Trader Joe’s says erasing cultural icons representing minority groups is racist

After being accused of racism by a 17 year old girl, over the naming of an array of items it sells, Trader Joe’s responded that it listens to it’s customers and takes their recommendations into consideration first, before acting on petitions and that erasing cultural icons representing minority groups seems to be racism in itself.

Joe, Ming, Thai, and Jose. If these names are racist, then there's a lot of people in the world needing to change their names, too. Meanwhile if trader Joe's changes it the little thought police-wannabes will claim that the store isn't inclusive enough, and doesnt represent other cultures.

Good for them. Not a customer myself, but they are correct and good on them for having principals.

Good. This is getting out of hand. It's coming to the point where everything is deemed offensive which is absurd. What a world we live in.
