Since the demographics in this country are changing, and there are more admittedly bi-racial Americans, that commercial showed a significant slice of American reality that has been brushed over for too long. The negative reactions say everything that needs to be said about those haters, and only reflects badly on them.

The reaction to this add proves most people haven't evolved beyond their animalistic, base instincts of 1000's of years ago...flesh orientated instincts...

In some ways, animals are actually more evolved than humans, in that they don't define each other soley by color...

Nor do animals, pets, like or dislike their owners, based on color...

So in some ways, our pets are more socially evolved than us so called humans...

Animals, at least your pet or pets, define you by your behavior...

humans could learn a lot from that...

Don't care what you drive, if the interior of your Mercedes is made of leather...

Most humans still act, behave, and react like primitive life forms...

The narrative of this country is its constant struggle to reconcile its lofty, humane ideals with things that don't always portray it in a favorable light, as well as its efforts toward self-correction. That's a much more complex and interesting narrative than the one that sanitizes everything. As I've said in the first post, mixed marriages and bi- or mult-racial children are a reality in this country, and their numbers are growing.

I have no issues with yours, either. No matter how well or poorly our posts are judged, the fact that there are those who disagree with them does nothing at all to alter the realities of changing demographics in this country, along with racially mixed marriages and racially mixed children. People ignore realities at their own risk.

What if these "pure white" folks are not interested in maintaining white supremacy and decide to marry or date non-whites? That's a very real possibility. Besides, very few African-Americans are 100% African. Genetically, we have different degrees of mixtures among us, and I would be willing to bet that it is just as true of people who live as Caucasians.

It would be quite hilarious, because it would go a long way toward proving that the "white is right" nonsense perpetuated in this country would be meaningless to a number of so-called "pure" whites from elsewhere.

When you have overpowering military might on your side, you can play the "White is right" or "Chinese is right" or "__________ is right" (fill in the blank) as best you can.

When you are from a relatively powerless white country - the Ukraine for example - then the dynamics of power, control and influence quickly change.

That said, I wonder whose side military might will be on if the current trend toward changing demographics persists.

The socioeconomic elite (1%ers) will naturally retain military might on behalf of their own interests.

However, I predict the faces behind these interests will be increasingly diverse in terms of color as more and more millionaires and billionaires of color (especially Asian ones) emerge in U.S. society.
