I dont know, is anyone else bothered by what CBS is doing? I'm not having a problem with it but was wondering if I was in the minority.

Not only that, but I have never seen a survivor form alliences along races. Against the sexes, yes. And you are right, this will only last a week or two.

I don't find it offensive at all.  Why don't they protest last season's first tribal twist, I could have seen everyone saying that it promotes sexism and ageism.  Now this season is promoting Racism?  I don't see it. 

If anything, it's adding more of the races into a reality show.  In previous seasons, they would just have one male and one female african-american, and same for asians and latinos. I think it's just saying that every race has an equal shot at the grand prize now.

I don't find it offensive either. But I don't believe in ethninticity what so ever so I guess it wouldn't offend me.

My personal opinion I don't know why we faction ourselves into races. We are all humans. Who cares that our biological appearance and culture are different?

But that is just me.

So in other words I don't see any twist in this Survivor.

when they first announced they were gong to seperate the tribes by race i was thinking the same thing they only leave the tribes seperated for a few weeks before they combine them into 2 new tribes.

I still like when the let them get settled and form alliances then go and mix up the tribes i think that is always fun.  :)

I want them to stay together for a couple of weeks though. Unlike in Exile Island where they were in a tribe of 4 for 3 days then they switched it up. Keep the schtick going for an episode or two

Good Grief, the polititians are purdy dang bored to be rallying against Survivor when there;s no justificaton for it!!  They are typical politians...making a big deal out of nothing just to have something else to complain about.  :groan:  I'm sure they must have important stuff to deal with!!!   (:;)  :knuckles:  :furious: {{{}
The least they could do is wave the American flag  :flag: & rally FOR CBS for always including several races in the show.  If polititians cared, they'd do some research into Survivor history and find out it has never been racial...no way.  They could also ask cbs what the deal is, instead of A$$uming it will be playing races against each other!! 

From the FWIW department...

the only thing i am hoping for is that we get more people winning things this time.  it does get quite old when the same tribe/person wins everything.  Although last season i was voting for terri and he did need to win everything just to stay safe.

I hope so to. It got really boring during Palau when Koror kept beating Ulong. It just got boring and it seemed rigged.

I expect a full report, Trevor.

The politicians organizing this are just trying to get their names in the paper.  It's absurd that they have nothing better to do with their time.

Very true. Well I guess that is what they live for. They just sit at home and find things to get pissed off about.

Pathetic, but true, Trevor and TannerB.  :( :'(
Those politicians should be glad we live where people of all races can be together on an island & work together to win challenges and play the great game of Survivor.  :jam:

Well you can tell that these politicians have nothing better to talk about.

Before this Survivor they argued that ethnical representation lacked on Survivor.

Then for this Survivor they got 5 people from 4 different races on the show and the politicians said "What the hell are you doing that is raciest." Pull the show.

Well they gave you enough ethnical representation so quit complaining.

Well really at this point there is nothing they can do because its already been filmed and finished what are they suspose to do now?  redo everything.  people just need to get a life.  if they dont like it they dont have to watch it.  there are so many other issues that are much more pressing that could be addressed

They think they should pull the season. Yeah right. Like CBS is going to spend thousands and millions of dollars to make a season of Survivor then just pull the whole thing. They are going to show it regardless and prey that they hit this out of the park but there is no chance in hell they are going to pull it.
