Interracial Cheerios Ad Creates Racist Backlash

All it takes for the white supremacist racist haters to climb out of their holes is an innocuous Cheerios ad featuring an interracial couple with a cute bi-racial kid.  It's like any other Cheerios ad, save for the color of the actors' skin.

General Mills posted the ad on YouTube and finally had to disable comments because of all the vile comments people were leaving. They're still leaving them on all the various articles discussing the issue, and on the discussion page of Cheerios YouTube channel.

When are we going to get over this?  People inter-marry, so what.

It's about time the advertising world reflects the U.S. as it is: racially diverse.
