Colton makes Russell, Johnny Fairplay and other villans look like saints. His bigotry and prejudice is astounding, and I view it from the foundation of going through civil rights day of the 60's. It's absolutely incredible that Jeff and crew didn't pickup on this characteristic during the auditions. Even considering that quirkiness is exaggerated and amplified for the sake of ratings, that man is overtly despicable. I was literally physically sick watching the March 7th episode.
The worse of everything is that not one single other "thing" in that tribe stood up against the bigotry or or in defense of Bill. Even Tar-whatever's statement was inordinately weak.
I will record the next episode, but can't envision watching it unless the street talk is about Colton's ejection or rejection or exiled royally.
PART 3: If this is no longer going to be a family friendly show, someone please tell me now!!!! And then I can explain to my son that he can't watch his favorite show any more because the CBS people are just as moronic as Colton, whom he already very much dislikes. *darn the only 1000 character rule*
PART 2: My son does not need to hear a little person referred to as a Dwarf or an Oompa Loompa or that they need to be kicked right back to Oz!! My son does not need to hear all that racist crap that was spewed tonight!! Yes I blame Colton for being a rich spoiled moron, but mostly I blame the editors for the way they edited the final show and aired it like it was no big deal!!

What is confusing me is not the cast or how they are acting or how the others are allowing the mens drama queen to run the show. What is not only confusing but irritating is that I have been watching this show for longer than I can remember with my kids. My older kids can handle it! But I was never so thankful that my 8 yr old fell asleep during a commercial (which I intentionally let play so he would)!! My kids have watched this show with me since they were little. Occasionally something inappropriate comes up and I just talk through it or fast forward. Tonight was not excusable in my opinion!!! My son does not need to see what Colton is as the normal "GAY" person. Truth of the matter is, he is not like that because he is gay, but that is how they refer to him on the show "the gay guy"!!
All I can say is I'm pretty much ready to quit watching survivor. I've never felt like this before. I am still shocked. Partly that a human being like Colton exists, but mostly that the other guys let him get away with that! I even thought Jeff let him get away with too much. If he's still in the game in a couple of episodes, I'm out.
What shocked me the most is that all the other men on his tribe never said a word about it, that no one stood up to Colton. Not a single one. I do want to believe they only did it because they where as shocked as I was and just couldn't believe he was being for real. I have found myself speechless in situations (way less horrible than this one) and I know that is not an excuse but yet possible.
Does Jeff Probst have to be impartial? Can't he say: Colton, you crossed a line? To me it seemed Jeff never liked Johnny Fairplay and it was obvious when they interacted. I do want to believe that Jeff is not okay with what just happened there and I do want to believe that the other guys will at least NOW (meaning after tribal when they are back at camp) think and take action as in voting Colton off next week. How hard is it after watching 24 seasons to flash out an idol? They only have to split the votes. I can't believe how much this is bothering me ...
Colton: A FAT REPUBLICAN FAG FROM ALABAMA. Is anyone really suprised????
So, Revoltin' Colton paints on his gayface.
In this guise, he can freely dismiss poor people, little people, and basically, black people too. BUT he is in gayface character -- your average flaming dismissive queen of a gay that gyrates the neck, rolls the eyeballs, primps the nails, and swoops the hair. NO ONE DOES THAT! BUT, in costume, gayface can do anything~ Like denigrate little guys without remorse. Or substantiate black existence to scrub his tub. WHY else did god provide them to his family? They should be happy to earn a wage being slaves...
Twitter leaves no room for thought at all. There is no way to convey to a minstrel gayface like Revoltin' Colton the implications of his actions at all. At best a little slap here and there, which leaves complete room for his outright dismissal.
Twitter sucks. There is no room for discussion, let alone complete thoughts. I cannot even manage with 1000 characters and 2x postings w/o being cut-off here. *sigh*
Do people get the minstrel reference and why it is so damaging? It really is serious stuff.
