Oh my GOD! How cutting edge! A black man with a white woman!!! What's next? An Asian man with a Hindu wife?

Get over it, and stop referring to it as controversial just because you get wrap your tiny brain around it.

Mixed marriages never work.
That's why men should stay with men and
women should stay with women.

You know, sometimes we all need to think like children more and be less cynical about life. Dylan seems really familiar, has he been in these vids before? Also the girl at the end shows how some of the effected people feel. :(

Christ- I actually thought it was only certain areas that had a race problem. I thought the USA was a forward thinking nation until recently.

madduck,

Most states started allowing it from the 50's onward, but ut wasn't until the poingnantly named Loving v. Virginia that the dozen or so holdouts lost the right to outlaw inter-marriage

REALLY? I thought that was only a bit of the South? Surely the rest of the country was normal- and it should have caught up by now for Gods sake...

madduck,

'surely inter racial marriages/relationships stopped being unusual about 40 years ago?'

No, that's when they stopped being illegal.

Was this the first commercial to involve a mixed-race family? Was there any actual outrage?

Okay- genuine question- surely inter racial marriages/relationships stopped being unusual about 40 years ago? How can this be contoversial?

A lot of people "took notice".
But no one wants to be called a racist so they say "I don't see anything".

Emperor's new clothes.

No me of course, I didn't see anything.

I've never heard one ounce of actual outrage about this commercial, but it somehow won't go away. It's a fake, false outrage.

Drawman, the US is not fracked up on race. We have a black president. We are the only country where the traditional majority would even come close to democratically electing a minority. Go examine yourself and your decaying continent before examining our decaying continent.

TruTenrMan,
Should've seen some of the comments on Youtube. No idea of the percentage of White vs. Black, of course but there were outraged a$$holes of both types. Who knows...now that they have something in common, maybe those idiots can become friends!

I never saw one "outraged" comment about the commercial. I'd be interested to know what percentage of white-vs-black were outraged over it. Who was more outraged? The whites or blacks?

I don't know why, but this seemed a bit scripted to me.
Despite though, a majority of kids just saw an everyday commercial, they are too young to know that most people think that interracial couples are a horrible thing.
Ah.. To have the innocence of a kid again.

LMFAO @ Carmium! YESSSSS.

And have the one dad being flamboyantly gay while the other is more conservative gay.

Pat Robertson will then say: "I used to love Cheerios, that wholesome, healthy, all American breakfast cereal. But now that they've become Queerios, I vomit just like when I see gays on Facebook. Jesus hates Cheerios now."

@carmium,
"I hope Cheerios makes a gay couple ad soon just to piss them off more."

I bow to you, ma'am.
