I just wanna say that if someone made a whitepeoplemeet.com and had tv commercials for it, we’d be called racist lol.
its called okcupid, match.com, etc. there are white people on black people meet. no one’s gonna arrest you if you sign up.
Yup, here are some studies on white racist dating sites
- On Dating Sites: Fewer than 7% of men stated a racial preference for Black women. Okcupid proclaims explicitly based on messaging patterns “racism is alive and well”
- Dating sites are not PoC friendly hence safe spaces such as “Blackpeoplemeet”
Clearly there already are websites for only white people when 93% of users don’t want to date Black women :)
Overwhelming majority of American dating sites proves people do NOT like to date POC (TIME article), specifically BLACK WOMEN AND ASIAN MEN

Try again, white people. Just like with the BET whine y’all do, you don’t realize you own and dominate everything, you just don’t call it “white” whatever— you don’t have to. Racists stats prove it.
"I am a lesbian woman of Color whose children eat regularly because I work in a university. If their full bellies make me fail to recognize my commonality with a woman of Color whose children do not eat because she cannot find work, or who has no children because her insides are rotted from home abortions and sterilization; if I fail to recognize the lesbian who chooses not to have children, the woman who remains closeted because her homophobic community is her only life support, the woman who chooses silence instead of another death, the woman who is terrified lest my anger trigger the explosion of hers; if I fail to recognize them as other faces of myself, then I am contributing not only to each of their oppressions but also to my own, and the anger which stands between us, then must be used for clarity and mutual empowerment, not for evasion by guilt or for further separation."

"I am not a racist, and I do not subscribe to any of the tenets of racism. But the seed of racism has been firmly planted in the hearts of most American whites ever since the beginning of that country. This seed of racism has rooted itself so deeply in the subconsciousness of many American whites that they themselves ofttimes are not even aware of its existence, but it can be easily detected in their thoughts, their words, and in their deeds."
