It’s baffling and sadly unsurprising to me that people actively choose to voice their concerns over race-mixing, as if it’s on the same plain as beastiality. Yeah, creating adorable children is horrible. (I’m rolling my eyes so hard, even typing that sarcastically…)

What seems to be a mix of blatant racism and trolling has made for a deplorable and unnecessary reaction to the advertisement. The handler of Old Navy’s Twitter the company’s spokespeople have to speak of the ad’s controversy.
