Say good bye to Aunt Jemima pancakes! Can Uncle Bens rice be far behind?

Can you think of anything else that should be removed from our grocers shelves due to political correctness?

What, they're taking away my Electric Aunt Jemima?! The Zappaheads (like me) will be very depressed.

Well, I noticed that they changed the packaging a few years ago, gave her a new 'do and pearl earrings so that she looks like "Ms. Jemima" upscale professional buppie.

White rice.

It's obviously a racist ploy.

Make your own pancake mix: it turns out better than the packaged stuff. I have just learned how to make batter for Kaiserschmarren: eggs, sugar, milk, melted butter, flour, vanilla extract. Beat the mixture up, and fry in butter. Mmmm! Especially with the fruit sauce and confectioner's sugar topping that is added for Kaiserschmarren.

I always make it homemade. Easy as with the mix, and MUCH better. The mixes are TOO SALTY for me. I add extra sugar, and a dash of vanilla! YUM

White rice

... has the nutritive value of spit. Brown rice tastes better and is better for you.

This is almost as good as Tina Fey castigating Jimmy Fallon on the latest Saturday Night
Live for his mentioning that BLACK bears had killed their zoo handlers.

It was a good sign when Fallon fought back and produced his wedding photo to...
A BLACK BEAR.

Jemima is a biblical name derived from the Hebrew word for "dove." Not bad. Coulda been something like buzzard or hyena.

PC crap, I ...oh, nevermind.

Same company - what I found funny was seeing Quaker Grits and Aunt Jemima Grits (blue & red boxes, otherwise identical packaging) right next to each other in the grocery stores when I moved down here.

Black bean soup, Little Caesers pizza, Redman chew, french, italian, russian dressing, polish sausage, white bread, canadian bacon, mexican jumping beans....the list goes on. A lot of our foods are tied directly to their ethnic origins. I guess we'll eventually be reduced to the basic soylent food groups!

The story you linked to does not say anything about removing Aunt Jemima products, or ending the brand.

Seperating chicken and turkey cuts into "white meat" and "dark meat" is another fine example of McGovernistic segregation that simply cannot stand. But the one - the ONE product that stands as the most offensive, the most bigoted, the most inflammatory of all is this one...

I went out to a nice restaurant a few months back and the waitress ( a black woman, very nice) asked me how I wanted my coffee ( I drink my java black); I hesitated before I wanted to say “black” or “dark” so I just said I’d take it with cream. /walking on eggshells in this PC world

Yet that conniving Lucky Charms leprechaun step-dances on, mocking my Irish heritage.

Where did I put that lawyer? I know he's around here somewhere.
