    glad we've finally got to the point where we can effectively judge the overall pulse of america by usings comments made on social media.

    This shit is not suprising or unusual Matt.

    People say what they truly feel on the internet. Yes there are some trolls, but if you spent any time on CNN.com or Yahoo News and read the comments this shit is tame in comparison.

    Nobody is going to publicly speak against IR relationships because they know better, but there is definitely an underlying current that proves America is not ready for it to be accepted as normal by depicting it in something as all-American and wholesome as a Cheerios commercial.

    It's still viewed as taboo and participants are seen as lesser than...it's stupid.

    i'm not saying that people don't feel a certain way about stuff like this or that every online comment is meant to troll, or to get a reaction from people. There is a segment of the population that probably finds this to be disgusting. I'm not denying that.

    I'm looking at it like this: how many truely racist comments were made about this commercial? A thousand? maybe 10,000??? Thats an extremely small percentage compared to the number of people who watched the commercial, who liked the video, who had something positive to say, or who just didn't say anything at all. Its silly to take the opinions of a few and pretend the represent the whole

    Oh that's not my intention at all, I know the outspoken idiots are not the majority.

    That said, for every outspoken idiot there is another idiot that won't say anything.

    Like my grandmother for example, she don't like race mixing, but she sure wouldn't be quick to announce it in front of the congregation at her church.

    People still feel this way, ESPECIALLY the baby boomers and older. It's just the way they were raised.

    Just because you were raised a certain way doesnt make it right

    You're absolutely right.

    I cut my parents some slack when it first became a topic in our family because I know how they were raised coming up in the South, and I could see that they truly made effort to understand and try to reprogram that thought process...it's not perfect but they've come a long way.

    And like Norm said, once you see that little face any resistance just melts away.

    The same way a racist person had the god given right to feel that way, you niggas have the god given right to disagree with them.

    As I have stated in another thread, we subconsciously criminalize blackness when say things like "its because I'm black" or "driving while black".

    May you expand more on this thought, please?
