A public Facebook group for gay men is under fire for openly discriminating against people of color, San Diego Gay and Lesbian News reports.
“Muscle Bear” is a public Facebook group for (white) guys who are into hairy (white) muscular men with nearly 20,000 (white) members. When a person first tries to join, they are confronted with a series of questions/statements.
“Where are you from?” The second, however, says: “If you are Asian or African do not join the group because it will be blocked from this group.”
According to San Diego Gay & Lesbian News, one member spoke up about the questionnaire.
“As a member, this makes us all appear to be racists by being complicit,” wrote one member in the group. “Just no-one will address the matter. So if you know the admins, I’m asking people to reach out and ask why this has been added. And if it’s not removed, I’m asking people to quit and report the group as hate speech.”
