I’d like the ethnicity filter back - except you have to be smart about it.
The ethnicity filter can be back with a small change so you can stop people from filtering out people of color.
It has been impossible for me, as a person of color, to find other people of color. I am an Asian man who are interested in black men and i live in a predominantly white area. It’s been impossible.
The whole reason why the filter was bad was people filtering out people of color. So small tweaks can restore it and still make it not racist:
-You can make the ethnicity filter temporary by one search. So you can’t keep on seeing just your race preference. Users will have to select each time if they want to find by a certain race. Then reset it next time they go back to main profile.
- or make “Asian” or “black” or “latino” a tribe and ignore the race filter all together.
Hope it helps

Bring it back
So an ethnicity filter is ok only if you just filter out white people?

Yeah Jeff, that's what I was thinking.
So basically, your idea is you should be able to filter out white ppl, but not anyone else?? 😅
