KingCast presents: Wine of the day; Frangelico vs. Aunt Jemima food fight!

Okay, this Bousquet Malbec is just wonderful, and at a good price point. In its class, it stands alone. Meanwhile on the horizon, the Frangelico vs. Aunt Jemima battle looms large....

"King's blawg displayed a certain flair for visual absurdity...."

"In the white imagination few images are as recognizable as Aunt Jemima. As a negative stereotype reinforcing both racism and sexism, Aunt Jemima symbolically valued the humanity of black women. As M.M. Manring's thoughtful and well written account makes clear, the racist image of the black mammy has had a powerful impact upon American culture and society. Slave in a Box documents the continuing commodification of racial and gender inequality within white America."
