  1. why do this now? why now, in 2020? Who’s next? Ronald McDonald? because his face is painted white?

  2. What about Colonel Sanders? He looks as though he might be some sort of racial stereotype.

  3. That original logo would stop you dead cold in the supermarket aisle, though!

  4. Next the Pillsberry doughboy, He offends me every time I see him

    Talk about answering questions nobody asked.

  7. Uncle Ben is gonna be pissed.

  8. Yup, corporate America solving the REAL problems in society. 😂🤦‍♂️🙄

  9. Why is everyone acting like some sjw crusade did this. A corporation retired a mascot.

    • Virtue signaling
      What about a clutch master cylinder
      And slave cylinder
      That’s racist AF. Yet you don’t see auto manufacturers changing parts names

    • Lololol! They retired it or they caved to extortion from the sjws? Good grief.

    • @kelperdude that does seem to be the mindset set of this comment section.

    • @Alen Bacco
      If they had honestly thought it was offensive or racist they would have changed it years ago….

    I remember as a kid in the 80’s when they removed her kerchief and gave her a hairstyle. I guess Uncle Ben and “Rastus” the Cream of Wheat guy will be next.

      @DuWarren Dukes I don’t think you should feel stupid. Iam 73 and for me I grew up looking at the faces of the black image on the packages and all I thought was “this really must be some good food”, I am not black and I am not white and the smiling faces of the images I was looking at made me happy and they were the only brands we bought. What is wrong with having black images on products? If there were none, black people would be complaining that there are no images of black people.

    • Exactly! I never once looked at her race in a negative way. I thought she was a real person that invented the syrup. She was pretty and smiling, which made me smile. It’s the only one we ever had growing up and I was one of seven children! Racism never entered our minds. We also only had Uncle Ben’s rice, I thought he was a real person too! We were never taught anything racist about these iconic figures.

    • K M maybe consider the fact that when most black people in America look into their family history, as most people in general are curious about it, they will inevitably learn about the disgusting ways their ancestors were treated. The ‘mammie’ stereotype is directly taken from a minstrel show character called aunt Jemima. Look at the older packaging. It was looking like a minstrel show poster until the 80s. That is just insanity to imagine that black people living in a time even closer to the time of slavery had to look at WORSE portrayals of themselves than what you grew up with. But the name is the same and for anyone who knows the history, I can completely understand why it was compared to the n word in this video. It is a jarring thing to hear and see when you can’t be sure of the intentions behind it. And when you KNOW the intentions aren’t good, aka the creator of the brand literally got his idea FROM a minstrel show, it’s pretty easy to want to distance yourself or speak out against it.

    I dont think Floyd would have died if they would’ve changed that label a long time ago.

      I get it. Pulling these products off the shelfs will have a massive effect on White Supremacist groups.

      Why didnt us white people against racism think of this along time ago? Huh?

    • Funny and while you’re cracking jokes about racism your fellow latino’s are still sitting in cages at the border thanks to the same type of people that thought putting stereotypes on boxes was funny. Racism isn’t a f*cking joke homie.

      @Murada illegal immigration isn’t a joke either. Come here legally and you don’t end up detained.

    • I bet Floyd is rolling over in his grave 😂

    You know how many rap songs have the N-Word in them among other racial references and vocabularies? Aren’t they going to be taken out too while y’all are at it?

  19. I associate Aunt Jemima with a good breakfast. You ruined it. You ruined it and I’m leaving.

  20. Get rid of the Old Spice black guy.
