How did George Floyd kill Aunt Jemima after he was already dead?
Aunt Jemima served delicious pancakes
RIP Quaker Oats Aunt Jemima
Here comes Uncle Ben
with a pot of fluffy rice
soon to be snuffed out
another white on black

Maybe we are over reacting but at the base of it all is that we want to bring understanding and justice. I’m so barely ‘awake’ that I don’t know if this is offensive to black people or not. I guess, I’ll err on the side of “I’m so sorry” Walking on egg shells over here.
For 150 years Americans have lived with Black not really equaling White and not noticing it, which is why the sudden desire to beg forgiveness strikes me as strange to say the least. Some might say, about bloody time too.
What an interesting take on the poem. Sad to see Aunt Jamama go. I enjoyed her pancakes and syrup all my life! Never though of it a s being racist!
A tongue-in-cheek, thought-provoking write! Cry over racism, laugh over ridiculous.
A timely use of tongue-in-cheek imagery. Intriguing!
