New York -- The makers of Cheerios continue to run a commercial that features a mixed-race family, but disabled the comments posted under the commercial on YouTube, last week.

The Commercial features a young girl asking her white mother about the heart health aspects of Cheerios, before dumping the box of cereal on her sleeping, black father.

The commercial once again puts the spotlight on America's feelings on mixed-race couples and families even though as of 2009, there were nearly 2.5 million interracial married couples.
