Trader Joe’s forced to change the name of their ethnic foods due to outrage of white people on behalf of POC who aren’t offended.

Recommended Posts

Trader Joe’s ethnic products have names like Trader Jose, Trader Ming, Trader Giotti etc which zero of those races found offensive. A petition of like 2k fake outraged white people trying to prove how woke they are from social media made them get rid of these names. Meanwhile all I’m seeing in response from actual POC is that they are sick of whites people being angry for them and it drowned out their voices when they actually want to be heard.

When I first saw this start to become a thing, whatever news source said there was a change.org petition going around with 800 signatures.  800!!  I thought holy cow we are really losing our minds here.  The media is just bored man.

They changed their minds.

Trader Joe's seemed to reverse a decision to rebrand some of its international food labels, denying that the packaging is racist.

After saying earlier this month that it is replacing "any variations" on the name Trader Joe's, the company said in an announcement on its website it will keep "products that resonate with our customers" on the shelves. For decades, the chain has used names like Trader Giotto's, Trader José's and Trader Ming's on international foods.

"Recently we have heard from many customers reaffirming that these name variations are largely viewed in exactly the way they were intended­—as an attempt to have fun with our product marketing," the company wrote.

The grocery chain affirmed that it is discontinuing some older names or product lines that weren't selling well following a review that began a couple of years ago.

A Change.org petition organized by California high school senior Briones Bedell demanding changes to Trader Joe's branding has garnered more than 4,800 signatures as of Wednesday, but the chain said it does "not make decisions based on petitions."

Liberals are now fighting with each other. Wish other companies would give these people a big FU

I am glad Trader Joe's is standing up to this. It's ridiculous to begin with.

Wow that’s great to hear. They shouldn’t be bullied by white facebook warriors trying to look woke. POC are tired of these hipsters being angry And vocal for them thus drowning out their voice when they are actually trying to be heard. Caricatures and stereotypical portrayals of ethnic people are what is offensive to people, not names.

It’s indicative of where we are at. This has to be the first successful society in history that now pays attention to what high school kids say.

Really happy to see they went back on that. They didn’t let their brands get bullied by white people on Facebook trying to fight battles that didn’t need fighting for.

They absolutely never talk to any and are even terrified of them. Half of this movement is people who want to seem overly woke to hide their deep down racial insecurities and guilt. They feel guilty for hiding the jewelry when the black carpet cleaners came so if they poster social media with BLM no one will ever suspect a thing.
