Don't forget about the Land-o-Lakes indian girl
@slapmysalami, *Native American 😜
@dj evolve fan club, *Triggered*
@slapmysalami, they got rid of the Indian but kept the land.
@Sexy Homunculus, best comment I’ve seen on here in a long time. Thanks for the laugh!
@Sexy Homunculus, the colonists purchased Manhattan Island from the natives who owned it, but the Trail of Tears was caused by a democrat
@Sexy Homunculus, motto of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School: Kill the Savage, save the man.
@Good Pineapple Pizza, the US government caused the trail of tears, doesn't really matter what party.
Fvck the ATF
@Ajunta Pall, just got my first can! It’s feckin awesome
Why don't they just change the name to Uncle Chad?
Because everyone will bitch there's not enough diversity...
As a black person i %100 agree with this action. Carry on.
@RonWillis, Uncle Ben agrees
I laughed when I saw the name change on the news... everyone too woke
Remember kids, nothing says equality like removing all ethnicity from products.
@WaifuLaifu, ...And erasing history, even if it is an accomplishment by a black person, as well as renaming things named after white people to black people.
Cancel culture on the left, cancel culture on the right
@dj evolve fan club,
Talk, don't fight
Non American here. Did someone get offended with the logo/portrait?
@hasher2288, yes. Twitter called it racist and so it became racist. Uncle Ben’s was also labeled racist by Twitter.
@hasher2288, yes the claim is that it followed the Mammy caricature of a black woman who worked as a housekeeper for white people, a common profession after slavery and into the first half of the 20th century given the racial landscape. Now considered offensive as it perpetuates the idea a major role for a black person is to serve a white person. Given it fit the caricature perfectly and it came into existence in the late 1800s theres and EXTREMELY high chance the mascot was created with heavy racist overtones.
@SteveTheAlpaca, you’re a white person, aren’t you.
@Hot Coffee, thankyou. But what makes it racist? Is she the creator of the product? Wouldn't that be more empowering for a women that are business focused?
@hasher2288, dude, it’s Twitter. Does it have to be racist to get called racist?
It seems Aunt Jemima was a promotional gimmick. A woman named Nancy Green was hired to play the role 1890 by the pancake mix maker and was basically responsible for the success of the product, so much so that when she died in the early 20s the brand faltered and had to be sold.
So no. Not racist. They just removed the legacy of a US slave born black woman because of a bunch of white Twitter shïts.
But...he’s pouring Aunt Jemima into another bottle of Aunt Jemima...
He’s not pouring the new in the old.
@Nurse Joy, It's after they took her face off the bottle but before they changed her into a bread mill
Keep it living on
I still find the small bottles with aunt jemima on it. Picked up two bottles last week
Who still buys Aunt Jemima? Who buys corn syrup at all? Switch to maple, you heathens!
it’s a shame. they took her black face off the bottle. how does that help?
@My Opinion is Trash , supporting black people in culture…by removing black people from culture???
This will be followed by blacks saying they should be represented more in culture
If this offends you, you could always just buy real maple syrup that doesn’t have faces on it.
So you’re keeping her a house...never mind.
1. Do you literally have nothing better to do with your time than transfer syrup between bottles so you can keep old branding on the bottle? Is your time that worthless?
2. Assuming you don't like the change, you are rewarding them by still buying the product. For them a sale is a sale, so if they can still sell to you who is offended they made the change and then sell to others who were offended before but won't be now, you are going to make it more likely for that type of thing to continue happening.
That’s also my Glock
