You must be Black to sign up at this site. If someone started a dating site for Whites only. IT would be considered racist, would it not?

    No, the site is not racist

    the site for blacks to meet blacks is not racist. there so many black females wanting to meet black men. when you go on pof and seniormeet,match and ehormany the white men do not want to date black woman. i want to meet to date someone my race i love my black men and so do white woman and mexican woman. we need our men there are plenty of mexican men and white men on these sites who only want to date white or mexican woman woman do you call them racist. there will always be some brothers who want to date out of the race. but we want the men who love their sisters for who we are. and love who they are.and do not have to be with a white woman to feel good about their self.
    i ve dated white men for the last 10 years and tires as hell of them.
    i understand why other woman want to date them we teach them to be flexable and to listen to others opinions not be so judgemental of others like white men are.
    my brothers where are you,,,,we need you

    The existence of black people meet is a consequence of being racially profiled on other dating sites. Much in the way ethnic neighborhoods form when an ethnicity is marginalized by the majority.

    Look at the statistics of OK cupid, they publish them openly. Black women have the lowest response rate, and I am sure it is similar on other sites.

    and you think since Black women haave the lowest response rate that it is racially motivated? maybe the women going on those sites have crappy personalities?

    Assuming someone has a crappy personality based on their race is the definition of racial profiling.
  • schjaz heathen... 2013/12/15 06:16:35

    you keep reading race into it. the only person assuming is you.....yeah, I am sure its accurate to say that no black woman has a crappy personality....heavy sigh.
  • heathen... schjaz 2014/06/01 20:25:52 (edited)

    So.... how would anyone know someones personality without ever talking to them? Once again: Assuming someones characteristics based solely on race is the definition of racism. I keep bringing logic into this... 'heavy sigh'.

    Frankly I admire a lot of blacks because they're PROUD of being black and refuse to apologize for it. I'm so sick of PC! There's a lot of reasons why they might just want to stick only to other black people. Maybe they find other blacks more attractive than other races. Or feel like it's easier to relate to other blacks. Or think interracial dating would cause too many problems. Whatever the reason that's their business.

    Do you admire Whites that are proud of being white and are unaplogetic for it?
    The question did not concern personal preferences but an entire site that only allows Blacks.

    Who care's every thing is Racist, non whites take the back seat to Blacks, Just go to qualified actual factual websites and google statistics on ethnic facts, did you know most blue collar workers are black or minority and they have the highest percentage of pub over paid under worked government jobs, GO CHECK THE STATISTIC'S People and look at the injustice going on and you just voted in a person that supports injustice!

    All Black sites are inherently racist by virtue of identifying it as Black. Every log onto any Black "news sites"....Black Voices, The Grio, The Root. Everything is from a race/racist viewpoint. Where is a sista to go to get legit news?

    Funny how all of these racial sites feel this is okay, but like you said, if there was a site for whites only, then minorities and the media would be up in arms calling it racist. Typical double standard.

    there are sites for whites only . they just do not say they are. but you try to date or be friends on those sites and you get no reponse. so there is the unspoken words on those sites . but read between the lines. put up a black picture and put up a profile and see what kind of response you get .i dare you try it

    I did NOT find any requirement that "You must be Black to sign up at this site." It may be a figment of your imagination. Please quote the EXACT restriction statement.
  • schjaz Kaleoku... 2013/02/04 17:53:38

    Please refer to the NAME of the site......black people meet. NO other race is invited to sign up.

    That still does not RESTRICT others from joining, just as the NAACP is open to people of all races.

    Yet, they never defend conservative blacks, and never denounce the acts of actual racist groups like the Black Panthers.

    The NAACP is open to people only on one side of the political spectrum. That is the reality.

    The issue, however, is racial restrictions, not political restrictions.

    A purpose and a restriction are two different things, Grasshoppa! There are no restrictions on membership. By misrepresenting their purpose as an actual restriction, you have created a straw man:

    "A straw man or straw person, also known in the UK as an Aunt Sally,[1][2] is a type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.[3] To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the "straw man"), and to refute it, without ever having actually refuted the original position.[3][4] This technique has been used throughout history in polemical debate, particularly in arguments about highly charged, emotional issues." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    Its a place for Blacks to meet....its what they say in their mission statement. Read it yourself. A mission statement is a PURPOSE and yes, it can impose restrictions. sheesh.

    Anything "can" impose restrictions. This dating site, however, does not actually impose restrictions. Anyone can join.
  • schjaz Kaleoku... 2013/02/07 16:17:39

    It does not state anywhere that all races are welcome. It specifically targets Blacks and repeats that mantra over and over. IT plainly states ..BlackPeopleMeet.com is the largest black dating site for black singles in
    the U.S. Founded in 2002, BlackPeopleMeet.com has built the largest community of African-American singles looking for love, relationships, friendship and dates.
    Do you see where it says the site is for BLACK SINGLES?
    come on...sheesh.

    Once again: ANYONE can join. The site may be intended for black singles, but does NOT restrict membership. Therefore, by definition, it is not "racist."

    Would it be racist for someone to initiate a White dating site? There would be such a hullaballoo that it would be heard all over the media. Read the Black dating site mission statement. It clearly states that it is for Blacks to meet Blacks. THATS THEIR MISSION.

    check this out black woman have always had big butts and will always have them without implants. so give us a break the sisters have what you want the brothers, the butt, the braids, the color not to be sprayed brown..
    we have what you want and always have. coby brant has a cute wife and still play on her.
    i wonder whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?????????...
    we do not have crappy personalities we are just not a b-------------- like most woman and so do not play those games like you woman do to get men . you either like us or you dont. if you dont we move on no fuss.
    so try to understand us before attacking us. funny you like our men and guess who their mother is a black woman.so stop hating on the sisters.
    think why you do not like your men???????????????????????????

    To be honest- I really don't care. I have better things to do with my time than to keep score with other people. I just try to accept other people and live my life. Would I care if there was an "Irish only" or "Asian only" dating site? Na- my life is bigger than all that .

    ahh you are in great denial of your racist heart...not upset over it? My dear you ramble on and on about it and then do a racist blog about it? LOL

    I see nothing from you on other love interests and what they are looking for.

    religion is a choice? SO is race when it comes to dating. I can only guess maybe you are divorced from a black man and found this on his computer cheating on you. That would explaion alot of the racist rage coming from you. I suggest anger management if possible for you. I can only hope I have helped. cartoons on anger management

    My answer was supposed to be "YES, THIS SITE IS RACIST AS H€ LL!" If there were a whites only dating site, there'd be a riot. Black people already have they're own churches, tv channel (BET network), and Ebony magazine. Even Latinos have Univision. I guess, if we are playing by "the rules" then technically, whites are being discriminated against and disenfranchised.
