I'm having one of those Mandela effect moments ... I thought they announced that they were changing the name to "MRS. Jemima" several years ago? Way past time!

Is "Uncle Bens" rice gonna be "Mr Bens" now?.

I thought so, too. I thought the name & packaging were redesigned at least a decade ago. Even if management doesn't get the effect of the imagery, how can they think this sort of Jim Crow era brand promotes their product? It's just bad business if nothing else.

I'm constantly surprised how upset people get over this. Why? Were they upset when Federal Express changed their name to FedEx? Land O Lakes Butter removed the Native American maiden from their packaging for several weeks before anyone noticed, and then people got upset when it was pointed out. Did it really effect their life?


porkchopbob - 6/17/2020 at 09:07 PM

They have changed Aunt Jemima considerably over the years, but it was still born out of a minstrel song. It was probably going to happen sooner or later, but considering the climate, but when products are owned by a major corporation, why would they risk being anywhere near the conversation?

Naturally, The Onion beat them to it.

Where is the racism with Aunt Jemima? To me it just looks like a southern woman who is a great cook. That pancake mix is the best. So is Uncle Ben's rice.

They started this b.s. with Mia, the Indian lady on Land of Lakes Margarine. Traditionally women are the cooks in the family.

What's next is someone going to say Captain Crunch promotes terrorist pirates? This stuff has to stop.

It's just silly, reading into things.

I'm surprised you missed that Jim Crow era invention of the Black Mammy stereotype. Taken from the late 19th century into the 1950s the fat, dark-skinned woman (who wasn't a slim, light-skinned temptation to the man of the house) merely moved from being a house slave into a domestic low-wage worker good for cooking & cleaning. The 1st Aunt Jemimah pancake mix was developed in the late 1890s & the ads used drawings of a former slave Nancy Green who also made appearances at expositions on behalf of the company. She wasn't paid. She was exploited. Her likeness was also on recipe books, mugs, cookie jars, and other collectibles for which she received no compensation. After her death in the 1920s, the company updated her look to be more modern but still subservient to her white employer in the kitchen. By the 1980s, both Whoopi Goldberg & Oprah started buying the collectibles - which decorate many southern kitchens in the present - to keep them out of circulation as well as to remind themselves & their audiences that black women had a long way to go to break out of non-domestic careers.

Or are you just offended that they decided to be less racist?

adhill58 - 6/18/2020 at 01:42 PM

I heard a guy on NPR yesterday saying that the marketing of Aunt Jemima (as a smiling domestic servant) in the early 1900s was appealing to the idea that a black person was happiest while satisfying the needs of white people. Marketing professionals have always known what their audience wants to hear. Think of the audacity of Camel Cigarettes having "doctors" in their advertising as late as the 1960s.

This thread was a set up anyway

Lots of threads start this way.

The topic isn't pointless given that companies interested in their bottom line as well as a mission statement to investors are taking a look at their brand image - Land O'Lakes, Uncle Ben's, Aunt Jemima, & Cream of Wheat.

UVA also redesigned its 2-month old redesigned athletic logo after George Floyd's killing when it was pointed out to them that the Cavalier's swords had chained handles representative of the Jefferson-designed chained walls that hid the original black slaves/employees from view. Virginia needs a lot of hand-holding to get them into the 21st century.

Are these big deals in the scheme of things? Not individually, but taken together, it demonstrates some awareness that racism is unacceptable has penetrated corporate minds.

Why are most of the fast food restaurants staffed by blacks and Latinas?

Because we still have a paradigm of them serving everyone else. Will they get offended when I want extra syrup for my French toast sticks or pancakes since we have this whole Aunt Jemimah thing going on?

Fast food restaurants employ whoever they can get for the least amount of money. Apparently in your area that appears to be blacks and Latinas (not necessarily the case where I live). I doubt they care about the extra syrup you may use unless you ask for it in a rude or condescending way. Pretty sure most of them didn't dream of the day they would serve you your fast food. If they could find a better job, then they would.

I guess now isn't a real great time to pitch my idea for Taliban Tasteez, little turban shaped donuts - the logo a cute lil cartoon Afghani named Sinbad on a flying carpet bringing Taliban Tasteez to all the happy Americans, with the slogan "Taliban Tasteez - They're TERRORIFIC!"

Cracker Jack Changes Name To More Politically Correct Caucasian Jack


https://babylonbee.com/news/cracker-jacks-changes-name-to-more-politically- correct-caucasian-jacks

PLANO, TX—When ballparks finally open again, those standing for the traditional seventh-inning stretch will be singing some different lyrics to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

After over 100 years of selling its caramel popcorn snack under the name Cracker Jack, Frito-Lay announced today that it would be rebranded as the less offensive "Caucasian Jack."

"We are very sorry to all the crack---er, I mean, Caucasians we have hurt over the years," said a spokesperson. "Cracker is an offensive stereotype, and we must make sure that all foods and snack products are culturally sensitive. Think about all the white people who have had to suffer in silence as tens of thousands of baseball fans sang out the hurtful lyrics 'Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks.'"

"No more. The bigotry stops today."

The move was applauded by hurt white people, though they are still criticizing Frito-Lay for how pale and pasty-white the Cracker Jack guy is on the logo.

Now it is reported the family of the woman who inspired the Aunt J brand and lable don't want it it go away. They like it. It and Uncle B's rice are top sellers so it's a testament to the manufacturers to just drop these brands.

Why has the Richard Russell Senate office building in Washington escaped scrutiny? Russell was a Democrat from Georgia and like all southern Democrats in the early to mid 20th century was as racist as they come. Good friend of Lyndon Johnson but bought hard to maintain segregation and to block the 1964 civil rights law.

Our governor here in RI signed an executive order today removing "...and Providence Plantations" from our official state name. I've never heard anyone use the entire name before but I guess it had to be done. Maybe someone will find some dirt on Roger Williams, the state's founder, who was fleeing England due to religious persecution (1636?), and we'll tear down all sorts of things...Roger Williams Park, Roger Williams Baptist Church, Roger Williams University...the list goes on. That'd be cool. It wouldn't change history but it's one way to get yer yaya's out.

BrerRabbit - 6/25/2020 at 04:21 PM

"My side"? You don't know me at all. Put this baby to bed, Malcolm - we got white folks here think they took the moral high ground over other white folks!

The white liberal is the worst enemy to America, and the worst enemy to the black man. Let me explain what I mean by the white liberal. In America there is no such thing as Democrat or Republican anymore. In America you have liberals and conservatives. The only people living in the past who think in terms of I’m a Democrat or Republican, is the American Negro. He’s the one that runs around bragging about party affiliation. He’s the one that sticks to the Democrat or sticks to the Republican. But white people are divided into two groups, liberals and conservative. The Democrats who are conservative, vote with the Republicans who are conservative. The Democrats who are liberal vote with the Republicans that are liberal. The white liberal aren’t white people who are for independence, who are moral and ethical in their thinking. They are just a faction of white people that are jockeying for power. The same as the white conservative is a faction of white people that are jockeying for power. They are fighting each other for power and prestige, and the one that is the football in the game is the Negro, 20 million black people. A political football, a political pawn, an economic football, and economic pawn. A social football, a social pawn. The liberal elements of whites are those who have perfected the art of selling themselves to the Negro as a friend of the Negro. Getting sympathy of the Negro, getting the allegiance of the Negro, and getting the mind of the Negro. Then the Negro sides with the white liberal, and the white liberal use the Negro against the white conservative. So that anything that the Negro does is never for his own good, never for his own advancement, never for his own progress, he’s only a pawn in the hands of the white liberal. The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros, and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked, or deceived by the white liberal then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems. Our problems will never be solved by the white man. The only way that our problem will be solved is when the black man wakes up, clean himself up, stand on his own feet and stop begging the white man, and take immediate steps to do for ourselves the things that we have been waiting on the white man to do for us. Once we do for self then we will be able to solve our own problems’ "The white conservatives aren't friends of the Negro either, but they at least don't try to hide it. They are like wolves; they show their teeth in a snarl that keeps the Negro always aware of where he stands with them. But the white liberals are foxes, who also show their teeth to the Negro but pretend that they are smiling. The white liberals are more dangerous than the conservatives; they lure the Negro, and as the Negro runs from the growling wolf, he flees into the open jaws of the "smiling" fox. One is the wolf, the other is a fox. No matter what, they’ll both eat you.

Not a Democrat, and have stated this many times here. Neutral on statue removal - I personally think a tree is more interesting.

History is not a tough pill for me at all - quite the opposite in fact. I read history all the time, from different angles, am a history buff. Not just "history", I am an avid reader of 18th and 19th century literature - I prefer to learn what was going on from people who were there.

There are lots of things I disapprove of that are not racists. And I believe a lot of the criticism of Obama was unfairly labeled as racist by the left. But there is a huge racist component in today's Republican party, and it seems like it is not something they are trying to hide anymore. It seems to be a badge of honor as the white hood of old that the racist Democrats hid away 70 years ago only to be pulled out for special occasions has been replaced by a red hat worn everyday.

I'm not the one reading into things. I'm sure Quaker Oats will not hide the new name. It will be widely known, and if you did indeed purchase and enjoy the product before, it will be easy to find out the new name. I think we all were well informed when Datsen changed their name to Nissan, and we didn't have to keep buying new cars to find one that might be the same car.

The thing is this, man cannot create what God has created. To try to do that is saying that man is equal to God. God creates, man imitates. God even says life and death are in his hands, yet Doctors use i.v.f. and other artificial means to try to make babies. The most successful programs only have a 20 % Success rate. If man was able to do that on his own the success rate would be close to 100%. It is not because it is only through his mercy that God allows any baby to be created using the Doctors hands and technologies as tools. Nike can put their own logo on the shoes they create because they are their design.

Do you know near the end God will uproot every tree, plant, flower that is not where HE put them? Landscaping with man deciding what goes where is an affront to him. He put what he wanted where he wanted it. He allowed man to build houses and structures but man takes it too far trying to emulate God's creations.

Certain food crops naturally grow in certain places and were meant for the people of those regions and as transportation developed fair and honorable trade deals with other nations should have happened. That is the right way. GMO and other manipulative practices are an abomination against what God put on this earth for man's sustenance.

The punishment? Famine from Food shortages, supply chain failures, starvation, death. Man created these problems.

If I wanted to hear crazy religious opinions, I'd go to church or listen to Mike Pence. Instead, I'll use my reasoning (either God given or naturally evolved, I don't really care) and form my own opinions. Your religious opinions mean about as much to us as some crazy conspiracy theory lunatic from YouTube.

Why? Was the name and picture the only reason you bought it before?

Or are you just offended that they decided to be less racist?

Those are the only two reasons I can think of why you would stop buying a product because of a name change.


Obviously you have "kneejerked" again.

Did you read the article?
Did you understand it?
Did you not notice that IT WILL NOT BE MADE ANYMORE?
Did you know that if it's not made anymore you can't buy it?
You must think that you can go into a Ford dealership and buy a brand new Model A.
Guess what! you can't! Know why? They don't make them anymore.
Just like Aunt Jemima isn't going to be made anymore.

PS: I don't use the flour, but I love the Butter Rich Syrup. Guess I won't be buying any of that from now on either.



I read the article, did you? Here is the very first sentence. "The Aunt Jemima brand of syrup and pancake mix will get a new name and image, Quaker Oats announced Wednesday,"

It will still be made and sold, just with a new name and packaging./quote]

Do you think they will put on the new label "formerly known as Aunt Jamima"?
How will you know if it's the same mix or syrup?
Do you expect me to blindly purchase items that MIGHT be the same mix and syrup?
where can I send you the bill while I'm experimenting if you expect me to do that?
AND again, you can't buy Aunt Jemima mix and syrup if it isn't labeled Aunt Jemima mix and syrup, so thus, you can't buy it anymore.
To simplify it, if they change the name, you can't buy the mix and syrup under that name. Got it?

Quit reading things into posts that aren't there.



I'm not the one reading into things. I'm sure Quaker Oats will not hide the new name. It will be widely known, and if you did indeed purchase and enjoy the product before, it will be easy to find out the new name. I think we all were well informed when Datsen changed their name to Nissan, and we didn't have to keep buying new cars to find one that might be the same car.


BUT, will it still be Aunt Jeremia?

Actually, I think Aunt Jeremia is one of the names they are considering - kind of a transgender rainbow friendly pansexual and all-inclusive idea.

Mike Pence? And by the way it is in the Bible that God will uproot every tree he has not planted, as well as famine, pestilence etc. Coming upon the earth. The waters that will be poisoned will be from the dust from the meteorites that will be coming. The astronomical and geopolitical events that happen will prove the prophecies. When you see them you may not recognize them because you want to dismiss them as theories. Prophecies are warnings not theories.

Well, to be all inclusive they would have to include a white hetro in there somewhere.

They are on it - working a straight white male into the design. Here is the general concept, take a bunch of photos of every possible type of person, then run em all thru a program that computes up a composite , and presto : Aunt Jeremia ! My guess is it will end up looking something like Hendrix.

Prophecies are guesses.


BrerRabbit - 6/30/2020 at 02:41 AM

^ It is easy to be a prophet nowadays, if you are wrong nothing happens, other than folks laughing at you. Back in ancient times, they took their prophets seriously - a couple bad calls and they were killed or exiled. I bet if they still faced this threat, modern prophets wouldn't be always saying the first thing come to mind.

If you are referring to Matthew 15:13 - that had nothing to do with trees.

Have you tried the new "Mountain Dew Zero"?
