    Something to be proud of don't u think? To be able to say that u have close friends from different races? Even better if u can say u've had lovers of different races icon_smile.gif The closer we can reach the "Benetton Ideal" the better! Where one is not impeded by color or race but open to all.....

    Aristoshark saidActually, I do. I don't broadcast this because it sounds like the old racist "some of my best friends" blah blah blah, but among my closest chums are two African-American men, one Asian man and one Asian woman. No Native Americans, though. I guess I am a big old racist at that.icon_smile.gif


    I think we all should make it a point to make friends with someone from every country in the world, especially with the Internet it's possible to do so icon_smile.gif .....

    gta5iscomingin7days saidjust because you have friends of different "races" doesn't mean that you can't be racist. it doesn't prove anything. it's like a straight person claiming that he's NOT homophobic because he has a gay friend or a gay brother.


    I also said lovers from different races in the OP icon_smile.gif .....

    Good grief. Then we'd have to figure out what they all are and who is what. Seems rather pointless when hardly anyone is going to be from just one "race" pretty soon.

    I'd say that about half of the guys I've been seeing are of multi-ethnic backgrounds and of the rest, no two are the same.

    Given that I lived in LA for 30 years, that number would be pretty high too.

    If we all did this it'll bring the world all closer together. It doesn't hurt, it helps than hinders.....

    My best friend is Mexitalian, the rest of my friends are mixed Caucasion/Native American. Don't see why it matters.

    Pretty much.
    My roomate (who I consider my Best-friend) is Italian.
    My gay best-friends are Middle-eastern and East Indian.
    Most of my other friends/acquaintances are White, Asian or Latino

    Oh. . . I actually don't have any African-American friends. . .

    I have noticed many people on RJ are obsessed with race and have no idea what true racism is, so they throw the word around like it's candy.
