Yahoo- For those distracted by the black, brown and other faces of color on traditional dating sites, WhereWhitePeopleMeet.com has stepped in to solve your problem.
The site, which launched in early September, recently gained traction when an advertising billboard popped up outside Salt Lake City, Utah. In fact, membership has increased tenfold since Thursday, when the site had only 35 active members, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. As of press time, membership stands at 302 people.
According to the site’s welcome page, which features an image of the Statue of Liberty, Where place for people to find their “Soul Mate."
"People ask all the time ‘Why White People Meet’? I always say, why not? Just about every other race, religion and walk of life have dating websites, so why not Where White People Meet?” the welcome page reads.
The sole comment left on the welcome page reads, “Thanks for building this. I agree that we fully deserve our own site and it’s great that someone is brave enough to build it! Thanks.
Let me be clear, I am not saying that this is wrong. I am just saying that if you sign up for an all white dating site, in Utah no less, then you probably have a problem with everyone that doesn't look like you. Online dating is like the whitest shit ever. I don't know who first developed the concept but I can only imagine that their name was Travis or Kathy. I would say that the ratio of whites to minorities on the average, all inclusive dating site is that of the ratio of whites to minorities at the K-Swiss company Christmas party. If you find it THAT cumbersome to sift through the 20% of people whose skin color differs from yours than you are probably pretty prejudice. If the thought of a wasting one second of your life to swipe left on a black person inconveniences you so much that you feel the need to download a less effective, less popular app then it might be time to do some soul searching. Obviously there are a lot of white people that would prefer to date other white people. That's not all that foreign of a concept. However, if your dating pool consists of the majority and refuses to acknowledge that the minority even exists then you might be looking to date the wrong white people.
Hey, who am I to judge? Racists need love too, and it's better for society if we give them an easier way to find it. Anyone that thinks this is a bad idea clearly hasn't actively, unknowingly pursued a racist. You may not have accidentally gone on a date with a racist, but luckily I am here to tell you that I have, and 'awkward' doesn't even begin to describe the experience. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating. I went on a double date with a girl whose best friend's long time boyfriend was racist, but if you associate that closely with bigotry then you are just as guilty, am I right? I am not even talking about subtle racism. This dude had his head out the window of a taxi in the middle of New York City SCREAMING the 'N word' at a group of African Americans playing basketball. Let me tell you this. As a white male - that doesn't discriminate - I would never sign up 'WhereWhitePeopleMeet.com', but if that girl intends on going on anymore double dates then I would hope to God that she does. The reason that I have no problem with this site's existence is the same reason that I wasn't fully in favor of completely eradicating the Confederate flag. It helps me identify, and subsequently avoid, the people the type of people that I would rather not associate with.
