Are you glad Uncle Bens are changing their name to Bens Original?

Update:

Will lucky charms be next for the guillotine? where will all this end?

    It’s probably more racist to change the name than leaving it as it is....if he was white and it was called uncle bens then it would never have changed, it seems you can’t have a black person on anything nowadays...the word has gone mad.

    Very few people would have been offended by the rice, but even a minority of a minority will result in things getting changed.

    Are they getting rid of the picture of the black man on there? I think they should add some white people, Asians, Chinese, gays and lesbian's, and a few disabled people.

    I was not aware of that change until this moment. I tend not to buy branded goods in things such as rice.

    Doesn't bother me.  I buy high grade 'Royal Basmati' rice in large sacks from the Pakistani shop.  'Uncle Bens' is third rate.

    stupidity never ends.

    No, it is simple black racism and a company bowing to BLM.  So sick of  black hypocrisy!

    No, just more pandering to the terminally stupid.
