Which is one of the most cliched racist things to say, like EVER!
When I hear this I want to:
1. Vomit on your shoes;
2. Tell you how ignorant and racist it is to say you have a black friend.
I usually do neither…but just in that one sentence you have shown me exactly the kind of white person you are, a racially clueless and ignorant one who will continue to do and say any number of ignorant, racist and clueless things. I usually seek to distance myself at this point.
