Oh really? Look, I don't watch reality TV--well, except that I do -- in fits and starts -- whenever I get control of the remote and find myself alone -- that is to say I have seen episodes of (but don't "follow" Project Runway, Survivor, and the Real Housewives of Atlanta on purpose. My A.I. addiction is not included as reality TV.)
Tonight it was America's Next Top Model. Love it when I see it except today. In honor of being in Hawaii for the shoot and for the number one Hapa -- the President: she's got the contestants potraying "hapa" with different cultures. She's painted some of the models brown and is playing "tribal" music in some of the sequences. One contestant was told she was only portraying the "Russian" side of her "hapaness." I mean really.
Would she do the same thing if they were in Kenya and said: now we will do a photo shoot of you as a black Kenyan? No.
Maybe I am making too big a deal of this --what do you think?
