Family of Woman Who Portrayed Aunt Jemima Isn’t Happy Brand is Being Renamed

No one bothered to ask them.

An East Texas family with a relative who portrayed Aunt Jemima isn’t happy that the brand has decided to rename the iconic maple syrup, arguing that the move is erasing their legacy of their deceased great-cousin, Lillian Richard.

Richard portrayed Aunt Jemima in a series of Quaker Oats company promotions, advertisements, and real life events in a career that lasted from the 1920’s to 50’s. She later became a goodwill ambassador for the town of Hawkins, Texas, which was designated the pancake capital of Texas in 1995 in her honor.

Vera Harris, a family historian for the Richard family of Hawkins, explained why the family opposes Quaker Oats’ decision to rename the maple syrup brand in a discussion with WBTV.

A lot of people want it removed. We want the world to know that our cousin Lillian was one of the Aunt Jemima’s and she made an honest living. We would ask that you reconsider just wiping all that away. There wasn’t a lot of jobs, especially for black women back in that time. She was discovered by Quaker Oats to be their brand person.

Harris argued that the reasoning behind the renaming ignored the history of the maple syrup brand.

She was considered a hero on Hawkins, and we are proud of that. We do not want that history erased. I wish we would take a breath, and not just get rid of everything. because good or bad, it is our history. Removing that wipes away a part of me. A part of each of us. We are proud of our cousin.”

Critics of the Aunt Jemima imagery claim the character invokes a stereotype stemming from slavery, apparently under the belief that the allusion to traditional American cuisine is racist.

Harris also expressed opposition to the renaming of U.S. military bases, citing the family’s members who have served in the armed forces.

BIDEN’S AMERICA: Psychotic Anti-White ‘Diversity’ Training Returns in San Diego School District

Anti-white indoctrination.

Published

The San Diego Unified School District is offering a “white privilege” training that claims all white people are racist and forces whites to engage in bizarre self-hate conditioning.

Christopher F. Rufo of City Journal exposed the materials that are being used in these trainings on social media:

Because of the journalistic work of Rufo, President Donald Trump officially banned the teaching of critical race theory by the federal government.

Big League Politics reported on the president’s achievement in stopping the left-wing agenda to systemically discriminate against white people funded by taxpayer dollars:

Weeks after banning the use of hateful critical race theory indoctrination sessions among federal agencies, President Donald Trump is expanding the CRT ban to companies that receive lucrative federal government contracts.

The President announced he is expanding the ban to cover private government contractors in a series of Tuesday tweets.

The ban on governmental contractors will doubtlessly instill panic in the CEO’s of powerful Fortune 500 companies, who love to tout their supposed virtue by staging race-based trainings on their often unwilling employees. Many of these companies are largely dependent on payments from the United States government, despite masquerading as a “free enterprise.”

The President’s executive order on the matter refutes the liberal identity-politics doctrine alleging that some people are inherently oppressive or evil on the basis of their race.

The ban’s coverage of contractors that do business with the United States military may be the most significant. Organizations such as Sandia National Laboratories, which is a longstanding federal nuclear research institutions, were busted staging hateful “trainings” in which white male employees were coerced into repeating progressive and BLM-style drivel.

However, Joe Biden intends to bring back critical race theory within the federal government if the color revolution coup to overthrow Trump is successful. Democrats are inflicting a hateful agenda to weaken America for their “Great Reset” world government plot.
