I'll volunteer as I don't mind taking all of the heat that would be thrown my way for it.

wow...how rude! gosh she's just asking a question. if u dont have an answer or suggestion then move on to the next post. u dont have to be insulting. did u catch the part when she said she's moving to charlotte in a few weeks? that means that she is unfamiliar with the charlotte single scene and perhaps someone could direct her to a good place. even the dullest adult could figure that out.

We'll have to agree to disagree. I also referenced Korean activities. I could have said Asian. In your view, that eliminates a race and would be racist. I don't see it that way. Groups of people may have cultural or ethnic ties. African Americans in this country do have a culture even if they can't pick a country in Africa to identify with.

I don't think someone asking that type of question is trying to be exclusionary or racist.

You people are funny (aka Charlotte KKK members), you really don't have anything else better than HATE on my little thread. If you don't have the info I need, mind your business and keep it moving.....

Hi, Ivy! I think this thread is a little weird in its responses, b/c two threads were merged. This thread - and then another one the same person posted a few minutes later about the same thing - only in that thread . . . the person said she didn't want to have to deal with street thugs and crimnal low-life, only wanted to know where to go to meet the upscale brothers. It was something that implied it was hard to find a black man in town who was not a thug or a criminal low-life, so it really sounded insulting - and my first reaction was - oh my - this is not a sincere post. That is why there are responses here that seem a little "off" - those two threads were merged.

I think if I posted - hey, I am gonna be there in a few weeks and I want to know where to go to meet the upscale, well-heeled and educated white men; I don't want to go to clubs were there are white trash, crackers and rednecks - everyone would have just said - Dern, lady, you are TACKY and a snob!

Now if the original poster had put - I am an AA woman, moving here in a few weeks, and wondering - are there good places to hang out where I can meet some fine AA men? Putting it that way - no one would have thought a thing. There are a few clubs here, plus there is a meetup organization which is out of DC, I think - and they have really nice parties where people can meet and greet. I just can't remember the details- so if the poster is sincere - maybe someone can post some of those details for her.

You don't think asking for a really specific type of person isn't exclusionary by nature???? If I was single her request would eliminate me because of my skin color. I'd call that exclusionary.

You confused us w/ the other post, TJ. We thought you were just trolling, ok?

I hope someone will come on who can point you in the right direction. It was the way you asked that other question that caused the ruckus.

Your reference to the K organization was inappropriate and unnecessary.
