Quaker Oats Company Is making Changing The Aunt Jemima Pancake And Syrup Brand

Written by on June 18, 2020

Everybody knows Quaker Oats & the Aunt Jemima pancakes brand. The company announced Wednesday that they’re changing the name and image of the brand.

For the last 130 years the brand featured a Black woman named Aunt Jemima who is dressed like a minstrel show character.
The company said “they recognized that the origins are based on racial stereotype.”
I find it funny now all of a sudden these corporations now understand there’s a problem that’s been going in America for a long time when it comes to racism.
