(Regarding Aunt Jemima being rebranded as the Pearl Milling Co.)
Many applaud this move and see it as a step towards the elimination of racist iconography and the normalization of offensive tropes. Others, however, see it as no more than yet another tokenistic (for “show”) appeal to BIPOC consumers that does little to confront actual issues facing the Black Community such as poverty, unemployment, lack of opportunity and police brutality.

He's representing almost every image of an Indian with tomahawk and a scalping knife in hand, as though they have little more but a barbaric spirit. Christian nations should still be portrayed with just fairness by cannon and ball, blades and handguns.
Euro-Americans perpetrated countless acts of brutality against indigenous communities in the U.S. history. Such actions include extermination or genocide, robbery of Indian lands and properties, prisoners and enslavement, compulsory displacement from their countries of origin, and education for the destruction of indigenous peoples.
Today, violence persists. A research by the United States Department of Justice suggests that, American Indians and Alaskan indigenous women and men experience abuse at an alarmingly high pace.
Data scientist Melanie Peterson-Hickey points out in a blog post from the American Psychiatric Association that high suicide rates among Native Americans are well known, adding that "the depression stemming from a legacy of race policy, segregation and injustice has a longstanding and substantial impact."
Nevertheless, as Chief Elias Johnson of Tuscarora points out, American Indians are portrayed as barbarous, scalping with tomahawk and knife. On the other hand, Euro-Americans, particularly Indian men, are described as innocent victims of savagery.
It was thought that European images of indigenous people were as barbaric as 1591 when the graver Theodor DeBry graved and reported a painting of Indian scalping by artist Jacques LeMoyne from 1564 to 1565. In addition, from the 17th century to the 19th, Non-Indian observers depicted Indians with a "wild fight" motive more brutal than the "civilized" fight of the governments of Europe and the Americas. Captivity narratives written from the 1800s until the 1800s showed increasingly lurid descriptions of Indian savagery, stories of non-Indians abducted and detained by Indiana. Dime novels, cheap brochures first published in 1859, also became famous. This fictional bestseller described Indians as savages vulnerable to defenseless Euro-Americans.
Wild West were performing from the late 1800s through the 20th century throughout North America and Europe and dramatic Indian assaults on stage coaches and cabins and ridiculous fights between Indians and cavalry. Cody and other showmen, like Plain Indians, attracted large crowds. William "Buffalo Bill" These series, and associated forces, influenced filmmakers to have Westerners represent armies of Indians who assault Euro-Americans. Many Americans have been arrested, tortured, imprisoned, killed and expelled into slavery by non-Indians. Since Europeans and Euro-American immigrants were invading indigenous populations, many fought powerfully to protect their homelands and communities.
The continuous view of aboriginal people as harmful leads to detrimental perceptions, experiences and implications. Indians therefore have large rates of imprisonment, bigotry and hate crimes, and other detrimental consequences. Stereotyped abuse by Indians often causes non-Indians to mistrust indigenous citizens.
The "barbaric essence" of the Indians, articulated by Elias Johnson, still pervades American culture through curricula, novels, toys, sports teams, television commercials and other ways. These representations discourage viewers from realistically experiencing native people, even in a number of professions, environments and occupations.
