David Spade

The "Bachelor" Should Go Black

4/4/2012 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Spade is a passionate pioneer for Civil Rights ... when it comes to "The Bachelor." Not exactly what MLK had in mind, we think -- but couldn't hurt, right?

How about not casting the show based on race period. One bachlorette and the contestants with no regard to their race. If either has a problem dating outside their race then they can find another show.

A black bachelorette would work without any problems, They should go that route first. They do need to change things up a bit. This past one was boring

I love The Bachelor for many reasons-- I would say it's my favorite show of all time. I find this is a bit ridiculous that just any person, black, indian, asian, should assume they deserve more opportunity because of their background. Go through the process like everyone else. If someone wants to be the Bachelor/ette, go through the show like all the others and make it to that point. However, ABC isn't obligated to just turn the show whichever way people are going to try to get it moving. Just by speaking about a "Black" bachelor is being stereotypical in itself.
