In this June 16, 2011 file photo, boxes of Cheerios are shown in a store in Akron, N.Y. Cheerios is standing by the fictitious biracial family featured in their latest Heart Healthy campaign, which reflects a black-white racial mix uncommon in commercials today. The 30-second ad, featuring a black dad, white mom and biracial child, produced enough vitriol on YouTube that Cheerios requested the comments section be turned off. (AP Photo/David Duprey, file)
