    Hi there,
    I am a young professional man of color who is looking to find connection through your app. I have been using your app for the past 8 or so years. Because I live in a small conservative town in a mostly white state, I pay yearly to have the premium features to talk with men farther away. When you took away the feature to be able to filter by race it has been hard for me to make connections with people who look like me and/or who are attracted to people of color. As I mentioned before I live in a small town and so I liked using that feature to meet people of color in or out of my small town. However, now I’m not able to meet people who seem to be attracted to me. I know that you all were trying to do right by the black community by taking away the race feature to make us all equal. The fact is that the users on this app don’t think as progressive as you all. There are still men who say they aren’t into me because I’m not white or put whites only on their profile. This app can say Black Lives Matter and Stop Asian Hate through another way on the app. We do appreciate your allyship. However, you are denying us the ability to find meaningful and safe connections. The ability to not search for men who accept me for who I am as a person of color is really discouraging. Please strongly consider my words and updating your app with a feature that allows me of color whether in small towns or not, to feel comfortable using your app and connecting with men who appreciate us for who we are.

    Thank you!
