Behind closed doors - blacks have more of a problem of interracial marriage than whites do.

She looks like a cute little girl. Good for Cheerios. I literally had cereal for dinner tonight……but not cheerios but Frosted Mini Wheats (Little Bites). I had to big bowls too and it was delicious.

Barack Obama pretends he’s not from a biracial (actually tri-racial) household. Why is that?

Behind closed doors - blacks have more of a problem of interracial marriage than whites do.

Specifically, black women.

Black women can't stand brothas down with the swirl.

I can’t believe that anyone gives a hoot in this day and age about mixed marriages.

Seriously. Who gives a damn?

There was some interracial guy on TV last night. Kept talking and talking and talking and wouldn’t stop. Didn’t realize it was controversial.

Yep. Its not the kid’s fault. Probably a non-issue anymore to most IMO not that I like interacial relationships. Really depends on the type people they are in my book.

Doesn’t take much to shock some folks these days. Miley twerking like a horny hooker in front of her Disney fans; No problem, Mass gay weddings in public performed by people who openly despise the church? That’s Inclusive. Showing a mixed race child in a home environment having a breakfast cereal?
OMG! APPALLING! Make it stop!!!

The ad features the same black father and white mother from Cheerios' "Just Checking" ad, which received an outburst of hateful comments from those opposed to interracial marriage, and an equally forceful response from those happy to see such a family depicted in a major brand's ad campaign.

So, you see, one must have "approved" opinions. If one is not in favor of mixed race marriages, he has "hateful comments" whereas those are in favor have "forceful responses." It seems to be a nice balanced way of putting it.

My point—and I do have one—is that the news should report things objectively, i.e., leave out the adjectives.

Huh? What controversy? Guess I missed that.

It’s a cute ad. The interracial element hasn’t really been controversial for thirty years.

That said... I am getting a little tired and bored do all the -forced- multiculti in marketing these days. Seems like every ad has to check off all the boxes that they’ve got the white dude, the Asian dude, the black dude, the east-Indian dude, the whatever else... Yeesh... Give it a rest already.

Kind of freaks me out to think that not too long ago, democrats would not have permitted me to marry a morena Latina but now they try to cater to Latinos in general as if they are their best friends. How soon people forget the crimes if the democrat party and their social club, the KKK.

Could much of the speech have gone into the container on the right while the speaker could go into the container on the left?

Has anyone else noticed the ad agencies preoccupation with very light skinned black females, all with Shirley Temple hairdos?

Why no women who might pass for a Native Black African? “African-American” male models & actors in commercials are similar, but at least without the Shirley Temple hairdo.

I guess if white American males get stuck with metro-sexual pajama-boy types as our representatives in ads, it is only fair that African-American women get a heavily tanned 20-something Shirley Temple as their representative.

I know....black women especially don't like the whitey beaches taken "their" men...

and I too missed the firestorm....

frankly, I am pleasantly surprised lately that black women or asian women have been featured with white men....which is the new in vogue social concept...
