your Big Boy depiction does none of that.
Stick a black man caricature in checked overalls and call him anybody's "Big Boy" and tell me the fur would not fly over it. Methinks you're blinded by color, which is 180 degrees opposite the color blindness that you seem to want white America to exhibit.

With talk of reparations...it's pretty convenient that Quaker couldn't find those contracts which may have planted a seed in the minds of many that the courts are available to go directly to the source of those who profited from black oppression.
When Justin Bieber made his apology for profiting from black culture, I was p*ssed. Not because I think he shouldn't apologize, but because if that's his confession, then he should be held accountable. All of the elite falling all over themselves to confess their sins should have their empty apologies treated very, very seriously.
Their confessions are everywhere and they have the profit to evidence those confessions. Why don't black Americans file a class action lawsuit against every elitist celeb, corporation, politician, etc. to recover from the financial injuries they confess they are responsible for?
The elite want the 99% to pay for them. That's why I think Quaker is happy to *gesture* instead of pay up.
I think the elite are happy to see reminders of terrible times in history erased.
Cultural appropriation can be defined as the “cherry picking” or selecting of certain aspects of a culture, and ignoring their original significance for the purpose of belittling it as a trend. Appreciation is honoring and respecting another culture and its practices, as a way to gain knowledge and understanding

It’s the forcing of the change people resist. Age 10 years and you too will resist forced change. A movement will come you aren’t a part of and change things around you in time, but it’s just the change you are resisting, not the force...

If it were so offensive then why has it taken 130 years for people to complain about it?
