Cheery-Hos

I present below the embarrassing and uncomfortable video of an MSNBC interview with Grace Colbert, the chimpette from the interracial Cheerios commercial. The interviewer struggles to get Grace to speak, leading to the most dreaded sound in television - silence. Meanwhile, her befuddled, panicky father pokes the child in desperation, and her mother smiles maniacally/psychotically. What follows the child's silence is a meandering anti-racist exposition from the father who warns "Look out America, because this is just reality." During his exposition, the mother's bizarre facial grimaces leave me wondering if she is mentally unhinged - in addition to being a skunk-headed senior citizen that looks more like the kid's grandma than mother.


Altogether, I really don't have a problem with the interview, or the existence of this biracial family. They seem like decent, down-to-earth people. However, they are being used to push an agenda, and they are perfectly comfortable with the idea that they are now the standard for the new normal. However, they are delusional. Compared to high-profile celebrity miscegenators like Heidi Klum and Seal, this couple barely registers an impact on the global perpetuation of the brown-utopia interracial coupling is supposed to bring about.
