Love Is Blind Raven and SK Talk Lauren Speed’s claims

Love is blind stars Raven Ross and SK Alagbada told BuzzFeed their reaction to Lauren Speed’s claim that the show “cut out“Black women.

Last month, the season 1 alum went to Twitter to claim that there was a discrepancy between the number of Black women shown in promotional materials and the number of Black women actually featured in Season 3.

I don’t like how LIB cuts all black women. How come they are always in the trailer but not in the show… 👀

“I know it’s a small choice, but about 85% of couples are forced anyway (just moving forward for entertainment purposes),” she continued. “You could at least force some more sisters to move on during the show.”

It’s couples getting engaged that sometimes aren’t even shown. I think they only show what they find most entertaining.

The allegations elicited a response from Nick Lachey, who said, “It’s a fair observation, but the counter argument to that is that it’s not manipulated in the sense of attracting the people they’re attracted to.”

“I’ve been waiting to address that,” Raven told BuzzFeed. “I consider myself a black woman. So it’s hurtful to me. I also ended up with an African man. So I’m just confused why they talk about race like we don’t have diversity on the show.”

“I love that this is a discussion topic, but being really there, I’d like to offer that this demographic of women couldn’t make successful connections, not because of the color of their skin or production, but maybe because of the men who were on the other side of the wall.”

She continued: “I’m not throwing anyone under the bus, but we have to build connections through a wall. And if you can’t, because people on the other side aren’t looking for what you have to offer, then you’re not a part of the story. I hate that.”

“It’s not that anyone is being taken out, there weren’t any other couples that came off the show – other than the ones you guys saw. I was honestly surprised, this was one of the most diverse casts I’ve ever seen, there were so many other black women, and it was so nice to have this experience with them.”

“Unfortunately a lot of the guys who got cast on the other side weren’t looking for that. There are receipts from some of these guys specifically saying that’s not something they’re looking for. So to me that’s what we should be doing talk about.”

SK added, “The whole idea of ​​the show is to go beyond places you wouldn’t normally think of. Coming from someone who ended up stepping outside of her color, I was very surprised when I saw that.”

“SK and I are a lot of people who root black for everyone. We love that,” Raven continued, “that’s who we are, we really embrace that side of our culture. Just for me personally, as a different woman of color , it was such a sting.”
