Irene Cruz right if someone had forced their ancestors into slavery worked them like animals, forced to cook their meals etc. and put their faces on boxes depicting that awful time in history, bet it wouldn’t be so comforting. none of you are stopping to think that it isn’t about YOU. It’s not about what you as a white person thinks or the connotations or associations you have with this product. If it doesn’t bother YOU, YOU don’t see what the problem is. You haven’t had to live with this stuff your entire life, everywhere you look. It’s subtle, but insidious.
I’d say the marketing campaigns worked quite well if these very images conjure up such deep feelings of comfort and stability, which is exactly what they were designed to do. Does anybody who comment here realise its really vapid to say race never entered your mind. I mean why would it? Its was not your people on the box being exploited to make a sale. I have never bought either due those symbolisms. Thats what you should pay attention to. Why not something neutral? Instead of a logo of some cultural stereotyping house ….servants? Just saying. Those symbols, however, do portray black people in the roles of servitude, cooks, butlers. You may not have seen them as racist, but they defintely defined the supposed roles of black people… that is exactly the issue. It didn’t for me either. But I’m white. I’m not offended by the stereotype. But if a company has Lear from their past and is willing to change, I’m all for supporting education and growth. I just read an article from Aunt Jamimas Great Grandaon Which really touches me. As he basically was saying her whole legacy is going to be wiped away. So true and so sad and why????? Cause the colour of her skin.
