The stars of ABC's The Bachelor are uniting for a good cause and campaigning for a black lead for the show's upcoming 25th season. Multiple stars of the franchise, including Tyler Cameron and Lauren Burnham, have signed a petition at change.org titled, "A Campaign for Anti-Racism in the Bachelor Franchise" to incorporate more diversity on the show. The petition, which calls for a black lead in the show's upcoming season and more diversity in casting and production, points out that out of the show's 40 leads, only one of them has been black. Many fans campaigned for Mike Johnson to be last season's lead, but the producers ultimately chose Peter Weber. If you would like to see the franchise "reflect and honor the racial diversity of our country", as the petition says, join your favorite Bachelor stars and sign here.
