    I think it's suppose ta get under your skin. May be we all have a heart. Who knows what the skin tone we'll end up with, or if we'll be a dalmatian.

    I must be very unobservant. I didn't even notice it was a biracial family. I just thought it was a really cute commercial. I guess I ought to pay closer attention to details, although each person depicted is a child of my Heavenly Father and therefore is of the same spiritual race.

    In the 1950's interracial friends had to drive to Washington state to get married since it was against the law in Oregon at the time. Obviously we accept interracial marriages at this time without problem (for most of us). The process takes time - though some never take the leap to remove bigotry from their lives.

    does it really matter ? the family is shown as a loving mother, loving father and a little daughter concerned about her father's heart (which by the way is adorable). i applaud cherrios show a true family unit ! a male father, a female mother and a loving child....what they could change is add more children to the mix.

    There's a lovely online parody video produced in response to the racist backlash to the original ad. It is virtually identical with the white mom in the kitchen and uber-cute biracial girl, except that the snoozing brown parent on the couch waking to a chestful of Cheerios is another woman. Yep. We'll see your outrage at interracial marriage and raise it with a depiction of interracial same-sex marriage.
