The giant ad for WhereWhitePeopleMeet.com, between 5600 W. and 7200 S., is turning heads and leaving residents with many unanswered questions.
A FOX 13 viewer who wanted to remain anonymous voiced concerns about the dating service that, according to its website, has a main office in North Salt Lake.
Several Utahns spoke with FOX 13 News about their take on the billboard.
“I just don’t think it’s the way to teach our kids to love all when you see billboards like that," Kim Gilbert said.
Michelle Dessau said she thinks the billboard represents exclusionary views.
“I just feel we should be past that whole mindset of staying within our own race and segregation pretty much," Dessau said.
Well it IS Utah after all.
