Hannah Brown got loads of backlash when she posted her song where she sang the N-word multiple times. Several times, fans saw her apologize, but the backlash continued. Plenty of people supported her after her apology, but she still felt not right. She took her own accountability. Now, she said that she learned from it all. “Just because you’re nice doesn’t mean you’re not racist,” she declared. Some fans think she should feature on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor.
Hannah Brown learns that ‘nice’ isn’t enough when it comes to racism
The reality TV star featured on The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and took the Mirror Ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars. So, plenty of people follow her. Naturally, when she came out with the N-word, critics thought ABC should dump her. And since then, plenty of other networks fired people for racism. Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder on Vandepump Rules is just one example. So far, Hannah survived the firings during the George Floyd Black Lives Matter protests. Possibly, her personal efforts on re-education saved her. However, in the long-term, she surely faces some scrutiny.
Hannah spoke about her learning experience with Saahene on June 11. Saahene started the Privilege to Progress movement. E!News reminds people they try and “create awareness and inspire action toward racial justice.” During her Live chat, Hannah Brown explained that she now understands why her casual use of the N-word caused “so much hurt.” While she originally declared her intoxication made her do it, she noted that’s not a good excuse. Hannah’s got black friends. And, she gets along with them just fine. But she later learned just being “nice” doesn’t really make people non-racist.
The DWTS winner can’t believe she said the N-word
Hannah feels shocked at her own behavior, and how casually the bad word slipped out of her. And, she never considered herself racist. But, she now understands why black friends she knew since forever, hold a different “outlook on life” to her. Talking with those people, she said that she learned “just because you’re nice doesn’t mean you’re not racist.” Hannah now hopes that she can pass on the message to other white people like her: The ones who “continue to make excuses and think it’s okay when it’s not.”
Since Hannah’s various reveals about taking lessons to understand racism, the hate and backlash died down a bit on her Instagram account. Her loyal fans now suggest she move on from Tyler Cameron and the past and apply to get on another Bachelor show. In fact, many of them would love to see her hook up with Matt James. CNN announced that during calls for diversity, ABC selected him as the first black Bachelor. Prior to that, Rachel Linsday featured in Season 13 of The Bachelorette.
