Rachel Lindsay congratulates Matt James, calls out the Bachelor franchise for doing the bare minimum



- After ABC announced Matt James as the new Bachelor, former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay took to Twitter to both congratulate him, and to drag the franchise for doing the equivalent of "posting a black box on your social media account without other steps taken to dismantle the systems of injustice"
- Matt James will be the first Black lead of the Bachelor after 18 years and 40 seasons
- Lindsay previously stated that she will no longer be affiliated with the franchise unless it made some big changes
