Thank you Cheerios. My family have always loved Cheerios and here is one more
reason to love my big yellow box. One of my children is biracial and I
previously did daycare for a family with 3 biracial children. Are they any less
precious to God than kids from traditional families? I don't think so. I
currently have a friend with 3 biracial children. They are all bright, well
behaved, and a good example to other people in the community. Who cares what
they look like or who their parents are? Really, as a country, aren't we
supposed to be past this kind of prejudice? Grow up, people who are so petty!!
Every child is beautiful and every family has its own style. Each of us is
precious to God.
Very nice commercial. Take a look around Utah and you'll see plenty of good
people in good families whose skin doesn't match. And who cares. I
don't. Just glad to see those families happy and living right. Race is
ridiculous. Hooray for the mongrelization of the species!!! (That's an old
KKK standard. Awful.)
I liked the commercial. thought it was very well done.
Nutritional value of the cereal aside, I'm astounded to see that such an
issue has been made of a total non-issue. How ridiculous can you get, you
racist critics!?! This is 2013, not 1968 with "Guess Who's Coming to
Dinner?" It's time to end the racism already and to quit being shocked
by or critical of interracial marriages. As for the advertisement itself, I
thought it showed a sweet daddy-daughter relationship.
Love the commercial and love Cheerios!!
I would like to add to my previous comment. Not only did they target black
people for the heart attack issue but have also targeted white people who have a
higher incidence of high cholesterol. It was a pretty intelligent targeting of
two separate groups in one ad. Of course whether Cheerios actually helps with
those health issues is open to debate.
I have seen the commercial, and paid no attention to the race of the
actors.Don't care one way or the other. Last I heard, this was the 21st
century. I would like to know if there was really a "huge" outcry, or if
the media is blowing it out of proportion. Again.
What no one seems to notice is that the ad is targeted to black people who have
30% higher heart attack rate than other groups. Oddly enough they have a lower
cholesterol rate than non Latino whites. Still the ads do seem to be addressing
a known health issue.
There was no question that this commercial represents the reality for a lot of
individuals in the United States. What is surprising is that there are so many
individuals that are still living in the prejudice of the past and have just
kept their anger under raps. The hate mail was not against GM
foods, it was directed toward the upper-middle class, bi-racial couple that was
being portrayed. Thank you for your comments, but please do not dilute the real
issue with your food fears. I doubt that the hate mail was from
Utah. As a transplant to this state, I have found a great degree of openness and
a welcoming attitude that makes reports of this prejudice seem so out of place.
Nice commercial. Don't understand why anyone is really in an uproar. Is the
media making this story up? Who is offended?Not sure that Cheerios
is really good for your heart, but if you don't eat anything, you would
die, so better to eat Cheerios than nothing at all. Just like my president has
saved millions of jobs simply because he didn't force employers to cut
It kind of amazes me that there are apparently still a large number of people
who have some sort of irrational problem with interracial marriages and
families. I didn't even realize that this was a big deal, as I would not
have even thought twice about the commercial had I seen it before reading the
news. Just goes to show that you can't legislate idiocy out of human
nature, I guess.Also,@ luv2organizeCan you
please cite peer reviewed research as to exactly how genetically modified foods
are nutritionally inferior to non-genetically modified foods and/or how they
present any specific danger to those who eat them?
Too many bigots, too little love.
This one of the companies that called Nabisco Shredded Wheat, empty calories, as
it was not chuck full of the ingredients to make a body health, according to
their definition of healthy, prior to the government dictating everything that
cereal should have. I didn't know that General Mills was part
of the TARP or Incentive monies handed out to make private companies and
corporations part of the government's politically correct social programs
to influence children's minds prior to 10 p.m. Isn't there an FCC
ruling on the intent of advertising of children's products?Companies, including Google and Apple want to make this administration's
good list in what they do. Quid Pro Quo is the name of the game an corporations
want to be winners.
This is one of the few commercials that I watch instead of fast forwarding
through. It is so cute. Cheerios is right! The racists need to pack it in and
Let's look at the more important issue at hand with Cheerios and General
Mills products - genetically modified ingredients. Did you know that Cheerios
now has genetically modified corn starch in its list of ingredients? Don't
feed it to your babies anymore. Stand up to these big food companies and stop
buying their products.
