So what they are trying to tell me is that an African American cannot be recognized for the product of their work?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben's_Original
"From 1946-2020, Uncle Ben's products carried the image of an elderly African-American man dressed in a bow tie, which is said to have been based on a Chicago maître d'hôtel named Frank Brown. According to Mars, Uncle Ben was an African-American rice grower known for the quality of his rice."

Wouldnt taking his picture off be racist?

Do you need anymore evidence than this low energy effort to realize the company doesn't give one duece about this, just pure virtue signalling?

The corporate rice moguls formerly known as Uncle Ben's is committed to... selling rice and beans. Who knew?

How very original. Clever. Epiphany thing.

I was hoping for Oryza Trayvon. I am disappoint.

I'll stick with Mahatma or Goya I suppose.

Now I want an Uncle Ben's and an Aunt Jemima tee shirt, Mrs Butterworth too. (or is that three?)

Guess someone doesn’t want prople to realize that going off the DNC plantation and making something of yourself is possible.

First Black female Oscar nominee - censored

Female black millionaire who made something of herself - removed

Black guy who was good at growing rice and made a name for himself - gone.

Hmmmmm
