Last week while watching television a new commercial for Cheerios came on and it immediately caught my attention. The cute little girl was obviously “mixed” or biracial, cute as a button with corkscrew curls, talking to her mother, who is Caucasian. She’s just checking to see if what her dad said was true, that Cheerios were good for the heart. Once mom verifies that Cheerios are Heart Healthy she quickly runs out of the kitchen.
The next scene is that of her African American father napping on the sofa, waking up with a chest full of Cheerios. This heart-healthy, family commercial is cute…right?
To some people “no” it’s not, I guess to them having 1 biracial person featured on television is enough – sorry little Cheerios girl the President filled the quota.
