The mob put pressure to erase a Black character and in doing so deprived a family of royalties. It's amusing how this behavior is totally progressive now:
The Quaker Oats Company have given Aunt Jemima a new name and new look, but the families of some of the women who portrayed her over the years feel they are being erased. [...]
The relatives are upset that the brand has been renamed Pearl Milling Company, discontinuing the Aunt Jemima brand. Hunter, who said both his great grandmother and his grandmother portrayed the fictional character for the company, said the move not only cheats his family out of earnings both women are due, but also erases them from history. He's pursuing litigation.
"They are engaged in a propaganda campaign to steal not only the royalties from my family, but change the name," he said.
