History[edit]

True that Imperial Sugar started in the early 1800s in what later became known as Sugar Land, TX, and cited was the first owner and that it went through a series of owners. However, revisionist history was evident here, because it left out the fact that that mill, as a coop, was started by a few sugar cane farmers which staffed it in part by slave labor. Some of that slave labor was directly there in that "town," and some of that business was dealt in the Caribbean because of sugar cane farming there as well, also under human slave labor. According to Willis Webb of the Rockdale Reporter,in his article "Sugar Land: from slave labor to 21st Century city," he covered that story back in 2012 and can be found on the same news company's website [1]

I have made no changes in the main article, but only contributed to the talk here for anyone who has the time to make the revised corrections. I'm certain any experienced writer can use this information, in part to add to the main article. As far as someone earlier making comment in someone's contribution of a conspiracy, which may or may not be true, I really know nothing about that, but I'm open minded enough to know that conspiracies abound, also a legal term used in the courts of actual occurrences. I only made comment, although we can't always read a person's expression, in case this or anyone would have the idea that anyone no matter what, who thinks of conspiracy as mentally deranged should think rationally him/herself.

Pioneer[edit]

Checking on the web I can find no indication that Imperial Sugar owns the Pioneer sugar brand. It is owned by the Michigan Sugar company.

Website[edit]

Removed the following for being obvious self-promotion:

"Imperial Sugar's online newsroom is about the entire sugar industry, not just Imperial Sugar, with some articles written by journalists. It was created and is managed by Emmy-winning CBS news correspondent David E. Henderson and his team at The News Group Net LLC.[2] " —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.193.6.246 (talk) 22:11, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
