Survivor: Cook Islands

New 'Survivor' divides groups by race




37 minutes ago


Get ready for a segregated "Survivor." Race will matter on the upcoming season of the CBS show as contestants will be divided into four tribes by ethnicity. That means blacks, whites, Latinos and Asians in separate groups.

The announcement was made on CBS' Early Show. Host Jeff Probst says the idea "actually came from the criticism that 'Survivor' was not ethnically diverse enough." He says the twist fits in perfectly with what "Survivor" does, saying the show is "a social experiment. And this is adding another layer to that experiment." Probst says contestants had mixed reactions to the racial divisions.

This time the new Survivors are stranded on the Cook Islands in the South Pacific. The castaways include a police officer, a heavy metal guitarist, an attorney and a nail salon manager. The new season of Survivor debuts September 14th.

LOL can't believe this idea actually made it through. Seems like the show just wants to be in the news.

That's awesome! I guarantee with wont last longer than two weeks, just like the age/sex division last time. It really is an interesting idea though, or maybe just for people interested in socoiology and psychology. Seeing whether racial 'alliances' form and last throughout the game is kind of interesting, but I doubt it will be all it's cracked up to be.

Does that mean we'll get to see more than two non-whites on Survivor @ one time?

I don't mind straight people as long as they act gay in public!

I don't know it seems a little bias.
I haven't watched Survivor in years but they still give the survivors rice to eat right?
I'm just saying we all know whose best with rice.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

since when have things been equal... you know there are going to give the black people no food, water or fire to start, give the white folks butler service, and then when the black people ask "umm, excuse. whats going on here, this seems like racism" this board is going to light up with "why are these people always using the race card"

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"
