Dr. Misee Harris is a woman on a mission to become America’s first Bachelorette.  I received a delightful email from Dr. Harris informing me that she would be the next Bachelorette — she hopes. Although I don’t particularly care for the Bachelor/Bachelorette show, I will cheer Dr. Harris on and hope that she indeed does become America’s first black Bachelorette.  I think America is past ready to have a black bachelorette.  We are after all in 2013.

Many are wondering if Dr. Harris made it, if she would be a part of a swirling couple (interracial with a white, Asian or Latino man), but Dr. Harris is looking for the man with the best qualities and character, regardless of his race.  I look forward to the diversity of the candidates, but if Dr. Harris did choose a white guy, she would draw the ire of black folks across the land.  But it will be great for ratings!

After 25 seasons on the air, ABC’s reality dating game show, “The Bachelor/Bachelorette” has managed to fulfill a void for various eligible contestants. However, to the disappointment of many fans, the show’s lack of diversity has raised questions as to why there has never been a non-white bachelor/bachelorette.  Well look no further, Lexington, KY pediatric dentist, Dr. Misee Harris is now vying to become the show’s first African American hopeful in the leading role.  Dr. Harris has promised to bring a better image to the role and promises to keep it classy.

Dr. Harris is a graduate of Columbia Central High School. She continued her education at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, earning a B.S. Degree in Biology. But that wasn’t enough, she then completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree at the University of Kentucky and is completing a residency in Pediatric Dentistry. When she’s not making rounds at the hospital, Dr. Harris enjoys thrift shopping, making jewelry, modeling, and watching reality television (of course). In addition, Dr. Harris is kept quite busy entertaining her 4-year-old Britany Spaniel, Grace.

Not only does this small town girl has her eyes set on Hollywood, she is dedicated to several charitable causes.  Dr. Harris helps families who have chilidren with autsim obtain top dental care.  Many are unable to cooperate and must have anesthesia for the most basic dental screenings.  Dr. Harris puts parents and patients at ease to provide this service.  Dr. Harris also attends to low income patients as she strives for health dental care in children.  An avid dog lover, Dr. Harris never wants to see a homeless dog and works with shelters to make sure they can find good adoptive homes.  Another cause that Dr. Harris supports is “Shoes for Children” working with shoe stores to provide shoes for families who can’t afford them.  These are all worthwhile causes and Dr. Harris holds them near to her heart.
