(Reuters) - A pair of African American men expect to file a lawsuit against ABC television and the producer of reality dating shows "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" charging racial discrimination, attorneys said on Tuesday.
The class action, to be filed in federal court on Wednesday, is being brought by two residents of Nashville, Tennessee who claim the popular shows intentionally exclude people of color.

C’mon.. this is satire, isn’t it... it’s gotta be!
White people should sue BET.
Gotta be Jesse and Al.
“I gots a constitutional right to be on the Bachelor!”
“You’re messin’ wit my rights!”
I’m sure Tyler Perry is being concurrently served with a similar suit.
As the clock runs out on Obama’s presidency with no indication that he will do anything substantial, meaningful, or even useful, the blacks are becoming more and more incensed that there will be none of the hope and change they were promised.
I’ll say it again: the race riots this summer are going to be absolutely amazing. It’s starting to look like it’s inevitable, regardless of whatever happens with George Zimmerman.
Naw, it was Snoop Dog and Tupac.
Here’s something to get all upset about, oh yeah.
Blacks should sue every other station except BET.
FYI most blacks that I know don’t watch that joke of a station called BET either.
I don’t know why Anybody would want to be associated with this show.
The old network’s finances are down so they run these shows that cost them little to produce. They won’t run any family friendly shows because that would be against their dogma. I love it.
“the blacks are becoming more and more incensed that there will be none of the hope and change they were promised.”
please for the love of God stop generalizing. I realize I’m one of like 7 black people that didn’t vote for the guy but stop it. More and more black people are seeing your point of view so don’t ruin it. I’ve been convincing them Obama’s an idiot....no worries :)
"This guy here is dead!"
"Well, cross him off then!"
If something doesn’t change in the zeitgeist of this country, where being “racist” (anti-white) is the sum of all evil, I can foresee the day-and soon-where people will be sued for “discrimination” because they choose not to date or marry those of another race. Who ever believed the loss of freedom of association was all about being able to get a job? Only white communities are forced to “diversify”, never so-called “minorities”. Will this policy change when whites ARE the minority, or will whites then have the rights of freedom of association that the present minorities have, based on our having a threatened culture (ie, having values which produced the Detroit of the forties and fifties rather than that of the seventies and beyond)?
Why don’t you run your own show on your Black Entertainment Channel, racists?
BTW, how many whites you got on BET? How many white-hispanics? How many asians?
Perhaps it’s time BET be sued for Racism. And the NAAACP, and the black congressional caucus, and the New Black Panthers. Shall I name more black racists?
I thought they already had a ‘Bachelor’ show called the ‘Flava of Love’. What are they so upset about??
If I were a member of a minority, excluded from that TRASH programming, I’d send the the network a letter of thanks, rather than a lawsuit.
The NAACP has Ben Jealous.
