Nancy Green Obituary : Was Nancy Green a Millionaire – Was Nancy Green Wealthy ?
For all you people getting bent out of shape , Aunt Jemima was not a real person . Here’s some information about the first person the company hired to portray her. They paid her for her services but think about how much money they made. She did not own the company. Maybe she should be replaced with a white Aunt Karen. Some people say what’s the big deal there are a lot more issues we need to tackle. Do you think racism just started with that officer putting his knee in George Floyd’s neck? It started in the 1600s when the Europeans brought people from Africa to America and enslaved them.
So Please read the biography of “aunt jemima.” She was the spokesperson and model for the pancakes and syrup. They chose her to perpetuate the stereotype of a mammy. This is in fact racist. They also swindled her out of a ton of money. She may have died a millionaire but they have made billions off of her image. This is racist! So really, she may have died a millionaire but she was robbed of more. She may have had more financial freedom than most people at that time but this is still based on slave mammy stereotype and is racist.
