The maker of Eskimo Pies will change the 99-year-old brand name of the ice cream treat, the company said Friday — becoming the latest organization to overhaul the marketing of a product with a racially tinged moniker in recent weeks.

The owner of the Eskimo Pie, Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream, said in a statement they had been considering renaming the chocolate-covered ice cream bar and popsicle for some time.

"We are committed to being a part of the solution on racial equality, and recognize the term is derogatory," the company's head of marketing said in a statement.

"This move is part of a larger review to ensure our company and brands reflect our people values," the company added.

Along with the name change, the company will alter the treat's marketing scheme, which traditionally featured a young boy dressed as an Eskimo in a snowy environment.

The move comes after brands such as Aunt Jemima's syrup and Uncle Ben's rice have said they will would overhaul their controversial imaging amid online criticism.

Cream of Wheat, which features a black chef as their mascot, said Thursday they would review their marketing strategy.

"We understand there are concerns regarding the Chef image," said B&G Foods in a emailed statement, adding that they "are initiating an immediate review" of the cereal brand's packaging.

The shift in advertising comes amid widespread protests in America over police brutality and systemic racism in the United States.

I don't spend my timing worrying about things I cannot change. The naming of some teams like Redskins and Chiefs were meant to show respect and admiration for American Indians.

Then along came self-loathing and guilt ridden liberals, wanting to rewrite and obliterate history by changing names, toppling statues, and banning books.

Greg,

I can buy that the name the Indians and the Cheifs were meant to be respectful, but not the Redskins. Sorry, naming a team after Indian scalps is not respectful and the owner knows it. 

And please don't make a strawman argument out of this. None of these words re-write history, and I am not talking about statues (which I feel have their place, like in a museum) or banning books, which I don't believe in.

  No Sane person sees an ice cream treat called an eskimo pie and thinks it's a racist insult. But by all means, let's wipe all references to eskimos from our vocabulary. Wiping all references of eskimos  from popular culture will certainly keep paternalistic white people from being offended on their behalf as we ensure we are never reminded of their existence.

I agree 100%. But also, if someone means it to be offensive, then one should be offended. But those words were used by people who meant to insult. And I am sorry, but I have yet to find "Mic" brand potatoes or "Donkey" brand beer. When you can find the exact equivalency I'll be happy to have the discussion with you.

But by all means, let's wipe all references to eskimos from our vocabulary. Wiping all references of eskimos  from popular culture will certainly keep paternalistic white people from being offended on their behalf as we ensure we are never reminded of their existence.

I find it really ironic (and a bit self-flagellating) that the word doesn't come from white folks, but from an Indian to Indian insult. Read what I wrote.

No but you can find lucky charms cereal and buy "fighting Irish" branded clothes.  Calling a potato  "Micks favorite Potato" would be a great  idea. Wouldn't have a problem with it. 

 but from an Indian to Indian insult.

So what? It doesn't matter where the word comes from or meant hundreds of years ago in some other language.   It only "means"  what it's understood to mean and neither the makers nor consumers of the product take it as some sort of secret insult.   

It's amazing how hard people work to find offense.

The Fighting Irish is not an insult and Lucky Charms as a term isn't either. Where is the offense, when the Irish themselves still believe in this folklore? 

It's not a secret. It is well known in areas that they live. And as I said when I started this, I am not Inuit, so I can't speak for them. I have known Inuits and they dislike the word immensely.

That's the point Perrie. Eskimo is not an insult in English. It's simply not.   No more than the word  Irish is. Or German or Italian. It's a neutral word used by Americans to describe an ethnic group.

True.

And even beyond not being an insult-- it seems to me its an actual compliment!

About Notre Dame's football team:

The school claims 11 national championships, but the NCAA recognizes them with 13.

Moreover, Notre Dame has 21 national championships recognized by all major selectors; this is tied with Alabama for the most in the FBS.

Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Ohio State share the record of seven Heisman Trophy winners.

Notre Dame has produced 102 consensus All-Americans, 34 unanimous All-Americans, 52 members of the College Football Hall of Fame, and 13 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, all NCAA records.

Notre Dame has had 495 players selected in the NFL Draft, second only to USC.

Sparty,

I have no idea why they are changing their name other than their statement:

The owner of the Eskimo Pie, Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, said in a statement they had been considering renaming the chocolate-covered ice cream bar and popsicle for some time.

“We are committed to being a part of the solution on racial equality, and recognize the term is derogatory,” the company’s head of marketing said in a statement.

“This move is part of a larger review to ensure our company and brands reflect our people values,” the company added.

So it doesn't seem that there was a request to do so. Maybe they were just trying to be nice.

Confused about the word Eskimo?

It's a commonly used term referring to the native peoples of Alaska and other Arctic regions, including Siberia, Canada and Greenland. It comes from a Central Algonquian language called Ojibwe, which people still speak around the Great Lakes region on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border. But the word has a controversial history. (Editor's note: And that's why it's not used in the  stories on Greenland  that NPR has posted this week.)

People in many parts of the Arctic consider Eskimo a derogatory term because it was widely used by racist, non-native colonizers. Many people also thought it meant eater of raw meat, which connoted barbarism and violence. Although the word's exact etymology is unclear, mid-century anthropologists suggested that the word came from the Latin word  excommunicati , meaning the excommunicated ones, because the native people of the Canadian Arctic were not Christian.

So no. I love how all the non-Indians are experts on the word Eskimo. It is an Iroquois word that means "blubber eater", which was meant as an insult. Inuits (which their real name) is the proper Algonquin word for the tribe. Now I am not sure if the Inuits made this request or not, but saying that the word is not meant as an insult is wrong. It is. That wiki page needs to be updated.

I have stayed off this seed for personal reasons. 

But now, since people are insisting to continue , I am going to say something. 

When the ice cream company named the thing Eskimo Pie 99 years ago, we can be sure they didnt care AT ALL about what the indigenous people the Inuit thought about it.  They might as well have been cigar store Indians for all the ice cream company cared. 

Today, there are only 148,000 of these arctic region inhabitants IN THE WORLD. Only 16,000 in the US.  . They are not a large enough group to either be a market for the ice cream or to influence a boycott of the name. 

Evidently the name "eskimo" is offensive to some of these natives. So the ice cream company is belatedly doing the right thing and changing the name of the ice cream bar. 

Its not that fucking complicated. 

Personally I find it refreshing that a corporation will do something like this without being faced with a huge adversary with a lot of high powered groups behind it.

Don't both Trump and DeBalzio eat pizza with a knife and fork?  To each their own when it comes to food.  No matter  how you eat it, tastes just as good.  My roomie in college loved rocky road ice cream but never used a spoon.  She would use a plastic ruler.

I don’t know how they eat their pizza. When I make it at home I sometimes have to use a knife and fork, it’s so full of delicious sauce, cheese and toppings, you almost have to.

I am still against eating snicker bars with a knife and fork though, I don’t care if it does taste the same. 😀

Since the left is trying to erase their history with owning slaves, founding the KKK and now trying to topple statues of their ancestors, should we also try and erase these people from history?

This same type of letter may have been sent a thousand times from a slaveholding father to his slaveholding son in mid nineteenth century American South. But William Ellison and his son, Henry Ellison, were different. William Ellison was African American, born into slavery in April of 1790 with the name April Ellison to a slave mother and white slavemaster father, Mr. William Ellison. As a young man he was apprenticed to a cotton gin maker rather than working in the fields and allowed to keep a portion of the wages he earned for his master and father, money that he later used to purchase his freedom. At the same time, he changed his name to William Ellison, after his father, to fit in with higher society. After purchasing his family, he moved to Sumter County, South Carolina and hired out other free African Americans to work in his cotton gin shop. While working, he discovered a common problem among freed slaves in the South. The expense of wages left him with a profit that would never compete with what slaveowners were earning. Wanting to move up in society, he purchased his first slaves in 1820.

By 1850, Ellison had 37 slaves while his sons owned another 16. He was one of about 180 black slave masters in South Carolina at the time, most of whom were former slaves themselves.
