I was coming here to defend Aunt Jemima, as she has made me some delicious pancakes in the past. However, I then saw this

I mean racist? Well yeah, but I still love pancakes

So we aren't to buy products with black people on the label? I'm confused....

Don't try to analyze the rationale behind their movements. They just emotionally riff as they go.

You have the image of a much earlier Aunt J.

Except in my family, I thought that Cindy was on the label, because that big smiling face was so close to the Cindy that I knew as a child, it had to be her.

The current Aunt J is a PC version. Obviously, not PC enough.

No. They are upset because Aunt Jemima is depicted as a mammy. Mammies were considered to be subservient.

I think you meant "trytard". SJWs tryhard for symbolism, not substance, but such is the struggle for marxism.

Maybe we should outlaw the farming of cotton, sugar cane, etc since there's a history of slave use in those industries.
