I'm a black woman and I find this ridiculous and the reaction is super OTT for what was done. Does everyone in bachnation need to now also publicly defend Rachel and shame E? I've seen people on other platforms now saying Jojo and Kaitlyn need to stand up for Rachel. Wut? Were her rights infringed on because she doesn't have a picture of her and her fiance in an article that literally means nothing?. Should this "unprofessional" intern that runs their SM account be fired for not posting Brachel or following them? Let the fans b*tch and moan about this and be mad in the comments. IMO it should be beneath any of these couples to truly care.

Their bias is definitely showing. IMO it’s not an oversight, racism or not , very unprofessional 

This is what they posted to congratulate her engagement. No Bryan, just Rachel in her wifey shirt.

What did they post two days later? 6 pictures of f2.

But, if Rachel is sensitive to the issue, as she said on her season, then things like this will further cement her sensitivity. I so agree that not everything is racially motivated, but I also understand the sensitivity.

And maybe it is Bryan that they are diss'ing, which would make her equally mad.

And maybe it was just an oversight and Rachel is being too sensitive, but I can't blame her for being upset. Claire gets a picture, seriously? I liked Claire best with the rodent on BIP. laugh out loud Or was it a bird, can't remember.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] As a black woman myself, I can see your point but it’s not a one time thing. You have a media outlet that only chose to included photos of Caucasian couples and excluded Rachel and Bryan (the first POC lead and her F1) and Taylor and Derek. IMO, you don’t see it as a bigger issue? As others have mentioned this isn’t the first time enews has displayed this type of behavior but this is the first time Rachel has addressed it. Why does she have to accept it and let it slide this time? IMO, when you don’t address this type of behavior then people think it’s acceptable. Granted it’s only enews but to some it’s still a “TRUSTED NEWS SOURCE”. IMO, I also doubt it’s an intern running the page. They put up quite a bit of content on their page that gets seen and liked by tons of people.

But Enews posts plenty of photos and articles of non-Caucasians? If this was some widespread issue that includes all people of color and not just a few Bachelor franchise people I could see this as an issue.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] If it's really racial, then get mad on SM for sh*t that actually matters. There's an abundance. I've also noticed Rachel's conspicuously less outspoken about controversial things than she was before. Out of all the racial injustices in the world, I'm supposed to care about this? Nah.

You know what, since the start of the year, E's only posted one picture of Drake & it's from when he was a baby. Justin Bieber gets posted like every single week, SO many pictures of Justin Timberlake, and Ansel Elgort and other lesser celebrities. They're also always posting celebs at sporting events, Drake was recently at a pretty big Raptors game, looking like a snack and acting like a fool in the best way possible, totally SM worthy, and E didn't post him to their Instagram, you know what, Rachel has it right [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]!

IMHO Rachel has the right to be upset about this, as other posters have pointed out, this isn't the first time. It's not the biggest issue in the world, we all know it, Rachel didn't claim it is. But it's an issue, and imho she's not at all ott with this. Jmo.

I wonder if it's Bryan they don't like? I get that since I'm not a fan but do think it would have been better to have pics of all the couples if you're going to have some of them. I get why Rachel would be mad but don't think the Instagram post is a big deal. I didn't even realize that Taylor was bi-racial until after BIP so what do I know? giggling

I kind of doubt they're showing their bias but they should have thought about it before putting it out there, imo.
