Something is Changing in your Supermarket Aisle

Why The Dignity of Black Lives is Vastly More Important than a Brand or cultural icon.

Good morning!

I do not normally post on the weekends, so I promise to keep this short. (-:

B&G Foods, the company behind Cream of Wheat, is "reviewing" their branding completely. They don't want to add to "systematic racism" by adding to racist stereotypes.

(Here’s a snapshot of the original Cream of Wheat logo…)

So, bravo to B&G Foods for being thoughtful!

But not everyone feels this way. I was shocked to find many angered and disgusted that we'd change a piece of American culture.

But what's more important? Maintaining our vision of America or protecting the dignity of others?

In a post on my main blog, I explored the history behind the logo, my response to the outrage, and Jesus's response to loving our neighbors.

Since you guys experienced a whole series on the Good Samaritan with me, I wanted to share this post with you as well.

One of my goals is to keep Scripture Sauce more brief (wordiness is my weakness), and to let longer posts breathe on my main blog. You are of course welcome to subscribe to my main blog as well (it is way less frequent than Scripture Sauce).

Have a restful weekend, Scripture family!!

His joy,

Jordan
