Not everyone is happy that "Aunt Jemima" is getting some changes, taking the character off the bottle because of socially charged racial issues where so many people are canceling things and blaming racism.

A great grandson, who is 66-years-old now, and also a retired Marine Corps Veteran, had gotten to see his great grandmother portray Aunt Jemima at one point. Multiple people have portrayed the character over the years, since 1893, as it wasn't always just one person.

Nancy Green kicked it off as Aunt Jemima when she was first came out as the character back at the Chicago's World's Fair in 1893. She was serving pancakes. Green was a former slave.

Later on, this man's great grandmother, Anna Short Harrington, reportedly took the role in 1935, becoming Aunt Jemima. She was working at a New York State Fair at the time.

His name is Larnell Evans Sr. and he's upset and calls it an injustice to have Aunt Jemima removed from the packaging of the Quaker Oats products. He made a statement about it, expressing how it's part of his history and Quaker Oats has made money off of Aunt Jemima for so long, and the response they have is to remove the black female from their product.

“This is an injustice for me and my family. This is part of my history, sir. The racism they talk about, using images from slavery, that comes from the other side — white people. This company profits off images of our slavery. And their answer is to erase my great-grandmother’s history. A black female. … It hurts.

She traveled all the way around the United States and Canada making pancakes as Aunt Jemima for them. This woman served all those people, and it was after slavery. She worked as Aunt Jemima. That was her job. … How do you think I feel as a black man sitting here telling you about my family history they’re trying to erase?” (Washington Times)

Evans does not believe she should be removed, nor should her legacy be erased. His great grandmother worked for about 15 years as the face of Aunt Jemima.
