Survivor: Out race? Out of their minds?

Posted on Thu, Aug 24, 2006 at 2:14 PM

Honestly.

CBS annouces that next season's Survivor is going to divide the tribes by race. My god, what a fantastic idea. Finally, an answer to the age-old question: which race really is superior? I can't wait to find out.

Fortunately, host Jeff Probst offers some Sociological context:

"I think it's very natural to assume that certain groups are going to have audience members rooting for them simply because they share ethnicity. At the end of the day, I think it will come down to what it always comes down to: who do I like?"

Yeah! For example, I'm white... so obviously, I like other white people. Right? Is that was CBS is getting at?

Feck.
