Story is here (http://jezebel.com/the-contestants-of-big-brother-are-horrifyingly-racist-639129718). Some of the comments (which are apparently edited out for broadcast, but included in live feeds) include:

- Referring to welfare as nigger insurance.
- Calling the gay housemate a fag.
- Calling female contestants cunts.
- Poking fun at the Asian contestant's eyes.

There are dozens of other, equally awful examples. Is this any different from other seasons of Big Brother (I've only seen a few episodes before)? Do you think CBS should be editing out these comments for prime time? Does this affect your view of the show?

I don't think it's ever been this bad this fast. They really went low-rent with the casting this time. There are very few of these people I actually like.
