Interracial Cheerios Commercial

There's a commercial out which has really made a lot of people upset:

The "discussion" under the video became so bad that General Mills shut down the comments under the video. The discussion has resulted in an interesting Internet meme being passed around:

Interracial, mulatto, Cheerios girl

I seriously doubt the issue has to do with parents not matching. I read a long discussion on amnesty/immigration in which Mexican males were deliberately taunting anti-amnesty American men by saying, "We're here taking all of your white women, and there isn't anything you can do about it!" In the '80s, it wasn't uncommon for black rappers to say that white women were a prize and having them is a status symbol - particularly blondes. By contrast, black women in America have twice the difficulty finding mates as white women (according to a Yale study). If the woman in the commercial had been black and the man white, I doubt it would have caused much of a ruckus. What's gotten under the racists' skins and damaged their fragile little egos is that a black man has taken a white woman. Had it been a white man with a black woman, it wouldn't have made even the faintest blip on anyone's radar.
