This is my new favorite commercial on TV, for obvious reasons. The little girl is cute as a button, and reminds me of…I don’t know…somebody.

But if you’ve been following the blogosphere, you know that the commercial set off some less-than-intelligent debates and racial slurs in the comments on its YouTube page, ultimately forcing Cheerios to turn the commenting feature off.

Jemar Tisby nails the racism issue in his helpful blog post, and reminds the believing community that the church still has a long way to go to see racial reconciliation become a reality.

So what do you think? Cute breakfast commercial? Or the most important conversation of the day? (see what I did there?)
