Who has nothing but love and good memories when the name Aunt Jemima is brought up?
Really, most black people think this white Democrat virtue signalling is just plain stupid. Think about it. She was fired for the color of her skin.
Great-grandson of ‘Aunt Jemima’ is outraged over decision to ‘erase’ family legacy
Quaker Oats announced Wednesday the immediate rebranding of its Aunt Jemima breakfast line, claiming the company name and logo perpetuate “racial stereotypes.” The move came in response to a renewed national discussion about the far-reaching impacts of racism.

“Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype,” the company said.
Now, the great-grandson of “Aunt Jemima” is speaking out, criticizing the move.
Larnell Evans Sr. told Patch that the attempt by Quaker Oats to rewrite history is a great “injustice.”
“This is an injustice for me and my family. This is part of my history, sir,” Evans said. “The racism they talk about, using images from slavery, that comes from the other side — white people.”
“This company profits off images of our slavery. And their answer is to erase my great-grandmother’s history. A black female,” he added. “It hurts.”
According to Patch, Evans’ great-grandmother — the late Anna Short Harrington — succeeded Nancy Green, a former enslaved woman, as the face of the Aunt Jemima brand in the early 1920s.
Barry Curtis comments:
A great woman erased from history.
The branding of the syrup was a tribute to this woman’s gifts and talents. Now future generations will not even know this beautiful woman existed. What a shame. The world knew her as “Aunt Jemima”, but her given name was Nancy Green and she was a true American success story.
Green was born a slave in 1834 Montgomery County, KY. and became a wealthy superstar in the advertising world, as its first living trademark. Green was 56-yrs old when she was selected as spokesperson for a new ready-mixed, self-rising pancake flour and made her debut in 1893 at a fair and exposition in Chicago. She demonstrated the pancake mix and served thousands of pancakes, and became an immediate star.
Green was a good storyteller, her personality was warm and appealing, and her showmanship was exceptional. Her exhibition booth drew so many people that special security personnel were assigned to keep the crowds moving. Nancy Green was signed to a lifetime contract, traveled on promotional tours all over the country, and was extremely well paid.
Her financial freedom and stature as a national spokesperson enabled her to become a leading advocate against poverty and in favor of equal rights for all Americans. She maintained her job until her death in 1923, at age 89.
This was a remarkable woman, and sadly she has been ERASED by politics. I wanted you to know and remind you in this ridiculous cancel culture time period.
Land-O-Lakes butter idiocy:
This is no different than Land-O-lakes butter taking the lovely female Indian off their package. Irony of ironies – these virtue signaling pinheads literally erased the American Indian and kept the land! You can’t make this stuff up!
