Quaker Oats, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, has announced that they will be changing the logo and branding for Aunt Jemima after receiving criticism from the Black Lives Matter (BLM) mob that the imagery is racist.
They claim that “Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype,” and the image of the black woman will be removed from pancakes, syrup and other products by the end of the year.
The story behind Aunt Jemima is that of a black woman who made something of her life after being born into slavery. Storyteller Nancy Green became the face of the product, and traveled the country entertaining audiences while selling pancake mix. She became a hit across the country in the late 1800s and early 1900s, helping to break down racial barriers, and is credited with making pancakes a staple in kitchens nationwide.
“She was signed to a lifetime contract and traveled on promotional tours all over the country. Flour sales were up all year and pancakes were no longer considered exclusively for breakfast,” the AAREG noted in their article about Green.
Now, a great black woman’s legacy will be disregarded because the far-left mob needed something new to destroy. The corporation caved predictably, showing how thuggery dictates the cultural parameters in a diverse and multicultural culture.
“We are starting by removing the image and changing the name,” Kristin Kroepfl, vice president and chief marketing officer of Quaker Foods North America, said in a statement. “We will continue the conversation by gathering diverse perspectives from both our organization and the Black community to further evolve the brand and make it one everyone can be proud to have in their pantry.”
“We recognize Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype,” Kroepfl added. “As we work to make progress toward racial equality through several initiatives, we also must take a hard look at our portfolio of brands and ensure they reflect our values and meet our consumers’ expectations.”
In addition, the Aunt Jemima Brand will be paying a tribute of at least $5 million to BLM-style causes. They hope that subsidizing the racial huckster industry will get the mob off their backs for awhile. They claim that the donation will be used to “create meaningful, ongoing support and engagement in the black community.”
Earlier this year, Land O’Lakes announced that they would be changing their logo as well to bow to the regime of political correctness, removing a Native American woman from their packaging.
“We’ve acknowledged we want packaging that displays the inspiration and coronary heart of our firm tradition — and nothing does that higher than our farmer-owners whose milk is used to supply Land O’Lakes’ dairy merchandise,” said Beth Ford, President and CEO of Land O’Lakes, to announce her capitulation to the mob.
Corporate America is happy to surrender to the mob, showing allegiance to China rather than the country that made them rich and powerful. They are happy to subsidize the cultural overthrow of Western Civilization by a mob of left-wing savages.
Lexington, Kentucky Mayor Proposes Defunding Emergency Rental Assistance to Fund Critical Race Indoctrination
What a waste.
The mayor of Lexington, Kentucky has aroused community backlash after supporting a proposal to fund implicit bias training for city employees using funds previously appropriated for coronavirus emergency rental assistance.
Lexington’s woke mayor is taking funds for poor people and using them to pay a rich white woman so she can teach city employees how to become woke… this is progressivism in the 21st century https://t.co/DuPk8tiyfQ

A left-wing housing group wants Mayor Linda Gorton to fund racialist implicit bias training by defunding the city’s police department, as opposed to stripping a rental assistance program instituted to help Lexington residents in the midst of the coronavirus recession.
Gorton’s critical race indoctrination program has an estimated investment of $120,000. Funding for the program is expressly removed from a remaining $240,000 allocated earlier in the year for rental assistance.
Here is where @MayorGorton (referred to as "the administration") makes this proposal. Note: the funds were "unallocated" bc of bureaucratic slowness, not bc they are unneeded. The current amount dedicated to rental assistance will leave 2/3 of current applicants unfunded. pic.twitter.com/MaCjXt2iCl

Gorton is yet to respond to criticism over her plan to defund housing assistance for left-wing ideological training.
Other national progressives have fought to implement left-wing critical race theory trainings even as the American public reels from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. President Donald Trump signed two executive orders this year banning the use of divisive “trainings” by federal agencies or government contractors. Sources working with Joe Biden’s purported transition have indicated that the neoliberal Democrat will reverse the executive orders if he’s inaugurated, reinstalling critical race theory in government.
It’s hard to think of a more apt representation of luxury progressivism, defunding common-sense rental assistance for beleaguered people in order to enrich a woke ideologue for giving anti-white lectures.
