Keep with the fake outrage like you give a rats ass


Oh wow. What a sad little puppy you are. I actually pity you because your heart is so full of ugly. I've read this entire exchange, and whatever you think of your political/ideological counterparts, they took the time and effort to actually see this woman for the individual she is, her own accomplishments and achievements after being born into one of the most horrendous situations possible, living through a war that was hell on earth, and yet she had the strength and fortitude to keep going, keep living, keep progressing.

You've shown absolutely no appreciation for her -- or anyone -- as a person or collectively. You cannot cite or claim any good for anyone that can or should come from erasing her legacy. No higher purpose or value. You cannot do anything but spew hate and mockery and contempt. You aren't trying to build or create anything better. You aren't trying to lift anyone up, much less everyone. You just want to destroy for its own sake. To hurt for its own sake. To tear down and gloat over the broken hearts and bodies and people.

I can't imagine living with so much ugly in my heart. I pity you. I hope one day you find something actually worth fighting for, something or someone worth building up instead of tearing down, something worth living for.

I get what you are saying about companies have to change, sometimes big changes to maintain revenue. Calling people babies with warped minds though for just wanting the truth about how the iconic symbol was a real person I do not get.

This woman's whole legacy is now trampled on. As the OP stated, her status allowed her to shine a beacon on poverty and civil rights. Same with Gone With The Wind. That movie had the first black Academy Award winner.

Cancel culture cancels more that just negative. It also cancels some remarkable and inspiring people that paved the way for others.

General Lee was defeated. He surrendered wearing the uniform of a private on a donkey. His officers wanted to keep it going with gorilla tactics (terrorism) but he refused. Some estimates say they could have done it for decades with ambushes and attacks on small outposts. He took the high road and ended it. He wasn't some animal like people who lose today. Look at Hillary. She could learn something from General Lee. Still bitter and blaming her defeat on everyone but herself.

I think it is shameful that they are taking her picture off of the bottle, she deserves to be displayed on that bottle. To take her picture off would be racist, but the crazy young do not see that. The new politically correct is not right at all.

Think about Uncle Bens rice too, what is wrong with that, yet they are doing a racist act by eliminating his picture on the box too. I liked both of those products, I grew up with them. I could never have equated aunt Jemima's picture on the bottle with racism...Colonal Sanders picture is on KFC, is that racist now. The left is making way too much out of things.

I will repeat, taking a black womans picture off of a popular fake syrup that actually tastes decent if you like fake syrup, is racism. I suppose they won't be able to put a picture of a Maple tree on real maple syrup in the future because that discriminates against other trees.

This is not the world I was brought into, people are taking way too much out of context while not looking at the whole picture. I do not want to live in a world where you have to be afraid that something you bought or something you said will allow others to call you bad names. I have nothing against coats made out of real fir, or buckskin gloves or leather jackets. But some people do, that is a an abuse of power when someone forces their doctrine and beliefs down others throats and trashes them just because they stick up for a black woman's picture on a bottle of syrup, she earned that right to have her picture on that bottle, she probably really appreciated it....it made her famous. Sure crush a black person's dreams because some idiots thinks it really matters.

Who gives a $#!+ about advertising?

It's just used as group psychology to manipulate the masses in the name of greed.

All brought to you by Sigmund Freud's nephew, Edward Bernays.

I support the change of not only Aunt Jemima rebranding but of all products.

I'd like to see all products in plain black and white packaging with the words, 'consume' and 'obey' written on everything.

If you guys are so sore about the fallen Aunt Jemima, go out and erect a statue in her likeness. But don't confuse her with Mrs. Butterworth, that will be a PR disaster.

youtu.be...

I'm not sure, but I think Aunt Jemima is Uncle Ben's baby momma.
