This blog focuses on issues and solutions to racism, culture, cultural difference(s), and social injustice(s) for Black and Hispanic students as they develop in families, schools, and communities. RACE (Racism, Achievement, Change, Equity) is a forum for exposing injustices, but also sharing stories, examples, practices, ideas, theories, models, and research for change.

Biracism?? Cheerios under Attack

Inter-racial relationships are increasingly common in the U.S. As is racism! 1 in 12 marriages are between couples from a different racial/ethnic group.

See http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/16/interracial-marriage-stat_n_1280511.html

and other Census reports. Like it or not (and it seems like those brave and ignorant enough to share their polemic and racist beliefs do not like it), inter-racial marriages are here to stay — and legal. This viral reaction is but one more clear example that the U.S. is NOT post-racial.  And I hope the innocent child in the ad survives this evil attack.
