I admit it. I walk the liberal line on a lot of issues.

But don’t pour politics on my Cheerios.

Cheerios this week previewed its Super Bowl ad, a sequel to the beautiful and surprisingly controversial commercial that aired last May featuring a family that looked like mine: white mom, black dad, mixed daughter. The first time around, the racist backlash grew so strong that Cheerios had to close its YouTube comments. Since then, we’ve seen more mixed families in ads, and the new Cheerios commercial racked up more than 1 million views the first day with no signs of hate.

And then came MSNBC and the now notorious tweet:

“Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” read a tweet MSNBC posted on Wednesday.
