    Friendship Is Blind

    The friends we have are an extension of who we are in life. Much like the eccentricities that embodies our unique souls, so are our precious friends.  Many of us are lucky enough to have many friends that; when combined, exudes a rainbow circle!  To judge a friend or potential...

    Unless they are red with anger,

    green with envy, or blue with cold, or something like that. Then I will certainly care.

    I think it is pretty sad

    when we cling to old stereotypes and judge people by race/color. The fear of someone different than us is petty, weak, and unhealthy. And a lot of times that is what the hate or judgement is based on, fear. Bigots and racists are really just scared little ********, or at the...

    Skin color shouldn't matter.

    The only important color from a human is their aura.

    It Doesn'T Matter

    I always remember being colorblind when it came to choosing my friends. It truly doesn't matter what color your friends are as long as they are true friends. There for you no matter what. My two closest friends are white and Indian, judge the personality not the looks!

    The more colorful we can be the more we can enjoy each other's company. I enjoy all nationalities, genders, races and any other differences we have.

    I don't see you differently

    because you are a certain race. If your Mexican, cool. If you're from the Middle East, that's fine. As long as you have good morals, you can be my friend. If not, probably just stay acquaintances. I only surround myself with people who make me a better person.

    Better Things To Worry About.

    What color your friends are doesn't matter. I don't see why people base their friendships off of color. It should be character. I guess I'm one of the growing number of people that finally see this. I just hope that in time this continues to be the trend. We have more things to...

    There is a line in the movie "Free Enterprise"

    (a must see for Star Trek fans, by the way) that features Phil LaMarr's character sarcastically asking one of the leads, "Where are you other 'friends of color'?" My earliest school years were in a private school where the student population, while mostly white, was diverse...

    Black, white, green, yellow,

    purple, or rainbow, it's not the color of the skin but the content of the character that I judge. There is good in every race, and there is bad in every race. Don't like it? I don't care.

    You don't have to be white.

    I'm not technically white, myself. I'm Italian, so I'm Olive skinned. You can be any color, I don't mind. Color/race/religion/sexuality doesn't make a difference to me about who you are.
