I feel sorry for people that see an "agenda" in everything that happens. Because they feel like their whole existence is controlled and can never be free.
Having an opinion or sharing a big picture observation does not mean a person is controlled. It just means that the person is aware. Nothing more, nothing less.

uh, that's exactly why (white) people are "racist"

this race mixing agenda hurts one group of people: white people.

is it wrong for them to want to preserve their race/heritage?

so i guess its a problem when commercials on tv represent the real world. i bet if it was a homos3xual couple with a child it would get praise.

Yeah, it's ok, but how does it help you just being proud of your race? Honestly? You should be proud of yourself, not of your race imo.


On topic: fu*k everyone who's against this commercial! All I see is a happy family.
Well when your people went through some hardships where incredible people had to go against the people as well as the system against them, and they did so in a non-violent civilized manor whereas the people who called them savages and animals were the one's acting like savages and animals. You're proud. You know what your people can do even when those same people who oppressed your people continue to tell you that your people can't.

White mom is at kitchen table appearing to be doing something important like "paperwork"


[pic - click to view]


The daughter was told by her Black father that Cheerios were good for the heart.
The daughter obviously didn't take her Black father's word for it as she had to confirm it with her White mother, whom she believed immediately, didn't have to verify any of her answers.


[pic - click to view]


Stereotypical image of lazy Black male sleeping on sofa as the White mother is in the kitchen doing something that appears to be important.

keep in mind that the Black Father was the one who told his daughter that Cheerios were good for the heart, implying that this is something he already knows, also implying that the daughter knows that he knows as well because he's the one who told the daughter.

so why did she pour Cheerios all over his "heart", what exactly is being implied here?
son... son... remove the words white and black from your post and you have your average family commercial/sitcom but its interesting that you see all this racial undertones just because dude is black

So, the idiots focus on race instead of the message of the little girl wanting to make sure her dad's heart stays healthy.


Like the first bi*ch that commented watches commercials to be accurately portrayed. I bet she isn't complaining about accurate portrayal when she watches all the dumb a.ss reality shows and dramas on TV now.

no that's not what I'm saying. I believe it's perfectly ok to be proud of your race as long as it is not in comparison to another. But what I meant was that with a world filled with people of multiple cultures, the elitism of one race over another simply cannot exist. But that's not to say everyone is racist. There are good human beings of all races throughout society right now.
lmfao. Race is hilarious to me. If life started in Africa...

I won't go there.

If you look a certain way, they say you belong to a certain group, because humans like groups. Rather it's a neighborhood, gang, royal family, village, skin color, tattoos, they just like groups for whatever reason.

I don't see any problem whatsoever with that commercial.

I do realize though that there are people alive today that lived in a time where you would be hung, k!lled, or beaten for stuff like this. Let them die off and then you'll see the change in society on a bigger scale. It's just like being gay. Kids grow up now thinking being gay is whatever. When they are 40-50.....being gay REALLY won't be anything.

This type of sh*t only happens in America bro
perhaps that's because "they" want us to be the most diverse for a reason. If you can't get along with the people in your city, state, country, etc... based on these trivial things, imagine how hard it would be to f!ght against the government of your country.

Read Willy Lynch's speech.

Light skinned black has always been tolerated more than dark skin.
If you haven't read Willie Lynch's speech and you're black, you certainly should. But you don't even have to... look at Boxden's eyecandy section.
