As much as some people would like to believe we live in a post-racial society, we’re reminded daily that racism is still alive and well in American adults. From outrage over same-sex marriage to an unbalanced justice system, this country has got a long way to go in terms of considering everyone equal.

But what if we saw the world through the eyes of children? Based on this adorable video showcasing kids and their reaction to Cheerios’ “controversial” ‘Just Checking’ commercial, the world would be a far better place.

In the video, a group of children ranging from the ages of 7 to 13, were asked to share their thoughts on the cereal commercial that sparked outrage for showing an interracial married couple and their biracial daughter. The result: they saw an adorable little girl and her parents. That’s it. Not one cared that the mother was white and the father was black, and when it was pointed out to them, many of them asked “What’s the big deal? It’s just a Cheerios commercial.”

We could all learn a thing or two from our youth, don’t you think?

    • And when these kids grow up, they will deal with race and have a view. When you are that young, you see things different until you grow up.

      • To me, the Trayvon/Zimmerman and the internet comments when people think they are in hiding are PROOF of how America really is, not children who are being interviewed.

    Nice house, so it’s reasonable to believe that this man has reached a certain level of financial success. As repeated examples prove, black men tend to migrate toward white women at that point in their lives. Simple facts Peeps

    • And then that bring up the hate that blacks have towards each other. Black men and women hating each other. It is still hate.
