Best Thing Ever! Watch Kids React to the Controversial Cheerios Commercial

The next generation puts racist crazy internet bullies to shame

If you read any of the hateful, bigoted YouTube comments on the adorable Cheerios commercial, which non-chalantly featured a mixed race family, you probably wondered what this world is coming to.

Here’s the antidote to that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach. This sweet video from weekly video series Kids React (via Global Grind) shows kids’ no-big-deal reaction to the commercial -- and then their surprised and horrified responses upon hearing that people actually had a problem with it. Our favorite part: the spunky little girl who implores us to “just think with your heart.”

If these kids are the future, maybe we’ll be all right after all.
