The newest season of Survivor hasn’t even begun and controversy is already present. The opening of the show will divide the contestants into racial groups. In the past, the groups have been divided at random, as selected by the survivors themselves, and by age and sex.
So tell me, how is dividing it by race any more controversial than dividing by age or sex? I don’t think that this was necessarily the smartest thing that CBS could have done (and their recent sponsorship struggle evidences this, but it is hardly something worth making a big fuss over.
In all liklihood, all that this will prove is that no race is superior to any other and the teams will be mixed up within the first few weeks anyway.
Am I under-reacting to this? Is under-reacting a word?
