Aunt Jemima

So what’s wrong with this picture? Nothing. It’s just a woman wearing a bandana and smiling. I happen to like the picture because it reminds me of how things were during my childhood. It doesn’t make me think of black people as slaves. All things being equal, I’d buy the pancake mix in this box instead of the one with the “new and improved” Aunt Jemima.Beloved Aunt Jemima
