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.

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 signalling pinheads literally erased the American Indian and kept the land! You can’t make this stuff up!
