    Really people?!?!? Is this what we've come to? I think it would be awesome to have other races on there and I am white... It's not The White Bachelor, it's The Bachelor. This is America, let's mix up the population on the show and those that don't like it can get over it... or not!

    No because ABC is still primarily targeted towards whites. Being realistic, who really wants to see a whole bunch of white girls throwing themselves at some black guy who really isn't all that? I'm black and I don't. Oh, they'd throw a few black women in in this installment but if he didn't give them a rose, then black groups would be up in arms and all sorts of extra drama would occur. Maybe someone like Kris Humphries if you want a little diversity but this cat? No.

    Its funny to me how people can never be happy. They will always find a problem with everything. The show hasn't even aired yet and we already got people saying negative things. ABC you're dammed if you do and dammed if you don't.

    Yes i agree Pam.The guilt-ridden liberal white/jew media in their efforts to try and diversify everything always seems to throw a black boy on tv w/a white chick.Look at the 'E channel' and all the interracial couples (mainly b-man/w-woman)on there,alot of modern day porn,movies,commercials.Yeah the media are truly the best recruiters people like the klan/skinheads have ever had.Multiculturalism is a disease that is killing america and europe.

    This is still a majority WHITE country and the ratings reflect in its success the way that it is.What next does there have to be an asian woman contestant? Then what? latino? Then what? asian man,black woman?? If abc goes this direction they will get a backlash like a motherf_________er and they'd deserve it imo.Unless they'd plan on using all black women trust me this will not fly anyone who thinks it will you really are clueless.Just being real here.
