Controversial dating site lets white people meet other white people | #blackpeoplemeet

White people who have struggled to find other white people to date, need panic no longer.

They can now use a website specifically designed to help Caucasians meet other Caucasians.

The aptly named WhereWhitePeopleMeet.com hit the web in late 2015, but is now gaining traction with more than 800 members – and a huge billboard in Utah’s West Valley City.

Despite its name, the website states that anyone from any race can join, so long as they are over 18. The site has a joining fee of $4 (£2.70).

“People join dating websites in hopes of finding that one true person that they can have a meaningful relationship with,” reads the site.

“With many choices out there, here are a few reasons why you should join ours.

“We believe that dating is about choices. You should be able to choose what dating sites you join based on your likes and preferences.”

The  site is now facing a backlash on social media, with comments such as: “$4 to meet fellow white supremacists seems a bit steep considering how easy Trump has made it for you to be open about it.”

But its creators have defended the concept: “We created our site as an alternative to other websites that cater to any race, creed, or religion. Such as @BlackPeopleMeet.”

It has also stressed that its intentions were “never meant to be racist or biased in any way.”

The site allows members to search by age, body type and ethnicity but does not seem to allow searches for same-sex relationships.

On a blog the founder explained: “People ask all the time ‘Why White People Meet’? I always say, why not? Just about every other race, religion and walk of life have dating websites?

“Our intentions in creating this dating website were never meant to be racist or biased in any way. In fact, my personal views are those of tolerance, love, acceptance and understanding.”
