Time to ban 'Uncle Remus' fables.



Written by an old southern white guy.

www.post-gazette.com...

Did he preserve authentic African-American fables for history...culturally appropriate them...or both?

It's called "waffle syrup" because it contains no real maple syrup. It is corn syrup with artificial coloring. If you think you like aunt Jemima syrup, try real maple syrup and your breakfast game will change forever.

I thought about that, but a plastic bottle is beyond worthless.

What if I told you that a large amount of the population have tried maple syrup (as evidenced by its presence on Walmart shelves) and many still prefer their "inferior" "cheapo" brands?

Aunt Jemima was never at the top of the list... OG Glass Bottle Mrs Butterworths was where it's at.

REAL Maple syrup is thin and hits the wrong sweet note for me... and it's WAAAAY overpriced.

Sounds like folks are voting with their wallets.

It's funny I was thinking that as I was writing that. The taste of real maple syrup needs to grow on you if you are used to eating the corn syrup brands. When I first tried real maple syrup, I didn't like it either, the taste was too aromatic. After a while it grew on me and now I can't go back to the corn syrup brands. Comparable to the necessity to acclimate your taste buds to beer, IPA, and so on

Maybe they can name it Karen's Pancake Butt Mix and Syrup? That would make everyone who matters happy.

People so resistant to change.

Nothing should change ever!!!!!!


People so resistant to just growing up and ignoring # you don't like.


Like all the people in here crying about syrup
hahahahahah

gotta be outraged yo


Syrup brand deemed offensive after 85 years and people cry to have it changed.

People ask why not just avoid the brand if it's offensive.

People who say to avoid it are then said to be crying.


Good one. No hypocrisy to see there....

And BTW... Anna Short Harrington, born in 1897 in Marlboro County, South Carolina, began her career as Aunt Jemima in 1935. She had to support her five children, and she moved with her family to Syracuse, New York, where she cooked for a living. Quaker Oats discovered her when she was cooking at a fair. She made enough money to buy a large house and even rent rooms out.

Just remember, it's her name and image you're all for destroying. You should be proud.


Wonder why they didn't just call the Brand 'Aunt Harrington'.


Because the Davis Milling Company changed their name to Aunt Jemima Mills in 1913 before Quaker bought them out in 1926 and used Aunt Jemima as one of their trademarks. I guess they decided to stick with Aunt Jemima since it was already well known.

May I suggest trying a real birch syrup?

Maple produces sucrose, which may be that unwanted sweet note. Birch contains fructose.

who would have thought a private company changing there logo to keep up with the times, seeing as all they are interested in is making money, 2 threads on ATS about it now though, its the end of times!!!!


Keep up with the times? Anna Harrington did what many blacks weren't able to do back in the 30's and 40's and you think that removing her is "keeping up with the times"?

Thank you.
All these people arguing over fake syrup.

Real syrup is so much better, and has actual health benefits.

And I say good! It's long overdue unlike you I won't miss it one bit

From the same racists mindset as gator bait babies, which harkened back to a time when degenerate white men would take black babies and used them as bait, yes this was actually a thing.


Yup this too.



The great Commodore Perry introduced this image to Asia, in 1854 in some small corner in a lot Asian countries it's still a thing, I will feel no lost of nostalgia.
These images tho they make some attempt to clean it up , but they still stunk and do no honor to enslaved Fulani rice cultivators whose skill made that industry possible in America.

Thanks for sharing those images....history was odd. I grew up reading old, worn Brer Rabbit books. My grandmother taught in a 1 room school house, and when it closed to consolidate into a larger district she took some of the old books and stuff. I have to say, i see the concern. But as a kid, the tarbaby book to me was just a silly book without any deeper meaning. Lord knows my grandmother would have never let me pick up such an impression...she was a cherokee that hated the prejudice that happened in America.

Commodore Perry...he has this really badass estate in Austin that is currently being renovated from a school into a super posh luxury hotel. The groundskeeper for them is a pretty close friend of mine, among a few other connections I have to the property (their owner pays my salary).

it should be an amazing place. I was aware of who the dude was, but know no details about him in any way. Interesting to see part of his impact in life beyond his wealth and military history.
