Last year Cheerios ran an ad featuring a biracial family and half the internet lost its damn mind. How dare they show a family with a black man, a white woman, and their biracial daughter! What will we tell our kids? Cheerios never backed down from that ad and has gone a step farther. For the first time it will be doing a Cheerios ad during the Super Bowl on Sunday and they brought back the family. It's cute, it's funny, and it's realistic (I see your baby brother and raise you a puppy). I love it when corporations refuse to be cowed by the screeching hordes of people who would like the world to return to the days of Ozzy and Harriet (if you want another giggle check out the commenters to this AfterEllen article who clearly wandered into areas of the internet they didn't understand). The world is changing and it's a wonderful thing to see. I just hope my kids don't see this and start asking for a puppy (or a little brother for that matter).
Have a lovely weekend.
