“No chocolate nor rice”, “No orientals”, “Asians, reave me arone”, “I’m white and attractive but sorry, if you’re anything less, you’re not worth it. Sorry.”, “Is there a block all black button?”, “I block more Asian than the Great Wall of China.”
These are just some of the examples of racism populating Grindr profiles that Guy Anthony, Todrick Hall (pictured), Kory DeSoto, Kingsley, and Ryan James Yezak are asked to react to in a new video produced by Davey Wavey.
Asks Anthony: “How do we sort of infiltrate people’s minds and say like ‘black is okay, Asian is okay, white is okay’. We’re gay men. And we want to be loved. Because ultimately we all just want to love and be loved, so why can’t we focus on that part instead of our race?”
Added YouTuber Kingsley: “As a minority, if you see things like that all the time it can kind of be taxing and affect your self esteem and how you see yourself.”
