    Question Do You Have Non-White Friends? Is it OK to Have Friends of Another Race?

    Which of the choices comes closest to your opinion? Please notice that this is a question about inter-racial friendship only, and not inter-racial romance or inter-racial marriage

    I don't see anything wrong with having nonwhite friends. I simply dislike people who fetishize it.
    The Phora

    "There are no principles; there are only events. There is no good and bad, there are only circumstances. The superior man espouses events and circumstances in order to guide them. If there were principles and fixed laws, nations would not change them as we change our shirts and a man can not be expected to be wiser than an entire nation."

    People throw the word "friend" around very loosely these days when what they really mean to say is an acquaintance. Let's be honest if you were arrested and sent to jail how many of these so-called "friends" would come bail you out? or attend your funeral? A true friend is someone you can trust, as you would a blood relative.

    I don't have a problem with acquaintances of other races or business partners to an extent; however, friendship is an entirely different matter.

    Off topic, sorry. Do you think you can trust so much your blood relatives?

    And second, I think for being a friend with somebody, you must have something in common. I don't know for example, preocupations, ideas, mentality, culture... you name it. Personally, it did not happen to me to have found a person of another race with which I could really be a friend and it is not about the fact he/she just had another race. That's why I think race is a second plan issue in a friendship. That's why I voted for "Yes, it's ok."

    WELL SAID!! and INDEED! I agree with you completely, Krampus, with the exception being that I personally would never go into any business ventures with non-Europids.

    I never had a non white friend.

    I can see them as coworkers and treat them in a fair and educated way but still they are just pro-forma relationships, as i don't really need them in my life as true friends.

    "E tutti si scandalizzano quando sentono dire: quel tale tipo di mammifero o di uccello ormai è sparito dalla faccia della terra, non lo vedremo più; è una grave perdita. Certo, si tratta di gravissime perdite.
    Ma non sarebbe forse più grave se sparisse una comunità umana?? --Bruno Salvadori

    Seven pictures of northern European males and seven pictures of northern African males were presented randomly via a computer screen to 82 Italian female undergraduates of the University of Padua, Italy.
    Each picture depicted a full frontal face with a neutral facial expression. Participants were asked to classify each picture as either northern Italian or southern Italian.
    On average, the seven pictures depicting northern Europeans were classified as northern Italians 81% of the time. The seven pictures depicting northern Africans were classified as southern Italians 83%
    of the time.

    I've had some non-European friends, one of them mixed Moroccan-Finn; and he was sick in the head unfortunately. The other a mixed Ukrainian-Mongol Altaic. I get better of with him than with many of my Swedish fellows..or Russian..but that's because he's got very well adapted to Swedish culture.

    One thing I, and even my mongol-Ukrainían friend, admit is that two different origins create personality problems, and empirically I find it true often.

    My answer is: Of course it's ok. But however, all my non-Euro friends I got now are 'comrades', paradoxally.

    I have a couple of Korean girlfriends at school and get on with them fine, probably because they had been in the US for about 8-9 years. Otherwise most Asian students are not famous for their language skills and it would have been hard to get on with them. I also know a guy from one of my classes who is a Norwegian / Asian (not sure which part, could be Thailand, I suppose) mix, I could probably call him an acquaintance. I have no problems with having friends from other races but I never had a Black friend as I detest the Black culture in the US. I wouldn't have anything in common with people who listen to hip hop, talk like pimps and tie that weird-ass thing to their heads. I think it depends more on the refinement and the education level of the person than on race, non-whites in the US *generally* are not high on the education scale, that is especially true for Blacks, Hispanics and some Chinese.
