I never did understand why this commercial, which General Mills aired last year, featuring a multi-racial couple and their child, was so controversial. When I’d read of the hateful feedback received from thousands of people on the company’s website and on YouTube, I was stunned and saddened.
Obviously, I was not the only one. It will be these children who will continue to change our world by raising the next generation with the same blindness toward race, creed, color, and sexuality.
This video makes my heart glad. And I was doubly glad to see Cheerios featured the same family in another commercial on Super Bowl Sunday.
