News Flash: What Does It Mean Today?October 21, 2014
Three quarters of whites don’t have any non-white friends
Data show that for most white Americans, none of their best friends are black.
Where’s the outrage on this? Americans pay lip service to tolerance and acceptance, yet many of us don’t have (many or any) friends of different racial backgrounds.
What do friends of different racial backgrounds provide to you?
- Cultural perspective
- Racial sensitivity
- Understanding of why stereotypes hurt
- Appreciation for traditions and history
- Someone to knock you upside the head when you make a racist comment or rash generalization
- Street cred
- A homie
So get with the times, America!
