I'm not racist, because I have black friends!

What do you think when someone makes a racial remark, but backs it up with the above statement? Do you think it is possible to be, in fact, a racist although you make get along with some people of that race?

  • In my experience, when ever someone prefaces anything by saying "I'm not a racist, BUT..." they're usually a racist.

  • That's a ridiculous comment, someone could be very racist and still have friends in whatever group they hate. Racist comments are NEVER ok, I don't care who you claim to have as friends. (It almost sounds like they maintain a few token friendships just so they can make racist comments.)

  • I think it's possible for many to have a biast against a race even if they have some friends that are of that race.

  • racism is not just when u are passing a comment regarding a black person. racism means: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    so it can be directed towards anyone. white, black, brown, chirstian , cathloic , hindu, muslim etc
