In observation of Black History Month:

Top 10 African-blooded figures who had a significant meaning in history (I know this isn't a humorous ten)

10. Jackie Robinson

9. George Washington Carver (he worked for peanuts!) :laughing:

8. Harriet Tubman, a rare self-engineered escapee from slavery, later dubbed "Moses" after spearheading the Underground Railroad that facilitated hundreds of other slaves in crossing the Ohio River to freedom. Nearly all her life facing certain hanging if caught, she later served the Union Army as a cook, laundress, nurse, scout, and spy behind Confederate lines.

For a list that wasn't intended to be humorous, that's plain insulting. More honorable choices to top this list would have been: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Thurgood Marshall, etc.

Insulting?

I'm sorry my post went over your head. Nancy Green, to me, is just as much a part of African-American history as the ones you just mentioned.

Holy flying spahgetti monster if I'm not getting tired of trying to explain myself to people . . .

Aunt Jemima has a rich history spanning over 115 years. Read on to learn more about important milestones in the fascinating history of the Aunt Jemima brand.

1889

Chris Rutt and Charles Underwood of the Pearl Milling Company developed Aunt Jemima, the first ready mix.

1890

R.T. Davis purchased the struggling Aunt Jemima Manufacturing Company. He then brought the Aunt Jemima character to life when he hired Nancy Green as his spokeswoman.

1914

The image of Aunt Jemima was so popular that the company was renamed the Aunt Jemima Mills Company.

1926

The Quaker Oats Company purchased the Aunt Jemima Mills Company.

1933

For the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933, the advertising planners decided to bring the Aunt Jemima character back to life. They hired Anna Robinson, described as a large, gregarious woman with the face of an angel. She traveled the country promoting Aunt Jemima until her death in 1951.

1937

Quaker’s first registration of the Aunt Jemima trademark occurred in April, 1937.

1955

From the mid 1950’s until the late 1960’s Aylene Lewis was hired to portray Aunt Jemima at the Aunt Jemima restaurant in the newly opened Disneyland.

1957

Quaker introduced Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix. Also at this time, Quaker began to advertise on television, showing kids and moms making not just pancakes but, “Aunt Jemimasâ€.

1966

Quaker introduced syrup under the Aunt Jemima trademark and used the campaign, “Aunt Jemima, what took you so long?â€.

1968

Quaker introduced the Aunt Jemima frozen waffle and advertised it with a “toaster jingleâ€. In the same year Quaker also began the seven years running campaign using the song, “Aunt Jemima Syrup, Pancakes or Waffles without her…â€.

1970

Quaker introduced two new items geared towards convenience: Aunt Jemima Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix (“Just Add Waterâ€) and Aunt Jemima Frozen French Toast.

1979

Quaker introduced Aunt Jemima Lite Syrup and featured a “Lite Contest†message on television, which ran for the next three years.

1981

Quaker began a campaign for frozen products, “Just Like Mommy Makes.†The campaign ran for four years.

1985

Quaker introduced Aunt Jemima Butter Lite syrup.

1986

Another campaign, “Nothing Could be Finer†promoted all of the Aunt Jemima products.

1989

In 1989, the image of Aunt Jemima was updated by removing her headband and giving her pearl earrings and a lace collar.

1991

Quaker introduced Aunt Jemima Butter Rich syrup.

1992

During a frozen package redesign Quaker tilted Aunt Jemima’s head into a more upright position.

1996

Aunt Jemima frozen products were licensed out to Pinnacle Foods Corporation.

TODAY

The Aunt Jemima products continue to stand for warmth, nourishment and trust – qualities you’ll find in loving moms from diverse backgrounds who care for and want the very best for their families.

I did not in any way mean to demean Nancy Green, a former slave who would become a corporate icon and remains so even 86 years after her death. However, the notion of a corporate symbol as the #1 most influential individual of African descent did not and still does not sit with me. ... But let's get back to the more humorous TT's. I think we all could use a good laugh. :jester:

I'm surprised that they didn't make the list, but I guess it's good to open up to other prospects.

Top ten reasons why there isn't a white history month . . .

10. White men can't jump

9. They couldn't decide which of the 13 months it would be

8. We have enough holidays commemorating white people (Columbus Day, Presidents Day, various Saint days around the world)

Or Frederick Douglass, the most noble lobbyist to ever petition the U.S. Government. In the face of incredibley strong racism, his relentless call for the abolishment of slavery flew in the face of even northern thinking, which was "Don't rock the boat; you could start a war."
