Accompanied by a sad piano, this moving commercial is narrated by a middle-aged African-American man who says, "When I was young, my father taught me right from wrong. Color was something that came in a box. Hate only referred to vegetables.
"As I got older, I was told that these were childish thoughts and I saw for myself that, no matter what it said, none of us were really equal. Or the same." Images pass of blacks in the back of a bus and as shoeshiners.
"Depending upon what God you believed in, what color you were born with. What person you loved. You were labeled as being right or being wrong." A Hasidic Jew and a gay couple holding hands appear, followed by Ku Klux Klan members and burning flags.
"My father no longer lives. I am no longer a child. To my son... color is something that comes in a box. I wish he didn't have to grow up."
It is a good example of inclusiveness of gays as a threatened part of a larger society.
