    I obviously was asking Superbad if he knew about White Southerners referring to some Black men as "Uncle". Just curious how widespread it was. He said no.

    So now what is your point??

    Yup and we once called all copies Xerox copies.......and when I was a kid dads would Simonize the family car even if it was with Turtle wax or Blue Coral they were using. Some people referre to their frigerator as the Frigidaire even if it was a Westington or a GE.

    disagree most consumers of this syrup are white and prefer a submissive black woman as the logo

    they will be bankrupt because their brand was ruined by politically correct socialist justice commies.

    I'm not sure why you relate this story to Indian charities or BET.

    To show the silliness that is going on in the country today. What are we going to do, ban all symbols of all groups. so that no-one can possible be offended? Are all shirts and outerwear going to be the next targets? Oh wait they already are. MAGA wear is taboo. The statues left standing today may very well be the statues that get torn down tomorrow. Are charities going to be the next targets? I have been threatened a few times from companies that had goals they wanted to meet with 100% participation, and when I asked if any monies supported plan parenthood, and they said it did, I bulked. We have the left who has been trying for years to water down and dilute conservative talk radio and media with the commerce fairness act.

    The depictions are clear and it looks like several posters have attempted to explain this to you. There really is no point because you think you are right and won't consider the idea that you may not be.

    Racism (all discrimination, actually) is often subtle unless you are the one being marginalized.

    Went to Publix today and y'all should've seen all the commotion. Aunt Jemima, Mrs. Butterworth, and Uncle Ben were protesting, Texas Pete and Capt. Morgan were getting drunk, Little Debbie was working the corner, and Jimmy Dean was showing everybody his sausage. The world has gone crazy. Somebody call Mr. Clean!!

    :applause:- In other news - At the same Publix, "Aunt Ruthie" was apparently spotted walking hand in hand with a mild mannered, elderly, colored gent who used to drive Miss Daisy. Bluesguy was elated and overcome with nostalgia, as this enchanting scene caused him to reminisce about good blacks of lore whom he dearly loved, during childhood days of nirvana on the set of "The Help" . Just kidding Bluesguy ... juuust kidding ...

    Change all the logos to white people.

    Black people should be happy.

    White people won't care.

    Win/win for everyone, yes?

    I am curious as to why all of a sudden social justice warriors want to erase all black history and images. Does this mean there will be no more black actors? Are blacks images to be removed from all advertising. I would think any self-respecting person of color would be offended by the leftist movement and their condescending attitude.

    I know. Look at all these pathetic little snowflakes, crying because their syrup bottle is going to have a different appearance.

    I read that it's a reaction to a video that a black lady posted about how not to make a racist breakfast, in which she takes out a box of Aunt Jemima pancake mix and gets rid of the contents by pouring it down her kitchen sink. The video went viral. I watched the video after I read about it but I can't confirm that this was the catalyst.

    Oh and I won't get rid of my pancake mix or syrup. The people who are complaining about the symbolism are right but they already gave her a makeover and there are bigger fish to fry.

    Thank you, I rolled my eyes at Miss Ruthie, too. Who knows if she was real but that would explain alot about his posts. In honor of Juneteenth / Happy Juneteenth to you!

    and just because...

    I wont get rid of mine either, and FWIW, I tend to be brand loyal, if the name changes I'm likely to just switch to another brand that I've heard of. For example I like diet pepsi, but if for some reason they change their name to Diet Juke, I'm likely just going to buy diet coke, I can't tell the difference anyway.

    The whole thing is just "odd" but hey, whatever floats their boat.

    Trying to Rebrand a flavor of corn syrup looks like an uphill battle to me.
