Big Brother contestants and their racist rants , what do you think the game should do? Do you think they should have aired the footage? Do you think the contestants realize how much trouble they are in?

I think that kind of talk is obnoxious but why should they be in trouble? Free speech?

I haven't watched it this year.  What the hell is up with all the racism now?  Paula Deen, Big Brother contestants...who is going to be next?  ;)

ETC: racism being the big deal now within the media.  I guess social networking?

I think the show was so obsessed with finding outrageous characters that they forgot they are unpredictable people, too.

They could shut down the 24 hour live feed and do some serious editing like any other show. And next time you know not cast overtly racist house guests LOL

It is televised so sponsors are involved. Two of the contestants lost their jobs in the real world, but wont know it for months.

Yes some consequences. But like Paula Dean some will support them. I believe I heard that her book sales are doing very well.

Wow, that's crazy. They don't even know they've lost their jobs yet!

Really unwise of them to talk about. I wish they would air it.
