The Amazing Race tells it like it is

The first family was eliminated on The Amazing Race just a few minutes ago. They were the token minority family on the show, are African-American, and have the family name “Black.” Imagine our amusement, then, when host Phil Koeghan informed them of their last-place finish: “Black family, you arrived last, and are eliminated from The Amazing Race” (the quote may not be accurate after the first two words). So we’re stuck with a bunch of white families for the rest of the show. Oh, the irony!
