    Sooner or later women will get the vote, if this keeps up.

    No disrespect, but hat is easy to say when you are not the recipient of it.

    I bet a good number of those users were just trolls. Shame that such a good commercial got hit like that.

    Despite the uptick in interracial couples on TV, the advertising world, as Ad Age reported last year, has been slow to catch up. A handful of ad campaigns have included such couples, but more the norm are ads like the ones for eHarmony or Viagra, which seem to go to great lengths to show same-race couples, as David Morse wrote. Among the exceptions: a 2004 Verizon ad, a white father and Latina mother were featured in a campaign that Slates Seth Stevenson described as more like a sitcom, successfully avoiding the sentiment of being a gimmick or pandering.

    It's pretty cute, but she'd be cleaning up those Cheerios.

    I do, too. And little kids like that. Later on they turn into nasty adults with partisan views and wild sex and liquor and dope and pressure cookers.

Funny thing I've noticed about British television, however, is that the the black man/white woman couple is so prevalent that it seems statistically unlikely given their demographics.
    Clearly you've never seen Arrow.
