You know how we are obsessed with renaming every products because they are offensive and racist after a century? We are renaming things like Aunt Jemima, Uncle Bens, Land o lakes, and Eskimo Pies. Products and names we have had our lifetimes, that we always trusted the products themselves and employees countless people. We also had demanded team names change, loco dropped, and now a cancel culture that is endless. Can you image that we have Seniors in high school finding something else to make a federal case out of, flooding social media with some sort of petition, and it catches on, forcing some new thing to cause an uproar? SOUND IMPOSSIBLE right? This is exactly how the current Trader Joe’s offensive titles on a few products started. Not from a national group addressing Congress with an army of civil rights lawyers. A 17 year old high school student from guess where, the San Francisco area, where they decided renaming gender biased Manhole covers, was a state issue. A slew of products forced to drop names when surveys showed nobody was offended at all. We have raised a generation of mentality obsessed with having to find a “victim” label, I’m offended and I’m bullied. Like manhole covers, crosses into absurdity.

Here is a definition of 'cancel culture' by Eugene Gu, MD; quoted from twitter...

"Cancel culture is the suspension of due process and presumption of innocence so that the mob can serve as judge, jury, and executioner based on accusation alone without any examination of the underlying evidence."

from:  https://lostgenerationphilosop.....-canceled/

That sounds like what has been going on lately, but I'm not real tuned in to the social media set.

Yes, it's sad how attempt is made to delete/erase or 'cancel' history; still not sure what that means.  There's too many well pampered, overvalued, UNNECESSARY government "officials".  PO-LO (back and forth) - TICs (add a K) TICKs; living off the blood...
