...Thanks to a very Woke, young, California teen and his heroic petition, grocery store chain, 'Trader Joe's' is removing all of it's "racist" packaging of it's international lines of foods.

It seems to be some sort of new "racist" cultural-appropriation angle, known now as "exoticism", whereby 'Trader Joe's' is establishing the name 'Joe' as superior to common names in other cultures...or something like that...the logic behind the accusation really doesn't matter too much these days.

Whatever the actual crime may be...suffice it to say that 'Trader Joe's' is obviously somehow "racist"...and it is now bending over backwards to the heroic young wokester and is moving heaven and earth to quickly right it's "racist" wongs.





More than 1,700 people have signed a petition urging Trader Joe’s to change the labeling of some of its international food products, calling the grocery chain’s branding “racist.”

“The grocery chain labels some of its ethnic foods with modifications of “Joe” that belies a narrative of exoticism that perpetuates harmful stereotypes,” the petition, which a California high school senior launched two weeks ago, reads.

It cites “Trader Ming’s,” the grocery chain’s label for its Chinese products, “Arabian Joe,” for its Middle Eastern products, “Trader José,” for its Mexican products, and a handful of others as examples.

“The Trader Joe’s branding is racist because it exoticizes other cultures – it presents ‘Joe’ as the default “normal” and the other characters falling outside of it,” the petition says.


Basically, Trader Joe's gives it's store brands of international foods culture-specific names, using derivatives of the 'Trader Joe' name...
Trader Jose' for it's Mexican food line
Trader Ming's for Chinese food line
Arabian Joe for it's Middle Eastern food line

How this "racist" atrocity has gone on unchecked this long is beyond me.---BUT I KID.

Fair enough I guess, calling trader Joe's stuff trader José in order to try and fit into the prevalent reality is bad!

Just call stuff by its real name, no matter where it is sold, but be prepared for some strange sh** on your shelves.

Stuff you can't even read because YOU ASKED FOR THIS SH**!

Ah the spoils of war. Wokeness at it's peak. This young SJW will surely have many cafe' latte's bought for it.

One day, even today idiots will look back on this and shake their heads. it will take time, as today, they are climbing over themselves in the race to dumb#sville.

Trader Jose' for it's Mexican food line


I can maybe see why some of the rest of those, not that I agree with changing them. But how is trader José racist? Is José not Spanish for Joseph? Is that not literally just still trader Joe's?

Racist against white europeans?

Spanish is a white european language.

The name Taco..


It originated from Mexican silver miners in the 18 th century. Gunpowder was wrapped in a paper like a “taquito” and inserted into rocks before detonation.

By this time, tacos were known as the food of the working class, which included miners. This resulted in their portable street food being called “tacos de minero“, also known as “miner’s tacos”.


As to José which one is trader José... is he the English, Spanish, French, Dutch or Celtic one?

Apparently.
It appears the name Trader Joe is being held up as somehow superior to the more subservient Trader Jose'.
Because only white people are named 'Joe'.

No. A Mexican man named Jose who eats tacos is racist because no Mexican man named Jose has ever eaten a taco in the entire history of Mexico. He also probably didn't wear a sombrero and colorful poncho at the same time. Probably didn't have a moustache either. And it's highly unlikely he said, 'ariba' ever too.

As long as they don't change the recipe, I'll still buy Trader Honky's Miracle Whip and Baloney on White Bread sandwiches.
