    Speaking of brazil nuts...

    Sheniqua: "Girl, who you seein' now?
    Tanika: "I'm seeing me a Brazillian."
    Sheniqua: "You just 'ho like yo' mama. How many is a brazillian anyways?

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Although after a breif search of "racist products", this one did make a list somewhere, along with Uncle Ben's, Land o' Lakes Butter, Aunt Jemima Pancakes, and some other foreign products I've never heard of.
    Only racists would ever eat Cracker Jacks.

    Was it racist then? Or did maybe that come later? I see a friendly looking black woman trying to sell me her pancake mix. I imagine they sold a lot too and not just to black people.

    It's a grinning portrait of a "mammy". Yeah, it has implied racism.

    It's the same as those old cartoons and products featuring the black people with those massive lips, trying to do some soft-shoe. It most definitely has racist implications.

    It's not known for it now, but African-Americans that are slightly sensitive to antebellum metaphors may find something to gripe about.

    I looked up Aunt jemima advertising campaign.
    In 1890 a nancy green was hired as spokesperson. The character was so popular they changed their name to Aunt Jemima Mills Co. in 1914.
    In 1933 the character was brought back to life by Anna Robinson. She was described as a large, gregarious woman with the face of an angel.
    She traveled the country promoting Aunt Jemima until her death in 1951.

    @jamesrage the point of the Japanese one, besides the fact that it came out years before Chapelle did it, is they don't really understand the context the word is normally used, and they just think it is a slang term over there.

    @Captain America being a guy from South Carolina you get it a lot. Pretty damn racist state no matter how much I love it, just have to learn to love and respect everyone equally I suppose.
