It was a question and I'm a pretty honest guy. Though I know many black families who are all good people, there's just some bad apples in the bunch around here, and then it becomes "all of them" when in fact it's not.

Now, are you trying to instigate my post as instigating black bashing? You'll have a really difficult time trying to claim me as being racist in any way I promise you.
Some people will always find an excuse to use the racist label. It happens in every single one of these threads...which is why these types of threads are supposed to be against the rules.

I have international friends, but most are ones I've met online because I have not traveled that much (not nearly as much as I'd like to). Offhand, I'd say my closest "foreign" friends who are not from the internet are Norwegian & Indian (now American citizens though). Being so close to Mexico, I know quite a few Mexicans too, but they hardly seem foreign (neither do Canadians ).

I have friends of many ethnicities. I definitely don't stick to a racial group when I socialize. My friends don't either, because we all share a similar mentality about these things, and as a result we're a mixed bunch racially/ethnically.

No , I spend about 99.9 % of my time being the only "diverse " person in the group. I really don't make an effort to diversify my social life anymore. I have more political diversity among my close friends.

I'm FOB and married to a US whitey, so our friends are automatically diversified. On any outing, I could be the only non-white in the group or vice versa.

To further clarify; I have dated several White and Black Americans, and two Asian Americans (Japanese and Chinese). I think As-A are fine but they are a bit on the sensitive side. Just my opinion.

I have friends of several races but overall mainly white. I think it's only natural to be friends with those similar to you and around you. If I live ina white area, work a white collar job most likely the people I come into contact with are going to be white you know.

My roomate is black though, I'm not racist...seriously I'mnot.

Let's play a game, everyone say 2 races your sexually attracted to.

White & Latina
Human and Atlantan.
