"So we've given up ours to show support".

As reported by Refinery29, the eye-popping treat required a lot of work: First, the Skittles (hundreds of pounds of them!) had to be "hand-sorted by color".

Turkey convicts United Nations judge of 'armed terror group' membership
Meron reported Turkey to the United Nations Security Council in March for failing to comply with an order to release Akay. Akay has strongly denied the allegations, which have caused uproar in the global community.

In case you're wondering (which, I know you probably are), all-white Skittles supposedly still taste fruity and delicious, regardless of their color change. This month, the small west coast chain will be bringing its Pride flavor to each city. For a month called PRIDE.

The shop has locations in San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, and Los Angeles, and has made the Skittles Rainbow Sherbet flavor available for each city's respective Pride Week.

Greater Manchester celebrates the UK's first Clean Air Day
Friends of the Earth Scotland are urging all levels of Government to tackle air pollution by adopting better transport policies. It is estimated that up to 2,000 people die prematurely in Greater Manchester each year due to air pollution.

Skittles, the official "taste the rainbow" sweets ditched its signature rainbow of candy colors in favor of an all white appearance for one reason: to honor June pride month for the second year in a row. All the lentils are white in celebration of pride. "So we're celebrating love and diversity this Pride by giving you a special reaction to use during Pride Month".

Of course, Skittles by no means wanted to celebrate "White Pride".

Where things stand and what comes next — Travel ban
The US 9 Circuit Court of Appeals denied the administration's demand for the travel ban on Monday. The White House said it is confident the high court will uphold Trump's executive order.

While the intention of the Skittles' campaign seems to be in the right place (in regards to supporting the LGBT+ community. not in the other potentially racist regard), the conversations it's caused could be cautionary to brands who want to make sure their message is inclusive of everyone. Or are they just different colors?
