The catch phrase "Taste the rainbow" is pretty well known, but Skittles have recently turned the concept on its head for a very special reason.  In an attempt to show support for pride month, Skittles turned their rainbow sweets white, and Twitter, well, they aint having it.

Despite the obvious reason behind the change as explained by their campaign slogan, “During Pride, only one rainbow matters. So we’ve given up ours to show our support,” many are calling the candy an act of white supremacy.

Unsurprisingly, people were also calling out for a mixed bag of white and black skittles.

While Skittles obviously meant no harm, a lot of people aren't surprised with the response, and say Skittles should know better.

Tell us what you think! Are these all white Skittles racist?
