Another Feud whine
But now somebody has combined the prudery with a weird ethnic grievance. This column by a Portales, NM resident moans: "Over the past two decades, I've only seen one or two Hispanic families on Family Feud." Oh, really? A simple Google search rounded up plenty of YouTube clips of Hispanic families on Feud. Just for funsies I took a screenshot of one of them. The idea that Feud is excluding families of any ethnicity is beyond stupid.
To give the columnist credit, she admits that she might be wrong about the alleged ethnic snub. But then she goes on to faint over a question on Feud about, gasp, Viagra. Why, it's like nobody's ever heard of such things...except in the bazillion ads every day for ED drugs.
To top off the all-round brilliance she then mopes - get this - that we never hear about Hispanics playing chess. Somebody tell her about José Raúl Capablanca, who was only one of the most famous world chess champions of all time. Or Leinier Domínguez, currently in the top 30 worldwide.
She finishes with a plug for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Hope she doesn't get p.o.ed that there aren't enough Hispanics in the T of C.
