 I was watching the news and saw the Honey Maid Graham cracker commercial and LOVED IT! It features a gay couple, interracial couple, single father, a father covered with tattoos, and a Military family. THIS is what America is made of, people who can be of different race, culture, religion and sexual preference and still be a GOOD family with great values.

In my opinion what makes a family is two people who love each other and their children. It isn't about someone sexual preference, color of their skin or for that matter what is on their skin but whats in their heart.

The sad part is there are still haters who think that gays should not be parents and because a man (or woman) is covered with tattoos they are seen as druggies (rockers and abusers) and unfit to be a good parent and those who feel that each culture should stick to their own.

I think that no matter how we evolve we will always have those who hate and feel they are right. Is it just fear to allow themselves to see the person as a human and not the negative they are taught?

Good for you Honey Maid because you didn't allow the haters to stop you from showing a good wholesome American family!! :)

That is awesome! What is especially ironic is that graham crackers were originally invented as a way to prevent masturbation. Same with corn flakes. It was thought that the blandness would "tame" the passionate urges in young men. Glad to see they have broadened their values :)
