Why is “The Bachelor” still on TV and why do people still watch it? So far, there have been 22 seasons, 223 episodes. Black people are still trying to get the love and attention of White people on National TV. Why? Our people wind up tossed out like fuzzy potatoes. Too many people say “I’m color blind” or “I don’t see color”. In reality, due to a turbulent history of race in the United States, White people would rarely approach a Black person seriously to date due to the dismay of their loved ones.
Times seem to be changing a bit with Millennials. But the history is still there and when it comes to “The Bachelor” series, one Black lead shows how reluctant White contestants are to choose Black (or even Latino, Asian, Muslim) mates on national television. Knowing the history of “The Bachelor”, why do Black folks STILL go on that show knowing they’ll never be chosen? And discussing the misogyny of the show won’t hurt either. Let’s talk about it!
