Rachel Lindsay is gorgeous, accomplished and charming. And it so happens, she also happens to be black, and will be the first Bachelorette of color on the 13th season of the show. What took so damn long? (Incidentally, The Bachelor has had 21 seasons and has yet to have a black bachelor.)

ABC's obvious diversity issues aside, it's time for us Texans to celebrate one of our own with some fun facts about her.
