You’re Not Going To Have A Problem With This New Cheerios Commecial Are You?

You're Not Going To Have A Problem With This New Cheerios Commecial Are You?

UH OH! They’re back!

America’s favorite interracial family from that controversial
Cheerios commercial last spring is back in a new
spot for the cereal, which will make its broadcast premiere on this Sunday’s Super Bowl football game. The first
time that Cheerios has ever had a commercial shown during the event.

As you will recall back in May, I wrote a piece (HERE) about
the first Cheerios commercial, which was already generating a lot
of talk at the time of the post. The piece drew literally hundreds of comments. Most were
favorable, but others weren’t too thrilled, to put it very mildly.

However one commenter who called himself Castigator stood
out by saying that the commercial really bothered him because:

“The more white women flock
to non-whites from the other tribes, the less white women there will be for our
white sons… We are mad because we don’t want to lose our white women, because
we are attracted to them and want them to be our wives, because we simply
aren’t attracted to other women. …The problem is that a growing number of white
ladies are taking liberalism to a horrific extreme. They are ashamed of being
white, they hate white men, and they feel they need to contribute to a better
future and make up for past wrongs committed by white man by literally bringing
about a white genocide.”

Can’t top that. Though I wonder what he will say about
this new commercial. Probably not much at all since his head will explode once
he sees it.

But I have to ask you like I did last time, do you have a problem
with the new spot yourself? Will it be as controversial as the first one? What do you say?
