|I don't like when shows put two groups, that otherwise should be considered equal, against each other to see who wins.
Isn't every instance of that show, and indeed, of every competition ever held, "putting two groups that otherwise should be considered equal against each other to see who wins"? That is what makes competition interesting, challenging, and why it has so much appeal. Nobody wants to see a baby race against a seasoned athlete, what would be the point of that?
It is because of the fact that they are equally capable of performing well in the competition that makes it interesting to watch and to participate as team members.
It seems to me that in order for this to be considered a problem one would have to believe the teams are not equal in capability.
Edited to add: What if the teams were all of one race, but one team wore yellow shirts and the other team wore purple shirts? Would that be considered 'inflamatory'? Would people say, "well, they won because they were wearing the yellow shirts"?
