    Forgive me family if I’m duplicating a topic, but I was away from home for a bit and may have missed it. Anyhooo…

    Does anyone in the community have or had white people as friends?

    The question should be; Is it possible for black people to have white friends? I have issues with this question. Obviously the terminology of friend is at question here. I don't think that there is enough spiritual, historical, cultural, linguistic, social or genetic sameness for any white person to be qualified for the definition of "FRIEND". Sure, there are plenty of black people I do not agree with on many levels but there are levels of our existence that go beyond my being able to agree with them that is beyond my control that we share and have in common just because of who we are.

    Based upon these realities and facts, it becomes impossible for me to ever label any white person as "being my friend". We simply have nothing at all in common that we share or can relate to outside of the idea that we are two living beings. The idea that a black person and white person may like the same food, the same clothes, the same movies, the same music does not qualify them as being my friend...for it is deeper than the things I just mentioned.

    If by "friend" you mean someone you have known for an extended period of time and whom you enjoy a chat with on a regular basis. Yes, I have had some good whight friends as well as mexican, chines, japanees, black, kenyen, and russan.I have also met a few nice canadians, texans, and korians. Some of them have heavy accents including some of the wight friends who have country accents, but if that is the only issue standing between our friendship then I can work through it.

    According to the definition of someone in which of whom I share the same situations and circumstances with, and come together with to deal with such, I don't have Any friends! (not even Black-Afrikan)

    I have devils, my bad, white people that I hang with in certain venues. Am I gonna call them just to jaw jack? No! Will I buy them a drink? Yes? Will I go to their homes for whatever? Depends on the whatever. Will I trust them to get me out of jail? Never. So I guess the question is what exactly do you mean?

    No!!! Thats

    What white people are for. To be friends with their own. thats one of our problems. We always wanna "Welcome" them. let them in, so they can snoop. etc... Some Afrikans actually have intimacy with them!!:11600::puke::puke::puke: No, No and Hail NO!!!!!!!!
