Qualifications like “non-smoker” or “must be vegan” are common deal breakers but it’s now normal to see potentially discriminatory posts as well.

Having a “type” is not a new thing but more dating apps now like The League, Once, and Scruff are letting users search by ethnicity which gives them the option to filter out a particular ethnic group.

Here goes: Wow, just what men of color who like white men need to hear … Why don’t you feel and act this way instead of that way? How much you’ve internalized all the world’s racism and homophobia?

Translation: the guy is interested in only white or Hispanic men and doesn’t want any black or Asian guys to message him.

It was a strong admonition in the form of a blog post brought to my attention via a Facebook share. ” asks the author, whose chief complaint seems to be having to put up with reading or watching “another rambling think piece or whiny You Tube video about some dejected and rejected black gay man (or any other ethnicity) waxing poetic about how racist it is for white gay men to rebuke them based solely on race…” So bothered by this, the author promises, one more post and “I am going to smash my head through a wall, seriously…” The comment I began to write was so visceral (and long), I decided to turn it into a blog post.

But know this, niggers who are sick of me and others like me expressing our hurt feelings over racist gay men: one significant factor in my turning to white men (and white people in general) was the fact that my tired, black boy ass was fed up with black people, starting with my family, all up in my face aggressively, trying to tell me how the fuck to live my life!
