Are you still going to buy Aunt Polly ( former Aunt Jemima ) pancake mix after the name change ?

Why are they cancelling black people from product

    The problem here is that it is a highly processed product and - on a scale of 1 to 10 - with 10 being a master chef and 1 knowing the difference between eggs and potatoes...any person with a skill level of 2.5 or above can make pancakes from scratch with the ingredients in the kitchen...and that costs less and is healthier than the mix.    They same goes for that liquid … poison....the overly processed (GMO) corn syrup that they load with chemicals and want you to put on your pancakes.

    I seriously doubt that the woman who used to be depicted on the box would stoop to actually serving the products to any one she actually liked.

    So, no I am not going to buy it just because they changed the box.

    I seriously try to avoid poisoning myself with the chemicals corporations try to pass off as food.

    But it is good to have to the shelf if you have nothing else to eat and you do not care about the chemicals.

    It wasn't renamed Aunt Polly

    It actually returned to its original  name  Pearl  Milling Company

    They changed the name because 'some' people found it offensive.

    The product would'nt have changed, so I'd still buy it.

    So now we have erased a prominent, positive black image from kitchens around the world.

    What is more dangerous to a society: a woman’s face or the thinking that her face is offensive and must be removed?

    The fact is, even in the older images, historical people actually looked like that!  Aunt Jemima could’ve been anyone’s actual mother or aunt.  And especially the modern version!

    These “woke liberals” need to go back to sleep.  And take their nightmares with them.

    I think making a big deal of it is silly. 

    Never purchased it. Pancakes are pretty easy to make.Recipes for "master mixes" abound, if one wanted to mix them up oneself. When I wanted a mix for camping or such I used Bisquick.

    I think this cancel culture has gone overboard.  Did they ask the black people if they were offended by the stereotype of a Good Imaginary Cook with a Great Recipe?

    Yes.  Isn't it wonderful how perfect and righteous you are.  If only we could all be like you.  They got rid of the Aunt Jemima depiction because it was an obvious insult to blacks.  It should have been eliminated 50 years ago.

    I never bought it before and I sure am not buying it now. Corporate "wokeness" makes me sick.
