Wow. The future looks dismal if these are future leaders. Hopefully not. My Hispanic students were a lot more fun to teach and didn't come from a culture of privilege.

Yeesh, what a vapid twunt.

It was a picture-perfect Fox News audition. She totally nailed the blondness, the boobness, the smug racism, the general arseholery, and the absolute, unimaginable stupidy.

You crushed it, girl.

/sigh.

There's a lesson in this.

What 'American Dream' is that?  The dream of holding black women in your hand?

GCU is such a joke.

"I'm a senior at High School University. I'm getting my science degree in 'Jesus Did It.'"

Wow. Where did she even get that story about Aunt Jemima?  It's a fictional character,an amalgam of the black "mammy" archetype from Vaudeville and Minstrel shows.
 
2020-06-24 5:39:50 AM  
"I always dreamed of having a black Mammy in my house, and now I can't even have that dream on a bottle of syrup" is still a weird dream to have, Snowflake. Seriously. It's like up there with white girls collecting Gollies. Becky needs some new hobbies.

I thought I recognized this funky little twat. She posted a racist as fark screed about BLM a week or two ago and then got fired. It got traction on the lowest lvl of the right-wing political newsosphere.

She's still young. Maybe she'll learn that Daddy wasn't speaking on behalf of the entire world when he told her that she was a Princess.

I doubt it though.

My FOX-News watching mom spouted off the exact same story as blonde girl did a few days ago.  No surprise there.

Her being named "Regan" was the first hint. May as well just call yourself "Hellmann's" for how suburban white it sounds.

It still works in this case.

Freakonomics had a really good article on how names that can be reliably assigned to "not black" do FAR better in job interviews.

And I know a bunch of Regans. Let's just say that with one notable exception, they are all like Ms. Entitled above. The plural of anecdote is not data, of course, but man that name has worse connotations for me than "Karen" and I had an ex-fiance named Karen who dumped me and got married to her side hustle a week later.

 I mean sure, Aunt J overcame and persevered to become the face of weekend breakfasts in America but really if your going to celebrate American exceptionalism you need to research people like Orville Redenbacher and Jack Astor among others. I think once you look at people like Tippsy McStagger and his long history of overcoming hardship to ultimately grab the brass ring that is the American dream you'll quickly realize this woman is full of shiat.

She should have asked Sky Wizard of Oz for a brain instead of the white shin she's so very proud of...

I can understand why Black people might find AJ offensive
But I can't understand what the deal is with White people losing their shiat over this

Unprivileged students are the best to teach. I think because they don't come in with their minds completely filled with shiat they have been trained to defend to the death.

Most of my students are white, but very much unprivileged, which seems to be the key.

Aunt Jemima syrup is not maple syrup. It's table syrup. Very different. No trees are involved.

Their argument - which I don't agree with - is that the original model for AJ was a woman named Nancy Green. She was a former slave hired by Quaker Oats to play the character and peddle the pancake mix at fairs and other gatherings, as well as in print advertising. Now, that's all true. Where the argument gets weird is in the suggestion that Green was living the American Dream and that rebranding somehow erases Green.

First, Green hasn't been the model used for AJ since the early 1900's. There have been multiple other versions since then, and none of them look anything like her. So the idea that Green is specifically being erased by this is a bit odd.

Second, it's not like Green's work catapulted her into the stratosphere of society or earn her significant wealth. She was buried in an unmarked grave when she died. She took the role when playing a minstrel show stereotype was one of the few non-service jobs available to an African American woman. Her family has long held that she was taken advantage of by the company.

The American dream that if you work hard enough you too will be paid for the rights to your likeness to be used by a private corporation in perpetuity without gaining an ownership stake/percentage of sales as a result?
