I saw the commercials for BlackPeopleMeet.com this morning.
Here’s the YT Videos….
Is it really that hard to see? For all the people that think this commercial isn't racist as hell, I challenge you to picture a commercial where every time they used the word black, they instead used white, this is where white people meet exciting white people, and tell me that the community wouldn't be just as outraged... People have a right to choose what they want in life, but a lot of it doesn't belong on advertisements and commercials.
Okay the statement "this is how black people meet", is a generalization which is a form of racism, It is absolutely unacceptable to say that this is the only way people of color meet and that they only date or have relationships with other people of color. How could anyone in their right mind think it OK to air such an inaccurate and ignorant statement to millions of people?! This will only fuel the idea of separation of races. Discriminating against white people being proud to be white is just as heinous as discriminating against blacks who are proud to be black.
It's funny how African Americans want integration but then they make stuff like black radio, or black TV, or magazine, or college fund, or make a website like this. They segregate themselves and then say they don't like segregation. Am I missing something here, or should I just shut my mouth before someone labels me?
I think for $h!ts and giggles, I’m going to start up a membership on this website. I'm a white guy (Accually, I’m half greek and have olive skin), and if I try to join this website, will I be denied? And if so, can I run out into the streets yelling discrimnation?
