    I can't believe anyone has any thing negative to say about this. Mind blown. There are interracial families all around the world, so what if tv portrays actual reality. It's beautiful. There should be more commercials like this.

    If this wasn't an issue I would have only seen a cute commercial. I'm black and my husband is white and we have a beautiful 2 year old daughter who brings nothing but smiles to people's faces every single day. I will not apologize for that at all, and I applaud cheerios for REFUSING to take this commercial down. 2013 and racism is still making controversy? get over it, there's a whole cocktail of people out there.

    I never saw the commercial before now. It's a cute commercial, and absolutely nothing is wrong with an interracial family being shown on tv. It is the 21st century, why is race still an issue for some people?

    I cannot begin to imagine what all the fuss was about, or why they would even consider removing the commercial because of the comments of a few bigots.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with commercial. What is wrong is the fact that racism and bigotry still exist. Cherrios needs to stand behind their commercial and not let the ignorance of others stop them from showing the commercial. if they do, then the bigots win. For every racist there are those who are not. They are just not responding to the commercial because they see nothing offensive with it. Disable the comments and keep playing the commercial is my opinion. Don't let racism win!

    In this day & age why is this even an issue? In the 21st century interracial families are more common then Cheerios varieties anyway. Would this had been an issue if the couple were gay??

    I saw the commercial and thought it was odd the girl was mixed and the mother was white, but figured the kid was adopted. Then when I saw the father it made perfect sense. We have the perverts making gay marriage legal with no problem and they are complaining about this commercial like it is the 1950s.

    I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with the commercial. There will always be ignorant a** people in the world...color shouldn't matter, but for some a**holes that's all that matters. Get over it. And Cheerios should be ashamed of themselves...the bowed down to ignorance.

    I didn't even have conscious awareness it was an interracial family. When I heard about the brouhaha online, I thought "wow, am I supposed to be upset that I didn't even notice?" It's just so common in the big cities in California it's nothing to really take notice of in the first place, I guess.

    Of course the Liberal Media has been portraying it as all white people making the racist comments, but I read a lot of the comments and they were from both white and black people.
