    This article annoys me because it's just a rehash of what was printed several weeks ago. They don't even mention Spencer or Amanda as culprits.

    This is not a perfect world and it never will be. We all know that racism is out there in every color and size. I have experienced it many times. For the most part it is something that one should just act like they have not heard it.

    If we can continue to keep commentary strictly on the letter, this thread can live to a nice old age.

    Seems odd to say something now. Maybe preemptively getting something out there before the end of this week and the racist person gets a minority out of the house?

    Just seems odd to say something now while it's mostly blown over as far as bigger media streams are concerned. Why bring attention to yourself?

    But I agree with what he says, they shouldn't do anything.

    Maybe a CYA move. That American Idol discrimination lawsuit has gotten publicity lately (I never gave two sh*ts about that show). Now CBS is putting the "proper" statements out on public record to cover their own asses.

    He had the chance to make a comment a few weeks back when TMZ found Julie and Les on the street going to their car. Les kind of stepped out of the frame to get in the car while Julie spoke to the camera. At least he said something now, late is better than never.

    It's a PR move and great for publicity and ratings.

    BB15 is a social experiment were you put a few "minorities" in a house full of white guests and watch the interactions and behavior of the guests. It's an awesome concept.


    It's simply fascinating watching Helen navigate the house and interact with these people who labeled her a Cat-eating, karate-master, math-expert, rice-serving, fingernail-painting-chinaman who needs her eyes knocked straight....all the more fascinating considering that the host of this show is an Asian-American.

    This CBS C.E.O should be applauded for having the guts to show live uncensored feeds were us scientists and sociologists can study human nature and pack mentality amongst people of different cultures and backgrounds.

    The most brilliant part of the social-experiment is how despite Aaryn being exposed for her behavior America has rallied behind her and in a Shakesperean twist Arayn as HOH gets to put the people she "trusts the least" (Howard & Candace) on the block!

    Utterly fascinating to watch and most definitely worthy of the CBS letter from the CEO.

    While making them dress up as giant Strawberries and clean honey off each other in bikinis.

    Can't have a proper social experiment without that.
