Great Syrup Debate Shows The Whininess Of The General Public
I picked up some syrup from the "Great Pearl Milling Company".
The "Great Pearl Milling Company" is the new name for Aunt Jemima Syrup (let's start by saying they should have found a better name like "Syruppy Mc Syrup", but that's beside the point). It's obvious from the font, the colors, and more that it's Aunt Jemima, so much so that I didn't even see the little blurb on the corner of the bottle that said, "New name, same great taste AuntJemima". I did not even need to be told that this was the same product.
I posted all of this on my Facebook page with the caption,
I bought this and there was absolutely no difference in the taste. Believe it or not it tastes the same without racial stereotypes.￼
I was a little surprised that even on my page, I got a little pushback on this. So let's get straight to it: How were you hurt by this product changing its name? Seriously, line it out for me right now. Before you even claim to have been hurt, did you buy this product before? Okay, if you did, you qualified to tell me how you got booty-hurt at the name change. Are you too dumb to identify the bottle now? Are you concerned that it won't taste right without a picture of a black woman with a plantation name on it?
Now, let's look at the other side of it, the side where you are a good person. I know 99.9% of you would open a door or say good morning to someone if you knew it would make them feel better. Well, those things require effort and this doesn't, and it will make some people feel better and like their voices are being heard.
If all you have to do to be a .000000000000000000001% better person is not complain about a syrup bottle and you still refuse to do so, then I don't want to know you anyways.
