In May, a charming Cheerios commercial featuring an interracial family due to the ire of thousands of YouTube viewers. Outraged to see a multiracial family get airtime in the clip, critics posted vitriolic comments expressing their hatred for interracial relationships.
The outcry prompted Cheerios, the actors featured in the commercial and others to speak up and defend the clip. But the most powerful reaction to the commercial is from a group of children featured in a YouTube series, called “Kids React.”
In the 9-minute clip, which has garnered almost 3 million views, these children come off more enlightened, mature and accepting then the adults who slammed the video.
