Real World Creator Bunim Dies, RIP

Mary-Ellis Bunim, pioneered the reality genre in which semi-educated inner city black kids were transplanted into all-white environments with priviledged peers, only to be humiliated and thrown off the show when they resorted to anti-social behavior, died on Thursday.

Charmed, I'm sure, but hardly the commitment to 'diversity' that all the Hollywood obits are praising her for.

Whatever my differences with her style of reality television, may she rest in peace.
