I buy Uncle Ben's rice. The kind I buy isn't boil-in-bag. As far as I know, it's just plain old brown rice. I measure it out, add water and boil it.

Either discipline is becoming lax, or discipline is unevenly administered.


Or, perhaps intention is taken into account. There is between posting an image with the intent of mocking black people, and posting the same image with the intent of showing how black people have been treated by others.


Yes, thank you

The Uncle Ben's brand was built on converted rice -- that being unpolished rice that has been steamed to remove the brown color and pre-gelatinize the starch so it cooks faster, and is completely non-sticky.

But it appears that they sell regular, non-converted, brown, and polished rices as well. I just can't fathom buying it.

On the other hand I'm more partial to the aromatic rices from india and thailand, and short grain varieties such as calrose.

Well, okay then. If spankings are administered based upon the alleged offender's surmised intentions.

The second one does contain a word which is a no-no on the site, though.

That is in fact about the top and tail of it - especially in PPR.
It's permissible to discuss racism in advertising therefore images as examples are inevitable at some point.

Now please stop derailing the thread - with this and other trollish chattering. It's becoming a nuisance.

I think mine sounds better, and I don't think I can say 'PedoBear' directly to him for his mission to post as much soft-core porn all over the Adult Forum like in the GIF Thread.

Man, I don't even know why I should try to have serious, relevant, or meaningful discussion anymore on WP...

And I can't believe we're up to 7 pages already just talking about Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben, something most normal people would live their entire lives without even considering........ :roll:

I don't see anything wrong with analyzing the evolution of advertising. You can tell a lot about a society by its advertising. It can be something of a window into the psyche of the presented era

It's being made into a race thing when it would never occur to most normal people that those labels are meant to imply racism......

That had not been my intent but if you're the type to get wrapped around the axle over something as inert as a product label then go ahead and be insulted.
