Survivor: Race War

I'd really love to know who decided this was a good idea. "I know! Let's take television's most popular reality show, and turn it into the prison riot episode of 'Oz'"! If it really works, they can do it by religion next time- I can't wait for the Jews vs. Muslims immunity challenge.

Isn't this the sort of idea that ends the careers of every top network executive, while causing a racial discrimination class action suit, to boot?

No. Way.

I don't know how I feel about watching now. It seems like such an absurd idea and so un-PC that they could catch some serious hell. if one group throttles another, there's going to be a runor mill running about racism, sexist, was it rigged. I don't know that I want to encourage this kind of bad move. I mean, they always did throw in a token minority here or there, which I found odd, but really. Casting based solely on race? Yo, that is wack.

Les Moonves has completely lost it to allow this!

I don't see what the big deal is, people are too sensitive in this country

I bet I know which team Daniel Carver will be rooting for. And no way will the producers let them win.
