We love cereal. And we love cute kids. So naturally, this commercial is a win/win for us.
But the new “Just Checking” Cheerios ad, which features a biracial child and an interracial couple, is ruffling some feathers.
Some of the comments on YouTube and Reddit are hard to read…but the gist is that interracial relationships are still taboo. (Believe me…people are pissed. And I quote…heads are going to explode when they do one for gay couples).
Anyway, watch the commercial above and tell us if you see anything wrong with it…is it racist? Is it inappropriate? Are we not ready to see the reality of America?
