Quaker Oats Announces That Aunt Jemima is Cancelled to Appease the Black Lives Matter Mob

First, they came for Jemima…

Published

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.

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Published

on

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
