Aunt Jemima Brand And Logo Will Be Removed By Quaker For Racist Stereotype

It looks like the Aunt Jemima brand will be removed from the Quaker Oats pancake boxes and syrup, as first reported by NBC News.

Aunt Jemima brand and logo is more than 130-year-old and based on a real woman Nancy Green, who was born into slavery. On the company’s website it stated that Green was a “storyteller, cook and missionary worker.”

“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,” the company told NBC.

Even though Aunt Jemima’s appearance has changed multiple times since Green, the brands logo was originally based on racist depiction of slavery.

There have been lots of opinions on what the removal means culturally. I’ve put some of those tweets here below and wonder what readers are thinking about the changes happening in our nation.
