so this commercial is being taken down and off of tv after Cheerios got complaints from people about how this commercial is promoting bi-racial families. as a child coming from a bi-racial family i’m actually astonished and disgusted. it’s 20 fucking 13 people, get a grip.

Wait what

What then can we all just spread this around online cause it’s pretty damn cute

I still don’t understand how people can elect a bi-racial president but complain about a bi-racial family in a Cheerios commercial. WTF America???

So I guess if a commercial has a one-race family they’re *promoting single race families* or something, right?

…y’know, I like what JC Penney did when their ad choices got backlash.

Hire Ellen Degeneres.  Get bitched at.  Put lesbian couple in Mother’s Day ad.  Get bitched at.  Put gay couple in Father’s Day ad.  All without a single comment.

I look forward to the next Cheerios biracial family.

An observation about OUAT…

Minor spoilers for 2x04.

For all that this show is about true love, and even though it’s been established that parent/child love is also true love, or at the very least important… I can count on one hand the number of times a parent has said the words “I love you” to their child.  The first was Emma to Henry, when she thought he was dead, when she broke the curse.  Regina said it to Henry shortly after.  The second was by Moe to Belle, as he was sending her off to have her memories erased against her will.  Those are the only ones I can think of.  (We have seen young Regina say “I love my mother” to Rumpel, and “Of course I love him” to Emma, and she said it to her father’s grave, but these weren’t said directly to the person.)

Snow and Charming never said it to Emma, not when she was a baby about to be put into the wardrobe, and not now that they remember.  Rumpel never said it to Bae.  Geppetto never said it to Pinnocchio (this is what first made me notice it, because if I was sticking my kid in a magic box, possibly never to be seen again, the one thing I would want to say is I LOVE YOU).  Emma said it to Henry only once (though that’s understandable, the girl has issues).  Jefferson never said it to Grace.  Charming’s mother never said it.  Granny never said it to Ruby.  Cora sure as hell never said it.  Yet all of the canon couples have said it to one another multiple times (Snow/Charming, Belle/Rumpel, Milah said it to Hook, etc etc).

It’s very clear that these parents DO love their children very much.  Yet they never say it, while romantic couples say “I love you” often, sometimes just for the sake of saying it.  I don’t know if the writers/producers are doing it on purpose or what the reason for it might be, but… it just strikes me as odd.  And bad, to be honest.  A lot of people complained in the first season that the show portrayed birth/natural parents as good, and step/adoptive parents as bad.  Obviously the show understands and addresses the importance of family and parent/child relationships.  And yet….

“How come he don’t want me, man?”

From what I’ve heard, Will Smith’s father actually left him. This wasn’t entirely scripted. Will went off on his own rant, and the hug at the end was genuine.

His character was just supposed to shrug off his dad leaving again and he starts to but then Will goes off script. That whole speech is coming entirely from him. The hug at the end is also genuine, actor to actor not character to character.

forever reblog.

reblog every fucking time

One of the few genuine moments of television history, and one of the few moments that really get to me.

one of the best sitcoms ever

My favorite story out of this is Malia, when she was 4, she had a little dance thing. Well, Michelle was gone that weekend so I’m taking her to ballet. And I get her in her little leotard and her little stuff. I did her hair, put it in a little bun.
We get to the dance studio and one of the mothers there right away comes up to Malia – she thinks she’s out of earshot of me and she says, ‘Sweetie, do you want me to redo your hair?’ And Malia who she’s 4 says, ‘Yes please, this is a disaster’ you know, she didn’t want to hurt daddy’s feelings.

President Obama talks about styling Malia’s hair - Black Girl with Long Hair

Oh my God I am dying of the cute.

As excited as we all are for a Rumbelle reunion, I’m also really excited for the prospect of a happy ending for Belle and her father in FTL. I don’t honestly believe he would have hurt her, unless the Evil Queen somehow manipulated him into it. The only scene with Belle and Maurice together communicates such understanding and affection to me that I believe his safety was a major factor in her decision to go with Rumple in the first place. That she would sacrifice everything to keep him safe says that, once upon a time, they were happy. And I hope in the end they will be again.
