    Petition calls on Cracker Barrel to change its name
    [​IMG]

    ATLANTA -
    Well it started as a joke, but now it's getting a surprising amount of support[​IMG].

    A petition posted on the website Change.org is going viral. It's demanding that restaurant[​IMG] owners change the name of Cracker Barrel. Can you guess why?

    Well, apparently the person who started the campaign thinks the name is offensive to white people. But it's not all about the name. The petition's author also has beef with the logo.

    He stated in the petition, "It stereotypes European[​IMG] Americans as people who sit on chairs and lean against what appears to be a bourbon barrel, claiming we are all a bunch of alcoholics"

    So, now you may be wondering what this politically correct activist would like to change the name to.

    Based on the Change.org petition, the top pick is Caucasian Barrel.

    They don't operate in CA, the cost of doing business here is too high for their operations.

    COMPANY NEWS; Sambo's to Alter Northeast Names
    AP - Published: March 11, 1981


    CARPINTERIA, Calif., March 10— Sambo's Restaurants Inc., which operates 1,117 restaurants nationwide, is changing its name in the Northeast in the hope that a new image will win back customers, officials said today.

    They said the change was designed to shift the conception of Sambo's from a breakfast-only restaurant to one that offered breakfast, lunch and dinner, and was not a response to criticism that the name is racist. Sambo's evolved from the name of the chain's founder and former chairman, Sam Battistone, the company said.

    The new name, to be used initially at 18 restaurants in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire, will be ''No Place Like Sam's.'' The chain has already renamed 13 of its restaurants ''Jolly Tiger.''

    Everyone laughs at this because it's white people, but it's no less ludicrous than all these other social justice outrages du jour.

    I am shocked.

    I must have missed the part where he claimed victim status.

    All I saw was a rather salient observation pointing out how a movement to change the name of the Cracker Barrel restaurants, even in jest, is no more ridiculous than similar efforts undertaken by small groups of butthurt activists who wish to change the name of the Washington Redskins. :dontknow:

    He does nothing but complain about how bad he has it in America. You should pay closer attention.
