They got another one, good-bye Eskimo Pie. Wonder what this rage mob would do for a klondike bar? Better cancel Mounds and Almond Joy, one has nuts and one don't, Kaitlyn Jenner is offended.

Just think of all the poor Eskimos that are now unemployed

Wonder if Oreo is on the hit list since that's often used to describe a black that acts white

From what I read, the makers of Eskimo Pie made that decision without anyone having even complained, I guess just to try an one up other woke companies.

I think every single company in the USA with non-white character logos should immediately convert them to white ones.

Don't get rid of Aunt Jemimah, just make her a fat white cook.

Uncle Ben can be an old white man.

Eskimo Pie can be changed to Peary Pie.

I look forwards to the day when no person of color is ever defamed by depicted in an image on a commercial product.

It is the only way to not be racist.

I would say that we should just go 100% generic and put everything in plain white "Acme" boxes, but that would be racist too, because white boxes.

Why does Gerber use an image of a white baby? Can't Black babies eat baby food? Racists!



Why is the rich guy used as the Monopoly tycoon white? Can't Black people be rich? Racists!



And don't forget Col.Sanders, Orville Redenbacher, Chef Boy-Ar-Dee . . .

I'm wondering about Tony the Tiger. He has black stripes, but on an orange background . . . and since Orange Man Bad . . . !

I seem to recall a big dust up regarding Gerber a few years back. Can't remember what became of it.

Something about the baby being a famous porn star when she grew up or was that another company's baby logo?

No it was something about no black babies on the jars. I'm pretty sure it was pre-Trump.

Some decades ago, they had a problem with baby food exported to some parts of Africa. It seems that in many rural areas where the people weren't literate, canned and bottled goods always included a picture of the contents on the label.

So what would an illiterate rural villager - especially one who didn't even speak English - make of this old design bottle?

Cracker Barrel has to go.

Clouds are racist too.  WHITE puffy clouds float around in nice, pleasant weather, but when it is dangerous, scary, stormy weather, they are BLACK.

In a column published last Wednesday, [Ann Coulter] argued in favor of “a bill withholding all federal funds from Yale University until it changes its name” because “[t]he school’s namesake, Elihu Yale, was not only a slave owner, but a slave trader.”

Mary Poppins is now a racist movie - there was a dancing chimney sweep number in it where white actors (Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews) had black soot on their faces.

In NYC, they're removing a statue of Teddy Roosevelt from in front of a museum. Teddy was seated on horseback with an Indian walking along one side and a black man on the other. Racist!

One wonders how long it will be until the American Taliban decides it's time to blow up Mt. Rushmore, the same way the Afghan Taliban blew up some ancient Buddha carvings.

Anything else they wish to add before the election?
