Racism on the Right, Part 2

Stupidly the new season of Survivor has teams divided by race/ethnicity. You'd think that normal folks would be walking on eggshells. It isn't difficult to spot the disaster waiting to happen. But our favorite druggy, Rush, dashes in where angels ...

"We've been looking at this here amongst ourselves, and our early money is going on the Hispanic tribe, providing they stay unified." ... " because these people have shown a remarkable ability, ladies and gentlemen, to cross borders, boundaries -- they get anywhere they want to go. They can do it without water for a long time. They don't get apprehended, and they will do things other people won't do."

"The Asian -- the Asian-American tribe probably will outsmart everybody, but will that help them in the ultimate survival contest? Intelligence is one thing, but raw, native understanding of the land and so forth -- this is probably why the Native Americans were excluded, because they were at one with the land here, and they probably would have an unfair advantage."

people at CBS, behind the scenes, who just have heard about this, sort of scratch their heads -- say, "What the hell are we doing? What are we going to do -- the swimming portion, how is that going to be fair?"

See it all here.
