Finally, I can eat my food without seeing colored folk in my house.
@Cjko27, that was terrible. I might have laughed though
@Jolee Bindo, I definitely laughed, the bluntness of it caught me way off guard.
@Cjko27, fvck dude the thought of a racist dude saying that in front of somebody who supports it putting them in a catch 22 makes me smile
@Cjko27, yeah people are just too sensitive. These brands have been around for years. If you dont like it, buy something else. #justiceforauntjemima
What the hell did snap crackle and pop do
@The Unknowns, you don't wanna know.
@The Unknowns, slave owners every one of them.
@The Unknowns, white cis males
@The Unknowns, the question I wanted answered
@Fencingfiend93, apparently someone was upset because they were 3 white kids, but Coco Pops had a monkey.
I can’t understand some people’s logic.
@DaddyWurzel, the problem is the people are selfe absorbed twats that think the earth should revolve around them. The problem is that companies now listen to them for some reason even though they are devoid of reason
companies need to get leaders with a backbone again instead of people who have apparently sucked dick to get where they are and don't know how to stop now that they are at the top
@G1ngerB0y, that's two "the problems"...
@The Unknowns, friends of Epstein
The real irony is that the companies that are changing their logos are erasing the history of the people they are based on. Like Aunt Jemima, she worked her ass off and now they are just erasing her contributions to the brand. Even her great grandson is pissed they are just erasing her legacy because some losers are offended by it.
@ThatGuyx79, I kinda want to buy a bottle of syrup now before it's discontinued. It could be worth a lot 40-50 years from now
@ThatGuyx79, it would make sense if Aunt Jemima was real. The problem is, she's not. She was conceptualized in the mid-1800's when the owner of the company was watching a minstrel act of someone in blackface. I'm not going to pretend and say the issue hasn't come to light because of recent protests, but giving the brand mascot a more thorough look shows that it makes sense to want to drop the character. The character itself is derived from a stereotype rather than a real person, so removing the mascot seems like the best move.
@ThatGuyx79, is this some reference i don't get? Aunt jemima is a fictional character. How does she have a great grandson?
@Sexy Homunculus, Isn't that Mrs. Buttersworth?
@Hoopscallion, the food mascot lore goes pretty deep
@PacificaPelican, you're telling me if I'd known half this stuff I'd been proud to eat the brown corn syrup. But it turns out that uncle Ben's rice may just be a cool guy the makes knew a block away.
@Hoopscallion, google Larnell Evans Sr. He is the great grandson of Anna Short Harrington who’s likeness was used for the representation of Aunt Jemima. Quaker Oats actually had her travel around the country to serve pancakes.
@ThatGuyx79, I went ahead and looked this up. So Anna Short Harrington was one of several black women who portrayed the Aunt Jemima character, and she started this career in 1935. She was actually the fourth woman to portray Aunt Jemima, and the brand was invented in 1914. However, according to Wikipedia, the idea for Aunt Jemima came from a minstrel show featuring a song called "Old Aunt Jemima" which allegedly featured white males in blackface.
EDIT: The brand Aunt Jemima debuted in 1889, and 1914 was when it got really popular.
Wait, am I missing something? What’s the “stereotype” in the Rice Krispies mascots?
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, wrong mascot, Kellogg's got some flack but defended thier Coco pops mascot. It's really dumb because it takes away from some of the actually stereotypical ones.
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, rice has previously been used as a derogatory term for white guys. I have heard that it is possibly going away since it's 3 white guys on a box of rice....
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, IDK maybe they're homosexual?
@LookOutASni, a guy with an elf fetish can dream can't he?
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, apparently the issue is that rice crispies are represented by 3 white boys whilst the coco (brown) version is represented by a monkey. Usually I am very open minded about when things like this are offensive particularly about race but I believe that coco the monkey has a legitimate back story which is not about race but aboit the origin of the ingredients
@Hold your horses, wow. Shows how disconnected I am from the wonderful world of processed cereal.
As a partial indian (Cherokee, I also have African blood as well) I was very bugged when I heard about the hawt Indian girl getting removed. Removing her is more racist than having her on there, its an honor to habe her on there and they removed it its stupid same with most the others as well. Just stop buying the products and hope the companies get the point
@G1ngerB0y, it’s all about power and controlling the conversation.
Look up what Malcom X had to say about liberals.
Companies might as well stand up to these people because their thirst to destroy everything will never end.
@CrazyRightWinger, but when you have sucked dick so long to get in a position of control you don't know how to stop apparently.
I usually don't accuse people of sucking dick to get to the top but with all these companies bowing to every vocal minority that thows a fit on Twitter its the only thing that makes sense to me
If you are offended by food logos and mascots you are in for a life time of hardships. Cry over something worth crying over for fvcks sake!!
@UglyNakedGuy, buu... bu... BUT MAH OFFENDEDNESS.
You must be a nazi.
Or worse, a republican.
@Hot Coffee, lol you must be a fragile snowflake
So I looked into this about snap crackle and pop. Turns out, there were very few news articles about them. But what I found was an article referencing the source of the fuss about them - an article on garbage Breitbart basically complaining that people are calling out cereal mascots as racist. But in reality, literally nobody has any problem with them until the smoke and mirrors act of Breitbart appeared and made up the whole hoopla. So now we’re all trashing on literally nobody. This is what bugs be about PC stuff. Typically, I’m with you guys, it’s a bit over the top policing everything these days. But what I hate the most is when it’s literally a non issue, yet people try to trash on PC culture for completely made up things, like snap crackle pop. Shít on things that exist and are dumb, like this - if there were actually a bunch of Karen’s complaining lol
best part is that the stats show aunt jemima is by far the most popular syrup among the black community. and clearly we need to tell them they should be offended
