Aunt Jemima Was a Symbol of Equal Rights & Ending Poverty

Aunt Jemima was a strong symbol and advocate for many things good: equal rights, ending poverty, wholesomeness, and good taste.

Thanks to an indoctrinated generation of cultural liberals, she is now a symbol of censorship, hypocrisy, prejudice and media bias.

  1. Young and ignorant grown children. They might be college educated, but lack common knowledge of anything. I would bet they don’t know her story or about her success; that would be too much to research. Aunt Jemima was a cultural icon, and this group of morons took everything she stood for away. Good reporting.

  2. Perhaps it’s time to change the terms of reference for those who are propagating our current social destruction. Rather than Social Liberals, perhaps it’s more apt to refer to this group as Cultural Leftists. Rather than Politically Correct Liberals, Political Illiterates. Better yet, why not refer to these groups by something even they can grasp: The American Taliban. Intolerant, destructive, hate filled and mostly ignorant, they are anything but liberal or correct.

  3. Yes – she was ERASED by IGNORANT but ‘politically correct’ cultural liberals. I don’t understand how that’s something to be proud of.

  4. It is a huge shame that you caved into these politically correct liberals. No one has any guts any more.
    It is the same old story, ” it is all about the money”. Was shopping in jewell the other day, and could not
    find AUNT JAMIMA syrup, SICK COUNTRY.

  5. While this Aunt Jemima story is very sweet, it is not entirely true. There was no “lifetime contract” from the company and, when Nancy refused to go to Europe in 1900 to promote the product, the company replaced her with Agnes Moody. Agnes was then presented as the “real” Aunt Jemima. The woman you have pictured here in your article is neither Nancy nor Agnes. Nancy lived another 23 years after she lost her job with Quaker so, no, she wasn’t employed with them the rest of her life. She returned to housekeeping to support herself and lived with a nephew and his family. She died, not at all famous, when two vehicles collided in the street and one hurtled onto the sidewalk and crushed her. Many years later, when approached to help with expenses to provide a monument for Nancy’s grave, Quaker said Aunt Jemima and Nancy were separate entities and they felt no obligation to help.
