This past weekend has shown us that we’re not where we need to be when it comes to race relations and equality in this country. There is much more progress to be made. But if we can find hope in anything, it’s the children. In many ways, we can see that the next generation will be better than we are today and that’s inspiring. In the video below children, 13 and under, react to not only the cheerios commercial but also to the negative criticism that the ad received because it featured an interracial couple.

See what the children had to say about the ad, the racist comments and their message to biracial children who might also be experiencing discrimination.
