Hooray for Cheerios!

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate. And if they can learn to hate then they can be taught to LOVE, for comes more naturally to the human heart then it's opposite."

-Nelson Mandela

Hello my dear friends. Many of you may have heard about the horrid comments made about the recent Cheerios commerical featuring an interracial couple and their mixed child. The ad received so many racist and negative comments that General Mills had to pull the comment section from their YouTube post.

I have never been ignorant to the hate here in America and the world, but this country in particular really needs to grow. 
I come from a very diverse background and my own child is biracial and bicultural . There is no reason that in this day and age we still are so divided my color, but we are. I see the comments on Facebook and the political reteric and it makes me sad for a time, but it also makes me wants to work harder, love stronger, be better then those who hate me and those who just hate in general. Everyday, I look at my son and I am amazed at this perfect human being who was created from two people of two different colors, cultures and languages. It is spell bounding and a reminder that love and goodness will always privale.

There will always be hatful people that abound, but it is our job and duty to counter it. So hooray for Cheerios! You have a customer for life :D

With so much love
Malinda xoxo

  1. I hope that the races and ethnicities will continue to mix and swirl so that by the time our children are adults, there will be so many different colors in the world!
