Reinstate ethnicity filter
Removal of ethnicity filter discriminates against my personal sexual preference. If you remove the ethnicity filter based on percrieved discrimination (this is after all Grindr and not the bloody Times Magazine); stop ridiing the political and woke band wagon and brown nosing to said political pressure. If you want to truely take a stand against discrimination then remove ALL the filters as they too are discriminatory. Discrimination doesnt only apply to race. Your removal of the filter has discriminated against my preference and my freedom of choice. So grow a backbone, drop the political insanity and either reinstate the filter or remove all filters.
Well put! bear in mind that everyone has got the right to their sexual preferences, not only those who would be classed as "minority". Caucasian people shouldn't be forbidden to use the ethnicity filter. They're not going to see my money until the ethnicity filter is back because currently they're failing to help me finding a match.

Ethnicity filter allows for minorities to find each other in an area. By removing it you have made it difficult for ethnic minorities to find, support and love each other. Removing it was a tone deaf (if not well meaning) solution to complicated problems that were brought up during the Black Lives Matter protests. Instead of grappling with the difficult issue of racism on Grindr and amongst lgbtq+ people, a simple solution was made, which as usual, harmed the very people you was trying to help.

Please please reinstate the ethnicity filter...we all have preferances..if you really want to do what is right allow your users full freedom of choice.

I agree that the filter should be reinstated but this comment could have came across ad less demanding and preachy
I totally agree with the comment posted. Bring ethnicity filter back!!
It was racist in itself to remove the filter. Knowing jolly well that once you are in a white area you cannot find your own as a minority, while the majority white can find what they want but Grindr got on the back of the timing blm activity. To become more racist while suggesting it was to become more woke and correct
