag could have been designed that way so you can……COLOUR YOUR OWN!

  • Chris Maguschak

    That’s fucking stupid!!! All these goddamn SJW’s making democrats look bad!!!

  • Thomas Mandile

    If you play with stupid people you have to play their stupid game.

  • Jace Burris

    Are people this dumb? I mean I’m a center left myself but man the far left REALLY makes it hard for anyone in the center to be heard… As an LGBT+ person myself I for one think Skittles losing their colors for pride is a very supportive statement and will be getting myself a bag soon.

  • Gary Flores

    this is to show everyone is the same and color doesnt matter. fucking idiots.

  • Karen Garvey

    Wtf… is wrong with people!!!… they may have taken the colour out but if you actually looked the bag (black & white) the skittles white with a black S) stop moaning it’s supposed to help support gay pride and the reason without the colours is because Gay Pride is meant to stand out for a change to let the world’s biggest event that is once a year a chance to shine with the rainbow colours!!!… be thankful anyway as the black actually reflects on the bag and the sweets very nicely and the black compliments and stands out on the white so grow up.

  • Nay Goes Moo

    1. They are white mainly because it is easier to simply not add colouring (as they are white before colour is added) than to use a ton of black dye.
    2.As for why the packet is white…. the exact same reason. Before print, the material is white. Take a look on the inside of any skittles packet and see that it is white.
    3. “They literally erased the rainbow to celebrate pride? How’s that supposed to work?” ….Pride is represented by the rainbow, as are skittles. They removed the colour so they are metaphorically giving their colours to pride in support.
    4. If you are looking at this in the sense of equality: “White is the blending of all colours.”,
    5. Another reason they are all white is so you don’t know the flavour… making it so they are all the same have an equal chance of being eaten instead of the customer picking out their favourites.

  • mad2climbpoppy h

    they should’ve made them black and white *sigh*????????????????????????????????????????????

  • mad2climbpoppy h

    ok… did these morons even read the fucking back!?!

  • Ever.Lasting

    I am finding it difficult to believe that of all the offense people are putting forward that no one has actually taken offense at the real issue here…these are sweets/confectionery for kids, and skittles are endorsing and promoting different kinds of sexual living!! What sort of world are we living in that the first concerns adults have is to indulge themselves in their own childish, self involved and paranoid rants. Children are being indoctrinated prematurely into this messed up world. We should be angry for that and nothing else! Grow up people !

  • Stephanie Hazeem

    people please find real things to be pissed about.

  • Kevin

    What a bunch of dweebs. Worried about what color their crap candy is died.
