Could someone please explain the stereotype that Aunt Jemima represents? I am confused because I kinda wish that Aunt Jemima did represent a stereotype that I have of blck women. I seriously don't think that this move will have any affect on current stereotypes of blck women.

I think I'll go buy some now, could be worth something in the future on ebay.
