Every commercial ends with "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids." It could just as easily be "Silly rabbit, Trix are for white folk" or "Silly rabbit, Trix are for native americans." What those little bastard children are saying is "Silly rabbit, you aren't one of us we aren't going to share."

Don't worry in Asian markets Trix's elitist views didn't work out all that well: http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=SVp1QpuuRSU

Good point, they are covered in WHITE POWDER... and Powder was the whitest dude alive... until I killed him to regain my title.

I am once again Captain Caucasian, and my superpower is that I have the ability to blind people by taking off my shirt and reflecting the suns rays. I know, not the best superpower but you gotta work with what ya got.

The phrase "She's a Trick-ass Bitch" gets thrown around so much these days.

It does promote a feeling of elitism, but elitism within itself isn't that bad. We ARE elite, in our society, compared to rabbits.

Of course, if you see rabbits as a certain class, I certainly understand where you are coming from.

Oh, so all food should be shared equally with rabbits then?

All the slogan says is that the cereal is designed to be eaten by young children. That isn't racism. Also, you can make just about anything racist if you change some of the words. Tony the Tiger: "Theeyy'rrreeee Aryan!"

Well as a logical person, i always thought...

"Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids"...

Was really saying (to kids on kids TV networks) "Hey Kids! This cereal is just for you and its super special because of it. Look at the funny white rabbit go!"

Never did it cross my mind as a child, "Hey that rabbit should get some trix too! Its so mean that the kids wont let him have any".

If anything i always thought that the dumbass rabbit should have eaten the trix before he brought the damned bowl with him to the kids. Trix promotes nothing but consumerism, you are mistaken sir.

I know you are young and don't have much street cred or experience so permit me to school ya'

Whores, hookers, street ladies, prostitutes, whichever term you care to use are NOT the trick, the trick is the person paying them for their services, in other words the john. the customer.

The overseer is the pimp, the mack etc

I suggest you listen to any one of the many 1990s gangsta rap albums where they talk about pimping, ho's and tricks

yeah, "she's a trick-ass beeyatch: means that she sells her ass to tricks

As the seminal proto type hip hop group The Last Poets rapped, "the record label is the pimp, the artist is the ho' and the audience is the trick"

That's a good first step, lingo is ancient school. Try to get your slang on, learn the new speak. I am not fully familiar with the complete milennial update but I am fairly current, yet my natural flow is chock full of 70s and 80s phrases, words, slang and sayings. I have never talked ghetto or eubonics, even as a young teen hitting the streets, getting my cred on and making my bones.
