You didn't pick any of them. Instead, you picked a white woman five years your junior, then dumped her because she didn't understand your very-different life experiences? Whatever, dude. You're a cad. When the show has a Black bachelor, he needs to initiate discussion of race with any white women he is considering, as the show gets closer to the finale. questions about her experience with dating Men who are not white, socializing with Black friends, and how her parents would react to them dating, all need to be addressed. Rachael seemed naive about issues of race, like someone who says "I don't see color," when that is obviously not true. The party Rachael attended was hosted by her sorority, which was likely all white. THe national sorority put a stop to the "Old South" type of party, so her chapter just re-themed it to "Rose Ball" and had it anyway. Sororities are steeped in tradition, and my experience is that they are not open to questioning of traditions. If all of your friends are attending a traditional party, it takes courage to question the tradition. A lot of white people wouldn't see the party itself as racist unless it was explained to them. 2 hours ago, Dehumidifier said: Two black Bachelorettes and one black Bachelor and every one chose a white finalist. If I recall properly Rachel Lindsay's final three or four were all white. Why are they not being accused of racism? That's not the definition of racism. Dating outside your race is not, by itself, racist. It's not treating someone unfairly because of their race, and it's not rooted in the belief that one race is superior. I'm not sure how you are defining racism, but that's not it. 1 15 Link to comment
