I know this is old, but the last couple of weeks I've been seeing ads from them about getting rid of that name. So why again was Uncle Ben racist? So uncle Ben is black and he sells good rice... so what? Are black people associated with rice in some negative way I'm not aware of?When everything is racist (Uncle Ben) nothing is racist.
All races are racist. But, it's not nearly as rampant as some would have you believe.
