Let's see . . . how about TRAILER brand trash bags? For those really tough jobs like cleaning up a city overrun by liberal sewer rats? Available in 3 colors: Maga Red, Stars and Stripes, or Supreme (white).

Logo is a cute lil Elmer Fudd in a red hat saying
"Trailer trash bags - Make America Clean Again"


Hungry Jack Complete ... just sounds better than Simple Jack.

Almost lost my job at the ad arm of General Mlls for pitching Queerios for a cereal name. Q shaped cereal in rainbow colors. People need to chill out.

But I got points for suggesting that we rename Froot Loops to Bipolar Hoops.

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.

Maybe stop ignoring recent history. Such as politicians like Strom Thurman choosing racism over political ideology.

The Lincoln/Slavery/Republican/Democrat dodge is an obvious indicator of willful ignorance and grasping at straws to justify past white behavior, while clinging to notions of white superiority.

No, it's just a part of history that does not look good for your side and your rational is time elapsed.....

"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 Iím a Democrat or Republican, is the American Negro. Heís the one that runs around bragging about party affiliation. Heís 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 arenít 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, heís 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 wasnít 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 problemsí "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, theyíll both eat you.
Malcolm X

Perhaps not, But you are a Democrat...Correct? And since you are for the removal of Confederate statues, therein lies the nature of your dilemma and is exactly why History must be a tough pill for you to swallow.

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.

I don't have cable or The History Channel. Reading up on the French Revolution right now.

It's not a dilemma, no one is refuting political ideology of 200 years ago. The problem is you can't swallow the political ideological shift of 50 years ago.

Time to coin a new term to go with "Redhat" .

"Blueface" = liberal

Because you can repeat things to a Redhat until you are blue in the face and they will never get it.

I don't deny the historical racism in the Democratic party of 70 years ago. Maybe it's time you stop denying the racism of the Republican party of today.

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. Did you stop using Federal Express when they changed their name to FedEx? Did you stop going to Kentucky Fried Chicken when they changed their name to KFC? They are changing the name and packaging. That's it. So, now knowing that the product will still be available with a different name and packaging, are you going to stop buying the product because it changed its name?

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.

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.

Why do we honor the devil with Devil Dogs? Models were an improvement, then came Ho-Ho's and Ding Dongs [which is slang for penis]. Ho-hos and Ding Dongs. All devils food.

No you cannot put Allah's name on foods. Even the Jews do not do that for kosher, blessed Passover foods.

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.
