Who doesn't love Cheerios?
On Tuesday, May 28th Cheerios (General Mills) released an ad that depicted a multi-ethnic family, a mom (who happens to be Caucasian), a dad (who happens to be African-American), and an adorable child (who happens to be of a mixed ethnicity)
...People. Are. PISSED.
Watch the commercial below and see how you feel.
- Racism is STUPID. No matter who it comes from black, white, purple, red, green, yellow, brown...it's ALL stupid.
- This commercial is just plain cute. There's no other way around it.
- People have the right to demand representation and recognition in the media and from companies they support. Why wouldn't people of multiple races? ...I'll wait.
Here's a comment posted on Reddit:
"Shoving multi-culturism down our throats when we know it fails.. awesome"
How is this commercial shoving ANYTHING down your throat, besides Cheerios? Multi-cultured people EXIST. Deal.
Look, let me calm down. Share this post and your thoughts!
