'Bachelor' to be sued for lack of minority contestants4/18/2012
A recent study found that many more Americans are in interracial/ethnic marriages than ever before, and those numbers continue to rise. So you would think "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," after 10 years and 23 combined seasons, would have had at least one person of color cast as the titular seekers of love. Nope. And that's the impetus behind a lawsuit expected to be filed tomorrow against ABC, the series' production companies and the show runner. Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson (both are black) allege the shows have intentionally excluded people of color. They make a strong point -- interracial dating is now commonplace, and it's not as if there's a shortage of quality candidates.
What do you think about the case?
