    "I was called the N-word": Black Survivor all-stars reveal racism behind the scenes

    For the 18 years since he competed on Survivor: Marquesas, Sean Rector yearned to provide a forum for Black reality stars to speak out about their treatment while filming, and their portrayal on screen....

    Rector finally brought his vision to life on Wednesday when he helped fellow Survivor alum and podcast host Rob Cesternino gather a panel of twelve Black Survivor players for a Zoom video chat and recording of Rob Has A Podcast. Cesternino and his co-host Teresa “T-Bird” Cooper (Africa, season 3) were joined by Rector; Ramona Gray Amaro (Borneo, season 1); Clarence Black (Africa, season 3); Ted Rogers Jr (Thailand, season 5); Rory Freeman (Vanuatu, season 9); Jolanda Jones (Palau, season 10); Sherea Lloyd (China, season 15); Phillip Sheppard (Redemption Island, season 22 and Caramoan, season 26); Sabrina Thompson Mitchell (One World, season 24); Julia Carter (Edge Of Extinction, season 38); and the first two of Survivor’s four Black winners, Vecepia Towery (Marquesas, season 4) and Earl Cole (Fiji, season 14).

    Over 2 hours and 15 minutes, the group discussed how racism and racial bias affect Black contestants’ entire Survivor experience. “I’m not complaining. I’ve been Black all my life,” says Jolanda Jones. “But I’m telling you, it starts before, it’s on the island, it’s afterward.” Her comments were echoed by Earl Cole: “We go on this adventure just like everybody else, but we don’t even go with the same freedom because we’re carrying something else. And that’s part of our game, and it sucks that we have to do that. So when we win or get to the end, man, that is a testament that we actually had to be another person to be accepted, once again, to make it all the way to the end. And then most of the time we get voted out first or second anyway. Why? Because we look different? I don’t know. Who knows what it is? Oh yeah, racism.”

    I didn't watch the show but I can believe them.

    I remember watching Endurance (Discovery Kids/NBC).

    It lasted 6 years.

    The first season the black kids made it to the final four and a black girl was co-winner.

    The other seasons...it felt like they were TRYING to get rid of the black kids as fast as they could. Especially season 2 with Scooter.

    Although in the final season a black girl won.

    I found this post about a mini comic about tropes to avoid or be careful about using when creating black and indigenous characters. Examples include the mammie, dark-skinned blonde, stoic savage and colorism.

    Not sure what's going through Terry Crew's head these days...

    Of all the criticism you bring against BLM or the protests, he's really going to run with this "black supremacy" thing?

    I honestly don’t know where he’s coming from with the stuff he’s saying. His statements seem to be indirectly going against the protest. Between his earlier tweet and his refusal to defend Gabrielle Union when she experienced racism on AGT, Crews seems to be trying too hard to maintain his standing with the white community.

    Everyone knows what triggered the protests and what BLM has asked for has been pretty clear. Why Crews keeps going to the “black supremacy” thing when that’s not even being asserted is quite bizarre.

    Yeah, that's kinda what I thought. But what's funny is, who does he think he has to suck up too? BLM has gotten a lot of white support right now, corporation are (performatively if not in reality) supporting the struggle against racism, and even white conservatives who are against the riots can admit that George Floyd was murdered. It's like he doesn't want white folks mad at him but most white folks actually support the cause to one degree or another ( or at least the people who would hire him do).

    I have no problems with criticizing any movements, but this black supremacy thing aint it. It is a non issue.

    I think there is a fear of if you give in to this so-called black supremacy thing-things will get worst based on the state of black run or majority cities like Baltimore or Detroit. Or a ton of cases of reverse discrimination towards whites.

    The thinking you will see black versions of Trump or guys liek Shawn King get into power and really screw things up.

    I don't know who he is trying to make feel better. because there have been non-blacks who have always felt the same way about some of the topics black folks have bought up.

    The reason why change has been so slow is because folks have some type of support to defend them or get them into power or refuse to look at both sides.


    As we have seen in comics-it's okay to have toxic men in comics, harass POC, women and LGBTQ & bully an extended cut of a film. But a black storm trooper, Riri Williams and so on is an issue that warrant fit throwing.

    He's a shill. There's more I could say but it would not be appropriate for this forum.

    The thing I don't understand is it was Black people who supported him when he came out about being sexually harassed by that white exec. Then he turns around and complains about so-called Black supremacy. This while Black people die with impunity in the United States and worldwide. It's insulting but sadly there are upper class Black people who are more concerned about getting in good with white people then anything else. It's pathetic.

    Yeah Terry has been suspect from the beginning imo. So glad he didn't play Luke Cage like some ppl suggested. Anthony Mackie has been playing himself lately too.
