Two Black Men plan a lawsuit against 'The Bachelor' for racial discrimination

| No Comments

Two black men from Nashville filed a class action lawsuit against ABC and the producers of the reality television show The Bachelor for purposeful discrimination against people of color, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson's suit, according to the Vancouver Sun, says ABC has never put a single person of color - whether African American, Hispanic or Asian - in the central role of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.

Attorney representing Claybrooks and Johnson, Cyrus Mehri told Entertainment Weekly, "...[the producers of the show and ABC] are sending a message of exclusiveness - of denying people opportunity - and that has a negative effect on this country that we plan today to start to turn around."
