My wife and I have been married for fifty three years. I am a white man and she is not white woman. She is very disapointed at the political decision to end Aunt Jamima. Most "Blacks" have not had a problem wih name or the current image on the box. I grew up eating Aunt Jamima pancakes. Most of our white and black friends did not have problem with the label back then that showed a different Aunt Jamima.
If you notice, the people in streets demostrating were made up of a group of unhappy "Rich White Kids." There were very few blacks. The demostatrators were not complaining about the image on a pancake box. You like most corporate rich people claim you want racial harmony. This decsion to deny your customers "Aunt Jamima" pancake mix and I believe this will cost you financially. The American are smart and see what this is and it is not racial harmony.
There will still be young "Rich White Kids" demotrating after the change is made.
Thank You for this post!!! I have spent many a morning with Aunt Jamima in my kitchen with me. I feel sorry for what this has turned in to. Quaker needs to take a stand and keep her, because she matters, her history matters!! Her smile has cheered me up if the truth be told! And here am I, an Irish lass from Idaho, mid 50's. If Quaker really goes through with this, I vow to never again buy the products they sell, Pepsi Co. too.
Thank you William.
I rate my 2 stars as their weakness going down hill.
It's a shame that your will to placate these rabble is greater than your honor. I won't boycott you, I'll forget that you exist!
