But the creator of the website, Sam Russell, is refuting the claims, telling the Washington Post, “The last thing in the world I am is racist, I dated a black woman once. I helped raise a young black man … I just believe it’s hypocrisy to say, ‘one group can do this, but another can’t.’”
Just because people are attracted one particular race over another, it does not make them raciest. Look at the list of websites available to help someone find that person they are attracted to. There’s blackpeoplemeet.com, jdate.com, Tallfriends.com, Glutenfreesingles.com, Stachepassions.com, Farmersonly.com, Christianmingle.com, Asiandating.com… heck there’s even a place for Furry’s to meet. If you don’t know what a Furry is, click the link.
All I’m saying, is that just because you’re not equal opportunity in bed room, it doesn’t mean you’re not equal opportunity everywhere else.
