That's how I read it, also.

I understand your argument, but I passionately disagree. Race has to be the touchiest subject of any, and also the most misunderstood.

Aren't we all "people of color?"

Unless of course a group of international scientists have gathered around and have ultimately decided that white is no longer a color.

For as many people here who say they won't watch this season of Survivor, I know just as many who will watch it for the first time or start watching it again. It's a ratings ploy and it will work, right wrong or otherwise.

I was going to start watching it again with the kids but I really don't think O want my kids watching race against race.

i've never missed a single episode of survivor since the show began.

here's my thought.

if the people who are actually ON the show don't care about being divided into races, why should anyone else?

How do you know they don't care?
And they are playing for $1 million dollars.
People will do all types of things for that amount of cash.

Then they shouldn't have a basis for complaint later on.

This sounds incredibly stupid to me, but then I don't watch the show either way.

Ahhh, watching liberals in a quandry, my favorite pass time.

Look, everyone knows there are differences between races, there are strengths and there are weaknesses. There's nothing inherently wrong with examining them; putting them up one against the other. It's your own damn arrogance that you believe people less intelligent than you (which is everyone that doesn't agree with you) will use the results of the show as an excuse to deport illegal immigrants, burn crosses, and uh, copy the asian kid's math test.

It's an interesting experiment, not even going to be going on for the majority of the show, is no different than pitting men vs women, and will not make this country or any country any more or less racist than it already is.

Unclench.

This isn't examining any differences - 4 people of each race is statistically insignificant. It's a ratings ploy. There are also probably large variations among the contestants as well anyway. So it won't prove anything. The men vs. women thing is well established - do you watch women's sports?

I couldn't agree more. That's why I think this is all such a total over reaction.

I'm scratching my head, also. I do believe that's the first time I've ever been called a liberal.

It's your own ridiculousness that makes you think that any of us are coming to that conclusion. All we're saying is that pitting race vs. race is a stupid idea, because it is sure to stir up feelings of race superiority. And what good can come of that?

And by the way, I'm someone who is probably much more conservative than you.

They will eventually vote people off and mix up the groups anyway.. making it, in essence, races working together for a greater good.
OK, now i'm putting my own liberal spin on it.
