Let everyone know how distasteful it is to live in a world full of injustice.
By launching a new ice cream flavor in partnership with Color of Change,
called “Vanilla Privilege”.
If you could guess any flavor that describes the world that we live in,
which one would it be?
Americone Dream? Chip Happens? Brewed to matter?
In a world taught by the perspectives of the colonizers v.s the colonized,

This is a reality.
This is what's happening today.
So please, let us answer this question for you:
The world tastes bitter.
But also very sweet for some of us…
White privilege exists,
and it should be giving ALL of us stomach aches.
So if it were up to us to name an ice cream flavor that describes the world we live in,

This flavor speaks out against injustice.
This is a reminder.
This is how white privilege tastes.
Bitter, harsh, and pungent.
Because injustice should leave an after taste.
