As Our World Changes

Recently it's been in the news about the latest Cheerios commercial that include a bi-racial child with her white mother and black father. The commerical is incredibly cute and clever. But there have been derogatory posts and some negative responses to the ad. This seems hard to believe. Racism is still alive in the United States. In 2013 some people still have trouble accepting interracial relationships and marriages. Isn't this like not accepting the digital age and the advancement of technology? I believe love is love regardless of the color of the individuals.

There have always been people who bucked the system and sometimes, their families, to marry someone outside their race. Why do some people refuse to accept this? Maybe the racism is  ingrained, maybe they're ignorant or maybe they cannot accept change.

America is changing folks. Minorities are no longer the minority. Many young people are marrying outside of their race. I have three black girlfriends whose daughters have married white men.

Isn't it time for people to get over this? Why hold on to hate? I just don't get it. It's time to embrace change rather than fight it.
