Who is chris harrison dating from the bachelor
ABC’s “The Bachelor” dating franchise has a relationship with race and diversity that can be summed up in a Facebook update: It’s complicated.
This summer’s 12th season of “The Bachelorette” began with a half-Iranian star, Joelle “Jo Jo” Fletcher, and five non-white suitors.
That continues a troubling pattern for a show that has all too often failed to feature non-white contestants.
When only white people are represented, the show sends a signal, intentionally or not, about who in our society is attractive and lovable.In 2012, two Nashville men filed a class-action lawsuit accusing the show of racial discrimination after 2011’s “Bachelorette” season starring Ashley Hebert included no minorities out of 25 contestants.The suit was dismissed after the network and the producers argued their casting decisions are protected by the First Amendment.But after Tuesday’s third episode, Fletcher eliminated four of those five bachelor contestants.All 20 white contestants remain in contention to get the final rose.
