And Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben's. Is there something wrong with good
food being represented by a black man and woman?
Are people really this ignorant that they don't realize the Aunt and
Uncle are gross caricatures of negative stereotypes?
I don't see it as negative.
Fine make them white and dress them in cooks outfits of a
hundred years ago. I won't think it any better or worse.
Sadly, lots of white people are really this ignorant.
I guess it depends on how people define "negative stereotype".
You don't think the mammy and Uncle Tom are negative stereotypes?
So someone is stretching Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben to other
No, that is not a stretch.
Gentle, kindly, caring people. That's what they mean to me. Any other
meaning you care to promote is just part of the Left's desire to stir
up racial animosity. What, else is the purpose of the Left's identity
politics if not to exploit and encourage racial division in a time
when we should be uniting as Americans. Be careful, the Left's work to
exploit race plays right into Trump's hands. He will use the same
tactics to unite White's, and others, against you identity mongers.
A Harvard Asian on the subject of identity politics ...
"Identity politics makes people feel better about themselves at the
expense of productive discourse. A persons lived experience should
never be invalidated. But no identity makes the beliefs that someone
derives from their lived experience automatically more correct. This
is not just a logical fallacy that should be avoided on principle. In
practice, it is actually a hindrance to persuading others. In a time
of such polarization, identity politics makes us close ranks with the
like-minded when we need to reach out."
"Protesters marking Juneteenth on Friday in Golden Gate Park toppled
and defaced several statues, including one of Union Gen. Ulysses S.
Grant, KPIX reports."
Others defaced and destroyed included Father Junipero Serra, Francis
Scott Key, and Miguel de Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote. By all
means keep moaning about Uncle Ben, tearing down statues, and
demanding that the police be defunded. You aren't winning many
friends, but you are energizing a lot of enemies.
