The Minority Friend

This is probably the cheapest, most intellectually insulting, and morally bankrupt ploy ever used by bigots. And politicians.

"My best friend in middle school was black, so I can't be racist."

"Of course I'm being fair, I once worked beside the cubicle of a gay."

"How dare you accuse me of such and such when my uncle's neighbour hired a dog walker who was a disabled, bisexual, Samoan, practicing Wiccan."

I just want to make this perfectly clear. This is not high school. You are not popular by association and you are not f***ing enlightened by proximity.

So stop brandishing your black friend like a crucifix to ward off accusations of racism, because no one is buying it.

And if they do, they probably just feel very sorry for your friend.
