The Amazing Racial Profile

anyone else sit through the premier of "The Amazing Race" last night? i just thought it was funny, because they always seem to have the token black team on this (and other) "reality" shows. so when they introduced this season's, thier last name just happened to be "Black". now im not a racist or anything, but when the editor cut to this family, and old Phil Kehogan or whatever the fuck his name is says "Meet the Black Family" i just had to laugh. it totally sounded to me like phil was breaking kayfabe as it were, and giving you the inside scoop on the casting process for that show. like he might as well have said "meet this season's black family....the blacks". just a potentially humorous observation.

It was painfully funny in our house last night. Every family was caucasian except for The Blacks. I mean you can't even talk about it without sounding like Strom Thurmond.

And then they are the first one out of the show too.

I'm sure there was a producer going "Whew! At least we got rid of the Blacks."

I'm secretly hoping that the Aiollo family follows through and changes their name to The Wops.

how about at the end when the host says
"Black family, you are eliminated from the race."
it was like an episode of the Chapelle Show...
