I'll bet you're right, GemWolf, it will work like a charm. Sadly, race relations still causes quite a bit of drama (that means good reality TV) in
I was channel surfing yesterday and came across a show that was talking about racism in TV. Their claim was that black people were always kicked off
the reality shows first or early. Interestingly, the REASONs they were kicked off were not discussed in depth. One black man slapped a woman, one
started a physical fight with the other cast members, and so on. So even though there were legitimate reasons to vote off and kick off these black
members, this show made it seem like it was because of their race...
On the other hand, I'd like to keep an open mind about this. It's possible that people will just see the different Survivor 'tribes' as people. We
can hope, can't we?
The idea for this actually came from the criticism that Survivor was not ethnically diverse enough."
Just thinking out loud:
Would it have been more appropriate for them to divide them up differently? one black per team, one white, and so on? That's racist, too. I rather
wish they had had 5 of each race and drawn straws... That's true diversity. But yeah, this current division can only pit the races against each
