After an unexpected backlash over what seemed to be just another commercial, General Mills decided to temporarily disable commenting on a YouTube video of one of its new ads that features a White mother, a Black father and an interracial child, but on Friday associate marketing director for Cheerios and Multigrain Cheerios at General Mills in Golden Valley, Minnesota Meredith Tutterow stated that the ad will “absolutely not” be withdrawn.

wow, I've been googling the response. I like this one:

Jezebel:

By now you know some racist dicks have whipped themselves up in a frenzy of racist dickery over the portrayal of an interracial family in a Cheerios ad. You see, Cheerios has committed the heinous crime of "acknowledging that interracial families exist," and also that "sometimes interracial families need to eat breakfast." This was too much for the racist dicks--Cheerios was forced to disable comments on YouTube where the video was posted. (What's up with you racist dicks, anyway? Don't you have jobs?)

I am biracial. My mom is black and my dad is white. My family often had the audacity to eat breakfast even though cereal was not being specifically marketed to us....

If you get tired of pancakes, just put something different on them. like jelly and brown sugar. Then when you go back to syrup, you'll be so excited again!

But on a serious note, I have so many mixed race people in my entire family and find it amazing that knuckle-heads think they can hurt someone's feelings with the comments they make. They hide behind the veil of internet anonymity and say these things (like cowards do) thus you get those types of comments. YouTube should go to a 'Facebook only' style posting forum as that usually weeds out a lot of the riff-raff.

Yeah, you've gotta love the anonymous posters and their ignorant, idiotic posts. You would hope everybody would be beyond this stuff by now, but sadly......

I don't know the race of a single member here at SF. What does it matter? I'm friendly with many people here, and have only had real problems with outsiders that come here to stir up shit. The bottom line is that the color of a person's skin shouldn't matter to anyone if you are a thinking human being. For example, it blows my mind that there are people out there that could consider someone posting on this board as a friend, then find out that they have different colored skin than he/she thought, and then feel differently about them as a person.....that's F'd up.
