‘Survivor’ Brings Diversity to Its Cast & Segregates Them August 24, 2006

Posted by newsfittopost in communities of color, entertainment.


CBS has an insulting and backward plan for its next season of Survivor. The reality show will answer critics who claim the show had no diversity by making this year’s diverse cast particularly noticeable: it will divide up its participants into four tribes based on race. There will be a Black tribe, Asian-American tribe, Latino/a tribe and white tribe. The groups will battle it out in competitions that will essentially place race against race.

CBS has decided to make up for its nearly all-white casts of the past by imposing segregation this season. What the hell is CBS thinking?
