NEW YORK (AP) -- The new season of "Survivor" will be a race among races.

At the start of the reality show's 13th edition, "Survivor: Cook Islands," 20 contestants will be organized into four tribes divided along ethnic lines -- black, white, Hispanic and Asian, CBS announced Wednesday.

The tribes, as usual, will merge later in the season, which debuts September 14, the network said.

Jeff Probst, host of the show, said the network was worried the racial divide might offend viewers.

"It's very risky because you're bringing up a topic that is a hot button," Probst told asap, The Associated Press service for younger readers. "There's a history of segregation you can't ignore. It is part of our history."

"For that, it's much safer to say, 'No, let's just stick with things the way they are. Let's don't be the network to rock the boat. Let's not have "Survivor" try something new,"' he said. "But the biases from home can't affect you. This is an equal opportunity game."

Probst said he and the "Survivor" producers wanted to bring more ethnic diversity to the competition.

"The truth is 80 percent of the people that apply are white," he said. "And television, in general, is white. So all these criticisms were valid."

On each episode of "Survivor: Cook Islands," at least one cast member will be sent to a separate island miles away from camp, where an immunity idol will be hidden. If found, this immunity idol could save a contestant from being voted off the show.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Serena Williams Interview

Subject: Serena Williams Interview

Ms. Williams we are all interested in your new boyfriend.

There is no new boyfriend . I stopped playing with boys when I stopped
dating black guys. I have a new man in my life and yes, he's white.

So you prefer to date white men instead of black guys?

Let's be real. If you are a successful black female you only have two
choices....date outside of your race or date other successful black
females.

Are you saying there are no successful black men to date?

Of course not but lets face it, if Oprah would date outside of her
race she would be married with children now. The state of most black
men is so low the only thing you can do is love them. Like a poor
homeless dog. You can't expect it to protect you. You can only offer
shelter and love and watch as our neighbor's pit-bull protects his
home and family. I, unlike Oprah, am not forced to stay within those
>>boundaries. I was born into a new generation of black women.

So Oprah is being forced to date Stedman?

All I can say is when you find a successful black women who is not
married and does not have children it is because they refuse to accept
the two choices. Some may go as far as marriage to a black guy but
they realize divorce is inevitable so they do not have children. Or
they have children with one and don't marry in order to preserve their
wealth and good credit. Oprah is one of many who silently protests
being stuck with such poor choices by refusing to marry and reproduce
but you can see how much it hurts her. She's always giving away money
to children's charities. I hope she makes the choice to marry a
non-black soon so she can have a child of her own.

But you have decided to accept the two choices?

Yes. I grew up in California around the two extremes of wealth. If I
could only get myself t o try the bisexual thing I would have been
much happier in my relationships. Instead I dated black men. I loved
many of them but they were just not suitable for marriage. Many of
them were raised by women and had warped mentalities. So I finally had
to date outside my race. When I moved to Miami, I accepted my status
and dated men on my level.

What do you mean by warped mentalities?

Well, where do I begin? Many of them were raised predominantly by
women and had this feminine/bisexual complex. Where they wanted to be
treated like a female sometimes. For example, I would have the money &
they would have the sex. I would teach them things. You know, all the
things a woman likes a man to do, I would end up doing for them. Then
if we would get into an argument, there would be a role reversal. All
of a sudden, they would be the man wanting the respect of a king in
his castle. Black men over the years have become less and less of
value to black women both rich and poor. I predict in 10 years they
will be obsolete. Now they serve little to no function and what little
they can do, they don't want to do.

Why 10 years?

That's when going to a fertility clinic to get impregnated by a sperm
donor will become as common and accessible as the flu shot. Women who
want sex will do it with whoever they want (girl, guy, rich, poor,
white, black) and go to the bank (the sperm bank) when they are ready to
have children. Even those who waited (like Oprah) will have fertilized eggs placed inVitro.
That's the day the secret organization of women is waiting for. The day when men are 100% dis-empowered.

Are you apart of that organization?

No. They're a mostly white group. Plus that day for black men is
practically here already. Black women are already raising 75% of the
black population without a man. When fertility clinics become more
affordable Black women will be standing in line. It will be just like
plastic surgery. Everyone laughed at Michael Jackson but its becoming
so popular now, that even poor blacks are getting work done...mostly
breast reductions and liposuction.

So do you want men to be dis-empowered?

Heck, no! That's why I am with a white man now. I want a man to be a
man and I am not going to settle for less just to stay within racial
boundaries. A Black man in my position wouldn't do it so why should I.
Don't get me wrong, I love black men. My father is black, I have dated
black men all my life, and if I have a male child he will be part
black.  But my husband and I will raise him together so hopefully he will be
a worthy choice for a worthy black female. Not the only choice, or "there's
nothing better out there so I'll settle for this" choice. 
When you are successful you want the best. The best food, clothes,
places to live etc.  I want the best man also.

And you think the best man is a non-black man?

I think if there's a better choice for me, God would have shown me. I
am in the public so I get to meet lots of people from all over the
world athletes, celebs etc. I am wealthy so I am invited and have
traveled to the most prestigious events all over the world. Out of all
those people, places and events....I had to choose the right man for
me. Like it or not (with very few exceptions) a white man is the only
real choice for a successful black female.

Ok, here it is.  My wife is considering going to law school.  I have been out of the game for awhile, so I dont know what the best prep course is for the LSAT.  What is out there and what is the best course.  What is the best course out there for the money (i.e., the best bang for your buck).  How long should one prep for the LSAT?  Any information would be greatly appreciated. :)
