Aunt Jemima brand to change name, remove image that Quaker says is 'based on a racial stereotype'

“We recognize Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype," Quaker Oats said, adding that the move is an effort "toward progress on racial equality."

They've already changed the Aunt Jemima image. When I was a kid, she was definitely a stereotype, an overweight mammy with a do-rag on her head. They modernized her to look like an attractive black woman some years ago.

So is it the name that's deemed stereotypical? What are they gonna name it now? "Auntie J?"

Is/was Jemima a typical slave name? I had an ancestor named Jemima and she wasn't black.

From where did she hail?

My Jemima? England.

I'm sure Uncle Ben won't be far behind. This is madness.

I’d rather have Aunt Jemima’s pancake recipe than some skinny white vegan bitch.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
