In 23 seasons there has NOT been a black bachelor or bachelorette. Have you ever noticed this? The very popular show has been on air for 10 years and not one African American.
On Wednesday, two African-American men, Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson, filed a federal lawsuit in Nashville against ABC and the “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”
The lawsuit claims the shows engaged in patterns of racial discrimination because certain ethnic groups were blocked from having the chance to participate in leading roles. These are just two of the few that feel they have not had their fare shot.
The show has been embarrassingly white. We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this.
Perhaps there is some truth in that claim….eh?
