    So now Trader Joes is racist

    So sick of this shit.
    Apparently they have a petition going to remove the ethic naming of their ethnic food products such as
    Trader Jose (mex)
    Trader Ming (chinese) and so on and so forth
    I mean u fukkin kidding me?
    Im a minority too, if they put a Middle-Eastern first name with a product say, hummus, I think its funny/cool and totally non-offensive.
    You cant breathe without someone being offended, beyond point of ridiculousness now and getting worse by the day.
    People have really too much time on their hands.

    Jose is a common Mexican name. Ming is a common Chinese name. People just want to control others and dictate what they do with their lives.

    Thug Kitchen was apparently racist bc they’re two white people that chose the name “Thug Kitchen” for their recipe books... stood their ground until a few weeks ago, now they’re called Bad Manners

    I read that a couple black guys beat up some employees of a Trader Joe's in New York because they didn't want to wear a mask.

    Trader Joe's said that they are not going to bow down to the mob and they are keeping the ethnic names on the packaging.

    I looked into this a bit.

    They consider the use of "thug" to be cultural appropriation.

    That couldn't be further from the truth. Thug originates in like 14th century India.

    How is one skin color seriously going to claim "thug" and why would they want to?

    Can't make this shit up.

    Yep, it was 100% bullshit and misguided. The pc crowd said the word “thug” has evolved in meaning and its usuage now is to pain african americans in a negative light, therefore two white people should not be using the word “thug” and mentizing off off it. Many BLM’ers are calling for them to give up every cent they ever made when called “Thug Kitchen”

    They have skme killer recipes but I’ll never again buy one of their books. Just cant do it, I loved the name, loved the food and the way they wrote their book. Now I say fukk em.... But if you ever want a vegan type book that is absolutey killer and you’ll probably use some of the recipes for the reat of your life, pick up their first book

    They should have taken that shit to the highest court in the land, if possible. Someone has to establish some kind of precedent here.

    I love the motto too, "Eat like you give a fukk"...

    On the contrary, when you order tacos and they bring them without meat you know what happens if you complain?

    The waiter puts his sunglasses down over his eyes and says “Deal with it” as Dr. Dre kicks on on the background.

    I agree. There seems to be some sort of cultural misappropriation going on with those asses. Tough to tell though without seeing their faces. Could be cuban which would be acceptable, but if those are white girls, that ain't right.

    The most racist commercial ever and they didn't/don't even realize it til this day.

    Is this vaginal hygiene commercial racist?
