Goodness, Flawless, Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell Are Back Together

 Goodness, Flawless, Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell Are Back Together 





One month after Lone ranger star Matt James parted ways with his season's champ, Rachael Kirkconnell, on public TV, refering to her set of experiences of bigoted activities and obliviousness, the couple are reviving their relationship. Indeed, truly. After the entirety of that. We'd quote something from Get Out, yet to be perfectly honest, we're depleted. The team have been seen together as of late in both New York City and Los Angeles, with James currently affirming to Individuals that



they’re indeed back in each other’s romantic orbits. “I’ve seen Rachael a handful of times,” he explained. “I’m not pursuing any relationships right now outside of that. I said I was going to focus on my relationship with her and that means focusing on it.” If you’re confused about this reconciliation, it’s because it’s the antithesis of everything James stated during his Bachelor finale: At the time, he said that learning about Kirkconnell’s past, coupled with her initial defensiveness, made it clear that they “can’t be” together.

The most disappointing thing for me was having to explain to you why what I saw was problematic and why I was so upset. And that’s why it was problematic,” James explained to her in the March 15 finale. “When I questioned our relationship, it was in the context of you not fully understanding my Blackness and what it means to be a Black man in America. And what it would mean for our kids when I saw those things that were floating around the Internet. And it broke my heart, because this is the last conversation I thought we’d be having.” James was 

referring to photographs that emerged of Kirkconnell gleefully attending an antebellum-South-themed party in college. While not discussed in the finale, social media users have also unearthed Kirkconnell’s history of “liking” photos of Confederate imagery.

Through tears, Kirkconnell accepted James’s engagement breakup in the finale, and blamed her “ignorance” for her past actions. She has since been keeping her social media followers appraised with the steps she’s taking towards her antiracism education, in addition to admonishing supporters who have been sending racist insults to James. As for James, he’s expressed frustration that he had to take on the role of a racism educator for the franchise, stating that “we don’t have that chance to have that ignorance.” Let’s check in with Chris Harrison to see how he’s feeling about this. Not.
