The Pale Horse


This season of the reality show "Survivor" is going to be participating in what they call "a whole new kind of social experiment". They are splitting up the 20 survivors into 4 teams and having the teams compete against each other. The teams are segregated by noneother than color. 5 white people, 5 black people, 5 asians and 5 hispanics. I saw some people interviewed about this idea and a lot of the minorities said that they would be rooting for their respective ethnic groups. So, I guess I should hope that the white race completely oppresses all of the others. Why do people feel allegiance and pride toward something they have no control over?

Great, yet another reason to hate reality TV.

I have absolutely no to your question, other than that it is natural, if perhaps at least slightly illogical. (I say this as someone born in Wisconsin who is therefore a Brewers fan.)
