Just wondering. Land O Lakes butter just removed the lovely Indian maiden from it's butter products. I liked that image and it was one of the reasons I bought the butter. That, and being that I have more Indian blood than Lieawatha Faucahauntus.

I know the loss of my business isn't going to make much difference to big companies like that. Just wondering if things like that affect your buying choices.

They lost my business also. My MIL was half Indian. She was a beautiful lady and the young Indian woman reminded me of her. I guess they took the Indian away but kept the land. Sounds like history repeating itself.

I wasn't too happy when they 'updated' her look a while back, but now she's gone altogether.

A lot of companies have lost my buisiness. It is not that hard to choose something else.

I think they just haven't gotten around to changing those yet. It doesn't make sense they would remove her from some and not others if they believe she is somehow offensive.

When a business gets woke, I refuse to support them.

I could be broke down in the desert, with a flat tire and no spare...And if the only towing company for 100 miles was a woke ideologue infested SJW fest, I would walk to my destination instead of giving them a red cent.

Bad choice on their part and won’t be buying. I’m still not buying ANY Proctor and Gamble products after the toxic Man Gillette ad.

They don't sell it here, so I couldn't boycott if I wanted to.

Walmart's "Great Value" butter is cheaper and just as good.
