All interracial dating
franchise by becoming the first Black Bachelorette, we knew Rachel Lindsay was open to interracial dating.
After all, she was one of women vying for Nick Viall’s heart last season. The politics of interracial dating in this country are complicated, as evidenced by the fact this is the most diverse season of , ever.

This did not stop one publication from running a story that low-key lauded Lindsay for her choice to associate with white men, mainly because it counters data that revealed Black women are less likely to date outside of their race.
