    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...

    "Hey you're going to the movies with me right?

    " my best friend asked. "Of course, it's the only fun thing I have planed for this weekend." I respond. "Well, ummmm, a lot of my black friends are going too..." he says shyly. I pause, laugh and say, "You're black you know, if I had a problem you wouldn't be my best friend."

    I hate that this is 2014 (soon to be 2015

    before you know it) and people still discriminate. I for one enjoy people, especially those outside my ethnicity. I like everyone, Australians, Indians, Japanese, Mexicans, etc. I could never limit myself to associating with only a few specific groups.

    I Want Your Friendship, I Don't Care What Color Your Skin Is.

    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...

    Comment On Racism

    The thing with racism is that its a slow thing to get rid of, it will never be gone completely but each generation has less of it which is a good thing of course. Here in Australia we have racism not so much against the colour of skin but rather towards a certain culture of...

    Truthfully

    I'm of white black and Indian descendant. However because both of my parents are mixed with black, I consider myself black. But because of my fair skin tone, people argue over me calling myself black--specifically my friends. I wish no one cared and just accepted the way things...

    I'm sorry but I care what race my friends are.

    Sue me. I don't want to hang with those purple *************. They're always mean to me. They think they're so cool because they're purple. Well guess what. I'm blue. I was an extra in both Avatar AND the Smurfs. They can never take that away from me. Ever.

    Why would I care what color my friends are.

    I am not like my father. I care about what is on the inside, not the outside. SO No, I don't care if you are black, white, pink, purple or blue, all I care about is you! Not the color of your skin!

    You know what I hate most about society today?

    Categorizing African Americans into lightskin, darkskin, brownskin. Like why??? We're still black. Skin color doesn't base your personality towards others. Saying lightskins are cocky, selfish, slow texters. That's a ******* stereotype. Well I guess lightskins are basically...

    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!

    I go by one thing with people I meet.

    Personality. Now don't get me wrong no one looks at someone else and doesn't see (like me for exAmple) white girl , glasses, shy? But I mean it doesn't matter the color of skin or back ground to me as long as that person treats others with respect and has a good personality,

    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...

    As I explained in previous posts,

    race doesn't matter to me. My friends are fairly diverse. Whether they are Caucasian, black, Hispanic/Latino, Indian American, or any other ethnicity, I simply have friends who happen to be of different ethnicities. What matters is whether or not a group of people share common...

    Unless they are red with anger,

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

    The colour of the skin does not define the

    person, their action, response, words do. I have met lovely people from all over the world who open their heart to me. Brazilian, Indian, Chinese,Taiwanese, British, Australian, Malaysian, African... Definitely the personality,attitude and open-mind counts.

    I really love my group of friends.

    We're all different races and it makes it so much more interesting. There's three Aussies, one Filipino, one Papua New Guinean, two Indians, and one South African (myself). What makes it even better is that we all get on well and connect with each other. :)

    I don't care what color my friends are

    but I wish I had a more diverse group. It's just so hard nowadays to meet people and make friends. I feel so much older than everyone. I also don't work anymore so when I was younger that's where I met the majority of my friends at. I miss being besties with my coworkers and...
