There have been many times when I have been on Grindr – a dating and/or hookup app for gay men – and I have received messages from folks, ranging from “you’re a racist” to “so why aren’t you into white guys?
” Even when I use another gay dating/hookup app primarily used by people of color (POC), Jack’d, I still get those outrageous, obscene, racist messages.
