Yesterday's MorningNewsBeat featured a story about how the Dixie Cup found success - a decade after its creation - when it was marketed as a direct response to the health issues created by the 1918 Spanish Flu.
But then an MNB reader posed a question: In 2020, is it politically correct to use the term "Dixie Cup"?
This made KC wonder … where did the name come from? Is it reflective of some sort of racist framing?
The good news: there's this thing called the Internet that allowed KC to get to the bottom of the situation.
