Lake Shore reality show announces racially categorized cast

Writing about Lake Shore, Toronto's self-touted "fresh new addition to the reality TV revolution," is surely a catch-22. Even if one wants to criticize the show and and its over-the-top focus on the racial make-up of its cast members, he has to realize that for enterprises of this nature, all press is good press.

So, a couple of solutions: 1.) I'll resist the urge to take the racially-categorized cast list with any seriousness, and 2.) I'll remind myself that shock tactics like this are so transparently desperate, there's really no need to add any analysis or insight into the matter. Everybody gets it.

Check out the YouTube clip above to see the latest development from a reality TV series that, it should be remembered, has yet to get on television.
