UH OH! They’re back!

America’s favorite interracial family from that controversial Cheerios commercial last spring is back in a new spot for the cereal, which will make its broadcast premiere on this Sunday’s Super Bowl football game. The first time that Cheerios has ever had a commercial shown during the event.

As you will recall back in May, I wrote a piece (HERE) about the first Cheerios commercial, which was already generating a lot of talk at the time of the post. The piece drew literally hundreds of comments. Most were favorable, but others weren’t too thrilled, to put it very mildly.

However one commenter who called himself Castigator stood out by saying that the commercial really bothered him because:

“The more white women flock to non-whites from the other tribes, the less white women there will be for our white sons… We are mad because we don't want to lose our white women, because we are attracted to them and want them to be our wives, because we simply aren't attracted to other women. …The problem is that a growing number of white ladies are taking liberalism to a horrific extreme. They are ashamed of being white, they hate white men, and they feel they need to contribute to a better future and make up for past wrongs committed by white man by literally bringing about a white genocide.”

Can’t top that. Though I wonder what he will say about this new commercial. Probably not much at all since his head will explode once he sees it.

But I have to ask you like I did last time, do you have a problem with the new spot yourself? Will it be as controversial as the first one? What do you say?

    The controversy over this shows that the lid to Hell is not screwed on tightly enough.

    White men would have absolutely no problem with this commercial if it featured a WM and a BW. White men have enjoyed unlimited access to the bodies of black women for 400 years. What makes white men go crazy is the idea that black men are having sex with and IMPREGNATING white women. That is the real problem.

    Interracial Love, Gay Love.... Love is Love. However, when it overpowers Black Love is the issue I have. We get every type of love shoved down our throats, except Black Love........................ #blacklove

    To be honest with you. I don't think it's a lot of black women that's re-acting to this commerical. I think it's a lot of older white men hiding behind black women. It's easy to except if everyone thinks it's black women. The media feed black men and the white community this idea that we are angry . Then again if you look at ATL house wives, B-ball wives, I could see how the media beleive that we are all that way.

    Nice marketing on GM's part. Woulda been 'sweeter' if it were an ad for MULTIGRAIN CHEERIOS DARK CHOCOLATE CRUNCH (real product, got some on my shelf now).

    Next up: We meet her cousin from inter-racial marriage of his sister or her brother.
    Let the good times roll!!!

    That little girl is clearly the star of the show. That look she gave at the end. I want to see the Cheerios commercial when she's a teenager and tells Mom and Dad to 'talk to the hand' (or whatever the popular parlance will be) on her way out the door to meet her friends (lol). Dad conceded to the puppy, now you won't be able to tell her nothin'(lol)

    Change it to a white man and black woman and there's no controversy. You see that on TV all the time with no problems. Hmmm ...

  • scripttease | January 31, 2014 2:46 PM

    .... yeah right. "White Man's whore, Bed Wenches.... comes to mine. SMDH

    Great Commercial, talented kid. hundreds of thousands of kids with families like this one see themselves at last. I know media manipulation when I see it. This is common place and about time we got to see it more often.

    As for that damn Gracie...give her a cat and make her walk it!!!

  • Geneva Girl | January 30, 2014 1:10 PMReply

    That little girl can act. She said so much with one little smirk. She played Daddy's Little Girl to the hilt. Cute girl. Cute commercial. And, I loved Mom's look at the end, "Puppy!?! Are you kidding me?"

  • Denise | January 30, 2014 11:53 AMReply

    Who cares! There are bigger problems in society to concern ourselves with.

  • Anonymous | January 30, 2014 10:18 AMReply

    People, get over it. It's a commercial. And one that represents many families in America.

  • AcornNancy | January 30, 2014 10:03 AMReply

    I love these ads. It all feels right. I'm a very white Angl0-Saxon female who sees nothing out of the ordinary here. Love is love.

    I LOVE the look on Gracie's face that says, "Oh, Daddy, you KNOW I will need just as much attention as the new kid, so don't think you're gonna forget about me even for a second; if you do, I will make your life miserable. To soothe my potential pouts and rants when the baby comes, I will need a puppy. Jewelry will come later, I trust."

    I love how the media tried to spin it the first time around and blamed whites for complaining about the ad when the majority of the criticism came from bitter black women who had a problem seeing a Black man with a white woman.

  • BluTopaz | January 30, 2014 9:43 PM

    I love how delusional pricks like yourself come out of the woodwork and make up stories to entertain yourselves and the voices in your heads.

    Go and look at lynching photos and see how much the mere thought of miscegenation is traditionally loved by White people in this country. Then parade your white woman through a predominantly white neighborhood, and see how it's not Black women your dumb ass needs to be worried about.

  • Bish, Please | January 30, 2014 10:23 AM

    Liar.

  • Jane | January 29, 2014 7:50 PMReply

    Since I wasn't offended by the first one, I don't see a reason to be offended by this one. Cute family about to get cuter.

  • J Philip Faranda | January 29, 2014 7:38 PMReply

    Here's a thought: Let's marry the person we love, have children who are products of that love, and treat them accordingly-with love.

    Then, we can all eat the breakfast food product of our respective choices.

    You marry who you love, I'll marry who I love, and those who choose to add puppies can do so too.

  • Alex | January 29, 2014 7:08 PMReply

    The only problem I have is that this child has her dad wrapped around her finger... A puppy?! She knows she was levelling the playing field. I'd have loved to see how she'd of reacted if he'd said "No". Push on with this ads. People dumb enough to be offended or appalled need to be eradicated, period.

  • JIM | January 30, 2014 4:00 PM

    I would have slapped the s**t out of my daughter had she pulled the "and a puppy" trick.

  • RogerM | January 29, 2014 11:58 PM

    Haha! Awesome!

  • @JayTeeDee | January 29, 2014 6:36 PMReply

    It's gonna be the same faux backlash that happened last time.

  • Lauren | January 29, 2014 6:22 PMReply

    Funny, substitute "black women" for white women in Castigator's comment and it sounds sickly familiar. Looking forward to the day when "our women" is erased from the minds of all men who think women are their property.

  • Bish, Please | January 30, 2014 10:24 AM

    Preach.
