SACRAMENTO-

A new 30-second Cheerios ad, featuring an biracial family, has ignited a backlash that has forced the company to disable comments on YouTube.

The commercial, posted online Tuesday, has had hundreds of thousands of views. With those views came a flood of racist comments and a less-than-civil discourse that YouTube comments are sometimes known for.

Cheerios defended the ad in a statement sent to Gawker, saying, “Consumers have responded positively to our new Cheerios ad. At Cheerios, we know there are many kinds of families and we celebrate them all.”

    The most common technique used by anti-Whites to demoralize White people is to promote a racially brown future, BUT ONLY IN WHITE COUNTRIES.
    They haven't told the Black people in Africa that they have to be blended out of existence.
    They haven't told the Asian people that they have to be blended out of existence.
    It is ONLY White people that are targeted with this tactic and this agenda – It's genocide – White Genocide.
    That's why anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.
