Didn't even notice the biracial couple.

Have any of you heard about the "controversial" Cheerios commercial with the mixed race mother and father? I heard about it this morning and couldn't picture the commercial in my mind. After seeing the commercial I realized I had seen it many times and never took notice that they were different races. EVEN if I had noticed, I probably would have thought something along the lines of, "How cool of Cheerios." Apparently this commercial, which by the way is adorable when the little girl dumps the Cheerios on her dads heart, has stirred up a "dramatic reaction" because people cannot believe they would use two actors of different races to play the parts of married couple. Youtube had to turn off their comment section to stop the inappropriate comments from continuing. SERIOUSLY? If you don't like it then just be content with your own opinions and stop spreading hate.

Okay. Someone needs to take my soapbox before I use it to hit someone.
