A judge says "The Bachelor" doesn't have to cast African-Americans -- so it's time to celebrate ... if you're a Black man. Seriously, who wants to deal with 25 women constantly fighting and bitching?

Seriously, this judge is a moron for comparing The Bachelor to The Cosby Show.

No different than all-black shows excluding white people (Cosby, Martin, anything Tyler Perry) or the ENTIRE BLACK CHANNEL (BET) where you won't see a white person anywhere -- not even on a commercial.

Why is this not considered racially biased? Hmm?

Enough Already    

TMZ...I couldn't agree with you more. BE THANKFUL you guys that you AREN'T on that show!!! The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are two of the most wasted TV space there is!!! NO ONE ever lasts more than a couple months after the "final rose" so why even do this show.?!?!?! It's a joke!!! Not to mention that they never bring "new" talent to the shows; it's always the rejects from the previous season. ABC....give it up already!!! Those two shows have run it's course!!! SNOOZE FEST!!!!

This show is bull anyway... For the record I am like Baskin Robin.. I like all flavors, but to sit here and look at all of these comments that are degrading African American women... just dumb!

Sincerity    

I completely understand where the judge is coming from. As long as the company that produces this show receives no "STATE OR FEDERAL" funding, creatively, it can do "WHATEVER IT PLEASES"!!! IT'S ALL GOOD!!! This opens up an "OPPORTUNITY" for ABC's competitors to produce similar shows that will be MUCH MORE "RACIALLY" INCLUSIVE!!! This judge just handed "The Bachelor" a "DEATH SENTENCE"!!! The vast majority of reality TV shows are "RACIALLY INCLUSIVE" and "PEOPLE OF COLOR" should avoid watching this "CRAPPY AZZ SHOW" LIKE "THE PLAGUE" and "NOT SUPPORT ITS ADVERTISERS"!!! HE WHO LAUGHS LAST, LAUGHS THE BEST!!!

Why would any African American want to be on this crap fest of a tv show anyway? The show is stupid and shows how desperate woman are to find a man. Hell, I'm surprised this stupid "show" is still on.

MADE MAN    

It's fake anyway!!! What respectable woman looks for love on national tv? Geez I'm a man and I feel like these kind of shows exploit women so why can't women see it??? I guess it's because white women are lined up looking for for love. It's just like that other millionaire man show a fraud. I'm glad blacks aren't allowed on the show.

While we are at it why don't we have:
NET=Native American TV
GET=German TV
AET-Asian TV
FET=French TV

Just follow along, someone will comment on a group of (American's) I forgot.
I am so glad that I live in America, and have the freedom to choose what I want to watch on TV. I also have a remote control that allows me to change the channel if I don't like whats on.
Get over being racist, it's so last decade.

Seriously, all the brother players I ever knew did not want their girlfriends to know about each other. "Bachelor" is a stupid-white-people-who-read-wedding-and-romance-magazines show.
