In the eight seasons of ABC’s The Bachelorette, the bachelorettes have always been beautiful. They have always been intelligent. They have always been warm and friendly. They have also always been white. But that is about to change if Misee Harris has her way. The 28-year-old African-American dentist is currently engaging in a social media campaign to be the first African-American bachelorette. Her potential candidacy prompts the question of whether America is ready to enthusiastically watch eligible men of all races compete for a black woman’s heart. I believe that — despite the fact that black women’s beauty and worth is often marginalized by the mainstream media — America is indeed ready. Hopefully ABC and the producers of The Bachelorette will recognize that.
