Since black holes are pure gravity and thus sucks in everything that has mass (proving that light has mass and therefore mass=energy mass just vibrates slower) theoretically scientists say that a white hole would be the thing that would spew out everything that the black hole takes in

Stephen Hawking recently announced that Black Holes do in fact release INFORMATION - losing a bet in the process - in the form of Hawking Radiation.
At first it was thought that Hawking Radiation may release mass from the Black Hole, but was fine with standard laws because it didn't release any information about what's inside the black hole (ie, the stuff inside doesn't effect the stuff "leaving"). However, he's now said that the radiation just carries miniscule amounts of information.
The big importance of this is that it means everything that goes in will, eventually, go out in the form of the radiation. Which, in turn, means that Black Holes don't lead to alternate universes, wormholes, or white holes.
He didn't really want to admit it (let us not forget the bet), but he has because it's the truth of what he's found and calculated.
