M&M candy in hot water with the ACLU
The ACLU is accusing Mars, the candy company, of discriminatory practices because of their M&M candy. The ACLU cites the name of the candy as their main evidence, saying…
“They [Mars] could have picked any letter, but they chose ‘M’, and coated their chocolate in a rainbow of colors, and you expect us to believe that this choice was just a fluke?”
The ACLU in support of the LGBT community is demanding that Mars Candy offer at least an F&F option, but would prefer to see not only F&F candy (using plaid candy coating, of course) but also varieties to include M&F, B&B, as well as T&T chocolate.
Mars, has refused my request for an interview, saying that I’m crazy and that the ACLU has filed no such complaint, and that it would be ridiculous for them to do so. I personally think that they are stalling, until they have had the time to revamp their production lines to add the new lettering on their candy. I am just glad that the ACLU always picks the fights that others are afraid to pick. The fear of looking like a fool is not an easy one to overcome.
