Breakfast & Biracial Families

This is my new favorite commercial on TV, for obvious reasons. The little girl is cute as a button, and reminds me of…I don’t know…somebody.

 

But if you’ve been following the blogosphere, you know that the commercial set off some less-than-intelligent debates and racial slurs in the comments on its YouTube page, ultimately forcing Cheerios to turn the commenting feature off.

Jemar Tisby nails the racism issue in his helpful blog post, and reminds the believing community that the church still has a long way to go to see racial reconciliation become a reality.

So what do you think? Cute breakfast commercial? Or the most important conversation of the day? (see what I did there?)

One Comment.
  1. One thing that I noted in the commercial was that you didn’t actually see the man and the woman together. You knew they were a couple because of the dialogue and the child but imagine the reaction had the commercial featured the man and woman together at the kitchen table, sitting on the couch together, or, brace yourself….having the child bring them some Cheerios as they woke up together in bed!
