Old Navy ran a new advertisement online over the weekend featuring a multiracial family. This was apparently too much for the bigoted among us who decided to register their discontent online and promise never to grace the doors of Old Navy again.
In fact, they featured more than one multiracial family – the NERVE!

Well clearly this was just too much. This travesty needed to be addressed! And so it was…
My family and I will never step into an @OldNavy store again. This miscegenation junk is rammed down our throats from every direction.

And it goes on…and on…and on – we could fill this page endlessly with these responses. But that would overdo the stomach-turning.
Well, Old Navy, you’ve really gone and done it this time. You’ve included in your advertisements images of family consisting of more than one color! HORROR!
Is it surprising that LGBT people are fighting for recognition as human beings when many in this country still haven’t gotten beyond Loving v. Virginia?
