Did anyone see it? I did. I personally think it was wrong to divide the tribes by race and CBS isn't going to hear the end of it. It was, well, bad. Just... bad.

Didn't watch it. Obvious ratings grabs are a turn off for me. Pretty sure they've jumped the shark.

Best,

I saw it, basically normal survivor with a predisposition for racial stereotypes. When I heard about the idea, I thought they were nuts, but in terms of sucking in viewers, it's genious.

I doubt anything very much will come of it, in the end (except higher ratings).

So tell me Eman, which of the racial groups represented do you feel are at a disadvantage due to lower intelligence or lack of abilities based on race?

I bet, before the end, they trade players so that no one race wins.

I will never understand the mass appeal of the back-stabbing, in-your-face, lie-cheat-&-steal, civility sucks formats of "Pro" wrestling, Grand Theft Auto or Survivor. And we wonder why our kids are out targeting one another in record numbers. Why not just bring back the gladiatorial blood sports and be done with it?

Here's my take on survivor's new season and the people who say it's "wrong"...

ANYONE who is upset over the current season dividing by race is either A) ignorant or B) a hypocrite.

In past season's they've divided by AGE - old farts against youth. Hey guys - that's AGE discrimination.

They've divided by sex - girls v. boys. BTW - that's gender discrimination.

And now they're dividing by race. How is this different than their other episodes?

Before one jumps on the "racism" bandwagon, one should look at the big picture.

Those who are protesting now, but not before are only quietly saying that age and gender discrimination is okay, but race is not.

And the bottom line is this - it's a "realtiy" (cough) TV show. Who cares?

I'm with Robert. I think it would help of people understood what racism was, it is very clear they don't. The simple fact is 90% of the people on the show are culturally the same and race isn't a factor. I pick my favorite based on what girl is the best looking.

Girls with breast enhancements and without.
Men and Women who are gay and those who are not.
(Bi-Sexuals have to find their own format.)
Muslims who will blow themselves up and those who won't.
(Guess who's left in the end)
Those with excess earwax and those who who hose regularly.
Those who watch crap TV and those who do not.
(sign me up)
Those who know magic and those who are amazed.
Men who are afraid of Pelicans and those who eat them.

Oh...and Steve V:

Steve V" A brilliantly insightful response!

For the most part humans are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to unaided flying and fish capture and so may well face a serious challenge from the pelicans.

I don't judge people by their ethnicity. I judge people as idividuals. So going by that philosophy, the caucasian group might not make it very far because they had some internal disputes, a guy already on Exile Island, and to top that off a very dumb move was made which lost the group two chickens.

My pal Jose is the best chicken wrangler in the world. He then butchers them for his family in Costa Rica. He's one of the most hard working indivuals I know. and he's my best friend . He doesn't mind the survivor thing. If you are all stuffed up with the racial stero types listin to Carlos Mencia and you will understand that were all treated eqully.

I love Costa Rica! Use to hang in Limon (pre earthquake). I contend only those with a hint of racism in 'em are calling it racist.

Do you folks really take television that seriously?
Didn't every contestant choose to enter the "competition" with those script guidelines written into the contract?
Have you heard the contestants or their family members cried foul?

It's only an issue, because you choose to make it an issue.
POOF!
