Rachel Lindsay & Husband Bryan Abasolo Have 'Tough' Conversations About Race

Rachel Lindsay is opening up about how racism impacts her relationship with her husband Bryan Abasolo.

Speaking to ET, the 35-year-old attorney opened up about how being an interracial couple forced them to have thick skin.

“People were not receptive to our relationship at the end of [The Bachelorette]. So, we’ve always had to develop a thick skin and figure out how to navigate this world as an interracial couple. We did that from the very beginning,” she shared.

Rachel added that “what the world is going through right now, we’ve had the tough discussions about presenting ourselves as an interracial couple before, and how we want to raise our children. Bryan has always gotten it.”

Bryan and Rachel tied the knot just last year in August and while she knew she had always made the right choice in him, that feeling was solidified as they protest together for Black Lives Matter.

“Communication has always been the foundation of our relationship and we always have those tough conversations, so watching Bryan protest and scream ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and really get emotional in the whole experience … of course I look over and am like, ‘Gosh, I made the right decision, because he understands me and I understand him,’” she says.

This other star also has had tough conversations about race with their white partner.
