    This is amazing. It is interesting to me that this is so notable to people, it made national ABC news http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2013/05/interracial-family-in-cheerios-ad-gets-hate-comments/. I wonder if I would have noticed that the family was biracial if I had just seen the commercial on TV. The level of overt aversion people have the this family is disturbing. Most of the angry racist comments seem to focused on the “contamination” of race. So sad
