    What do you think? Is a white only dating site racist?

    So what? If White people want to only mingle with their own kind they have the right to do that just like any other culture in this country and around the world. Frankly, I don't see anything wrong with it and I am an AA. Go for it. Hope you find someone who brings you happiness and doesn't just want to screw you around, if you know what I mean!

    No, I don't think it is.

    Don;t people have the right to select mates whose characters and backgrounds make a good meld with theirs?

    I think they do.

    I might not agree with them about what is important but we ALL have some minimum standards for selected our mates.

    the fact that they have every right to meet whomever they want and date whomever they want doesn't make it not racist if that's their primary consideration.

    it IS racist. but in that regard, they have the right to be.

    i think that b/c on a regular dating site, they'd be able to choose to date only people of their race. it's the fact that they only want white people anywhere near them that makes them racist.

    I don't think this makes anyone racist either. What make someone racist is when they discriminate against someone just because of their race. Wanting to live whithin your own race is not racist. It is what is prefered by that person. That don't mean that they think all other races are any less human. If someone wanted to stick to their own race that is up to them. I don't think it is right to force people to live a certain way if they don't want to. But then again, this is just my opinion.

    Actually, wanting to live within your own kind IS racist. You might have the right to be in certain circumstances, but you have to call it what it is. And what is preferred is one thing. They have the right to pick and choose. But isolating yourself by race is, by definition,

    By the way, you cannot refuse to sell a home to someone of another race. you cannot lead a person away from 'white' areas if they are a minority and you are a realtor. So I'd disagree with you.

    The right to private association is not innately racist.
