This is a dumb lawsuit ad black people need to learn they can not force whites to date them.

I've always wondered why not many Blacks were contestants or Bachelors and Bachelorettes.I think they should be sued.

Only communist countries were able to force people to do something they didn't want to do. And all of those countries were/are a disaster. Without a single exception. Most of them collapsed. The USSR - remember it? The Iron Curtain? And of course the DDR (East Germany, for the uninformed) Romania; Czecheslovakia; Hungary; Poland; Cuba; North Korea; The People's Democratic Republic of Congo. All, with no exception, basket cases. Is that what you want? Have you actually thought through the consequences of trying to force people to do things they won't do of their own free will? The West, and particulary the US, is obsessed with racism, race, accusations of racism. People discriminate all of the time. With food, their choice of women, the color of their hair, the cars they drive. The color of their wallpaper! Eventually there's going to be a nasty backlash against this racism fetish that is most often used as a pry bar to get one's own way.

I think the lawyers that took this case should be sued for stupidity. This is a dating show, and you can't force people into interracial dating. Plus, if they are this sensitive over not getting picked for the show, I can only imagine how whiny and pouty these two babies will get if the woman doesn't pick them for a date.

This is a waste of time, since this type of show has already been done on TV-One. We really need to worry about more important things.

It seems this thread is invaded with azzholes that have no human spirit about what is important. Keep your ignorance to yourselves. I hope your children know better.

Hopefully your children will get the sense in their heads that their father was born without it seems. May they come to know that there are good and bad in ALL races, and realize that their dad needs to see a shrink for his hatred, and beg God's forgiveness for his misguided hatred.
