And let the record show that racists people are usually miserable wastes of human life. Why is it always the ugliest man with more "chins" than the Hong Kong census and less education than your average tree stump who insists that he is the "master race"?

I think Cheerios marketing is genius. Sure, it doesn't relate well with most couples because inter-racial couples are not the norm. Sure, it angers racist white men but not nearly as much as it angers racist black women. Throw in a cute factor for the heart string tug and it gets attention.

What I do have a problem with is that in my opinion, Cheerios used race issues to market a product. Don't inter-racial couples have enough pressure? Isn't it difficult enough for this small percentage of couples to succeed? Don't people understand that ramming this down everyone's throat isn't a healthy way to reduce racial tension. For this reason I will never buy another box of Cheerios.

As a side note if I was black I would be angry with a commercial that showed a white person working while the black person slept on a couch. Just seems a little racist to me.

Oh ok so you're outraged, not because interracial couples have to experience racial tension to begin with. No, you're outraged because I guess GM didn't shun interracial couples who eat boxes of cheerios because they don't exist. Yes, THAT is the issue.

I happen to have a few black folks on speed dial and they said that they have no qualms the representation of the quintessential *dad on the couch cat nap* gag while the daughter depicted shows the genuine love for her father buy pouring cheerios on his chest to ensure he lives a long and happy life. next.

I'm sure television really gives a damn. You racists are obsolete. Enjoy.

It's genocide.

Definition of GENOCIDE

: the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group

Whether it's intentional or not is unknown. But it's an issue that needs fixing.
If this results in the elimination of backwards racists from this planet, I'm all for it. Good riddance.

How are you so sure that there was some kind of racist intent? Interracial couples and families DO exist you know. Black guy on a couch? For pete's sake, how was the daughter going to pour the cheerios on the father's heart if he was standing up or sitting down?

Have some damn courage because truthfully, you're not a principled person. Just say you're offended because you're a racist and leave it at that.

You and no one else is gonna stop buying Cheerios because of something being shoved down your throat. Either you were buying the cereal because you like it, or you won't buy it because you've NEVER bought it in the first place.

But to pretend that you're not gonna buy it out of some fake ass principled reason is laughable on its face. Get real. All of the faux concern about how difficult it must be for mixed race couples in your post is so disingenuous that i'm surprised that you had the guts to post it. Yea...it's THAT transparently fake.
