Several, but I don't make the distinction of them being black, my mates are just my mates.

I have 2 mates who are black, but where I live, there aren't too many black people. Plenty of Poles, Indians and Turkish though.

One of my few close friends is black. And the only one of them who is not white.

Quite sad, but they might be 50 black kids at our school maximum that are black, so no, sorry.

I don't, but that's because my town pretty much only has white people living here, no idea why

There were only 2 blacks in my high school that I can remember. Neither one of them were in any of my classes, so I never really got to know them. Plus one of them is a real weirdo, he actually posted a video to facebook of him putting his penis in random inanimate objects. He was probably stoned.

The college I just finished at had a butt load of them. Again, never had any of them in any of my classes since all my classes revolved around my x-ray course, and none of them were in that course.
TOMAHAWK!

We have this brasilian guy in my class who is one of the funniest guys I've ever known. He would always be quoting like these black jokes from Family Guy and other shows (Black Jesus: I rode into town on an ass. YO MAMA'S ASS!) and of course we'd laugh and joke around with him too.

Somewhere into the second semester I find out that his father is from Ghana, and he's half black. Since he looks very latino, I never guessed.

And after that me and my friends went out of our way to try and be more sensitive to his heritage and realised that it was one thing for him to make jokes like that, but it was not cool for us to do the same.



Lolnah, nothing has changed at all and I wouldn't have it any other way. The guy's great.

For some reason I read this as one of those uplifting videos you'd have to watch in elementary school either about how racism is bad, or recycling is amazing. All cheesy with the happy friendly ending.

Racist poll is racist.
Where're the options for I'm neither white nor black and I do/don't have friends who are black?

There are none of those options.

This is a black and white issue. Lolpun =]


Could have at least made a minority option just to let us feel included

Glad to know I can't be Asian/Hispanic/Middle Eastern/Not WHITE or Black and have black friends. ha.

In my immediate circle of friends not one is black...but growing up in a multicultural school district I have many black friends.

I wanna keep this poll simple and to the point to highlight that particular social division, there are only 10 options i have avalible so it would be difficult to make it a non black n white thing.

I've been up for nearly 24 hours on 5 hours sleep

Anyway, i don't see why the poll needs to represent everyone, it's a specific example about 1 particuar divide. I don't wanna skew it too much.


I'm putting a thumbs up as the picture for this post. And i'm giving it a title.

Not many black guys round my city. The majority of the black dudes are those whose parents or themselves have just come from Africa quite recently.
