Survivor goes racial

On the new season of Survivor, the contestants will be divided into four tribes by ethnicity. That means blacks, whites, Latinos and Asians in separate groups. That's what I said.

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.

Hey! Maybe next season they can divide tribes by Muslim, Catholic and Jewish...good times
