    But i thought you wanted to add different ethnicities into everything. Also OT, i've seen quite a few dating sites that look as if they're targetted just for white folks in their advertisements.
    I didnt mean me, I meant the country iteself.

    If you read the title, I did say racist against White people
    :rolleyes:

    There are plenty of other sites out there are for black people you know? . . ie black chat and etc.

    I personally can't see wrong with it - big deal, there is a website where black people can date their own race, I have no problem or issue against it.

    EDIT: If the same happened with white people, again that wouldn't bother me.

    Right, well in my opinion in this country, you should add ethnicity into everything, the Police force etc to make them less segregated. So why make a dating website for dark people when if we made one for only white people we would be shot down!!!!
    Well the reason why there are race-related dating sites in this country is because the majority of the population is white so a dating site for black people only is like so that they can meet others who are same race if they prefer to date their own race.

    In south Africa they have websites like that for white people as well since they are a minority in that country.

    Well, if you'd joined an exclusively white (or black) dating website, you're suggesting rather strongly that it's white (or black) people you're interested in dating.
    I can't believe you had to explain that.

    It's not racist. Learn the bloody definition.

    I guess i'm a racist, because i agree with the facts that east asians are smarter than every other race and black Africans have the lowest IQ.

    Again, I said is it racist not I think this ****** is racist!!!!!!!

    OK... OP. You have heard of dictionaries? I suggest you use one. Here's what I found:

    The noun has one meaning:

    Meaning #1: a person with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others
    Synonym: racialist

    The adjective racist has 2 meanings:

    Meaning #1: based on racial intolerance

    Meaning #2: discriminatory especially on the basis of race or religion
    Synonyms: antiblack, anti-Semitic, anti-Semite


    Now, explain how any of those definitions hold with the site please, then I may take your argument seriously.

    Well obviously I get that!

    But people can be interested in another race who are of a different race. People have different preferences. If this is a site for Black people they can find them there. Goodness sakes

    I personally wouldn't say its racist at all tbh, its just a matter of preference from the individual seeking - after all if you search 'Ivory dating', you'll notice dating sites/opportunities are there too - just not so ''in your face'' as they are for black ''ebony'' people! . . .

    Again, I am not making an arguement I am asking people if they think it is racist. If i changed it to... Do you think this is; Racist, Discrimination, Inequality, Segregation, Singling Out of one Race... would that make you happy?

    Thats stupid! Gay people have gay bars so that its easier for them to meet other gays since its hard for them to meet fellow homosexuals.And like someone already pointed out straight people can go there as well.
