    Okkay...so how do you feel about friends with benefits?

    What I think is you're gleefully derailing your own thread.

    It's either that or

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I have many friends that I consider to be good friends that are from another race as me. I probably have more Egyptian and Middle Eastern friends than I do friends from other races/cultures. I enjoy spending time with them, and their race had no impact on me choosing to befriend them or to not befriend them.

    It's obvious that you derailed it. I'll stop responding to you as to not further derail it.

    I just hang out with cool people, if your not a douche, I'll hang out with you. Race does not factor in the equation.

    One of the best part is the food gatherings. However I do have a Polish friend who cooks some nasty Polish dishes LOL.

    It seems everytime a story hits surrounding scandal, murder, theft, etc, and there are 2 or more races involved it ALWAYS turns into a race issue, and the real issue up for debate gets forgotten. I grew up on military bases around the world. I had hispanic friends, white firends, black friends, korean friends and the list goes on. If I ever felt uncomfortable around anyone it was due to their PERSONALITY not their race. I attend a multicultural church and my husband and I are different races. What I want to know is how common voluntary integration is? Maybe I just grew up fortunate.

    I have lots of casual friends or work buddies of widely varying races and whatnot.... black, white, hispanic, lesbian, Brit, agnostic, heck even a couple Democrats.

    I have a very small circle of CLOSE friends... most are caucasian, other than one half-hispanic chick. I don't know why but it just worked out that way.

    I don't have any Asian friends. Most Asians around here hang out together and don't speak very good english, though a fair number are 2nd and 3rd generation American citizens; I don't know how it ended up that way. I tend not to buddy around with someone I can't even have a conversation with because of the language barrier. They're mostly Laotian, Hmong and Viet (decendants of political refugees I think), along with a some Koreans, a few Chinese and a thin scatter of Japanese. Actually most of the Japanese speak perfect English, but there aren't many of them around and they're mostly educators or executives.

    You talk about reading comprehension, yet you fail to comprehend that this thread has TWO questions. The first question is what this thread is about "How common is real racial integration?" The second question is "Do you have friends of other races?"

    The main question has to be about a society: it is asking about commonness, about how frequently some trait shows up in a group. The second question is meant to supply the information for answering the main question. Narrow reading comprehension is not your friend.

    Re: How common is REAL racial integration?

    if we have stuff in common, we are going to hang out.

    regardless of race, religion, and nationality.

    I have Jewish, Christian, & Muslim friends.

    I have white, Asian, Hispanic, and black friends.

    though, I am of the post-Civil Rights era generation.
