But now there is a dating site, called Where White People Meet, that aims to be as long on romance as it is short on pigmentation. I just believe it’s hypocrisy to say ‘one group can do this, but another can’t.'” The site was indeed criticized as racist by many online.
he and his wife got the idea to start the site as a retirement business after repeatedly seeing TV ads for the dating site Black People “The last thing in the world I am is racist," the Where White People founder told the paper on Monday. Still others have criticized the criticism as being an example of reverse-racism against white Americans, that ever-persecuted racial majority.
Social media circulation may have helped boost membership, but it drew negative reactions from Twitter users.
“$4 to meet fellow white supremacists seems a bit steep considering how easy Trump has made it for you to be open about it,” user @alexpow tweeted to the site’s official Twitter handle.
NAACP Salt Lake branch President Jeanetta Williams called it “odd” to have such an ad in a state that is 91 percent white, according to 2014 census estimates.
"I just thought it was kind of strange they would put it in Utah," she told the Salt Lake Tribune. So you're going to put up billboards here so you can meet other white singles?
Every day you can meet white singles.” Williams said she didn't find the website or billboard to be hostile to people of color who live in the area.
