Nancy Green’s story is one that could only have been written in America. A true rags to riches story and an inspiration to anyone facing great adversity. Her story is about to be lost because of the movement by BLM, et al to erase history.
Nancy was born into slavery in 1834, in Montgomery County, Kentucky. She was a domestic servant, but after the civil war, Green was freed. She moved to Chicago where she again worked as a housekeeper and cook for a wealthy family by the name of Walker.
To earn a little extra money, Green saw an ad looking for people to model products and she thought she might give a try. As luck would have it, she was just what two young entrepreneurs were looking for and they hired her! She became the first African-American model for a new milling company.
She was the face and Aunt Jemima was her name. The concept for the character had already been scripted by Charles Rutt and Chris Underwood, the founders of the Pearl Milling Company. They created America’s first ready-mixed pancake flour and their registered trade mark was Aunt Jemima.
They renamed the company the Aunt Jemima Manufacturing Company. In 1893 they sold the Aunt Jemima Manufacturing Company to the R.T. Davis Milling Company. Green stayed on and made her first live public appearance that same year at the Columbian Exposition (aka Chicago World’s Fair).
Green was a hit at the worlds fair (as was her pancakes) and her fame continued to grow. Throughout her life she would support many civil rights causes, including women’s suffrage. She lived until 1923, but her success story and legacy didn’t end there. They continued on to inspire and amaze millions who only knew her as Aunt Jemima. The lady on the box of pancakes.
Unfortunately, this is a new day and groups like Black Lives Matter and their liberal supporters demand that the name “Aunt Jemima” be withdrawn from the pancake flour, because they say its racist! I don’t think Nancy Green would approve of this erasing of history. This was a name made her a fortune and she used her fame and money to contribute so much to impowering black people in America. Her legacy is soon to be lost on future generations because of the new American Taliban’s that wish to defile history.
Also to be censored out of existence is the Indian maid on Land O Lakes butter and Uncle Ben’s rice. All Civil War statues are disappearing and several paintings that hang in the Senate will be taken down, because they belonged to famous Confederates. But, history deserves to be remembered, both the good and bad. This is how we learn. Our American history serves a noble purpose, even if those who are remembered weren’t, like Aaron Burr or Benedict Arnold. Nancy Green’s story ought to be remembered.
From the famous passage in George Orwell‘s novel 1984: “He who controls the past, controls the future; and he who controls the present, controls the past.”.
The PC police have done more to hurt the country than all of law enforcement errors.
Another attempt dems of rewriting history. Can’t have successful blacks who made it on their own instead of being dependent on democrats to exist. Pelosi removing all of the confederate House Speaker’s portraits won’t erase the fact they were all democrats.
I loved this video the first time I saw it. It now depicts just how bad the fake news media has become. We can’t trust anything they do any more.
Toddler runs from racist.
Except the “fake news” actually portrayed that video accurately as part of a heartwarming story. Then it was doctored and retweeted by the president.
Really doesn’t make the point you think it does.
So, where does this end? It ends where these animals are stopped. By force.
Another disgraceful attempt to rewrite our history. She should be praised for her accomplishments and honored as an example of success.
Here’s another disgusting example of the media and the educational system hiding our historical truth. What will be made known 50-75 years from now when the truth is once again told?
Tulsa Race Massacre:
For decades, there were no public ceremonies, memorials for the dead or any efforts to commemorate the events of May 31-June 1, 1921. Instead, there was a deliberate effort to cover them up.
The Tulsa Tribune removed the front-page story of May 31 that sparked the chaos from its bound volumes, and scholars later discovered that police and state militia archives about the riot were missing as well. As a result, until recently the Tulsa Race Massacre was rarely mentioned in history books, taught in schools or even talked about.
Scholars began to delve deeper into the story of the riot in the 1970s, after its 50th anniversary had passed. In 1996, on the riot’s 75th anniversary, a service was held at the Mount Zion Baptist Church, which rioters had burned to the ground, and a memorial was placed in front of Greenwood Cultural Center.”
Jack, you out there? If so did you see this? If so, what did you think? Mark my words, in a few years you will not even recognize this country.

Jack, you out there?
YOU SEE THIS?
For those following the Flynn case. Good read.
Powell Files Stunning Motion Against Gleeson: It’s A ‘wrap-up smear’ against Flynn.:
Edit: Never comment in a hurry. The general’s statue in question is Ulysses S. Grant, of course. Chris burned me on this senior moment comment. Good for him. But it doesn’t change the fact that these kids are ignorant regarding our history and it’s significance! Nor does it change the fact that destruction of public property is not a right granted to anyone. How dare they take the right of the people to decide into their own destructive hands!
Jack these young people are so ignorant they even tore down a statue of General Robert E Lee, the guy who defeated the south and made freeing slaves possible!!!
Worse than all of this idiocy are the officials in charge who are older, should know better, and continue to appease and pander to the rabble.
It’s ridiculous that we allow the very few to hold such sway over the rest of us. They don’t respect our nations political or legal systems. The Constitution doesn’t exist for them so blatantly do they flout it without regard to what others think or want! Idiots they live in the best country of all in terms of freedom and justice. As the Black Avenger said, “Pick a Better Country”
This was a misstatement by pure accident, it was the Grant statue they were tearing down and it was on the news, didn’t you hear about this Chris, I’m surprised you didn’t connect it to what Tina meant? You are generally so meticulous about finding every conceivable detail to berate Tina, why the selective ignorance now?
We’ve all made slips like this Chris, don’t be so mean.
If Chris is a “moderate centrist” then Stalin was an agrarian capitalist.
Hmmm, evidently Chris has no problem with the destruction of public or private property as long as it meets with his approval. Why am I not surprised?
