Race on Kinder bars

The article “German Pegida row over non-white photos on Kinder bars” explores reactions to the change in Kinder chocolate packaging.  Some white people were infuriated, saying this was a case of political correctness gone amuck.  It had to be pointed out that the new young men represented on the chocolates were, in fact, Germany’s football team as children.  The article does not address how white people like to use people of color’s bodies for sports, music, or tourism but are not concerned with their safety or social inequality.
