Cheerios ad with interracial family gets slams but also support

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell discussed the topic in his Rewrite segment on Monday, describing the uglier comments as “the kind of racism you had every right to expect would be extinct in a country with a biracial president.”

During the segment, the Last Word host ate a mouthful of Cheerios and re-aired the commercial in support of the ad.

Just one more reason for me to love Lawrence O'Donnell.

Ok, now I thought he heard him say something about a wife in the last year but now I see you are right! I love Tamron! Good for them. I like both Ed and Larry, each in their own way.

And for the cutie-pie girl in the commercial, my own cutie-pie girl, and my cutie-pie president, all the folks who can't handle beautiful mixed-race kids of all ages can go to hell.
