New Lawsuit Claims ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ Are Racist, Twin Ports What Do You Think? [POLL]

ABC

A new class action lawsuit claims that the popular ABC reality series ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette’ are racist because in 23 seasons, the show has not had a Bachelor or Bachelorette of color.

A couple of no name amateur football players, Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson, are behind the lawsuit.  They are both African American and say that the show is clearly racist and plan to prove it in court.

While no main Bachelor or Bachelorette has been of color, there have been several minorities cast as the men or women seeking a rose and “love”  on reality TV.

Neither ABC or the producers of the show have a comment about this particular case, but they have said in the past regarding casting minorities, “for whatever reason, they don’t come forward”.

I’ll keep an eye on this story, I’m not sure that it warrants a lawsuit, but you can’t argue with the facts.  I’m sure the show does not have a racist agenda when casting the show, but they certainly cast the show to appeal to a very specific demographic, which is their prerogative.
