What do you say? | Does race still matter in 2013?

So the other day while surfing the Internet, I came across this cute Cheerios commercial on YouTube that made me smile.  That is until I started reading some of the comments left by other viewers.  Now first I must applaud General Mills the makers of the cereal for creating a commercial that shows an interracial family because we don't see that all too often on TV, in commercial form or otherwise.  But what I don't get is how images of an interracial couple can still cause such a stir in 2013.  Have we as a society not made any strides when it comes to race and race relations?

So take a a look at the commercial for yourself and tell me what if anything did General Mills do wrong by making this commercial?  I think it's cute and I like it but am I in the minority?

 Let's continue this conversation in the comments section below.  Does race still matter in 2013?  What do you think?

Let’s talk


  1. Comments have been taken down. They must have really been bad. The other commercials had lots ofnegative comments too. Very sad...when will Dr.Kings dream be a reality?

  2. Race still matters and it's unfortunate. When I saw this commercial, I didn't even notice the interracial couple until the second time that I saw it. Why this bothers people in 2013 baffles me.
