Now that you've seen the first episode of Survivors, what do you think ?
The Chicago Sun-Times TV critic, Doug Elfman, had an interesting perspective.
Predictably, "The Caucasians" talked about race almost none of the time, a sure sign they live as members of a comfortable majority, Elfman noted.
I had good intentions, but I missed the first episode.
I was in the audience at the Symphony Center cheering on Sun-Times Society Editor, Lisa Lenoir. Formerly a fashion writer, Lisa made her debute as a model in the annual fashion bash put on by the Women's Board of the Rush University Medical Center. Being invited to participate is seen as a great honor. Frankly, I was disappointed that so few blacks, Asians and Latinos were on the stage.
The glaring lack of minorities in this 80-year-old Chicago tradition made me appreciate of the "Survivor" experiment even more. At least Mark Burnett is giving viewers some diversity.
