Only black people are allowed to get mad about racism. Only women are allowed to get mad about double standards.
@Ryanlglass, shots fired
@Ryanlglass, I've been shot!!!
@fettman1138, shots trigger my twitter induced PTSD
@Ryanlglass, the truth said loud and proud ladies and gentleman
@Ryanlglass, feel like depending on the location it may be hard to find someone of the same ethnicity so these sights aren't always bad, but they will always attract racists aswell soooo...
@Ryanlglass, I love you.
@Ryanlglass, If I could upvote you more than once, I would.
@Ryanlglass, 🎵did you know that you're my heeeroooo🎵
@Ryanlglass, sucks to be a white man these days
@Ryanlglass, but black people don't think that's racist? I've never once heard a man of color say anything about white channels. I didn't even know it was a thing. I've only heard white people complain about BET and black movies.
@Downvote God, whats a white channel? Hallmark?
@Traceratops , the Grammys for example. I mean white channels of entertainment, not television channels.
@Ryanlglass, I love you. SO MUCH
@Ryanlglass, you're the real mvp
@Ryanlglass, I'd also like to add that only liberals and social conservatives can get offended.
@Aegislash, why they gotta be with their ethnicity tho, or why can't they just use a normal sight and just sift out the races they aren't attracted to. This whole thing is a rather frivolous example, but it's still a good one.
@The Megaton Bomb, I agree that people should just sift through and filletr out people they aren't attracted to, but if there's a demand for these sights and someone can make money off of them, then I guess no in can stop them.
@Aegislash, then I guess I don't see the necessity or why the other sights can just add an extra filter option (or why people can't use it).
@Aegislash, I can't type
@The Megaton Bomb, I guess it's also about what the other person wants in a partner, so going to a black only sight ensures that the person would be interested in you too. A regular sight could be used though.
@The Megaton Bomb, it's not that different from Asian only, Christian mingle, Latinos only, etc. People are just lazy and want everything served and ready to use.
@mayora13, well racism did basically start from laziness...
@TheIbarra, I joined Blackpeoplemeat.com totally not what I thought but fapped anyway
@TheIbarra, woah, woah, why not "damn gay"?! Hahaha
Is there a website to meet Mexican singles? #brownlivesmatter
@CriTiKa1, Not that I know of, but there's a site for people who want to use cheese while having sex. Kraft singles .com
@CriTiKa1, just go to Mexico with a green card, even more effective at getting you laid
So here's the thing - it was a sign in a super white region of the country - which makes it kind of pointless. It's a lot harder for minorities to find partners, because they don't run into as many of themselves. If you're black, and black culture is important to you when you're looking for someone with whom to start a family, or Jewish, and Jewish culture is important to you, or Catholic, or Japanese, or a Steelers fan, or a vegan, or whatever, and that's important to you, whatever. Good luck. If you're a white person in Utah looking for another white person in Utah, ummmm... A generic dating website will probably work fine. That's the great thing about being in the majority. And this one will probably attract an especially racist crew, and not just regular old white people that like white culture and want white babies. But whatever. I don't care.
@Toad, eeeeew, Steelers fans.
@Toad, it's people like you that keep me from giving up on this community
Most people date their own race, I think they want their children to resemble themselves.
If you think EITHER is racist, then you're part of the problem.
Honestly, who really cares.
@The Milky Man, im pretty sure you should care....? Unless your egotistical.
@The Milky Man, Don't worry, I'm with you. I couldn't give any less shjts about these retarded social issues. I've got more important things (to me) to worry about than who I might offend.
Actually although I agree with the message, this is a terrible example. The second one says meet black singles meaning the person you're going to meet will be black, but you don't have to be. The first one says where where white people meet, which implies all parties will have to be white. But I say to each their own. If you only like white people then I doubt someone who isn't white would want to be with you in the first place or vice versa.
@BunnyGruff, I think you're looking way too far into it. One's a dating site for black people and one's a dating site for white people. Getting offended by a little naming difference is ridiculous.
@BunnyGruff, it doesn't say "where white people meet white people". It is only assumed. Just like it is equally assumed that black people meet black people at a sight that clearly distinguishes the members as black.
@BunnyGruff, Actually the second one is called "Black People Meet" implying that two or more black people meet each other.
@KermitSmash, actually that's what the first one is called, substituting white for black. The second one is called meet black singles. You essentially just reiterated my point without realizing it.
@VaporStrike, maybe if I had to look far, but I don't. It's in English and I'm just reading the literal meaning of the words. A better statement would be I'm not reading far enough into this. What I said would be the most direct meaning of those phrases. Also I don't get offended. I'm saying the person who put this together had an agenda but wasn't smart enough to pull it off properly. The examples they gave were flawed. Maybe I guess if English is your second language or reading isn't your strong suit then the creators message is conveyed better because of the image the banners show.
@BunnyGruff, If you look at the top left of the bottom picture, it does in fact say "BlackPeopleMeet". The "Meet black singles near you" isn't the site name.
Read the top left corner of the bottom picture.
@BunnyGruff, these are two way sites. Meet black singles is a site for only black people. You have to be black so that the other person you meet gets the same deal you did. Finding a black single. They also went to the website and made a profile looking for black single people, so obviously you'd have to be black to use the site as well.
@Jakeers, wait, you used logic...I don't know if that's allowed when talking about racism. I think you are only allowed to use your feelings and say "white people are racist!"
*saves so I can come back later and see the debates in the comments*
that's outrageous four dollars! I'm defiantly using the bottom site to meet singles.
@blowmedown , definitely. Lol but I thought the same thing bro
It's got to the point where straight white males are always victimised for being sexist racist and homophobic even when they are innocent
@Johnny B Goode, i have know clue why you're downvoted, it's true.
@Punny lad, because white people are scary
This reminds me of a Buzzfeed video that relayed the findings from a study done on dating websites and how often people from different races interacted with each other. It was kind of interesting to see stereotypes, among other things, in action like that.
@MayITakeYourHatSir, Yeah, I saw that video, it was really interesting.
@Corycogo5737, but at the same time *crys in black girl loneliness*
They have all kinds of dating sites for specific groups. Ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, cheaters, sugar daddies. There is no difference.
If you're someone who even cares that people think the first one is racist, then YOU are part of the problem. Don't give them attention, that's exactly what they want.
Here's how I handle things.. IDGAF.
It's actually a marketing ploy by one of the guys that created the black people meet site.
I think this is fine. We segregate ourselves all the time with stuff like that and BET and it's dumb
@Tokenblackguy, BET isn't even owned by a black person anymore...
@bayareagoddess, even worse
But where do I hi if I want pizza?
Both are racist
That's billboard is literally like 31 mile from my house!
No, if you want to legislate either of these out of existence, THEN you are indeed part of the problem. Otherwise you're just an opinionated cvnt.
Skin color is just a detail. If you restrict yourself to a certain detail when you are looking for your significant other, you're just stupid. You'd be like a person who is convinced only brunettes are suitable mates. You might miss out on the most amazing partner, just because you narrowed the search too much. If you, however, only specifically search in your own ethnic group because you have the weird idea that only 'they' are 'better', then you are a dick or a cunt. It is time you start opening your eyes and grow up.
Both are racist because there's no "Mexican Singles .com"
@TooGie, actually there is a Mexican one, it's not the same wording but I do recall there being one.
This man is a god damn Saint.
Do people think either are racist?
