Racism Still Too Alive in America
Anyone that says racism is not a problem in America is either completely out of touch with the real America or is not being honest. When having a mixed race couple and child in a breakfast cereal ad creates threats by some to no longer buy that product, I think it is a pretty good indication that we still have a significant problem with race.
We HAVE come a long way from “separate but equal” and other similarly racist attitudes and laws in America. But the fact this commercial is an issue at all says we still have a long way to go! We need to keep making progress and keep calling out racists for exactly what they are.
