Call & Post is actually defending its depiction of State Senator as “Aunt Jemima” by saying they don’t intend the reference to be a hurtful depiction.
Seriously, how could anyone take this as a hurtful depiction?
In other news, Call & Post declared “Song of the South” the greatest Disney movie ever made.
Also, “Amos & Andy” were misunderstood symbols of appreciation of African-American culture by white America.
And Buckwheat was “O’tay!” too.
Seriously, if the intent of Call & Post in depicting Turner as Aunt Jemima wasn’t hurtful, then what WAS their intent?
