race baiting on "survivor"

I've never watched Survivor, so I don't really get how it works, but I know it's a long contest divided by teams, and this season, the teams or "tribes" will apparently be DIVIDED BY RACE.

There will be 4: black, white asian and hispanic

I think this is incredibly irresponsible of CBS. It's just ugly and an obvious attempt to stir the race pot. Gee, why don't they just go all the way and have Hezballoh tribe vs. Israelis. Or get two of the warring groups in Darfur to field "tribes"

sheesh.

Hmm. I don't know how I feel about it. May be better than our usual strategy of ignoring the fact that race and ethnicity are important components of our identities and how we relate to others. Lately I've started to think maybe stirring the pot is better than treating the pot as invisible.

I don't know about you, but I would conspire against the Jews.

I think it's a bloody awful idea. We have enough tribal problems as it is. Why stoke the fire?

I had some thoughts on this but they were too long for comments...so I posted them on my blog. :)
