White people are products of their own whitewashed, sanitized environment. Black people have been systematically excluded from white neighborhoods. Black stories rarely surface in popular culture. The history of race in high school textbooks has been boiled down to a handful of bedtime stories about Jackie Robinson and Rosa Parks. Try to tap into the average white person's feelings on race and you won't necessarily find feelings of hate and antipathy. You just won't find much of anything, no fully formed or well-considered thoughts about race of any kind. There's nothing really there. Even white people who want black friends don't know where to start.

Why isn’t hatred of white people considered racist?
Why aren’t studies on the evils of white people considered racist?
Why are white people writing articles about how rotten white people are?
Gee, I can think of several reasons why many whites have few black friends and none of them have anything to do with racism from whites or segregation on the part of whites.
I used to have black friends.
I dated a black girl for 7 years when I was much younger.
I don’t have any black friends now, and it is going to stay that way.
Things have changed.
To the headline: I do and I have black family members.
Will read the story to see what they are talking about.
yawn... why don’t blacks have white friends? The current trend of faux nostalgia of things that happened in the past do not reflect current reality.
Cuz in many cases they say the “F word” three times in each sentence?
I grew up in the proverbial melting pot.
Simply everyone has been in my home at some point.
There is only one group that refuses to accept an invite or extend one.
That has been my honest to God experience.
They do, when it serves a purpose, and even then it is a oneway street.
We only joke around at work.
There is no way to answer this without being labeled racist.
Then again, today’s definition of racism is anyone that disagrees with the left. So I will give one possible answer.
At around 13 percent of the population, and with most blacks living in big cities, could it be there are not enough blacks for each of us to have a “black” best friend.
Thanks to Obama, whites and blacks now look at each other through a different prism.
Obama’s mama had black friends.
Who the hell wakes up in the morning and decides "I want to make friends with some black people today?"
Would it be racist to think that black people who want white friends don't know where to start either?
I have a few friends who happen to be black. We are friends because we enjoy each others company and have a lot in common - the same reason I am friends with some white people also.

Yup, the ‘Clinton News Network’ is doing what it can to help Hilly shed the blood of her setting up the Benghazi Massacre.
I've had some good friendships with black people simply because they were where I was at the same point in life. I don't remember every waking up saying, "Gee, I want a black friend."
I can't imagine anyone thinking like that ...except maybe a liberal. You know, the same kind of folks who wake up and say, "I think we should adopt a black baby."
At one time in my life I had several Blackafricamericanperzonsofcolor “friends”. Then one day it dawned on me that those people were the only people I knew where I had to be very careful of ever word, every phrase or even inflictions. So I quit calling or going around them. Now days, if they show up at a gathering or get together, I just leave.
I do have several Latino and Native American friends since they are normal folks.
