Your an Old FOOL and you still haven't learned anything! Most Black women take care of their children alone; MOST Black men abandon their children and don't take care of them from age 2 to adulthood !

Take care of someone? You MACEO! LMAO

You didn't take care of your Mother dying with CANCER but you sure worshipped your Ex White wife and her family and did for them!

WTF is wrong with you MACEO?

Damn! Many black men are too happy and flattered that one of them are being represented as a plain jane white woman's husband and father of her child that they are too dumbstruck to see that they possibly are being used as propaganda for tea baggers and the rest of right wingers to gather hate against the black race, black and biracial males in particularly. President Obama is one of the most honorable presidents yet he is being disrespected more than any president (even the rotten ones like G.W. Bush and Nixon) than I have ever seen just because he is biracial and his dad was a black man. Do we really know the people who head General Mills or their real agenda for putting out such a commercial with a black man married to a white woman and their mixed off-spring? When they had to know it would rally hate from some segments of the population.

Its time for the Cheerios commercial!

There are a lot of biracial children that Black men birth and I see lot of Poor White women as single parents with no Black husbands or BF around and the children have "No Fathers"!

Yes, I see them disrespecting President Obama but I knew that would happen!

MACEO rallyed because he wanted White women for himself only while Black women remained alone!

Now Black women are seeking/dating/marrying White male and other races and have "Sworn off" Black males and now MACEO is alone, sickly and IMPOTENT with no White woman in his life! lmao

Just don't be so quick to buy into something at first sight because it seems pleasing or harmless to you. Smart white men have always counted on this from black men. There was a reason for that commercial more than to up their sells to BM/WW couples.
Capree

Wouldn't that represents your Family should you have children? It represents mine as my daughter is very light skin and I'm tan color. My daughter is 3 shades lighter than me with keen features.

She looks just as biracial as the Commercial. The commercial could be me! Ive met some Black families and they got upset that I looked White or Black European to them and they got upset! The Black man kept chasing me but I told him NO! I'm not going to fight someone's family who hates because becuase I'm mixed.

Black men Hating Black women

I recently came across a book written by a self-described “touring stand-up comedian, day trader, filmmaker and lecturer” named Rajen Persaud. The book is entitled “Why Black Men Love White Women.” I found the book’s title startling, primarily because it explicitly acknowledged a fact of which many in the black community are acutely aware, but that is rarely openly discussed: that black men love white women

While many black men actively express love, admiration, and desire for white women, that loving white women is an inherent part of black manhood in the West is not something that black men like to openly admit. Their adoration of white women is an uncomfortable fact for many black men to face, since this love seems to play neatly into stereotypes about uncontrollable “animal” lust for white flesh that black people, especially black women, have actively campaigned against Additionally, and perhaps more significantly, black men are deeply uncomfortable with the conundrum presented by loving the daughter, the sister, the very womb that produces their declared enemy. Even Mr. Persaud seems incapable of facing the centrality of this latter issue, since, despite his refreshing candor in titling his book, its gravamen has as much to do with hatred for black women as it does love for white women. Black men love their whiteness implications of their love of whiteness is difficult for many black men.

Instead, these emotions are channeled into loathing of black women, which is justified by cataloging black women’s myriad “shortcomings.” This allows black men to claim to be proud and self-loving, while simultaneously adoring and esteeming all things white which they elevate about Black women.

Mr. Persaud begins his book with the contention that any exploration of black male love for white women must begin “with the white man.” This is a common-place tactic; it is difficult for black men. They love their enemy's daughters and uplift them over their own daughters them bring into the world. Any discussion or critical analysis of any issue without circling back to white men, especially if the resulting discourse will be less than flattering to black men.

Whether denominated or not, the root of black male hatred of black women is the conceptualization of women as objects. Objects have relative value, and in the hierarchy Black women have no value. When black men look at black women and children, they see the shame of emasculation, of inadequacy, of the inability to protect and provide. And rather than being enraged and inspired by this experience of being unmanned to fight for their dependents, black men seek to escape them, and the pain of feeling like less than men. rather than confronting white men they uplift and LOVE white women putting them on a pedestal.

White women, on the other hand, have the highest value as objects. They feel like they accomplish so much marrying a white woman. To men who feel like nothing, a white or white-skinned woman is a tangible accomplishment; a thing that they can point to which immediately frees them from the burden of blackness.“Black men say White women love me; it proves that I am worthy of white love. I am loved like a white man. I am a white man. I marry the culture, white beauty, white whiteness. When my restless hands caress those white breasts and I own and have access to Whiteness. White women are the prize, and black men are eagerly claiming that prize after the exhausting struggles for manumission and Civil Rights. They may not have gained real access to equal work, equal pay, equal wealth or equal opportunity; but black men have gained access to the bodies of white women. In the face of so many losses, possessing a white or non-black woman feels like a sufficient win for many black men

Well black boys and young black men pay the greatest price for the neglect and escapism of their fathers.

I don't see what the big deal of the commercial is. It isn't controversial and the only thing reason people would have a problem with it is because they disagree about interracial couples.

I thought the commercial was adorable as well as brilliant.

Probably that he actually have a meaningful relationship with them.
I see I didn't get an answer to my question.

Don't see anything wrong with wanting a woman to like sailing,fishing,hiking,travel, etc.or wanting a woman to be low maintenance with no drama,baggage,or things like weaves,watching a lot of TV. No bastard kids.
I prefer health minded and fit.
I don't want to get married.
Wanting them to own a passport and more than 4 weeks vacation a year and able to be flexible.
Knowing at least one foreign language and enjoy visiting exotic places,people,foods in other countries. I've been known to take an.extra two days vacation and go to Hong Kong for the weekend.
Stable career and can handle her own finances.
Knowing how to help me decorate my place better because I can't decorate worth crap.
Being there for each other.
Just spent five days sailing from Ft.lauderdale to Bimini and back and we had a great time.
Two weekends ago we flew on the Famous Memphis Bell and met Rosie the Riveter.
I take her to look at aircraft she takes me to the opera.
Plan to do some hiking around Lake Bled in September. Cooks in December.
She's wants to help me extend a French drain Saturday off my back patio then when we are done throw some fresh salmon steaks on the grill and watch some scifi. On Sunday maybe walk the jogging trail a few miles in the morning just sit together on the upper balcony and read a book during the afternoon.
Etc,etc,etc....
I can't be that demanding and unrealistic. Never had any issues.
Plenty of women out there.
Life is too short.
Don't have patience for nonsense.
Heck I will avoid a woman just for illegally parking in a handicap zone and I don't care how pretty or what color they are.

Since most people, in a quite high percentage, are with a person of the same race- I don't see the purpose of having a commercial focusing on a family that is "rare" as opposed to usual. I would assume that making a series of commercials highlighting various same race couples and families- Asian, Black, White, "Latino", etc. would make more sense in that more people could relate to those couples and families. Oh, well, what doesn't make sense to me could fill many libraries.
I think the man in the comercial is Richard T. Jones but I'm not 100 pct sure. If it is him it makes sence since he has a huge "fanclub" of white females. At least in Europe. He played in Amy's court. They are playing that tv serie for the 3rd time here. Lol

The child may represent my child being biracial but no that family on the Cherrios commercial in doesn't represent my family to me. I think that BM/WW and WM/BW couples are too different to represent one another. I don't a white woman with a black husband seeing a black wife with a white husband and immediately identifying with them.

Sales are probably up.
I find myself buying Cheerios becaus of the commercial.
And the little handful of people who didn't like the commercial created so much free publicity instead of just voting with their wallet and not buying the product.
Look at the you tube hits on that commercial just from reading and watching about it on some news reports.
Just look at this thread and think how many now have the munchies for Cheerios becaus of it. LOL!

It makes perfect sense. You underscore everything far to much. Do you understand that many people's way of thinking and some decisions are affected by what the media puts out.

Who cares what the media puts out? It's mostly advertising anyway.

Most sensible people think for themselves and make choices based on their own set of circumstances.

I absolutely agree. Very good and meaningful post. The media portrays things as good and bad and low and behold, the mindset of the culture shifts that way. The media is a propaganda machine that molds impressionable minds and therefore a cultures beliefs.
Blah, blah, blah!

The media does nothing more than REFLECT real life. If you don't like what you see, then turn off the TV and put down the computer and smart phone. Just because everything doesn't reflect your angry white male perspective doesn't mean it's propaganda.

I'm so sick of people complaining about the government, the media, the liberals, the universities -- EVERYTHING but themselves is at fault for their own misery. If that's the case then UNPLUG for a change, but we know you can't do that, because you cannot help but return to the African American Forum over and over again and again. For what? So you can continue to feed and empower this "propaganda machine" that you say is the cause of your problems. It's as if you contribute to your own self-made hell.

Oh the irony!
