The Rubiks Cube - Harmless, Clever 80s Game, or Sinister Bigoted Agenda!?

The Rubik's Cube is such an ingrained part of American culture since its introduction in the 80s and subsequent wild popularity that we hardly even look at it twice. It's a cube! What's to see? Six sides, six colors, twist to solve, yadda yadda. But look closer. WHAT colors are there?

The primary colors are all present: Red, Yellow, Blue.

The secondary colors are all present: Orange, Green, and ... White?

Where the hell is Purple, the CLEAR natural color to balance the scheme out? What possible reason could there be to exclude just one of the secondary colors, throwing everything off in favor of white?

Maybe it wasn't an aesthetic decision. Maybe it was a political one. Erno Rubik, the inventor of the cube, was born in 1944 in Budapest, Hungary. Know what else was going on in Hungary in 1944? That's right, an alliance with the Axis powers in central Europe aimed at world domination and the propagation of the "master race" ... ahem, the WHITE race.

The systematic discrimination and persecution of all things purple is no less than a Nazi plot initiated during World War 2 and carried forward into the present day by sinister agents such as Erno Rubik and their vile legacies, seeking to eradicate all things purple and replace them with white.

We are Purple, and we will NOT be held down. We will NOT be silenced. We will ROAR!
