This post was inspired by Kathy Streib  post about being politically correct when it comes to Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.

As most of you know I love to cook, and I will speak my mind without jeopardizing potential clients. My honest conversations are appreciated by potential clients when it comes to buying land in the greater Los Angeles Area.

Well, my mother bought probably fifty years ago Uncle Ben's rice and loved it. She kept the container and after my parents passed, I kept the container and use it for my utensil holders.

Talk about ironies in life most of you know that it is politically incorrect to say or buy "Uncle Ben's rice" !  

I have not bought rice from this company in decades, the other day Ralph's had so many "points" that I have not used so what should I do before they expire, well I opted on getting "Ben's rice" for free with a couple other items.

Love how you speak your mind and I totally agree with you as always! I will NEVER call it Ben's and will forever call it UNCLE BEN'S and have never, nor will I ever mean any disrespect to ANYONE for calling it that. I think this political correctness is utter bullshit!

 - Oh, I did get it! I think calling it Ben is disgusting! Ridiculous! Insane! Asinine! Insulting! Uncle Benn Rice went on the market before most of us were born in 1943. It was the top selling rice in the United States until 1990. That means ALL people bought the product (Purple, Blue, Green, People, etc.) It couldn't have been #1 if it was what the aholes considered had to be rebranded in 2020 because of racist connotations.

Good morning chef Endre Barath, Jr. ,

How did I miss this post???? I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured it!. I love the Uncle Ben's container you have from your mom! Of course I'm so glad you speak your mind and so agree with all the comments! I like Sheri Sperry - MCNE® cringe at the word: "Reimagined" it is a word that creates a feeling for me of "nails on the chalkboard."  I'm so tired of our language, culture and history trying to be changed!

Uncle Ben's...Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's......Uncle Ben's...how's that for the cancel culture?! Political correctness is like a disease that continues to spread slowly like molasses going downhill on a cold day, Endre.

Reimagined reminds me too much of the Build Back Better farce brought on by this administration...we have seen nothing better in almost 3 years!

The effect PC has on weak minded people is amazing. Even more amazing is how many weak minded people out there today. At church today I almost jumped out of my chair when a woman (about 70 years old) said that the practice of releasing balloons on Easter is horrible because of all the birds and dolphins they kill. There is not one documented case of a dolphin choking to death on a helium balloon! Thanks to Kathy Streib for sending me your way.

Endre Barath, Jr.  I'm So glad Kathy Streib featured this, as I missed it!  I agree with your post. It was always Uncle Ben rice with no disrespect, and Aunt Jemima pancakes and syrup, and no repacking will ever change that in my mind. The disrespect to me is changing it as I adored them.  You cannot rewrite things to what you want them to be - make it real
