I often post commercials that make me happy, or piss me off, or give me pause, or whatever. It's that time again.

Kudos to Audi, for making black females their target audience. No great fanfare. No great flashing neon signs screaming LOOK AT ME! Just a mom and daughter, living their lives, coming off as intelligent, articulate, well-off, and happy. You know, just like real black families.

And this one, the infamous Cheerios commercial. That also dares to show a loving, united, nuclear family that recognizes the changing face of American families.

I'm a vote with my pocketbook type 'o gal, and would love to throw my support behind both of these. That's not gonna happen anytime soon, given that I'm a long way out from being able to afford an Audi. But there are Cheerios in my pantry, even as we speak.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.
