    It's not just that having the BASIC functionality of an ethnicity filter isn't racist. That's obvious. But the case is stronger than that. NOT having the ethnicity filter is racist. Many, if not most, used the filter to actively seek out minorities and include them, not to exclude them. Grindr had to have an awfully poor opinion of its own users to think otherwise. But eliminating the filter, all I see now on my screen is a sea of white. I'm white myself but this isn't what I want to see. I want to be able to share love with my beautiful black brothers and Asian brothers and Middle Eastern brothers, etc. It's stupid and wrong to assume that a filter itself is racist. People who used it that way are the minority and will continue to exclude. By taking away the filter you did nothing to stop that. All you did was make it harder TO INCLUDE.

    Bring back the ethnicity filter, Grindr! Stop supporting exclusion!!
