People are losing their shit to the point where they disabled the comments on Youtube. I can kinda understand people’s anger: Cheerios showed a black man married to a white woman with an adorable daughter. Oh! The scandal! :rolleyes:
Now, I can’t tell how many of the Youtube comments was standard Youtube trolling or how many were genuinely racist, but I would not be surprised at the latter. I mean, last year a bunch of people on Twitter talked about how when Rue died in the Hunger Games they weren’t as sad because she was black and they pictured an “innocent white girl.” In 2005 Cameron Diaz was replaced by Eva Mendez because audiences wouldn’t have liked to see a black man kiss a white woman.
It’s the 2000s. What the hell is wrong with people?
Slightly unrelated: I’m mixed race and I’m tired of people asking “what are you?” I know they’re just curious and between my skin color and hair it’s pretty difficult to peg down my ethnicity, but I’m over it. I don’t want to be rude but I want to answer “I’m American. Does it matter?” My family on my mom’s side has been in this country since the 1880s. My family on my dad’s side since even before then.
