ABC’s “Bachelor” franchise, which has been criticized and even sued for its severe lack of minorities, is the target of a new social media campaign launched by a woman trying to be the first African American in franchise history to hand out roses.

Misee Harris, a 28-year-old pediatric dentist from Tennessee, has fired up a Facebook page to help in her endeavor.

Harris – who does charity work and loves sports – was actually chosen to be a contestant on “The Bachelor” but bowed out for fear of being the “token” black chick, reports Jezebel.

As previously reported, there were four black contestants vying for Sean Lowe’s hand this season.
