“White only” dating site isn’t racist

Before if you wanted to meet exclusively white singles, you’d have to go to places like a Michael Buble concert, a Trump rally, Abercrombie and Fitch, anywhere they sell juice, or Virginia.

 

Now there is wherewhitepeoplemeet.com, the new site for white people that are looking to date other white people.

Ever since the billboard above was discovered, the social justice warriors of the Internet went into frenzy posting article after article about the inexcusable racism and how the site should be taken down.

 

Sam Russell, the founder of the website said in an interview with The Washington Post “The last thing I am is a racist. I dated a black woman once. I help raise a young black man,” and later goes on to say “I just believe it’s hypocrisy to say ‘one group can do this, but another group can’t.”

 

Although I think it’s funny when white people use the “I’m not racist, ONCE I did this thing with a coloured person” argument, I actually completely agree with him.

 

I know the topic of race is a sensitive and there are a lot of problems regarding racism in the world today. This is not one of them. Before you cast me as a racist, just hear me out.

 

When you look at all the exclusivity in dating websites out there, it gets very specific when it comes to finding traits in someone you want to hook up with or spend the rest your life with. A part from the pages worth of questionnaires dating sites require, there are already sites out there that are geared towards satisfying exclusive needs.

 

There is Jdate.com if you who want to date specifically Jewish people.

There is Christianmingle.com if you want to date specifically Christians.

There is Blackpeoplemeet.com if you want to date specifically Black people.

There is Tallfriends.com if you want to specifically tall people.

There is even Glutenfreesingles.com if you want to specifically douche bags (Just jokes, settle down).

 

The reason dating websites getting more and more specific these days are because certain people are no longer willing to wait to find that special someone. Some generic dating sites put some people in a position to go on date after date with loser after loser until they found the right person. How do we bypass this problem? Make the requirements and field of view so specific that now you’re picking from a much smaller pool of people that are guaranteed to have at least a few similar interests as you. If you’re a black person looking for another black person, that’s you’re preference. Why should it be frowned upon the other way around?

 

When you are dating someone you hope to spend the rest of your life with, you want to be attracted to that person. Some people like brunettes, some people like blondes; some people like tall people, some like them short; some people like them fat, some like them skinny; some like them black, some like them white.

 

Racial equality is a two-way street. 1 has to equal 1. Obviously white only groups haven’t had stellar reputations in the past (for good reasons), but this site is a non-issue. People liking certain skin tones has always been a thing. Some white girls only date black guys, some black girls only date white guys, Indian parents only wanting Indian partners for their kids is an ever-real fact, and so on. People just heard the phrase “white only” and decided to get offended because The Walking Dead is a re-run and they needed something to kill time. I understand the negative stigma surrounding the term “white only,” but it doesn’t apply in this case.

 

The dumbest thing of all is the majority of people writing these articles and losing their minds on twitter are OTHER WHITE PEOPLE. It’s other white people who think it’ll make them look good to stick up for racial equality when they’re really only after retweets and comments praising them for their courage. “OMG, you’re such a good person Ashley ❤ ;p.” No Ashley, you just know how to fool people in 140 characters or less.

 

Lets put it into perspective. There are thousands of pornography sites out there with loads of categories dedicated to the wildest of things. There are broad categories like Teen, Lesbian, Gay, MILF, BDSM, Cartoon; and other categories that get ridiculously specific like feet, left-handed hand job, aquatic animal, and even (I’m not making this up) depressed clown. People are willing to go to into such specific detail when finding these videos to watch, and that’s only a 30-45 second commitment. Why wouldn’t people go into specific detail when choosing who they want to spend the rest of their life with?

 

I guess the whole point of this article is you should try to look at things from multiple perspectives. When it comes to physical attraction, preference doesn’t equal racist.

 

If you liked this article, please give it a like, share it with your friends and family, and if you hated it, all the more reason to share it. Show the world just how much of an asshole I am. Go get ‘em tiger. Lovers and haters alike, let me know what you think in the comment section down below.

 

That’s all I have to say and I just wanted to thank everyone who makes this blog a part of their weekly routine. The amount of views I’m getting surprises me every time I check the stats page and I thank you for it.

 

Thanks again and I’ll see you guys next week.
