That is one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves! Some people take offense at anything. Aunt Jemima? I love her. Uncle Remus? I love him. Uncle Bens rice? I don't love rice but get real. "He is still wearing a bow tie on the box" - well GOOD FOR HIM.

Skin, eye, hair, fingernail color is not the issue. Pride is the issue. We all have the same blood color.
