WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – A billboard for WhereWhitePeopleMeet.com in Utah is turning heads and leaving residents with many unanswered questions.

Viewers are flooding our sister station, Fox 13‘s Facebook page with mixed reviews about this one.

And you can bet it’s a big talker right here in DFW on the CW33 Facebook page, too.

“I just don’t think it’s the way to teach our kids to love all when you see billboards like that,” Kim Gilbert told Fox 13.

“I just feel we should be past that whole mindset of staying within our own race and segregation pretty much,” explained Michelle Dessau.

Kayla Lemmon said she is opposed to the idea of dating sites aimed at a single race.

“I have a lot of friends who are biracial couples and they’re in love and they’re happy,” she said. “I don’t think we should have a dating site with only one race. I think it excludes someone who could be your soul mate and is a different color than you.”

Below is the information posted in the dating site’s “About Us” section:
