Special Edition: Discussing Whether 'The Bachelor’ Franchise Is Exploiting Race for Ratings   After hearing for years that #TheBachelor franchise is racist & sexist, we've decided to have a long-form conversation in order to get to the bottom of it. In preparation for this chat, on Instagram, we posted a simple poll asking "Yes" or "No" ...is 'The Bachelor' racist? Thousands of you voted & the results were split almost completely down the middle 50/50. This got us thinking: "If roughly HALF the fans of a show truly believe it to be racist, why do they continue to watch? How can you be so supportive of a franchise you feel is truly racist? & is there proof to show that Bachelor fans could be sexist...towards men?" These are touchy topics, but important nonetheless.
