Re: E-Harmony Against Interracial Relationships
- Thank you for sharing this!
Not that I am looking to use any dating sites being married
and pregnant, but it is good to get this kind of info out.
And you know, I have always suspected this about e-harmony.
One only has to look at the "success story" couples in the
commercials--they look like brother and sister most of the time!
The e-harmony philosophy seems to be that the more identical
two people are the more likely they are to get along!

A word of caution to our group members ...
In addition to being careful when using an
online dating service in general, it may be
best to be extremely careful of the online
dating service known as 'e-Harmony'.
Many people have been reporting that they tried the
'e-Harmony', service, hated it, found no matches ----
then later discovered that the owner of 'e-Harmony'
is openly very, very, very, very much against interracial
dating relationships and marriages; openly disapproves
of even the mere the existence of any and all multiracial
people; and the company tends to only hire people
whose beliefs are in line with that of the owner's.
The owner of 'e-Harmony' has been said to have also
previously been closely associated with organizations
and people that have been noted as being 'hate groups'
and is good friends with various ultra-conservative
organizations that despise various groups-of-color
and have open contempt for interracial relationships
and those of us who are the offspring of such unions
(particularly if any black bloodlines are found therein).
Here are comments people have
made about 'e-Harmony' service ...
Alan S. says:
eHarmony? -- Oh you meah eRacism?
Sorry to bring back the racism issue, but I have to say
that eHarmony is the only online dating service I know
that let's you pick ... what race you *don't* want to date
neil "a thotep" c. says:
On the subject of racism, it bugs me that I've never
seen a multi-racial couple on their commercials.
"Daniel Lynem [send email]
When e harmony first started I read in
some of the material on the site at the time,
and this came from Neil Clark himself,
that mixing of races in marriage should not
be done and I heard him say the same thing
when I heard him speak at a church
It was in a section that talked about what
to be careful of when finding a mate.
He gave a number of reasons why he didn't think
that interracial marriages where a good thing "
" when it comes to sites like, e-harmony
Have you also noticed, every single couple
they have ever featured is of the same race?
A subtle or not subtle message here?"
ALSO -- HERE IS A DIRECT QUOTE FROM
THE OWNER OF E-HARMONY HIMSELF
ON HIS VIEW OF INTERRACIAL UNIONS
"Interracial Marriages: Do They Work?
By Dr. Neil Clark Warren (Owner of `e-Harmony')
"My concern about interracial marriages is
really part of a larger concern about
my philosophy about what creates highly
compatible, long-term relationships
My practical research with couples
has indicated that when two people are
highly similar, they have an easier time
[S]ignificant dissimilarities will
almost always be problematic.
[I]nterracial relationships ... will
require an enormous amount of
hard work to manage, and this may
well subtract from the energy
needed to keep a marriage thriving."
