I saw this today and thought it was cute. It's sad though that people just cannot accept people  that love each other regardless of their color, homosexuality, or any other difference. Sadly my SO and I have experienced people who aren't so accepting of an interracial couple.

I have come across many a racist ass face who say they don't care if interracial people get to get together/get married but they shouldn't have children. They say this because they are aware of how much minorities are shit on, so why bring a child into the mix? Not really realizing they are playing a part in the shitting on. 

That mindset is fucked up something hard core.

My nieces and nephews who are the results of interracial marriages are the most beautiful people I know.

I never understood people's issues with it to me its not a big deal. Dh had a normal childhood and he is biracial. I think people will always have something to say but in the end if you are happy that is all that matters.

I couldn't care less who marries whom. If one of my sons came home with a woman of another race the only thing I'd care about is if they loved each other and with mutual respect. If they don't have that then why would they bring a child into the mix.

I am black and my husband is Italian.We have two incredible kids(mixed race) we are so proud of.We dont understand the issue some have with IR couples,no more than they understand why we dont.

We as a family are too busy being happy than dealing with any hate.When we first saw this commercial we didnt even notice it was an interracial family.This is just everyday life for us:)

Kids are innocent...

Racism is not born,its taught.

Mixing races does seem to produce pretty offsrping. Most of the time. I went to high school with a girl who was half Japanese half German and she was ridiculously pretty. Still is.

I don't think there is anything wrong with interracial couples.

 I thought this commercial was cute..I've seen other interracial couples on commercials as well. People need to get over themselves..if a couple is happy-let them be happy

I think people make it a huge deal. They look for people to stare and seek to find validity in things being said over the internet to make it seem as though theres a strong hate for people in IRR. 

Im black my SO is white, honestly no one gives a damn. 

The only people who comment are those who see me with my child and make ignorant comments about her beauty and mixed children.

Mixed kids are not the prettiest children, they are not any more special than other children. They are just children. My daughter is not beautiful because she is moxed, she is beautiful cause she has a hot mom.

End of rant and story. Putting soap box away now.

You can see the ignorance on the internet and claim no one accpets your relationship, or you can choose to ignore it and accept it for what it is.
