Why does everyone hate it so much? If your argument is there is no WhitePeopleMeet.com stfu because you could make one instead of whining.


I think it's just stupid. There's no need for a dating site that caters only to black people, when you can filter other dating sites' results by race, yourself. Also, it's little more than a troll-magnet.

As for the "you can go make one of your own!" Sure. But THAT one wouldn't fly. People would attack it for being "racist", just the same as we are attacking this one for the same thing.
Probably because white people are the majority in the U.S, and It's around basically the for the same reasons we have specific colleges, they have FarmersMeet.Com and ChristianMingle.com ....


Yes they do. Which are also stupid. There's no reason to be so specific, when someone can sift through their results, as tightly as they want to.

They all promote a sense of segregation. Which is what we're supposed to be working against.



Lmao you did not just quote Dr. King. What a moron.
If a person wants to join or create any site, it's their business.
There are porn sites that cater to certain fetishes, there are forums/websites that cater to certain age groups of people and FACEBOOK itself was ONLY available to people who attended colleges--but because its a site where BLACK people could meet only BLACK people to have relationships with, it's racist? You sound like an idiot.

Not only are there black people meet, but christians meet or some crap. Don't you think it's an attempt of segregation? Like saying you only have to associate or reproduce with a certain type of person? It's all bull crap in my opinion.
Who exactly hates the idea of such a website so much? Doing such a thing just seems silly.

I could see people not caring about such an organization, or even thinking it's silly... like that amish dating service (yes that's a thing). You may even hate the kind of people who would use it.

But why would you hate the site itself?

It's really no worse than any other demographic-based dating site. They're aimed at a specific population; seniors, blacks, even farmers for god's sake are included in this ploy to scrape out a buck from some desperate people.

keep in mind, there are those out there that see interracial dating where one party is white to be racial oppression, and that argue for "separate but equal" to become a modern concept, usually without realising how we tried that once, and it kinda failed.

man, I remember this one thing I saw, a website of a woman who reviewed Firefly and declared it to be one of the worst shows she'd ever seen, irredeemably racist, sexist and misogynistic, and as example of the racism, she cited Zoe being married to one white man, and addressing another one as "sir" within the first five minutes ( you remember the first five minutes of the pilot, right? where Zoe was still Corporal Alleyne, and reporting to someone who outranked her? though, it was a little jarring to see a Sergeant being addressed as "sir," but I wrote that off as "500 years of cultural drift" considering everyone seemed to be doing it )

What if you like that freaky s**t, like watching people die or w.e . They have websites for that, that do not show up on google searches. ( I had a friend who would show me creepy stuff all the time. ) Also (NOT SUPPORTING IT AT ALL!!) But child pornography and stuff is never shown.


I think there's a significant difference between trying to find graphic imagery of questionable ethics, and trying to find a date...

Don't get me wrong. I get it. I get the idea behind the site. But the fact is, like it or not...it's kinda ******** racist.
Because you have a prefrence doesn't make you racist,


I agree, actually. My point is that the idea of an exclusive website is racist. More specifically, it's segregationist.

like someone said about the model industry, growing up I honestly thought being black made me ugly, It didn't really bother me because I accepted this as fact. The reason they have BET and JET magazine is because media is mostly white, most times black people are pictured as thugs, hoes, rapists and murderers. Whens the last time a chick flick came out and it had a black couple? That WASN'T a Tyler Perry movie?


It's a mark of the population density. Besides, why would you "need" a chick flick that centers around a black couple? I'm of the mind that it doesn't matter who the couple are. A flick's a flick. Although I'm not much for chick-flicks, myself, but that's aside from the point.
Not saying it's needed but having a movie with that was positive around black people wouldn't be bad. I absolutely hate madea movies. But anyway the whole point I brought it up is because it's always a white couple never asian, hispanic or black.


*shrug* Tell someone to make them. It's not that they can't or won't. Just nobody's ever put that much thought into it, I'd wager.

In america, the land of diversity! Or how the black guy dies first in 99 percent of scary movies.


I don't think that's actually accurate. I've seen a lot of slasher flicks, and it's usually a white woman. At least, in the 80s. I kinda dropped off the horror scene from 96 onward. They started to really suck. I truly was born in the wrong era...

Quote:
Also usually when a "black woman" is depicted she's obviously mixed.


Queen Latifa isn't mixed, that I'm aware. And didn't she do that semi-chick-flick? The one where she's told she's dying, and decides to actually live life to the fullest, and meets her dream guy, and s**t...?

Quote:
It just slightly bothers me that's all. And I'm not going to get into an argument over what's racists and what isn't I'm just pointing out what i've noticed, maybe things you haven't.


Yes, but the problem I have, is that everyone bitches about "there's no black *insert*! " But why don't any of them take it as an opportunity to do it, themselves?

Also, I just get annoyed with everyone being so conscious about race. We're supposed to be colorblind, now. Who gives a ******** what the skin tone ratio in any field is? Not me.

Hell, the only racial bias I have, is sexual. I don't even know why. I just know that Asian girls tend to really be ******** hot, and most other breeds...not quite so much.

I don't really care. There are plenty of other dating sites to join that include all races. And I see no issue about it being so selective anyway. Some people might just prefer to only date black people. We all have preferences, that doesn't mean they're wrong or racist.

I also see no issue with religious dating sites. I know there's at least one for Christians and another for Muslims. It makes sense if you only are looking to date someone of a specific faith.

further, I think her AI was programmed by Max Headroom.
