It's not racist at all, it's the opposite, rather. It's a pretty normal thing, but for a bunch of people seeing an interracial marriage on an advert it means destroying the ~purity~ of the ~white man~, which means "demolishing the spirit of the US" or some crap.
The real question is, what's wrong with people who see anything wrong here. Interracial marriage is a thing, and has been for decades. The still existing spurs of racism are amazing.
This. That commercial was adorable and sweet. The innocence of a child should be the focus of attention, not "OMG THE DAD'S BLACK WTFFF."
I've never seen this commercial in Canada so it might be a US-only viewing. People need to be less concerned about who others marry or engage themselves with. It's as bad as religious people being up in arms about homosexual marriage. You have the right not to like it; however, you definitely do not have the right to bash others for their life choices. Same can be said of inter-racial couples. Have we not outgrown that mentality? Jeez.
... this is the most ridiculous thing I've heard all week haha. I watched the video thinking "... why on earth does this warrant a thread", then after reading the content I didn't know whether to cry or laugh. The video with all the children's' reactions was touching but the fact that it even had to be made is... stunning, haha. It's quite amazing how close-minded some people can be, but I suppose it's often just a case of generations or how you were raised. Whether that's worth forgiving I don't know, but the fact itself is still horrid to think about.
