Corporate America Bombards Black People With Junk Food Ads

A new study reveals corporate America disproportionately targets Black and Hispanic consumers with junk food, such as candy, sugary drinks, snacks, and fast food, more than any other race. 

The Rudd Center for Food and Policy Health at the University of Connecticut found Black youth and adults were subjected to 21% more junk food ads than their white counterparts. Researchers said corporate America boosted their advertising budgets on Spanish-speaking television stations as a total proportion of their ad budget.

As the advertising industry drastically changes, companies are embracing celebrities and influencers to promote their products on television and social media. Researchers said advertisers hired celebrities from Black and Hispanic communities to encourage young people of color to purchase junk food. 

Many of these celebrities are idolized by consumers and will mimic their trends, even if that’s unhealthy eating habits. 

In the midst of the worst obesity epidemic this nation has ever faced, corporate America employs an army of influencers to bombard people of color with ads for junk food. Data shows nearly 20% of all children are obese, and rates are much higher among children of color: 26.2% of Hispanic children and 24.8% of Black children. This is compared with 16.6% of white children. 

Here are some of those ads: 

Eating junk food is linked to a higher risk of obesity, depression, digestive issues, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and early death. Some scientists warn that highly-processed foods should be reclassified as a “drug” because they are as addictive and harmful as cigarettes, according to Daily Mail

People should question the motives behind corporate America disproportionately targeting communities of color with junk food. Perhaps, there’s more to the story than just sales…

Kanye West Set to Appear on Alex Jones Show

First time ever meeting between two of the most controversial men in America.

Kanye ‘Ye’ West is set to make a first time ever appearance on the Alex Jones Show today as he continues to build momentum for a presidential run in 2024.

Although the two have been in contact for a while, with Ye even mentioning Jones in some of his lyrics, it appears as though this will be the first actual meeting between them.

Ye appeared on Tim Pool’s podcast earlier this week, although the show didn’t quite go as expected when West walked out after about 20 minutes when Pool offered some pushback against his claims about Jewish power interests.

As we previously highlighted, Ye visited Mar-a-Lago for a dinner with President Trump last week, accompanied by Milo Yiannopoulos and controversial Groyper leader Nick Fuentes.

Dubbed #Dinnergate by the media, Trump was accused of fraternizing with anti-Semites after he reportedly said he was very impressed with Fuentes.

Trump subsequently denied knowing who Fuentes was until he met him at the dinner.

Ye said he asked Trump to be his running mate in 2024 during the dinner, an invitation that didn’t go down very well, with Kanye, Yiannopoulos and Fuentes leaving not long after.

Kanye appearing on the Alex Jones Show is sure to provoke another round of media hysteria given the level of vilification both have received recently at the hands of the press.
