Ice Cream Goes Woke After Far-Fetched Possibility of Racist Origins
The cancel culture has struck again. Recently we’ve seen them attacking everything from actors and actresses to cartoons and cartoon characters to books and now they’re taking things to a whole new level.
We have seen the effects of the woke crowd in everyday grocery items such as Land O Lakes butter and Aunt Jemima syrup, now a popular ice cream from New England is being pressured to change its name because of possible racist origins.
There is zero evidence that there’s anything racist about the term that they use for the ice cream but because somebody wants to be offended and wants to find something to be offended about this problem has arisen.
Brigham’s Ice Cream is a New England brand that started in 1914 and previously included an ice cream flavor with the name “Just Jimmies.” The company discreetly changed the name to “Just Sprinkles” at some point last year.
“Jimmies” is the New England/Boston-area word for chocolate sprinkles, although the term can also refer to all types of sprinkles. Some have claimed that the term “jimmies” has ties to the Jim Crow-era, specifically because the sprinkles are brown in color or because the name might be referring to Jim Crow, the main character of the 1830s minstrel song that became synonymous with racist culture.
Let me ask you this…have you ever heard this term used in such a way? This is a MASSIVE stretch and it just goes to demonstrate just how far the liberals are willing to go to be offended for their virtue signaling.
Are they really offended over a brown-colored sprinkle? My goodness, what have we become that we as a nation are so soft that sprinkles offend us? This is gotten way out of hand.
But let these companies continue to go woke and run themselves into the ground, just like the NBA is doing.
