You Don’t Have A Problem With This Cheerios Commercial Do You?

You Don't Have A Problem With This Cheerios Commercial Do You?

So as Bugs Bunny
once said: “What kind of deviltry I can do next?”

How about this just released Cheerios commercial which has gotten some people upset. No joke. It’s
been brewing something of a firestorm, but I don’t see it. And I’m willing to bet you won’t either, but who knows?

The commercial features an obviously bi-racial child
questioning her mother about the benefits of eating Cheerios, which leads to an amusing
punch line.

Most people think it’s sweet and charming, however some
others are not taking to it too kindly.

Some white (and black people as well) are very upset that
an interracial couple are featured in the commercial. But for others, there’s a much more devious message behind the commercial – one calling it “sinister,
and another saying that:

“The
little half white child is awake and aware and inquisitive while her Black
daddy is asleep with no lines so it shows the progressive march of the white
race as Black people slumber”.

Another one said: 

Only
time you see a black man at peace is when he’s with a white woman.

Hey, who’s going to argue with that?

Just
kidding, just kidding.
 

But seriously folks, all jokes aside, I
don’t have to tell you that we have our “issues,”
but is this going too far?

Or do you have a problem with the spot yourself? What do
you say?

What color do you think Jesus was? Most people in his part of th world were at least swarthy and sometimes black.

Looks like this mess came up yet again. The Cheerio commercial with the father and his biracial son asking about what is his favorite-is edited as well.
The photos of the white mother and kid are blurred out. Mind you there are 2 versions of that ad. Just google What’s Your Favorite CHeerio commercial. I had to look 4 times at it before I noticed it.

It’s funny, I never thought twice about the commercial because I see interracial couples all the time but when I asked my brother if he saw anything wrong with this commercial and he said "cheerios are gross" I think people have issues. This commercial is adorable.

My Name is Barb Leo from usa, I wish to share my testimonies with the general public about what this same man i once saw on this forum called Dr.Agbazara of AGBAZARA TEMPLE has just done for me , this man has just brought back my lost Ex husband to me with his great spell within 72 hours. I was married to my husband Alana Evans, we were together for a long time and we loved our self’s but when I was unable to give him a child for 4 years he left me and told me he can’t continue anymore then I was now looking for ways to get him back until i saw Dr.Agbazara contact on this site about his powers. Please do also contact him in any problem you are passing and see for your self on:
(agbazara@gmail. com OR call him on +2348104102662.)

Rick, I suggest you either update your web browser or change your bifocals. You're never going to attract a woman digging through year old posts.

You dumbass hypocrites

You all are a bunch of race card racists.
You guys say I don't have a problem with the Cheerios
Commercial do you but what then you turn around
And say everything and anything
That does not have a black person
In it is automatically racist. Blacks in America are
Funny. If it does not benefit you in some way
You throw your hands up in
Protest and say the rest of America
Is being racist towards your black
Ass. Really? Maybe you should open
A book one day and look up the definition
Of the word racist. I'll give you a hint:
A racist is not someone who puts only 1 black
Person in a movie or commercial or on
A party invitation.
Man you African Americans are funny lol
And what the hell is an African American
Anyway? I know more about
Africa than you all do and I'm not
Even from there lol

I find this rather hypocritical especially from some White Men complaining on how the should be able to disagree with the commercial. White men have been paired with every race of women in TV, movies and commercials, and nobody should bat an eye. I have not seen Black Men, Asian Men and Latin men get upset when White Men are all "over their women" in movies and television.

The fact that in cheerios commercial, you guys are fuming and the damned thing is, the black husband and the white wife had NO SCENCES together. If the commercial were reversed and it was a Black Women and a White man, you guys would not say shit. Hypocrites.

Nancy

Yes I do find it offensive. I don't apologize for my feelings . Children in these relationships always have a difficult time in life. That's the way it is no master how people on the far left try to make it ok. It'll be another. 75 to 100 years gore acceptance . It's not racism it's com mom sense.

Zack

The commercial is not meant to be offensive. However, some us can better understand why it may cause reactions. We can not all be open minded well adapted human beings. Some of us so called humans still think that we are defined by our colour. I guess evolution still has some catching up to do.
My husband is black and I am white and we have three beautiful bi-racial kids. We both are from the same Country so not sure how colour could define cultural differences? The only thing that we fear is racist people who somehow think they have the right to comment on our lives or tell us what we can or can not do. If you have a problem with bi-racial people of any colour, creed or mixed races, then you are a racist no better then anyone who abused your ancestors or took part in some stupid KKK ritual. You are all cowards.

I love my Wife!

As a Proud Educated White Man from the South I am appalled that this idiot below me is living in the same regional location as me on planet Earth! I am for real. This all complete and total BS!! The little girl is very cute, the daddy is a proud father and the mother and father and daughter are all happy they are bringing a new life into the world… That being said, who cares what race the couple is/are… Seriously? I am sick of this rhetoric! My beautiful wife is black, I am Caucasian, our daughter will be mixed and look just as cute as the little girl on the Cheerios commercial. The only hypocrites that think this way are under cultured, flaccid micro phallus sperm drinkers.

Proud to be white

As a proud educated white man from the South, I am appalled by the new Cherios commercial. Over the past few years, our media, and government have attempted to depict blacks and whites living in harmony in the same households. This can and will never be achieved due to our cultural differences. I whole heartedly believe that the depictation of blacks and whites by our media has a deeper psychological inspiration on our younger generations by implanting them with positive images of racial harmony. I believe our media employs Hitler tactics to slowly erode our beliefs in order to change the younger generations to believe what they see is normal. Of which, the real world knows it is not.

I think it is sweet and a pretty good representation of an American family. Shocker I'm sure… white women marry black men/black women marry white men and have black/white children. If I was the owner of cheerios, I'd do spanish/black one next, then gay/lesbian, maybe even a man with 5 wives, and after I have pissed off enough people- I'd start over.

Hey America (black &white)… get your panties out of the twisted wad and stop being so uptight. Life is too short to give 2 craps about the meaning of a commwercial. This is just further proof that we are too sensitive about our skin in this country. I personally don't choose to like or dislike anyone for being white or black – doing so is a prime example of ignorance.

Seriously though, we don't have enough issues in this country?..we gotta bring cheerios into it? Sad…

Andrew

I see nothing racial here. The daughter, while simply being cute, asks her mother a legitimate question while the father is lying on the couch and finds his daughter poured Cheerios on him and on the couch as a cute child who may have misinterpreted the whole Cheerios/Health scenario might. Anyone who started the racial thing is the only thing racist amongst this. This whole thing about race is absolutely ridiculous. There have been other instances of race being brought up where there have many times been no connection whatsoever. When will this absurdness come to an end? Seriously, people! KNOCK IT OFF!!!

Natalie

I don't think there is any issue of black or white here. I think it's typical for a dad to be resting on the couch if he's off while the mom is going about her day. Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, whatever. Across the board it is not uncommon to see a dad sleeping on a couch LOL.

I have no problem with the bi-racial nature of this commercial. I DO have a problem with the father immediately caving in on the kid's demand for a puppy. The kid holds the parent hostage. The kid has ALL the power. And that is the case too many times nowadays. It's part of why this country is headed in the wrong direction.

The father's response should have been "we'll see". Not "deal".

The people that say, "I don't even see race" are lying first off. We all do in some form and to deny it leads to denial of the bad things that happen in relation to it. Now that that's outta the way, I will say this. When I saw this commercial, I thought it was cute that a little girl cared about her dad enough to pour Cheerios on his heart. I thought it was a great message about health and what Cheerios can do to improve it. I thought it was a great family oriented commercial as well. While I recognized the races of those depicted, I never thought any deeper about it. That's the problem, we think too much sometimes. The commercial wasn't about superiority, class, or anything in that arena. It was about Cheerios, health and family.

Marls

I'm bi-racial and am actually glad to see a bi-racial child on TY you never see them.

Deena

Sadly, innocent messages like this get analyzed to death by people & made out to be racist when it's none of the sort! If anything, it promotes diversity. Wake up people. The people who are insisting that it's racist because the dad is napping on the couch need to seek counseling and stop the paranoia- no one is out to get black people anymore. We aren't in the times of slavery or segregation.
If we are going to analyze every little thing we observe in this commercial, we should take notice that the dad is napping on the couch, dressed! He's not in bed, still in his PJs for crying out loud. For all we know, it was early morning and the man just got home from his 12 hour night shift as a supervisor somewhere! I mean good GOD! Calm it DOWN crazies!!!! These tv ads only have a small amount of time to get their message across to the viewer and to me, that message was that this little girl was showing her dad that she's concerned for his health. THAT'S IT! NO hidden meaning.
If you're not any more intelligent than what you're showing, turn OFF the TV and crack open a book. :-)

Markahc

Gee! I thought the commercial was about a little girl concerned about her dads health. Never thought about it being a statement on black &/or white

And Jimmy, I bet you have a black friend – or two?

My point: Why did you feel it was necessary to tell us the race of your spouse? Well, ask your black wife how we view/perceive a white person who volunteers those types of remarks when racism if the topic of discussion. Anyway, right on cue, you didn't disappoint that which we already knew. Well, if you're still in a quandary about what I am suggesting, lets take a look at something that gives us (and you) a glimpse of who YOU are.

"Pay attention the next time you see an identity theft commercial. The perp is almost always white. I would ask if this is not racist, but that would be a stupid question; of course it is!"

Really!? That's racism? WHY?

How about the fact that the majority of identity theft victims are white and the perps ARE almost always white, do you think those FBI facts might have been part of the decision making process leading to the commercials you're referring to?

So Jim, can you fairly and objectively think about how your entire comment may be viewed as a disingenuous joke? If not, lets take one last look at why you're sick and what you're proposing.

"I'm sick [of] one-sided race conversations. How can one argue against racism when they only talk about half of it!?" ~ White Sick Jim Who Is Married To a Black Woman

Well Jim, get this party poppin', tell us the other side of the story. Lead us in a conversation on how black folks can be so racist against whites, including fair minded and liberal whites like yourself. Also, include why you believe such a "two-sided" (whatever in the hell that is) race conversation is needed in this forum. But, before you start, don't forget to ask your black wife where you may have tipped your hold card.

I am a white man married to a black woman. I detest racism of ALL types; key word ALL. While I have no problem in the world with this commercial, I do have a problem with a one-sided view of racism. Pay attention the next time you see an identity theft commercial. The perp is almost always white. I would ask if this is not racist, but that would be a stupid question; of course it is! I'm sick one-sided race conversations. How can one argue against racism when they only talk about half of it!? What do you think Martin Luther King Jr would say? He fought for humans to stop being racist towards EACH OTHER; not just for whites to stop being racist toward blacks. All I ask is that you think about this fairly and objectively.

I say it's a great commercial. Men sleep on couches while women do other things. It is what it is. My father was ALWAYS on the couch while Mom was in the kitchen. He wasn't black, nor was she. It's a guy thing!!! Who cares?? Only people who aren't comfortable with their own place in life.

Andrew Ligon

I think there is nothing wrong with this commercial. When I saw this on the television I did not even notice the races of the characters. I do not think it matters either. I could see this commercial being equally effective with any mix of characters. One thing I did notice in the comment section is a number of people posting responses that I do not really think they thought through.

FOR EXAMPLE
CASH: "The only thing I could think about was the black daddy in bed and not at work. What an accurate description. The second though black people don't eat ceriel. They eat grits and corn bread." There are such things as Saturdays and holidays. The child was not at school so how come you would assume that the father is missing work? This is an untenably racist comment which does not contribute to anything good.

JAKE: "Listen to all the brainwashed DWBs repeating their rote slogan that IR children are "adorable". How about all-white children – are THEY adorable? This is just more of the endless liberal media pairing of white females with black males. The lib media acts as a billion dollar unpaid pimp for black guys." I believe you can say interracial children are adorable without excluding white children. Honestly I think children of every race are adorable. I would also like to know more about this united entity called "The Liberal Media." Despite of how we describe the media in language as an over generalized term there are not divided into factions which actively work in cohesion to fulfill a desired social outcome. I believe you would find it fruitful if you thought about the world in more mundane realistic terms which takes into account that people are people rather than drones of an identity.

JOHN: "man let me tell you if there isn't enough shit going on in the USA already a stupid commercial teaching or should I endoctrinating little children to conform to the social deviations and taboo I say boo hiss to the fags that made this commercial" If it simply takes a commercial to indoctrinate someone I feel like I would have started using dove shampoo and worrying about the health of my pores ages ago! I think you overstate what a commercial is and can do. Commercials are about making money, perhaps they thought showing an interracial couple would help make the product more relatable to the prospective buyers. I also do not know why you would think that if more people chose to fall in love and have children with someone of a different skin color that this would cause a problems. The pseudo science which supported this line of thinking, like phrenology, has long been discredited.

ELSE: (a selection) It's called targeted hate, and it's genocide. This forced diversity, and promotion of mixing with outside races is only going on in America, and Europe. Primarily white countries with cultures and heritage of their own." I think you are misinterpreting the reality. There is no forced diversity. There is no legal apparatus or underground group in America, or Europe I would venture to say, that actively and effectively forces people into interracial relationships. It is not genocide, I do not know why you would think that it is. People are not being killed off in great numbers because they are white. Countries do have their own heritage and culture and they can and do keep them regardless of the skin pigment of the citizen celebrating that culture.

DAVID: "Great commercial. What's not to like. Can't we all just grow up?" I agree with David, if everyone would calm down and mind their own business the world would be much better. Though I must say. I can tell you what is not to like about the Commercial. It's Cheerios it's such a terribly bland choice in breakfast cereals.

JAKE

Why is there never any "cute" advertisements pairing off white guys with black women in this way? The answer, for all you brainwashed and dumbasses, is that the ad isn't about "cute", it's part of the endless effort by the white liberal media to denigrate white men, implicitly in this case, and explicitly in many others. Come on liberals – explain why there is the endless pairing of black men with white women in ads, and not the reverse.

Trooth

No brother would go for that skinny ass woman. Knees together and daylight through the thighs. Yuck.

Nia

Everyone is acting like this commercial is te start of a "genocide"? There is plenty of people still dating their own race. There is a small few that date outside of there race. I'm a black woman an I love white men and both of my parents except that. White men have always lived black women. There was plenty of cases of the slave master cheating on his wife by raping the BLACK slaves and having babies with them. I understand that you want your race to be a strong race and all but a few people dating interracially isn't going to impact your life what so ever. Don't be mad because the white girls want the black d..k now lol.

Derik

Why do some people make every little thing about race? The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this commercial was "how cute!" How sick a mind does it take to think "this is racist!" Wow. Some people just need to grow up.

Jeff

I'm a black man married to a white woman and, we have bi-racial children. It's about time we broke this ridiculous barrier and aired a commercial such as this one. It's neither racist nor, controversial. Some idiots just need a reason to protest…..

Jake

I've seen this commercial on tv, and I think it's cute. I see nothing racist about this commercial. Why there was such a controversy surrounding the ad is beyond me. If it depicts a couple who love each other and their child, that's what matters to me.

Jono

I'm a bi-racial man (black Dad white Mom) and I don't see how anyone could find this racist. The black man is clean cut, and dressed like a normal American adult. It's not like he's suited up in a Jordan outfit with a half drank forty on his lap and a blunt still lit in his hand. Who cares if a couple is interracial or not if you do you have problems, but it doesnt bother me none 'cuz it's not gonna stop me from f###ing white women ;)

Jake

Listen to all the brainwashed DWBs repeating their rote slogan that IR children are "adorable". How about all-white children – are THEY adorable?

If you dont want to be in a interracial relationship then dont be simple as that but as for me I am married to a black man and we have 2 little girls and yep im white . Whoever is bothered my this can kiss my ass

Yvonne Rag

Personally I'd like to be doing what daddy is doing…..passed out on the couch knocked the hell out! As for the little "bi-racial" girl…how sweet, she poured cheerios on her dad's chest right over his heart to keep him healthy, alive, and with her for a long time to come. For the white mom/wife……welllll that's part of life. They found each other, fell in love, and had a child! Ain't that what the hell most people in love do? I am a black woman and I say: "Be happy, live, and let live!" How can people do their "own" thing if they are busy trying to do other people's thing?

Jason

What is stupid here is not necessarily the commercial (that's a given with most things on television), but rather that people are looking at television as an instructor. People are not raising their children properly with a critical eye, which in most cases is because they have less and less time owing to our 5 minute culture. Do I support racial mixing? Not really one way or the other on it. I think a bit of mixing is okay, sure, but I do not support a grand amalgamation into one mass culture and one colour – diversity is strength and if we are all the same, it will be boring and could set us up for a biological disaster with regard to sickness and viruses. The people that want that are cultural marxists without any scientific knowledge and the big business class that wants us easier to manage.

I loved the commercial and think it's completely adorable. It's a positive commercial and I completely agree with the comments made by the commentator. Negative people need to find positive things to do with their time. What ever happened to free love. #movingon

Tim from a few hours ago…you're stupid. Not adoreable. Who cares about the color of anyone's skin. The people who comment, good or bad, about this (or any) commercial that features a mixed race or even just white people, or black people, or Hispanic, or fat, or gay, or religious, or Asian, or men, or women, or any human in any way bla bla. It's sad when anyone sees anything but people. The people who complain always seem to be the people who complain about stupid crap. If you can't see that it's just a commercial and not a race thing then die already. We don't need you. We are humans. If you want a free country then act like it. I've seen this commercial a dozen times but never cared to notice it was biracial. Have you ever noticed that in the McDonald commercials the people aren't fat? Any complaints? No?

Tim

So….a child asks her Mom if Cheerios are good for you. Mom responds that they are "heart healthy". Cut to next scene….Dad wakes up with Cheerios on his "heart" if you will….that is so stinking ADOREABLE ! It's so honest….it is exactly how a child would think…
NOTHING MORE…..great commercial……

veritas1919

people now a days are so superficial. they don't look past the surface. they are focused on one commercial instead of looking at the whole media industry, an industry that continues to exclude black women. If 12% of commercials, movies and tv series portrayed black women in leading and positive roles this commercial would not anger people. We are written out of the script or continue to play minor roles. We are killed off in very graphic scenes or portrayed as the bitch, sapphire, or whore. Look at disaster films where there are no black female survivors. We are fed up with the lack of the positive portrayal black females in the media. It is long past the time for the industry to include black women. There is no reason why the commercial excluded a black woman as the mother. It sends a message that the only woman that cares about her husband's eating habits is a white woman and that even a child is more intelligent than a black man. We continue to live with people that refuse to recognize that racism is ingrained in our society and that this commercial sends a subliminal message that is racist. They do not recognize the racism because they choose to turn a blind eye.

I am white and raised in a culture of racism, both overt and implied/institutionalized. I have used racial slurs against all races/cultures/religions in the past. It took the power of the Holy Spirit to convict and convince me to love all mankind as The Lord loves us. I still have a long way to go but you CAN overcome it.

M.C.F.

The racist comments here made me so disgusted that I stopped reading comments for fear of reading another one. I really am astonished that negative attitudes about different race marriages even still abound in our society (not counting the types I think of as Billy-Joe Jim-Bobs suckin' on 'shine or Southern Comfort, diddling their kin & their attention to keeping the rebel flag fluttering in their yard the only attention to detail they pay in their binocular lives). When I first saw the commercial, I was like "Alright. Finally a huge corporation has grown balls & decided to just be real. I'm white as copy paper, for what it's worth. lol

DJGirl

Wow, some people got nothing else to do. I don't know how many times I have seen this commercial and I didn't even really notice they were a bi-racial couple. All I noticed was the cute little girls dimples and the OBVIOUS message that she loved her Daddy and wanted his heart to be healthy. A very wise black woman by the name of Zora Sallee once told me that one day we will all be so mixed that we will all be the same color. I believe she is right.

I am white…and I approve of this post.

Jules

I heard there were some people in a snit about this commercial but I DO NOT UNDERSTAND why? I just don't get it. It seems harmless to me. I have seen it many many times & I just don't *get* what the big deal is.

There are a huge numerous amount of people in this country who are bi-racial, or multi-racial, or multi-cultural, or have multiple ancestry spanning countries and regions in this country. The races of the people shouldn't be an issue whatsoever because that is the REALITY of this world!!! Mainstream media/advertising has had this 1950s white-washed and gender role stereotyping forever. Times are changing because it's DIFFERENT NOW. It seems that universally seen things in this country, e.g. mcdonalds commercials, super-bowl, things that most everyone sees on a constantly regular basis, are finally trying to promote the reality of this planet for the first time ever. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNN…. It'll take another 50 years before we'll see an advertisement with a same-sex couple. Do these adverts tell our unconscious mind what should be construed as normal? (e.g. proper gender roles and fulfilling them, races staying within their own race, girls being obsessed with the superficial and boys being aggressive, competitive and egotistical) Why are we letting ourselves be brainwashed? These things aren't the reality of the world! The world is very very different than that despite what you are being shown as normal!!!

Me

I don't see what the big deal is. Why does it have to be white or black? I am white from Irish descent… And my great great grandmother was full blooded tuscoraran Indian…not just black people have been discriminated upon. The Irish were viewed as the scum of Europe while the "white" man killed and raided Indian territories. My grandmother was "bought" from her family to be with my grandfather. That was a long time ago! Why can't people just accept things for how it is? We all use the bathroom and wipe our rear ends the same way. We all bleed and cry! Humanity has come so far…but then we haven't. It's so sad.

CatBrat

I think it's pretty stupid that people have a problem with this, it seems that only ones that have the problems are the dorky white guys that end up with the asian girls 'cause they can't hit the anyone else. And every ad I see now is the white guy/asian girls thing, like they're rebelling (rebelling as in 100's of years of jealousy, back to the 'Othello' days). Advertiser know hwat their doing, and are marketting the trend….Who gives a crap anyways, it's the 21st century and everyone is going to be orange like South Parks said in 200 years anyways. And the kid in the above ad is cute, my daughters best friend is black, native, and white mix….it's all jealousy

ashley

Nothing wrong with this commercial. What is wrong with people…now thats the question…

I don't have a problem with interracial couples. After watching the commercial I do get the feeling that Cheerios is trying to stir up controversy.

Get off your couch, turn off the t.v., open your front door and enter the real world. You will find happily married mixed racial families. Open your mind while you are at it :).

Olivia Wopwasbunn

Thanks Christina! More people should be like you. I live in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area, and we have many, many bi-racial people here. It's a beautiful thing to see. One of my son's classmates, who happens to be White, and had friends from different races, went to a college that was predominately White. She mistakenly (for her), befriended a young Black girl. A few days later her White roommate said, "What are you doing with that Black girl?" She said, "Oh, she's my friend." The roommate said, "No, we don't do that here. You'd better find someone else to be friends with," This young girl returned home in tears and refused to go back to that school. Her parents were quite wealthy, so they sent her to another school that was better suited for her. She's married to a White man, so it wasn't like she was trying to date a Black man, which would be fine too, but these people didn't even want her to be friends with a Black girl. That's sad.

Olivia Wopwasbunn

Castigator of Sages , where in the world do you live? White men are also attracted to Black women. My niece is married to a White man; my grandfather was White, Thomas Jefferson had 7 children with Sally Hemmings who was mixed, but considered Black/slave, George Washington father many Black children. White men have fathered children all over the world; they always have. Look at Scandal, which is fictional, but it shows how a White man can love a Black woman. The show is fictional, but the reality is that there are thousands, and perhaps millions (worldwide) of White men who love women, and some of those women are Black, Hispanic, African, etc. Wow, crawl out from under your rock.

Olivia Wopwasbunn

Mira is so right. Is it unusual for a Dad to take a nap? I don't care what color he is, unless someone is saying that White men never take naps. That would be crazy. The commercial was cute. I've been seeing interracial people my entire life; I'm 64. My Mom was bi-racial, but for years we didn't know it; didn't know it until we were all grown. It wasn't popular back in 1929 when my Mom was born. Since that time, people have been marrying whoever they want to. I used to get annoyed when I saw White women chasing after Black men, and vice-versa, but now I realize that it doesn't make a difference. Who cares? If someone does, they're living in the wrong country. This is America. A country that welcomes all people, and we need to let go of past ignorant feelings. If you teach your child to hate a person from another race, don't be surprised if your child ends of marrying that same person you hated. Kids are drawn to the unknown, and they sometimes feel bad that their parents hated people from another race. When they go off to college, they're often drawn to those people. So, just let it be. People are going to be with who they love, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Mira

Hahahahaha that is so cute!!!!!!!! And yes, the dad is sleeping–but at the very beginning she says "Dad told me…" so obviously there's no implication here that all he does is sleep. I honestly feel like some people just LOOK for any reason to stir up trouble–not most, but some.

Seriously

I think it's an adorable commercial… A little girl heard something from her dad, confirmed it with her mom, and then acted upon it in the quickest way she knew how. Based on that… (understanding of course that this is a commercial) this hypothetical family resembles my own. As I imagine resembles a great deal of families. now there are a lot of racially charged comments regarding this commercial and I personally think that they are ridiculous. First of all… founded in what I imagine is jealousy. A clearly successful relationship must never be tolerated. A family in what looks to be a fairly well off situation also must never be tolerated. But let's claim that it's religious or cultural or racial issues rather than jealousy because it makes us look less petty and more…. I don't know what… it's ridiculous and closed minded no matter what your reasoning. A Fact I feel worth mentioning is that while I do agree that we are all different (and am thankful for that what a bland world this would be otherwise) is that we are all the same color on the inside. regardless of your ethnicity you bleed red blood. you have a heart that pumps and a brain that thinks, eyes that see and so on.. the fact that in today's world we still don't see that blows my mind completely.

Eterna Lee Divided

As long as we continue to remain separate, (racially, economic and social class, origin, etc.) there will always be a divide in America. The perceived "conspiracy" of the Jewish media mogul trying to "keep a brother down" is perpetuated and furthers the divide with one-sided coverage of events like the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case for the first half of 2013. We all experience racism and prejudice on a pretty regular basis. Those of us who deny that are not being honest. Archie Bunker and George Jefferson continue to reside across the fruited plains of America. But unlike these two polar opposites, I am responsible for my words and my thoughts, my actions and my inactions, my involvement and my apathy. I am judged on my actions and not my intentions. It took me almost 50 years to finally understand and to be able to make these admissions. I am not to blame for slavery and deserve no credit for abolition. But until I can finally get right with history, I will have no peace in my present. My resentments will surely destroy me. Forgive those who hurt me, treat others better than they deserve, and hand all of the other stuff over to God, it is a guaranteed win every time.

Its a real miracle temple. Wao! Till today i still imagine how Lord Lugard made me rich and famous..I'm Miss Carol Donald. from Moore-park. before i met this man on the internet, i was very poor, and cannot even afford my daily living. until i encountered Lord Lugard who help me with his miracles, and today i am a rich and famous woman, and he helped me too in getting my husband who divorced me some months back to my life.. I don't know how best to express my feelings and my appreciations to Lord Lugard the miracle worker.. i wanna say thank you FOR YOUR MIRACLES IN MY LIFE. if you need help in urgent money or you want any help from him, no need to die in silence or borrow anymore. why not contact him, and let him help you out..here is his email adress..miracletemple@live.com. And he is also a specialist in all kind of problems.. SUCH AS BRINGING BACK YOUR LOST LOVER. OR YOU NEED A CHILD, OR WANT TO JOIN OR BECOME A MEMBER OF THE ILLUMINATI. he told me to tell you that he is always there to help you, just the same way he did my own. And if you think you do not believe in miracles, why not give him a trial! Thanks to you Lord Lugard the miracle worker… miracletemple@live.com.

Becky Cheney

Unreal! Why are so many people desperate to find racism everywhere? There is enough real racism out there, why create it where it isn't. It's a commercial for cereal. They're not making a political, cultural, or ethical statement. They are trying to sell their product. Do you want them to make 100 different commercials, pairing up every possible racial combination possible on the entire planet? Would that make everyone happy? Maybe every advertiser could do that for every product they advertise? There would be so many commercials out there, they wouldn't have time to air anything else, then people would complain about the number of commercials. Where would it end? Maybe every show could have a cast of 1000 actors. One for every race on the planet? Would that end it? I saw an adorable child, caring about her father and wanting him to be as healthy as possible…because she loves him…THAT'S IT!!! Who cares what race any of them are? It's a mom & dad, who created a beautiful child,who loves them?

Josephine franco

Here we are in 2013 and we still can't get our act together! What in the hell dose cheerio commercial has to do with price of beef in China??? That Black and that White woman are two precious human beings who produced that little angel who poured cereal on her Father because she thought it would make him healthty, and some of you have a problem with these human beings who are precious in Gods eyes,you dont have anything else to complain about but to find a wrong in to something so beautiful.All of you that have a problem with this commercial ,you are insecure,jealous, predjudice and down right STUPID! I am a Black woman myself and Love this commercial. CHEERIOS CEREAL COMPANY PLEASE AIR THIS COMMERCIAL MORE PLEASE!!!

mike

nahh. There are countless shows with black/minority female characters being smutted out by white men. Scandal is one of them. I rarely see a white woman cast as the romantic interest of a black man, in TV and certainly not in film.

Jo Ann Celestine

That cheerios commercial is very cute and funny it keeps,me laughing the little girl is really expressing herself.I know a lots of people that, think it cute. Please keep on playing, because of the older people really like it.It's very cute,thank you very much

Francine Wismann

The Cheerios commercial is one of my favorites. Please keep playing it more and think of other ways to express we are all one I Love it!!!! There was a lady that expressed an opinion about using the word hope and I was looking for a reason why someone would choose not to use the word……….I like the word and I will continue using it. Peace Love Joy and Hope Francine

Truth

Actually our races ARE different. We may all be human, but there are some major internal differences between whites and blacks. It's not just the color of our skin. Ever read a blood test, a CBC test? There are sections which have results for if you're Caucasian, and if you're African American. AND I find it sick that all of these race-mix promoting companies ONLY show white women with black men, but NEVER white men with black women. There is an agenda here. And yes, white women who have relations with black men are marked for life. Attention white women: once you go back, we don't want you back, ever. You're dead to us, and believe me, this is true even though a white man might not show it. The women who interracially date to show political correctness unfortunately had worthless pieces of shit for parents.

Ioni

Oh for god's sake, it's a cereal commercial. The accusations towards it don't even make any sense, and some of these comments are worse. Who even cares that it's an interracial couple, it's not like it would have make a difference. Again, it's a cereal commercial, not exactly the ideal medium in which to make social or political statements about race. The fact that he was sleeping was obviously just a set up for the punch line. I mean, if he was awake, it would make no sense. I don't think this is something I should have to explain…

Nat

omg! omg! This commercial is great! I hate this culture I hate it so much! who the fuck cares that it's interracial! Growing up we were always educated that racist issues were in the past the world was clean except for some issues bumping around here and there, BUT IT WAS SERVED UP AS A NULL ISSUE! I'm so sad to think that I will not live to see the day when racial issues will be laid to rest or even diminished. No one is ever happy or satisfied and EVERYONE! gets kicked in the chops. If fire keeps being fought with fire the whole world is soon to burn. Leave the commercial alone. Perspectives like this will save the world one day if we just learn to embrace them!

Ashley

I see this as an absolutely adorable little commercial, and how can people see the whole 'he's sleeping' thing as bad? He could have taken a nap after getting home from a hard working job. And the same people who whine and bitch about this commercial are likely the types who only agree in free speech when it coincides with what they believe in. I for one, hope that one day, these people will remove themselves from the gene pool so that everyone else can have a much cleaner environment to swim in. Unfortunately, that will never happen, and they will breed more ignorant inbred babies who will grow up being taught the same things that their parents believe, that because a person is different they are less important. I sincerely hope that some day the cycle comes to an end and people can look at a commercial such as this and simply enjoy it. But I won't hold my breath.

debbie

OMG with all the troubles our world is facing right now, Thats all thats of concern. Disn't evan notice that the darling little girl was any differant that any other little girl on TV

Castigator of liberals

Truthseeker, there is something that you don't understand. Every man on this planet wants a white woman. Asians, blacks, latinos, indians, you name it. So, if white women become so liberal that any man of any colour has an equal chance to bed and impregnate her, then white people will disappear. I, being white, naturally feel that white people are the most beautiful and I don't want us to vanish one day. I believe that black men should feel this way about black women, and that Asian men should feel this way about Asian women, and so forth. It's the glorification of the white woman in the media that has everyone chasing after her. I'd like my sons and grandsons to be able to marry white women and not die alone and childless because all the white women let themselves be swooped up by men from other races to make a statement to how progressive they are.

It's people that throw around the mindless accusation of racism when someone is colour conscious that are the bane of today's society. Those who believe someone is evil if he believes white people should remain on this planet and not all become brown, is a crackpot.

David

Great commercial. What's not to like. Can't we all just grow up?

Darren

I don't see any racism here, other then some comments below. I see a well to do couple, living in a very nice house. It must be the weekend; both parents are home and the Father is taking a well deserved nap after a long week at work, Mom looks like she's taking care of bills or something.

TruthSeeker

I believe that you are the racist one here, pointing out stereotypes not knowing whether it is fact or not. You are truly ignorant to the things around you. The only thing different about black people and white people is the color of their skin and for some reason you can't seem to look past that. She's not killing her heritage, in fact she's helping it. She's helping to promote a better world in which racism will not exist. I pray for you and your mind and hope that one day you will look beyond the color of ones skin

Renee

I think its a cute commercial. The little girl is adorable, and face it, this is america. Its good we are free to be who we want and be with who we want. I think its great that they show a bi-racial couple on tv. Some people you cant please. Suck it up. Its real life. There are bi-racial couples everywhere. Stop being so sensitive that you imagine things that aren't there. Its just a family eating cheerios for Pete's sake.

Eddie Trodden

there is absolutely nothing wrong about this advert,,,no racism,white lordiness or anything,,its only racist idiots reading strange crappy insights or whatever from this,,,the media for following the hype,etc,,,its a purely innocent advert about a wee girls concern about her dads health,,,irrespective about colour creed,,inter-racial or anything,,,a happy family,,nothing else,,,

loveit

I don't have a problem at all. I have four gorgeous half babies. Married for twelve years. The brother in the commercial spot is relaxing because he is like me and works 100hrs a week and deserves a nap and his baby girl loves him enough to care about his health. For all the racist out there you neve know your lineage. My great great great grandfather was a confederate doctor and he has a chocolate black grandson. Now that's funny.

Frtch

This is the glorification of the almighty black penus!! In it glory it does nothing but have sex! Nothing else like work, talk, love , share. It is why black men are lazy and unfaithful. It is also why they are good in sports. Glory to the penus, for those couple weeks of ecstasy , before he shows his true colors and goes to sleep on the couch, becomes unemployed, and worthless. I'd love to see the retake of this one year later when the wife is pregnant again, the swirly child is hungry (wishing she could buy some Cheerios) and the smooth brother had moved on to another stupid white lady… Too funny. She should have been true to her roots and not soiled her linage for all history!! This swirly will never be beautiful like her mother, never be accepted, and always be part of the problem. This white lady turned her back on her parents and everything thousands of years of evolution had five her. She basically killed herself.

And all the blacks trolls on here can see is another brother that got his. He knows deep down that he hatese the color and nature of his black women, including his mom, gramma. his sista and any other black women around!! All because of his ode to his primal nature. This truly is the essence of the black…

kasey

how can she look to old lol??? i think she looks like a very pretty woman and didnt look out of place having daughter that age and its a bit pathetic to say she doesnt look like she would be with a black guy??? come on is there a way a person should look??? love is love in many forms … and the advert seems to have caused a lot of opinions but in reality .. it just showed a family selling cherios with a cute little girl ??? if anyone seen more than that you have big problems and the world really has gone mad x

Katie

One that woman looks to old to be her mother
Also doesn't look like she would be with a black
Man. OTHER WISE LOOKS LIKE A CHILD
WAS TAUGHT SOMETHING FROM HER MOM
N SHE LOVES HER DADDY SO WHERE SHE
HAS opportunity TOO LET HIM KNOW HE
NEEDS TO TAKE CARE OF HIS HEART.

white men are so damn gay. Any man can take their women. http://xhamster.com/movies/762729/husband_amp_wife_enjoy_a_bbc_dream_pf1.html?embed=related

Calli

No one cares if black men sleep with white women. We all area aware that white men can't get their penises hard and really are only able to give oral or anal. That is why they are begging our race to have sex with them and the white men (gay) are cuckold. That means they are little dicks and can't function in the bedroom and like to suck black men off while claiming their wives made them do it. So sad. Yes, white woman look elsewhere because your men are weak and gay. How many black men you see in Viagra commercials? Better get Asian woman. They are the only women who will put up with small, impotent dicks for a green card Citizenship.

Mike

It was a cute commercial. Worry about your own horrible twisted souls if you were offended by it. Get a life bc you obviously don't have one.

Fetch

This add is incredibly racist!! It basically says that Black women are not good enough for Successful , normal Black men!!! That's right.. Black women are not good enough!!

Rossana

My Names is Margaret am from United States.. Am giving this testimony because someone out there may have similar problem My Husband doesn’t think polygamy is wrong. He has been seeing another girl for about four months now. I told him that he needs to stop, but he says he is in love with her. They’ve talked about being together “forever” and eventually her moving in with us. My husband still loves me. He regrets getting into this in the first place, but is not willing to just break up with her. He says if they so break up then thy will be it and he will not pursue another relationship. I contacted him on his email: igespiritual.worldhome@yahoo.co.uk who cast a 48 hour spell for me surprisingly my husband came home on his knees begging me to forgive him that he has broke up with his mistress all thanks to DR IGE I pray that God will continue to use you to help people.

First objective of every corporation is to SELL (remember that every time you listen, watch or read ANY media). This is the ROOT of all business, even those that appear to exist for non-profit or humanitarian reasons.

GM employs/contracts highly educated marketing & research staff whose job is to generate the next inspiring pitch to get YOU to buy their products. They have millions $ to spend on developing these advertising concepts into media that will reach out to you AND get you to buy their products.

In this case, mixed race people is a growing reality in our melting pot that is America and more than ever before. These demographic are THE emerging majority, that is, the mixed race kids of the present are the future mothers & fathers of the next gen of mixed race kids and so on.
So, there's no time like the present to hammer down the Cherrios brand, for the present and the future. ALL CORPS WITH THE FINANCIAL MEANS DO THIS.

This is a brilliant ad, as it touched on so many levels: mixed race homes, good health, charm with the cute kid & doting Mom, engaged in a pleasant morning breakfast environ showing the family actually eating a good breakfast, not fast food or skipping the meal entirely.

Notwithstanding any of this, Cheerios is a good cereal, with only 3 gms sugar per serving, and very low fat, low salt and high wheat. GM deserves to have the AHA approval for this cereal. It's not easy to develop a healthy, good tasting cereal kids like when competing with all the sugary, haze-inducing choices out there (which GM also manufactures).

Most American households would do better for their kids if they threw out the Cocoa Puffs & ate Cheerios, or better yet, Shredded Wheat, Maypo, or Old Fashioned oatmeal with a piece of fruit for breakfast.

P.s. Do you think American Dairy FARMERS have any issues with this commercial? I think not. Milk goes on cereal. They need to sell milk. How about the Grain FARMERS? Nope. Need to sell grain to GMills. And so on.

For many people, it'll be hard to face the realities of our rapidly changing world. Folks with the ancient TRIBAL mentality will fare the worst. Racism is nothing more than a survival instinct, enhanced by insecurity and fear of the differences between our fellow humans. I believe that in the future, a "pure race" uprising is a great possibility. Open your hearts, minds and try to view the human race like a wild garden; everything grows in it, but you have to work to keep the weeds OUT. So to all of you haters: STOP HATING.

bmw328

To All the Idiots that think the little girl is making a mess on her Dad & the floor, She is sending a Message that eating Cheerios is Good for Your HEART, that's why she poured on top of his HEART, instead of just looking @ the Color of their skin, Listen & Learn instead of Reacting like Idiots !!!

njtrapper

I think the ad portrays a terrible waste of food. Also, to dump cereal on your sleeping father is disrespectful. Now, what brand vacuum did the lady use to clean up the mess.

Watching the other children's reaction to this commercial was refreshing. Their disbelief that racism, sexism, or any other ism is still alive & kicking, remnants and scars left behind from human-kind's oppressive nature. One answer is, dealing with these past hurts so we can become a stronger community on a broader level. These children made me think, that their may be hope for all of us, after all. I loved the commercial. It made me chuckle.

Sheila

This commercial shows a happy child, well cared for who loves her parents – listens to her mother and tries to help her dad. A functional family
That is what the kids reacted to and that is what you should react to – rather than looking for things not there.
Get over yourselves. Those who don't see that in this commercial probably did not experience a functial family in their lives. How sad.

Untouchable2K

For all the ignorant people who don't like this commercial , Im black and my gf is white. SO FUCK YALL. People are people, got a problem, deal with it.

Dirk Blockwood

Some may see and say lazy man on couch. Some may see interracial couple.

I say, superb marketing strategy. Two largest at-risk groups for heart disease: women and African-Americans. Both demographics represented in one commercial, that's budgeting your advertising production and broadcast dollars wisely. One commercial created instead of two (featuring only a Caucasian family or only an African-American family) .

And there's simple plot development with humorous reveal within 30-seconds, because how would you get the Cheerios all over dad if he's awake?

Let me suggest we take the same commercial and put dad at the kitchen table and mom asleep on the couch. How does that change what you feel or think.

Or let's just have a Caucasian dad married to an African-American wife and play it out that way. Does that change the dynamic of the message or your feelings or thoughts?

lauriNH

YEAH Cheerios & General Mills! It's about time advertising re-presented more of the American public.

doom to all

not at all, I came from a mixed race family as well not the usual. I am half Salvadorian and half Bengali. My mom is white (light) colored and my father is brown but not overly dark. For me I can be anything I can be black, brown, red and even light tan to the most. I am seeing mixed race couples and marriages going on and has been increasing a lot, and you know what it WILL ALWAYS GO ON SO MOVE ON. THERES NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

NualaB

Cute commercial. Eventually, the mom should teach the daughter about marketing, skewing statistics, and taking the claims of agribusiness at face value.

AnyasMom

You have got to be kidding me. According to the Bible – if you would read it, you don't inter-marry! Couldn't you figure this out? I thought the commercial was terribly offensive to the American Family Values. Maybe this wasn't offensive to a country that doesn't belive in God.

sue

@mannyc : I know plenty of Chinese who have married outside their race!!!

Megan

I thought it was cute…

itsme

No kidding, what a terrible message. The kid pours out a whole box of cereal on her dad while all those kids are starving in India. No wonder the rest of the world hates us, we're so wasteful. That box of cereal could have fed a village for a week on the Indian sub continent. Jeezzz.

Makayla

Guys, this is simple. Racism it horrible. I don't understand how people can actually think that skin pigmentation can mentally change someone. If you get a tan, do you get dumb? If you get pale, do you get stupid? And vice versa. It's just skin colour. People look different. Racist people are people with some delusion that black or white people are actually mentally different.
Unbelievable. Whoever stereotypes races into fictitious category's should take a look at reality.

And don't go saying that only a black person can marry another black person, or a white person can only marry a white person, because that is the most stupid thing I have ever heard. Saying that is being racist, it's simple as that. And how much respect do racist people get? None, except from other racist people who can share the same twisted views on their next door neighbors.
People who complain about this commercial are both racist and neurotic. This commercial is the last thing that I would have a problem with.
Seriously people, be logical. Look it up. Colour has nothing to do with anything – if that's not common sense, I don't know what is.

Common Sense

Why are the products in a commercial the only thing not noticed in a commercial anymore?

Naive

Gosh, I really missed the whole point. I thought people were going to be upset because some little girl poured out a box of cereal on her Dad. That is, being a bad example for wasting food or making a mess which ended up on the floor. Silly me.

Marcy

I have no problems with this commercial. This child is portrayed as a child with a mother and a father, the way God intended a family to be. People come in all shades. It is what is in their heart that counts, not what color they are.

Teri Fox

The funny thing is, I have seen this commercial over and over and thought it was cute. All I saw was this cute little girl who loves her daddy and until I read this article I never even noticed that the couple was mixed. People get a life, we need to get passed all this. And before you say anything to me, just know that I am white and married to a black man.

Mare

Oh, and by the way, what really annoys me are the people who don't know the difference between its and it's. Maybe they should stop watching t.v. and stupid commercials and go back to english 101 and figure out how to use the English language correctly.

Mare

I say , if this is what you're focusing on then it's apparent "you need to get a life". Who freakin' cares what color they are. Why can't people just let it be. I hate Cheerios anyway. Never eat them, as they just another junk food that stupid people, who by the way come in all colors, think are healthy.

Lynn

I love the commercial. I think it is so cute when the little girl asks her mother about Cheerios being heart healthy & empties the box on her sleeping father. I didn't look at the commercial as being biracial. I will continue to eat Cheerios for breakfast & who cares if the mother was Caucasian & the father was African American. Loving & caring parents shouldn't be judged on the color of their skin! We are all human no matter what color our skin is & we should all learn to get along!

Samantha

The kid could be me…..no big deal…. I am mixed, my parents are mixed, my grandparents are mixed….Caribbean people all are…LOL

??

I'm white, and I thought: about time…

As far as the father sleeping on the couch? I didn't see a problem with it racially, but that's me. Somehow, in my family, men seem to be able to nap more than women. They say the women "can't stand to see someone relaxing" and the women think the men don't always pull their fair share in the household (which numerous studies show is true.)

I do think men in general are often portrayed in the media as being bumbling idots – in commercials, and in sit coms, and from this perspective – I think the commercial does further this. But I also hate the cleaning product commercial, I'm not sure which one, where the dad and kid come in from fishing and mom jumps up to clean up their mess by squirting clorox or what ever it was…

Now, I wonder if it would have been considered a racial issue if a WHITE dad was sleeping on the couch while BLACK mom waited on the child??

Maybe there's just no "winning?"

Debbie

Gorgeous kid. Pretty good cereal. Ridiculous issue. No PC here…it's just stupid that people even worry about this anymore. Seriously.

Iesha

What the hell is wrong with you people… I mean to see two other races together is like a freak show to you people… Its cute and its funny and I see nothing wrong with it… now if it was however two men married and had a son it would be a little out there( no offence) but I might would be a little off with that. But this however no I loved it… makes me want CHEERIOS everyday!… So to hell with the people who are not going to buy cheerios anymore. My friends an I will search our whole campus for people who also like cheerios and go to the local market off campus and CHEERIOS IT THE HELL OUT!..

George

Does it matter if it is 2013? No their will always be conflict and what you people call "racists". Why do "cereal" companies always have agendas man. Come on most humans go with their own ethnicity nothing wrong with that.

Ayanna

I am tired of having race mixing shoved down my throat. I will not be buying Cheerios. Plenty of other cereals to choose from.

KILLYOURSELFRACISTS

Also, it's funny to see that these poor trolls went online just to post negative comments. That really shows how much time you have on your hand and the fact that in order to get the social attention you desire, you come online to post derogatory comments or put your senseless thoughts online.

Killyourselfracists

I think the only people who strongly disagree with the commercial are uneducated trolls who dropped out of high school and now have a minimum wage job with no friends. So they have no clue whats going on in the real world and get upset when they see something different. My advice to those people: kill yourself. Your presence is not needed and you have nothing to live for on life. Do it now before it's too late. Thanks!

Reminder

well, well..
I'm offended by the fool language used on some sites. It's NOt being sincere it's being DISRESPECFUL and without maners. I know, most don't care. I will not attempt to say the obvious but will remind those that use the bible for that we are ALL of the HUMAN familly and that all will have to answer for their actions.

God “Hath made of ONE BLOOD ALL NATIONS of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: for in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, for we are also his offspring.” ACTS 17:26 KJV

Max

@Laura you are so full of BS take you fake stats to some other place. You didn't mention that blacks commit more crime then whites why?

brenda

nice commercial makes me wish I had a little girl!

laura

@Rob Grossman
Every body knows there are more whites on welfare than any other race. Of course their will be Africans and Hispanics on welfare with all of the discriminatory practices that have been in place for the past 160 years. Did you know the so called minority loans and grants that the government claimed would be for Africans and other ethnic groups went to 93% white women. No one ever talks about that. Instead they constantly lie about the facts and pretend they don't know who the programs truly support, then expect people to starve. The psyche game isn't working everybody knows who really gets the money and it ain't the Blacks or the Hispanics. Fair is just not in your vocabulary. That is why the books and laws were created to fight any group accept the whites and many whites continue to pretend they are the only one's who want to work. No all whites but just the racist ones who think they can fool people by pretending they are so interested in working, but boy they are the first one's to take a coffee break, schedule days off from work, call in sick and sue a company, you are only fooling yourself, everyone else knows better.

Carol

@Shaniqua
There are so many reports out their that white police officers let whites off when they commit crimes. Even professors who have studies the race wars have discovered this. In the meantime if they can't find anything to charge Blacks with they frame them. They also hunt Black people down looking for who ever they can arrest this is not news. Why do you think they give different sentencing for crack cocaine versus cocaine? Because white people smoke cocaine, millions of them do but they don't get thrown in jail and have their lives ruined. The numbers you constantly spew out regarding Blacks are based on a white penal system to stack the books against blacks. But you already know this. So continue to keep your head in the sand while other foreigners who hate you come to the US and let you know what they really think of this country. Every time we turn around they are hunting and plotting against Americans. But all the white cops have time for is to beat and arrest blacks on frivolous crimes. I can only hope that God opens the eyes of these sick people to stop going down this road of hatred because you are busy hating Blacks the world is busy hating you.

chris roberts

I think we all realize interacial couples are a fact of life.what I don't understand
Is why any company thinks it is their responsibility to promote any agenda, unless there
Afraid biracial couples don't eat cheerios!

Cristy

wow, I seen this commercial a few times before but didn't think anything of it. funny how some people can be.

Alma

It is not 1950 anymore.

angel rios

I see nothing wrong with this commercial.People just go to far for the wrong cause. wow 2013. Really.

Kevin

Gross ……….I will never buy that again ! You should never ever mix races !and yes that's a race trading whore with a lazy fucking nigger !What happen to the white race ??????????????And if you don't like my comment you can suck my white power balls !fuck you black America !

SammyD

Funny, I don't see a bi-racial child. I see a child. We have a bi-racial President who identifies as Black but acts White. How about Solidad O'Brien who came on the scene on geek cable as a White nerd, the changed herself to being Black for Obama's first term to Latino during the sweeps for the Democratic vote. Nothing wrong with choosing who in your lineage that you are but just pick one already. It get's confusing. Of course, Diversity doctrine dictates that society should single out bi-racial people as a separate racial branch. So what is it please?

kite

Oh my goodness, never in my life I thought I would see a bunch comments from the so called adults on this blog that would make my skin crawl. This is 2013 RIGHT??? If only I could make a SYFY movie condeming all RACIST idiots who procreate and spew hatred throughtout the nation. IMO it would be the BLOCKBUSTER HIT OF THE WORLD!!!! Title: THE RACIST BASTARDS WHO DIED ON EARTH!!!!!

Blacprl

Karl Schneider it's obvious you are a racist asshole and for whoever had a problem with this commercial you people need to get over it obviously you don't have lives and anything else better to do then to complain about a Cheerios commercial I mean really get over it interracial relationships are on the rise get use to it are we not in the 21st century, bunch of scumbags and this is coming from a black woman whose boyfriend is italian now EAT THAT jerk offs!!!

Karl Schneider

I know I will never buy another box of cheerios. That fatass nigger laying on the couch confirmed it.

SW_Dad

This is controversial? Damn, people are bored.

jon

Could it be that the main actress of the commercial is bi racial so they had to use a biracial couple to keep it realistic…the little girl was most likely chosen based on her looks and acting ability so they had to go with what fits her image a biracial couple

Gaige

LOL! how was that Affensive? that was hilarious! haha….Also the lil' Girl is bi-racial one parent needs to be African American… I see nothen racist about this.. or anything else besides the box of cerial was opened when she grabbed it>.> the cerial will get all dry…

Chris

What I took from it was — with a child that young, daddy is probably tired of answering all her damn questions and just said, "Go ask your mother". haha

reallio

We are bombarded with images of black guys with white girls, why no "forward thinking" images of white guys with black girls???

Miss Jan

Why can't it just be a Cheerios commercial? Daughter wants dad to have a healthy heart. Does it really matter what color the parents are? I would think it shows forward thinking to include biracial parents in a commercial and I don't think it depicts anything about anything else. Depicting a parent resting on a couch is now politically incorrect? Really? 'Cause no man or woman or child ever lays down on a couch, ever, unless they are what? Lazy? Give me a break. I think the ad is cute and the little girl adorable. You could make dozens of the same commercial with dozens of combinations of ethnic parents. Who really cares at the end of the day? I sure don't. Now what? Boycott Cheerios? *smh*

Diddy

I'm British and surprised by the responses this article has got. I know many couples who are white with white, white with Asian, white with black, black with black, Asian with Asian (though curiously I don't know any black with Asian) and no-one I know has ever had a problem with this. My parents recently visited family in America and were surprised by the level of racism that still exists over there. With this article, to say the black is sleeping while the white is awake and alert would be the same as saying the man is sleeping while the woman is awake and alert. If it's racist, then surely it's also sexist.

tyron

The media is really trying to break the black comunity up. Seperating black men from black women, I don't care I will always love my black women and will educate my kids as well. Parents need to not let their kids look at t.v and surf the web for this reason. They are trying to make us date white women by pumping this in are heads. Their a white on YouTube promoting black women and white men to date. He also haves a video promoting Latino women and white men to date. This just sucking me that they are forceing this on are children minds. The same guy also have a video against travon Martin say ziggerman was not wrong. It seems every body is trying to mess up the black man's image or trying to lock us up. Black women please dont give up on us, we love yall and dont fall for the media statics as they are only playing number games. I see more white men with Asian women dating out their race, a man is a man regardless of race….the end!!!!

chris

I think it was great and wish my kids could see more mixed families on television:)

C

My response is specifically to the people posting racist and hurtful comments. At first I was shocked and dismayed by what I was reading. But I really did some hard thinking about this issue. You see I've been in interracial relationship for ten years, married for five and have a 6 mo old biracial child. So you can see how I might find some of these comments distrubing. But I came to a realization. Of course you can only spew your hateful, ludicrous theories online because your way of thinking is dying as evidenced by this commercial and its overwhelming support. So I'm not even going to name call, hurl insults, argue or try to reason. I'm not going to give you the time of day after I stop typing this response. You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to keep living, I'm going to keep loving and probably have more children. I'm going to move forward with the rest of America and while I am open to conversations on race I won't entertain these uneducated, baseless and hate filled rants. You're relegated to faceless attacks online and I get to live in the light. You can't voice your venom in any other forum because it won't be tolerated, so you hide in the shadows. I've decided I'm going to smile and when you see me holding my husband's hand, rocking my baby, and putting a box of cheerios in my grocery cart you'll know exactly why…won't you?

To the people who have overwhelming come out in support of this ad and to general mills, thank you for not letting these few hateful people stop us from living our lives. I'm mostly smiling because of people like you, we've come so far and they (the racist)are just upset. I mean it's a family, how could you have a problem with that?

IS WHAT IT IS

I have only one very important thing I want to say about this commercial or any types that may arise in the future:

AAAAWWWWWWWWWWWW!

John Merritt

Shaniqua, you have a black name. But why you dissing on the brothers.

John Merritt

If it were two queers, would you feel better.

joy

I think it's only an issue when people make it an issue. Who people choose to marry is no one elses business.the people in the commercial were just being a family, what's the big deal?

AlwaysRoomForModifications

Overall, the contraversy between the blacks and whites are still amongst us. Some, but not all blacks are unto the whites and their fabrication for genocide. Viewing interracial dating is vehemently disgusting for the most part concerning races that want to sustain and heed their cultures and pass it on to their next generation. Although, interracial is more accepted in contrast to previous years, it's still not widely accepted, due to the fact that the majority perceive interracial is a form of fascism, simply a concocted scheme generated by whites to eradicate blacks.

Natalia

Why is race-mixing so disgusting to some people? If they're good people and they love each other who the fuck cares. It's their choice. I am not of mixed race but when I was younger I remember I would always feel jelous that my friends were of mixed race because I always thought it was so cool when they could say 'oh im half this and quarter that…' personally I think its interesting to be of mixed race. You have rare appearances that vary from the same, boring blue eyes and blonde hair or certain facial structure, or brown eyes black hair and dark skin.

Chris

The reason that the media, movies, and the government, or if you will, the people who control us want to push the interracial agenda is simple. They want to breed the black out of the black man. Black people are worthless generally speaking. They're superior physically but inferior by far intellectually. Our government needs hard working tax payers. They merely are trying to get the most bang for their buck by getting the white trash whores to breed with the worthless black buck.

Maggy

Kim, I honestly did not notice the difference in race until it was made an issue. For many people mixed couples are so normal that we don't care about the race when watching something. In DR for instance, it's very common for different races/people with very different skin colors to have kids. With nearly everyone in my family being mixed skin tones this commercial is nothing new.

Kim

A couple of people on here said that they did not notice the difference in race until they saw it on the news. I say your full of it. I knew it as soon as I saw the little girl and the mother that the dad was black. I don't have a problem with this commercial. It's just a cereal ad with a cute little girl. It seems that it's white people that have a problem with it though.

Let's be real. 100-200 + years ago we had to hunt for our food. We had to spend our time gardening, hunting, fishing or whatever to further our existence. Now we don't. Our food through commercial agriculture is provided for us at local markets, and we have time to debate stupid crap like this. Or like congress spending how many wasted hours and dollars deciding that pizza was a vegetable.
We are simply de-evolving

jim

THIS COMMERCIAL GETS ME SICK,stick with your own kind…lets be real and say the truth , if time could be turned back knowing what we know today..all whites would have been like, no no please we dont want slaves….knowing we would have to pay for their govt cell phones and fill the prisons and provide for a useless race who as a whole has not done anything to better themselves .

How sad that in 2013 people still have issues over inter racial relationships. It appears that most of the negative comments I have read here are as a result of some kind of jealousy or worse lack of education. Everyone of you negatives need to take a well informed look at your own family trees, and no doubt you will ALL find people of color there. I am mixed race, my blood reflects my mixed ancestry as I carry a gene from the Jews and from Africa, I have a mutation on my blood which means I have 44% natural protection against malaria, how lucky am I. I have to laugh at idiots that think their race is superior to another, you are all the same, give or take a few mutations. I think to truly understand 'race' you need to research melanin. Melas (greek) means black. In humans Melanin deficiency is caused by a genetic abnormality this can result in such things as albinism and Leucism. Albinism is the lack of pigment whereas Leucism is a reduced pigment.

My problem is that the news media is trying to manipulate the public in to believing this is the norm and send a subliminal message that it is. We know it isn't. The percentages are so small yet they are trying to normalize it. There in lyes my resentment. My son just graduated from journalism at KU, I asked him about the interracial commercials I've been seeing. He said the media was doing a study to see how it would be received, so basically we are guinea pigs and being used in a test environment. This is what I resent. I should be free to form my own opinion without any outside influence. My personal beliefs about interracial relationships, are my business, not open for discussion. Don't try to paint me into a corner news media and try to portray me as a racist. I'm so much more than that!

Alana Dittrich

While I don't for a minute think that I am "colorblind," or that we are in a "post-racial" era, honestly, I hadn't even noticed that in this commercial, the girls parents were different colors until I saw on the news that many people were upset about this ad. It IS a cute ad, and all this $%#@ about sinister subtexts, conspiratorial messages, etc is just that – @#$%!
I agree with the sentiments expressed by someone on cafemom – who superimposed these words over the photo of the little girl in this ad: "All the problems in the world, and you're mad 'cause my parents don't match?" We do have serious problems in this world we need to be working together to solve, and people of differing skin color marrying each other is NOT one of them. People are free to marry whomever they choose, and their choice of spouse is none of anybody else's business!

Thomas

The ad is just one of thousands where the liberal media tries to brainwash white women to be with black guys. They act like a billion dollar unpaid pimp for black guys – why, I'm not sure, but the lib media hypes black guys all the time. As for the "cute" crap about the interracial child, that is another staple of lib media propaganda, designed to encourage white women to have black babies.

matt w from southern illinois

Well…. as I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT agree with interracial relationships…. its people like YOU who jus stir the proverbial pot and won't let such a deep wound start the healing process. So….. as lightly as I care to put it…. SHUT THE HELL UP!!!!!!
thanks yours truly, matt w from southern Illinois.

Joe Edwards

I thought the commercial was cute. They are a bi-racial couple, so what? I simply don't understand why people would have a problem with this commercial.

lisa sasyet

i dont have a problem with it at least they r keeping it real. i hate when they have a lil mixed girl on screen with 2 black parents which is unrealistic. black men hate themselves and their women just keep it real

Tani

I notice that most of the negative comments here come from men. WOW!! How predictable

George

Fuck nigger loving corporations…but, at least they got the nigger right this time. On the couch, sleeping/slumming, not doing shit. TNB.

k.d

Pls some black people just want to be so sensitive about everything personally I saw that commercial and I thought it was the cutest thing ever I thought it focused more on the love that little girls have for their dads so she's trying to keep him healthy and besides I think it it was fitting to have a black man up there since its a known fact that we as black people. Have bp and heart problems.

Tyler

The obvious issue is that people are too insensitive. Hating someone based on race is okay. There is such a thing as an educated racist. And racist aren't always idiot. There isn't anything wrong with this commercial except black people want to bitch and white people don't want to seem racist. Seriously, whitey has better things to do than focus on "discriminating" you. Truly, the idiots are the people who decide they are right for not being racist or being so. Carry your beliefs silently. Being racist isn't a big deal, and not being one doesn't make you better than anyone else.

Maybe he just got home from work and wanted to nap….maybe it's the weekend and he just finished yard work and wanted to nap….maybe he was sick (maybe why the daughter wanted him to be healthy?) and wanted to nap….long story short he could have a very successful career and in this instance he wasas just napping…..

Barbara Simpon

The commercial is OK. To gripe and blame others is not OK.

IShdWrk4Cnn

Its 2013. If people are not down with the swirl, they are racists and idiots. White or Black.

Brotha Cracka

It is unfortunate that there are a few bad yard-ape bucks and sows that have to destroy it for all the black people. Personally I have mixes emotions on this commercial. Fist off they are portraying the buck as a yard-ape just laying on the davenport doing nuffin while the white lady is getting ready to go to work, but if you read close in to the commercial, you can see he is not a true yard-ape because the first thing you would have seen when the girl walked into the room was the buck holding on to his freshly baby oiled muh dik, a water bong on the coffee table and blankets on the windows to keep out the day light. Also he would have woke up startled saying "Ah din do nuffins!!!” while the little girl was dumping cheerios on the buck. On the other hand I have to admit that I have met some very sweet and kind black people, especially of the female race, so maybe next time the should consider making it a white man with a black woman, that would be more family orientated I guess. Besides, why was the black guy even portrayed as being a live in sperm donor if he was really a bad guy? I mean if he was a true yard-ape, he would have been out breeding a different sow overnight and just waking up at her nest. Now wait a minute, how do we even know if that was the white lady’s husband or the sperm donor of that little girl? Maybe the white lady picked him up at the club and he was only there for breeding purposes? So many unanswered questions to worry about. I use to like cheerios but until this major controversy is settled, I think I'll be switching to Farmville brand from Aldi's. Not to mention that is a third the cost.

On a more brighter note, has anyone else noticed that gas is going up again? The economy is crumbling. Unemployment is on the rise and woo hoo for the great job of Gov. Mr Walker from Wisconsin has done by busting up the unions. Now we can all go to work at our $20 jobs which have been restructured for us to do double the work and to take a wonderful pay cut to $7.25 an hour. Ain't life just grand?

But back to more important things like….oh crap, what was the question? Oh yeah, can both black people and white people eat cheerios under the same roof?

MLRS

Of course I don't have a problem with the commercial; people are going to be with the folks who attract them. Live and let live.

However…

Personally, as a white guy with a couple of graduate degrees and a good career in Indianapolis, I don't date outside of my race, and I don't date white women who have ever dated outside of my race. Unfortunately women don't think their past is 'any of our business', despite the fact that so many of them want us to invest in long term relationships.

Protip: never ever bring up number of sexual partners or their race until about week eight.. don't even hint at it, otherwise they'll have a prefabricated answer at the ready. Take them to the local wine bistro on a Friday evening, buy them a couple of flights of whatever they like, then pop both questions in a non-threatening way. If they're right handed and their eyes move to the right, they're lying.. flip that for lefties.

Liam

People (Black and White) need to get the hell over creating drama over interracial dating/relationships/marriage etc… There is nothing you can do to stop it and it fears you, that is why people are creating such a big stir up over this. You are looking at the present and future. Funny thing is though there has been interracial relationships since time immemorial. Its amazing how backward this country is in terms of treating each other with common respect, when will we get it together as Americans and as the human race. Everyone is entitled to their personal opinions but don't go invoking hatred on others just because you see something you don't agree with. If you hate interracial relationships/families, good for you, have your cookie and be gone, you are a dying breed and it is your own fault. I hope in 50 years people aren't as stupid as you racists out there, black and white.

W..T..F

WOW! I Have never read a collective of comments that are so ignorant, and blind-sided in nature. I'm used to the occasional troll, or at least every other other comment on an internet article sounding crazy, but it seems like just about everybody in this comment section is GODDAMN NUTS! Does nobody else realize how ridiculous you all sound? The over-analyzation of the purpose of the characters being an interracial couple, the laziness of the black man, the superiority the child has over her sleeping father because she just happens to be awake while he's taking a nap! WHAT THE HELLLLLL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? The man in the commercial doesn't become lazy black man unless YOU make him out to be, he's just like any other dude: black, white, purple, or yellow, who's tired and knocks out on the couch. I sure do hope that if he was white you would've been calling him "lazy white man," cause if not, that just shows how subconsciously racist you happen to be, obviously, without even noticing it. And PLEASE, save your dignity, black men/women and white men/women on here complaining about the interracial couples. NO RACE, I repeat NO RACE is secretly plotting to go out in to the world and "steal you women and men." Please note that the people involved in interracial relationships were not "stolen," they simply opened their eyes to the possibility of love interests outside of their own race, which should not even be a surprising notion anymore in 2013, hell, not even in 2003.

I think it's disgusting. I will no longer buy General Mills products because of this pure garbage.

Ken

Birds of a feather no longer flock together. Hey maybe gorillas will start interacially fornicating with giraffes. Should i go on? Killer bees mingling with honey bees? Etc….

Sofia

1st off Henry I feel sorry for you. Work it out with your granddaughter. it's happened!
Next ,thank you everyone for the good laugh! It's only a fucking cereal ad!! Your bringing all this hate back. The world is never going to change never. If U don't like a certain race & only like your own, then live that way & be quiet. Let everyone do what they want. But I will say the actors don't even pull it off for real life. They do not look like they would go together. It does not look real. It looks fake. Cherrios could of put together a better set of actors . But all in all who the hell cares!! If a black really wants a white so what! And if a white wants a black so what! Who wants to waste cereal though & who wants to be fed animal grain feed!!! There's a hundred kinds of cereal try frosted flakes or lucky charms!!! Maybe cinnamon toast crunch!!! I SEE THE AD IS STILL RUNNING !!!!

Jenna

This was a pretty cheesy commercial, but despite that there is no actual problem. If you look at any situation, commercial, book, speech, etc that involves race you CAN find some sort of problem if you twist it different ways but everyone needs to get over it.

The black husband isn't even portrayed as a " lazy black guy". HE'S A GUY. My father has been lounging around snoring his brains out randomly on the sofa since the day I was born. Besides how would they have gotten that joke a crossed if he was awake? They couldn't have. Hes only going to be a lazy black guy if people decide he is.

tara

Funny how the media NEVER advertises the huge numbers of white men with asian women – NEVER. This is not true multiracialism that's being pushed through media. It is truly agenda-driven, to destroy black relationships, black family, promote white women as superior to black women, and create biracial buffer groups. period.

Joe Hacket

Yeah I have a problem with it! I'm sick of being force fed blackness on me. Most blacks are NOT like this. What's with this force fed black people on everybody bit in the media. I'm sick of it. A black guy is not going to be with a hot white chick unless he's a rapper or athlete. All of you know it. What about the other races? Why not an asian guy with a white chick or a hispanic guy or a middle eastern guy? Why is it always black guys, it's not even black women with white guys or whoever. It seems to be this force fed black man is everywhere bit. Most black people are ghetto. They are not pleasant to deal with and here you are the media suggesting blacks are docile friendly people. Just not true. It's a cereal commercial. That doesn't mean they can suggest the abstract as trendy or surreal. Black people are 13% of the population and 90% of all problems in society and yet they are all over the place like they are white. Where's the fair representation of america. Where are all the other people? Asians, hispanics, latinos, gays, middle easterners etc. What's with this white guilt force a fake presentation of a black person. We all know how the majority of black people are. And they are not like this.

That Guy

All you people complaining about the race thing are all fucking stupid for GODS SAKE IT IS FUCKING CEREAL GET IT FUCKING CEREAL FUCKING SOCIETY WORRY ABOUT GODDAMN CEREAL AD NO WONDER THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING OVER CAUSE PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT AN AD ABOUT CEREAL THE GOVERNMENT CAN TAKE YOUR THING WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION AND ALL YOU WORRY ABOUT IS FUCKING CEREAL. WTF

Rod Blasingame

Nothing personal against black folks, everybody should own a few of them.

Rod Blasingame

Who cares? Its a free country and if some dumbass white woman wants to be tied to Mandingo for the rest of her days, I say let her. We all know that there are some real slutz out there that just have to try that two foot coke can Mandingo schlong, but once they do its over for them with white men.

Joyce

How this bratty kid dares to waste perfectly good cereal?!

unapologetic

Mostly everybody has made some valid points regardless of how ignorant or dumb they sound to the next person but what kills me about the whole interracial dating is why in most cases the white woman want to sound or act like a black woman??? That's the ignorant part to me if he wanted a black woman he would have gotten one to begin with be yourself and stop being fake. You can never be black just because you try to talk a different way or change up your hair you are still white. Be true to yourself and black men need to date white women because that's what they want not because their friends are doing it or seen it in a music video or in some lyrics. The world is so damn plastic now its crazy smdh!!!

Bi-racial or tri-racial and multi-race unions(look at obama and tiger) are here to stay whether some people like it or not. The problem I have with the commercial is the same thing as people that are homosexual,and that is, obama,the media,big corporations such as home depot along with the homosexuals themselves just keep shoving it down everyone's throat so the more this is done, the more those that oppose these issues will resent and hate homosexuals and bi-racial unions all the more, so just please stop shoving acceptence down everyone's throat and allow things to take it's course then possibly those that oppose these issues will more readilly accept them. According to a recent news article of which states that by the year 2040 the mexican population will by far exceed the white and black populations as well as every other group that lives in America. The obama Administration is hell bent on giving 11 million mexican illegals total amnasty in this country so just think our Forfathers purchased land from the Mexicans and still Americans fought,died, and the wounded shed their blood to keep the land in the Union. Texas as well as the other land that have been a great part and valuable asset to America is now being freely handed back over to the mexicans, that will in just a few years will become the most populas people in this country. How much and how often will our NATIVE AMERICANS have to stand aside and watch THEIR HOMELAND continue to be taken over by outsiders? From where I stand it appears to me that LIVES(WAR),MONEY(TAXES),PROPERTY(AMERICA),is continually taken by the obama Administration and handed over too others that just want a handout and this people will be AMERICA'S DOWNFALL. God have mercy on us all!

Marym

Hey people lets be realistic in this country and through out the world interracial people are a fact of life there is nothing new under the sun what's going on now has always gone on ie the slave women had to endure what their white owner wanted to do to them sexually when ever he wanted to even if he had a wife who also had to put up with his actions so now people get together cause they want to I'm biracial btw

Brittany

I don't see anything wrong with this commercial. I think everyone is focusing on race and missing the point. I actually thought it was cute, but I guess most people didn't actually listen to the words.

yikes.

Some of the reactions I'm reading here are a good illustration of why it's pointless to hope for world peace. Hate and rage are here to stay.

Yasmin

You are right! They shouldn't make the black male look lazy on a sofa. (Sofa not couch!!!)
He does look like a big fat lazy man. They should of at least showed a better character. The
so called family doesn't even fit together. They could of chosen people that could look believable.
At least!!! They look too phoney!! They didn't even choose a child that could resemble the mother!!!

Ashley

first of all, like all other conspiracy theories, this short scene is somehow, through selected connectable, infinite possible scenarios, related to a "lazy African American Male". How is this short commercial supposedly reinforces the idea of the Stereotypical African American male? Well lets see some other reasons why he is portrayed as lazy. maybe its a weekend and he doesnt have to work. maybe hes on the couch, simply because he can be. what if it was an all Caucasian family…what would be the underlying meaning of the commercial after everyone drew a conclusion which they call critical thinking. please… Lets be real.

"IT IS SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE. IT IS SAYING THAT IT IS OK. IT IS NOT"

Lerro DeHezal

I never liked Cheerios; they give one the impression of eating some kind of "Feed Store Meal" or "Milled Feed" or some such . . . Like that a Goat, Horse, or Rabbit might eat; or even a Pen of Fryers (Chicken); being fattened for slaughter, KFC-Style . . . Other than that they kind of taste of toasted sawdust. The manufacturers are stuck with a product that they can't sell. So, of course, they are going to have to attempt to cater to freaks and misfits. So what?

Yasmin

Why is it a plain Jane white woman who appears to be smart, has a good job,speaks well married a man who appears to be fat, lazy, speaks slang,(you can tell when he called Kim). Where the heck would she meet him ??? And the girl has the appearance of being raised by a black mother. And the child talks with a voice that seems a like a black mother raised. The pic looks wrong. No white that looks that way would marry him come on cherrios!!! trying to make a fake "this is real family"

your face

One word. Niggers

Saffron

Ready for a nap ?? He should of just got up !???

Juneau

I think they should show a strong white couple or black couple with a family. Like the Goya commercial does. Why is the dad on the sofa in the AM at breakfast time/ cereal time? He should be ready to go to work & the girl ready for school. The mom just began eating ? Alone?? Don't they eat together ??? What did the kid eat ??The mom is eating Cheerios what did the dad eat??? Maybe he had better start eating them. Guess he dosen't. Dosen't look like a good husband to me . Lazy in any race !

Tyrone

The half-breed crowd is so phony to me. Real black people need not waste time with a bunch of frauds who use the black race to get over. I don't like the mulatto crowd. Insecure black men and women diluting their race to gain acceptance from other races.

Alexia-Joi

Maybe the fact that I'm only 13 makes me pre-dispositioned to be open and excepting, but really the ignorant and bigoted reaction this commericial is getting is all together ridiculous. It's cereal, just cereal. I'm also bi-racial, I'm black and cuban. Seriously this family is beautiful, the girl is adorable, and all the bigots can print out all their racist comments and stick them straight to their asses.

KAILA

Love the cereal commercial, but skin color shouldn't matter. Multiracial relationships are beautiful.

kristins

I love this I wish I could be in a commercial im 11

Humanbeing

Haha this is insane :') Can all of you crazy people relax for second and realize that this is an ad for freaking cereal like seriously wow..

Matt

Black people have pulled the boohoo race card so much, no one takes them seriously anymore. Honestly, it has gotten to the point of absurdity. Black people raise their kids to believe there is some universal conspiracy against blacks. Seriously, people don't care that you're black, and they don't care that I'm not black.

Tina

I'm so happy to finally see commercials with mixed families. Its beautiful.

pam

OK people this is crazy. I mean all of this hoopla over a beautiful, loving family is nuts. To all of the racists out there. Here it is. People of color live in this world. There are more of us than there are of you. There are many intelligent people out there that wouldn't give a rat's ass about what color someone is. By the way, in case you are not aware of this, white people you are white, you are pink and a hundred varying colors of everything. I have seen you ranging from ghostly white to brown. On a day at the beach you are often red if you forget you sun screen.
Archeologists have determined that the human species originated in Africa. Hmm scary thought pink, yellow, red, tan green, purple, polka dotted and anyone else who is racist. You will have racists in every culture and within every race through out this world. It is a sad truth.
All of this insanity affects all of us who are part of multi-racial. Has anyone noticed that pinks and Afro-Americans are not the only mixing races in America? Yes it is true. We have Asians, Hispanics, Mexicans, Native Americans Europeans and only God knows how many mixtures they have made by inter mixing. Why aren't these people in the lime light?
I have a question for everyone. Has anyone thought about what kind of affect that all of this BS might have on the little girl in the Cheerios commercial? Hmm…I didn't think so.

Brian Thrasher St.

I Don't see anything wrong with a mix couple raising a child.Thank God both parents are present,I prefer to see male and female instead of both with the same gender.

JJ74

I think this ad is horrible. Keep whites with whites and blacks with blacks….i think this commercial should be taken off the air. Cherrios RUNIED a good brand. I will not buy any Cherrio brand cereal now.

Lena

I come from a multi-racial family. My mother being half white and half black, while my father is half black and half native. I found this commercial to be incredibly cute. If people are seriously looking at this, and thinking the father sleeping, with barely any lines is a sign of "the progressive march of white people" then I'm assuming that they're trying to find some sort of racist sign in this commercial, and that's really tragic because mixed and multi-racial families are never represented in the media, and they need to.

laura

My black father and white mother will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in August. Imagine their courage — marrying in 1963 in Boston (a pretty notorious hotbed of racism at the time). My dad is an 81-year-old retired doctor and a Korean War vet. My mother stayed home with me and my three brothers and helped my father out in the office when she could. Together, they put us through very competitive private schools and universities. As far as I'm concerned, aside from the obvious race difference, we were a very traditional Catholic family. I do remember feeling crushed when people stared at us in restaurants but I held my head high anyway. Worse, the cops pulled us over on a regular basis. I recall their aggressive tones and angry glares, none of them ever considering that the backseat carried four very frightened young children. Somehow, we all survived and thrived. I too became a doctor. My three brothers all followed my father into military service and then went on to have successful careers in business. It makes me physically ill that all these years later a family a lot like mine is still the object of the hatred of ignorant people. How many of your non-mixed and therefore superior marriages will last fifty years? All I know is that my parents taught us good values, that they modeled scrupulous honesty and that they showed us strength and dignity in the face of very tough odds. Why does this scare some of you so much?

SomeGuy

I don't have a problem with whites and blacks coupling. The true fact of the matter is though that most white guys don't want anything to do with women who are "into the brothers." It's probably worse in the South where I live, but it's still a fact of life just about everywhere and I've lived all over the country and in Europe. Even white guys who are not racist, guys with good friends who are black, are likely to see a girl who has dated black guys as damaged goods. They won't admit it to you probably, because everybody wants to be politically correct, but with the guys they'll talk about a girl and say things like, "She wouldn't want you. She's into the brothas. She wouldn't even feel you."

Maybe that's it. Maybe it's a one of those penis insecurity things. Most white guys tend to think that black guys are all hung like donkeys. That, and black guys can dance, have that swagger, talk that talk, and white guys just come across as idiots when they try to copy all that. "If that's what she likes, she won't be satisfied with me." The wife of a friend of mine had an affair with a black guy and ended up leaving him. He said she might as well have been a lesbian because he couldn't be a black guy anymore than he could be a woman. He struggled with whether he should try to win her back, but the fact that the guy was black sealed the deal for him. He felt like that if she wanted something so different from him he didn't stand a chance, and even if he did succeed he'd always be worried that secretly she wished she was with a black guy.

It's certainly not all racism, but whatever is behind it, it's a true fact that most white guys won't date women who have dated black men, even guys in their twenties and certainly older white men. Maybe that's changing some, but not nearly as much as many would think. I'm in the same boat, I hate to admit. I don't think there is a thing wrong with interracial relationships. I think there are some really great guys who happen to be black, smart guys, decent human beings. But, I don't date girls who are into the brothers either. I'm as white as they come. I can't dance very well. I don't do the swagger thing. I don't try to sound cool. I'm not tiny by any means but I'm not hung like a porn star. I like girls who are into guys like me, and there are plenty of them that I can choose from. I probably would not date a girl that I know has been with black men. Maybe if she was really special, but in the back of my mind I think I'd worry that she really wants something else and is maybe just with me because I have a fancy job and make lots of money.

Renee

There is only one race on this planet and that is the human race. There is no such thing as "race mixing". We need to grow up and grow out of our fears. Why can't the black father be asleep on the sofa? Isn't that something that all people do? I am glad Cheerio decided not to pull the ad. We need to get over ourselves and enlist a world that this child would be proud to live in. How do you think she feels and will be affected by the negativity? I pray her parents are shielding her from the madness. People are attracted to people no matter the color of their skin. STOP IT! We need unity in the community not all this stupid hatred. Where are we headed with attitudes like these? I pray that the next generation changes the mindsets that we see today for the positive. SMH

Angel

It is such a shame that this beautiful & sweet commercial is causing such controversy in this day & age….It is disgusting. The commercial showing the beautiful little girl lovingly talking to her mom then seeing all the cheerios on her dad's heart is so very touching…Please don't let these racist bastards effect your marketing by taking this ad off television…It shows so many of todays real life families…Thank you for your nerve & guts to put that on the air…Love it!!!!

Person

White racists are the obvious ones to always have problems with any splash of color in their lives, but what's most infuriating is how black people are always butthurt whenever mixed people get any limelight AS MIXED PEOPLE (they don't seem to have as much of a problem with mixed people being one-dropped into blackness–crabs in a barrel). And black women are the saddest of all, getting mad at this commercial but wishing and dreaming of a commercial where the races of the parents are reversed—PATHETIC!

Elvis

Just read a few posts here. White men are not attracted to black women its that simple and white men are generally smarter then white women and can not be marketed as easily and have children so they are the ones you want to convince. You will not see any men reading Fifty Shades of Grey..unless he is gay. You don't see men reading crap romance novels. I have traveled the world and it is well know in all countries that the white women is the whore of the world and will sleep with any race. This commercial was made for a reason and is typical of most black men /white women relationships. The women is the bread winner…she is always driving the car while the black man sits back and does nothing. I would like to see some demographic research on that, I am sure it is a true statement. Also this is a now a generation that has grown up on pron at the touch of a button. Black on white pron is the biggest seller out there and is mostly bought by white women. They love it!

ELvis

The media is continually jamming white women black men relationships down our throats as it is the norm in life. Just look at every clothing flyer advertisement in your papers..always featuring a white little girl with a black little boy. Never the other way around. White girls are being marketed to date and sleep with black men. It has been going on for the past 10-20 years and has taken effect. Why do you see so few white boys and men dating black women. It is because white women are weak and can easily be bought is why. This is a movement to eliminate the white race in this country and through-out the world. They are mostly all democratic and progressives. It is a attack on white America. If you can't beat them bread them out…start with getting the stupid white women to sleep with the black men. Just stating the facts here. If you can't see it you are blind.

Qstorm

I am so tired of all this non-troversial bullsh*t. Doesn't matter how we're portrayed, someone is going to complain. Someone else posted a response talking about how black folks apparently can only be depicted in a narrow spectrum and that person nailed it on the head.

We always talk about how we "still got a ways to go" to reach true equality, but when steps are taken to reach that goal, we complain. Mary gets flak singing about a chicken wrap, but it's OK for Steven Tyler. A black man glances at a clearly attractive white woman on a park bench (during the Superbowl) and we lose our minds. Here we have an interracial couple who are apparently well-heeled, successful and raising an intelligent child…and it just so happens that the dad is asleep on the couch. This has NOTHING to do with his color, it has more to do with a trend in advertising (and media as a whole) over the last decade where the male in a relationship is always depicted as either stupid, unaware, or immature. And by those standards, this commercial is still tame. Watching this, all I see is a biracial child telling her mother that Dad said Cheerios are good for your heart (debatable), the mother concurs and the girl smiles because she "helped" her daddy by pouring Cheerios on his heart. The irony of all this is that most likely, the agency that produced this spot was comprised mostly of white people; juxtapose this spot with a spot conceived by one of our OWN that has us black males all depicted as thugs in a LINEUP next to a GOAT (surprised it wasn't a chimp–hey, why limit the self-hatred?) and a white woman who's been assaulted and is too scared to ID the perpetrator. Examine the racial dynamics between the two spots for a minute: black man asleep in nice home on nice couch while white wife talks to daughter versus four black thugs and a goat in a police lineup threatening a white female victim…um, wow, and we're complaining about Cheerios???!!!! Maybe we should reserve our righteous indignation for when it's truly warranted, so that we all don't end up looking silly altogether.

First, we all have seen or know a biracial couple, so when it's put on TV everyone has a problem? We get all caught up with politics when it's just a commercial advertising cereal. At the end of the day it's not stereotyping any races or causing a big politic problem. It's just a damn commercial!

This world is full of idiots. So very very sad.

So Black people can't be seen asleep on camera now either?!

Let's go down the checklist

Black actors only be seen playing Doctors, Lawyers, successful Businessmen unless its a Tyler Perry movie and you can be a Preacher, or a Blue collar worker, you can also play a successful Businessman or Lawyer in a TP Joint (but you must be either a woman beater or a cheater, bonus points for both)

Black people can't be in interracial relationships on screen (unless that interracial relationship comes as a result of a breakup or divorce from your Black partner first.)

Black people can't play controversial or diverse characters i.e. gay (unless they are stereotypically gay) Although Black actors can be seen wearing dresses and imitating women on film if it's a comedy.

Black people can't be subversive or play the antihero or create entertainment that pushes boundaries i.e. Tyler The Creator or else said entertainment will be deemed to be promoting racist imagery by the NAACP.

Is that pretty much it?

DING! DING! DING!… This may not be UniverSoul Circus, but it is Shadow & Act, a place in which Sergio frequently serves as its ringmaster. Hey, don't take that wrong, he's just doing his job.

Granted, he race-baits (sometimes). He gossips (sometimes). And, he has been known to be the court jester (sometimes he's not funny *smile*). However, none of the above defines his presence at S&A.

But, unfortunately, as with the audience of any circus ( i.e., Ringling Bros, Cirque du Soleil, UniverSoul Circus, Shadow and Act, The Great American Royal Circus, etc.) each audience member focuses on that which stirs the most emotions in them. Some can't wait to see the clowns and the midgets doing battle. Some are thrilled by the breath taking feats of the high-wire acts. Yet others laugh out loud at the sight of poo-poo leaving an elephant's rusty behind. But in this neighborhood of a circus, Sergio does it all… and I, personally… ain't mad at him.

In reference to this post, coming through the door he told us he was up to no good, so what did some folks miss, or what was they "really" looking for?

EVERTHING IS POLITICAL!

Please wake up! Everything put out for consumption by your eyes, ears, mind, etc. is political. If it wasn't trying to put forth the agenda of the split of the Black family and that Black men need to be with white women….they would have used a Black family. You don't see any commercials on the idiot box with a white man and his Black wife, do you? You know why? Because that would promote the idea that white men are openly (now) attracted to Black women and want to make them their wives. And that would mean the destruction of the white family.

Geneva Girl

This scenario could have happened in our home. My daughter often starts her questions, "Daddy says…" My husband is frequently asleep on the sofa every weekend. I, however, would have corrected my child's grammar (because I'm like that), "Yes, Cheerioes ARE good …" She would also had to get the broom and the dust bin to clean up that mess.

It's a cute commercial, but much ado about nothing.

west

I think that people are missing the point in the commercial. If you set the color issue aside for a moment, you will see that the little girl was trying to keep her father healthy. Cheerios are heart healthy and she poured them on his heart. No prank intended. It's about time that commercials begin recognizing mixed families.

ALM

I saw this commercial for the first time a couple of days ago, and I though the commercial was too cute. The little girl reminds me of a young Raven Simone.

Gregory Ford

I thought I'd die. It was stupid heart warming. Actually reminded me of that moment in "Crash" when the little girl in the jacket her daddy told her was magic jumped into her father's arms to save him from the bullets.

What does an "obviously bi-racial child" exactly look like? Right now I am more offended by the prejudice expressed in those three words. Isn't this turning white prejudices onto ourselves. So many different shades of skin from dark to very light (and the light not needing a white parent etc.), various hair textures, eye colors and on and on. How exactly does one tell who has a white parent and who doesn't have a white parent?

PhredG

I picked-up on the bi-racial angle from the jump. If dad had turned-out NOT to be black I woulda been wondering "Was she ADOPTED or what?". I had a "Couldn't find a sistah huh!" moment but, like the song says "Everybody needs somebody…" so more power to 'em. Some people try to make a mountain out of a molehill. If there's a NIT, they'll PICK IT! Wondering what the casting call was like for the daughter role.

Que Sera

I would argue that the kid's sneaky smile indicated that she planned to use her mother's words as an alibi in her plot to dump a pile of cereal on her father. Many times, adults don't realize the social intelligence of children. Kids- especially minority kids- realize the problems their parents face. Wouldn't a child who is intelligent enough to utilize the "ask the other parent" gig as an alibi for a prank also be intelligent enough to notice, for example, the quiet ways in which her neighbors view her parents ? Perhaps this commercial simply highlights the creative will of children to build, against the vile disturbance of prejudice, a nice joke that will make her parents secretly smile? Kids are born into this world with their own assumptions.. assumptions of which we all now write of in the need to develop. Kahlil Gibran writes in "The Prophet" that the soul is a battlefield between reason and passion… to feel disturbance at this commercial is a legitimate experience. But to place children into the battlefield is to proscribe them as gladiators to battle others in a battlefield not of their own

eh

I loved this commercial!! How is it even a problem?!

The commercial OPENS with "… DAD told me that Cheerios are good for the heart…". So CLEARLY DAD is very active in his daughter life and was simply taking a nap!!

Some need to have SEVERAL SEATS!!! _ _ _

robot ninja

0:14 lol. Kids become intelligent, conniving deviltrists long before they stop being cute.

The bugs bunny punchline can be missed by those wishing for social battle. Towards the question of humor, the differences in perception between children and adults watching the commercial is indicative of my opinions on the role of race in the heirarchy of the generation gap…

The telepathic Opera

Damn can a brother take a damn nap!!!
I think the commercial is awesome.

Sergio,
I have been reading this blog for a while. I think this is the first time I have come across a post like this. Usually, if there is a post about race relations, its handled with more class. And there is actually a good reason for posting it. Your post, however, is race-bating. Its akin to the posts on the sites Bossip/MediaTakeOut. You are disgusting. Perhaps, you should work for them.

Furthermore, your response of "Hey, who’s going to argue with that?" in reference to "Only time you see a black man at peace is when he's with a white woman" is even more sickening. My parents have been happily married for over 35 years.

I came to this country at 8 years old. What did I walk into? Black women this, black women that. Now all these negative stereotypes are applied to me as well as a young black woman. It makes me sick when black men say all these things to spite black women then ask "why are black women mad?". If you don't like black women, then find someone who will make you happy. I don't get the constant attack on black women. Move on, and keep black women out of your mouth. Furthermore, based on the ridiculously high divorce rates among black men and white women (usually filed by white women), its obvious who the problem is.

I don't see black women running around commenting that black men are all murders, wife beaters, rapist, and oversexed criminals. I could go on with the stereotypes, btw, but I won't. But if we did, I'm sure you black men wouldn't be pleased. So stop with the stereotypes. It seems to me that every chance a black man gets to bash black women, they never miss a beat. Wish they put that amount of effort in being fathers to their kids or putting on a condom. Oops, there I got bringing up other negative stereotypes.

Anyway, it is obvious that as a community, we are doomed.

As for the commercial, there is nothing wrong with it, I'm even surprise there is not more of them on television.

Signed,

Sick of Black Men

He does have a line, he calls someone named Jan. Whether that's the wife or the daughter's unclear. It is interesting that you usually see a white man with a black woman and here you have a black man with a white woman. The best you can say is that it's rather more progressive or maybe even enlightened than these things usually are.

jasmine

This is great! I seriously didn't think I would see this for years! You always see black couples, white couples, and I believe I saw a progressive commercial with a white man and asian woman. Way to go General Mills!

Zaidi

That's the problem with America. We see race in everything, but not in our hearts and minds.

Sehar

Children often verify things with both parents. Cute commercial. Anyone with a problem with this one will always have a problem. If Dad had been working they would say "the Black man always works hard for white women".

C'mon Man!

People need stuff to be mad about. Being against something instead being for/doing something is status quo. Sad really.

Anthony Cottman

I have seen the commercial and thought it was award worthy. The little girl is a fine actress. I do question however, why you stated in your article that she was obviously bi-racial? Please let me know via e-mail.

D.A.

The only reason people don't like this commercial is because they are threatened by it. Nothing more, nothing less. For racist white people, the 'Nigger' done impregnated my daughter and the world is about to end, for racist black people, this 'white woman' done took one of our men and the world is about to end. You can't please everyone especially when you go to any public place and see more and more interracial couples. There never was a problem with this, but guess what??? our history shows that there was a time when this was illegal for quite a period of time (which is why I have no issue with Homosexuality, the same proponents for it's illegality are using the exact same language and course of action). So even though this is a reality allover the country, there are still those who grew up in a time where it wasn't. And the freaky part about it is, they believe it like a religious fervor unlike anything else all the while telling people "I'm not racist".

Jug

Okay. If you're offended by this commercial, You're Stupid. Period. Next, you probably don't live in an area where cute, sweet commercials like this with Black families are commonplace (sometimes so many its shocking)-like L.A. or New York. Sorry for you. And to end it, more and more commercials are reflecting the world we live in, not the one in your head. Many Many Many mixed race couples out there with those oh so pretty light skinned kids folks love so much. Folks need to relax and get over themselves. Carry On LOL

etomi

It's a cute commercial, but what is insidious to me is the fact that she needs her mother to verify something her father told her. It seems like the child holds her own father suspect when it comes to veracity. That is what pissed me off. I don't remember my kids ever doing that; they might have played us against one another — but that was an "equality" game they used when they wanted something. This commercial intimates that the Caucasian mother holds the power of truth over the African American father. [What I do like is the the child uses the knowledge gained to shower her dad with heart protecting Cheerios to keep him healthy and alive.] Still, the messages from this video are a bit disturbing.

looknaroun

I think you are reading too much into it. This is a correct picture of our world today. Interracial couple. Normal looking family. My dad fell asleep on the sofa while watching tv all the time. And he was a hard working man. I've seen this in many commercials where the Dad is white. Cute commercial. If you want to take issue with something, it should be the McDonsld's commercials. Are we the only people that eat at McDonald's anymore?

The Curvy Socialite

Shocking to some, i don't see anything wrong with this commercial. As a Black woman (who both parents are multi-racial), this is just a reflection of a facet of society. There are bi-racial and multi-racial children all over the place and why can't there be an ad on tv that reflects that. Why can't the 3 people featured just be an All American family? The whole taming of a Black man thing is just over the top and there are always going to be people on both sides of the spectrum who find fault in everything. Why can't people be happy they featured a cute kid in the commercial period?

SirSniffy

I don't find it offensive at all, it was actually kind of cute. The actual 'trope' used was the 'Dumb Dad' or the 'Clueless Dad' that is used just about everywhere. Daddies are always the lovable buffoons napping or resting while mommy is always busy.

ScriptTease

LORD have mercy, I tell ya!

FactChecker

Sergio, Is that Richard T. Jones as the dad? It looks like him, but also looks a little like character actor Gregory T. Alan. … Loved Richard T. Jones in "Judging Amy," all those years ago. Great actor!

Africameleon

What? This is one of the cutest commercials I've seen in a while. The couple did not appear together in the scene but since that happens with same race couples, then it's also a non-issue. It was cute, period.

And in closing….. "Temptations, Forever!"

Ted

If you are outraged by this, you are dumb. The dad isn't portrayed as lazy or a bad father. He's not even portrayed as the archetypical absent-minded father. He's portrayed as a guy taking a nap. As far as this arguing white women tame black men, this isn't really plausible. It's not an established cultural narrative that white women tame black men's worse impulses – if there exists any narrative it's the exact opposite. There is a long historical narrative that white women brought out aggressive, unresistable sexual impulses in black men (see, for example, Lisa Dorr's excellent "White Women, Rape, and the Power of Race in Virigina") and this was allegedly why black men were so likely to rape white women. I know of no narrative that suggest white women tame black men. If this were a common cultural narrative, I could see reasons to be upset, but it's not. It's just a biracial couple with a cute kid talking about the heart healthiness of Cheerios!
