    As for the ad, it was cute but I have to say that the casting was awful - the kid didn't like like either of the parents and the man and woman, even in an age of interracial marriage, didn't look a bit like a couple you'd expect to be together. For that reason, it looks contrived and maybe that's why there's outcry. In any event, those who don't like it need to get a life.
    Of course it was contrived, they were all actors. Still, God forbid you show a white woman with a black man....some people are raving lunatics (not you, of course, but some people.)

    Perhaps I see more of it here in Toronto than some Americans are used to.

    Toronto's a very cosmopolitan city (and one of my favorite cities), so that's likely.

    It's funny in some respects - Toronto is about 47% minority population while the rest of Canada is about 15% - I think we have a lock on most of the social services provided to new immigrants and refugees so we attract the vast majority of new entrants. It's fun - I love all the different people here - just wish some of them didn't bring their fights from home with them when they get here.

    By the way, it is not just white racist but black racist to.

    Cheerios ad with interracial couple sparks racist anger. (VIDEO)
    I've had a few friends in interracial marriages - inevitably they get more heat and abuse from the black community than the white community. It's sad, I've actually had members of my church refuse to attend bible study because of stuff like "that white girl who steals black men is there".

    It's an anti-conservative conspiracy. The UN is in on it.

    Because, up til now, Canada has provided very generous benefits to refugees who enter our country and those who illegally enter our country and are waiting for their immigrant status to be adjudicated. The country provides them with benefits greater than citizens receive in most cases. It's why we've had a Roma problem the past ten years, with "gypsies" travelling from safe European countries to Canada, burning or flushing their passports on the way, and claiming refugee status when the plane lands - it's much easier and more lucrative than picking tourists' pockets in Europe - besides, while you're receiving Canadian welfare, housing, and full health and dental care, you can always pick pockets here on the side too. What's not to like??
