The Blackchelors Finally Revealed! What do the Guys Suing The Bachelor Franchise Look Like?
Don’t act like you didn’t care. We all wanted to know if they were rejected because they are black, or because they are ugly, or if they are black and ugly.
They both appear to be fine looking gentlemen. If they are tall then I’m sure they would more then qualify for most women, but the question is could most women take them home to meet mom and dad. Would sponsors pay to see these guys swooned over by 20 white (and black) women. It would be America’s most feared realization after Barack Obama getting re-elected.
I’M NOT SURE IF IT IS REALLY WRONG OR NOT……
I think ABC has the right to choose anyone that they feel fits the role. I look a the Bachelor as casting a role just like any other type of show. They are looking for a certain type for one and for two their defense for the previous choices could be supported by the fact that they have fallen in the pattern of choosing the loser from the previous Bachelor or Bachelorette to be the “Chosen” one for the next season. The lawsuit filed by Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson state that the producers and ABC
“are making the calculation that minorities in lead roles and interracial dating is unappealing to the shows’ audiences,’
“The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are examples of purposeful segregation in the media that perpetuates racial stereotypes and denies persons of color opportunities in the entertainment industry.’
Like I said, I get it….I’m just not sure I agree with it. Part of me also wonders if there are better fights to be had then the right to be on the Bachelor. I guess it must start somewhere, the question is where does it end.
Naturally the attorneys hired by the men feel like this is he next Roe vs Wade. They feel like it will be a landmark civil rights case that will move social justice and economic equality forward. One of the attorneys, Cyrus Mehri stated,
‘They’re doing their small part in the Unites States’ journey to be a more inclusive country, to be a more diverse country, and to be a country that is far more tolerant than this series would suggest.’
