Thursday, May 18, 2023 — There has never been a time in American history when whites weren't resolutely racist. 

That's why we never see non-whites honored in the past. 

Except, we do. 

Aunt Jemima was the black woman whose image graced breakfast brand packages from 1889 until June 2021. 

Uncle Ben was the black gentleman whose image enticed shoppers on white rice packaging from 1946 to 2020.

Then there was the unnamed Indian maiden whose image appeared on Land O'Lakes butter packaging. The cooperative was founded on July 8, 1921. 

One hundred years later the Indian maiden's images was scrubbed as were those of Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben. Such images are untenable to the woke left. They are reminders that whites historically held honorable blacks, Indians, and other non-whites in high esteem. It doesn't fit the narrative.

The excuse to scrub their images from our national memory and conform to the woke distortion of reality is, of course, racism. Aunt Jemima, for example, reinforced the "Mammy" archetype of black women, we are told. Uncle Ben reminds us of Uncle Tom. And the Indian maiden? Make up your own excuse for her expulsion from history. 

Truth be known, respectable non-whites were revered and honored by whites.

Then there was Grand Ole Opry pioneer DeFord Bailey, the "Harmonica Wizard." Bailey was instrumental in the founding of the popular music venue at a time, we are told, when blacks were kept in the background.

The official — but fake — history is that whites are inherently racist and non-whites have always been their victims. Again, that fake history is reinforced by erasing reality. 

Baily is the exception. 

The city of Nashville is naming a street after him [source]. It will serve as a reminder that blacks were, in fact, included — even in the white-dominated domain of country music .

For the three decades — the 1920s, 30s, and 40s — Bailey's popularity is evidence that white Americans' prejudice against blacks was limited to those displaying savage character content, not skin color. 

According to

DeFord Bailey (December 14, 1899 – July 2, 1982) was an American country music and blues star from the 1920s until 1941. He was one of the first performers to be introduced on Nashville radio station WSM's Grand Ole Opry,[5] the first African-American performer to appear on the show, and the first performer to have his music recorded in Nashville.[6] Bailey played several instruments in his career but is best known for playing the harmonica, often being referred to as a "harmonica wizard".
