'cism!



Overreaction? Perhaps, but one thing that has always bothered me about The Amazing Race, is the lack of sensitivity displayed by contestants, to the inhabitants of the countries they visit. 

Lack of English speaking ability is no reason to be rude or treat people like shit. YOU are foreigners in their country; show a little respect (yeah I'm looking at you Jaime and Cara).  Also, resorting to acting out old stereotypes is NOT the way to try to blend in, or show appreciation (Mark and Michael).

14 seasons, and it never fails to happen. A blemish on an otherwise fantastic show.
