#Repost || Aunt Jemima and Friends Hit the Road or Another Chapter in the History of American Stereotypes

I posted this on my Facebook page a year ago, but it merits reposting here on the Textmex Galleryblog owing to its connection to my book:

Wow! A magic moment in the semiotic history of the Americas as Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and the Cream of Wheat Porter face extinction!

Aunt Jemima

Uncle Ben

Cream of Wheat porter, next?

Here also, is page #142 from Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucination of the "Mexican" in America--where the connection between Jemima and other Ethnic American superstars (I am talking about you, Speedy!) get their day in the sun.
