I don't have non-white friends

I think it's weird that I don't have any friends with Asian or African roots!

Really? Luxembourg is your neighbour country, right? It's the most multiculturism in the world.

This is easy to fix. Just grab a box of crayon and colour away your nearest friend.

This reminds me of someone I know. She 'collects' friends and has a mental list:
Gay - tick,
Lesbian - tick,
Inuit - tick
Black-disabled-lesbian-single-mother-alien-abductee - not yet damn.

Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.

hmm... I have gay friends and lesbian friends, but not the others... then again, I don't have any Aboriginal friends - but there are no Aboriginals living near me, and none went to my school.

Bram, I think it depends on where you live and who you go to school with! (Or if you play sport with different people).

cariosity, bram_born84 is from europe. they still use the term "colored", even in english-speaking countries like england, scotland and ireland

bran_born84, you're not the only one and as inkyfan said, it all depends on where you live. it doesn't make you any more or less of a person whether you have friends of color or not. it's all circumstantial.

we use it, but i cant say its used often in the UK...and since we never had things which were labelled "coloured" and "white" i guess it doesnt hold the same sort of meaning for us....

Luxembourg hosts many people from all over Europe because it's on of the three capitals of the EU. The country hardly has any people of non-European descent.

And I don't think it's weird you don't have any non-European friends since you're living in a small town in West-Flanders.

well, it was obvious from the spelling of colored that so and so was from Europe. but not everyone who posts on this board is from Europe and the poster should have known that. that term is offensive to me.

For instance, what if I posted that I didn't have any 'queer' friends, I'm sure someone would have been offended. It's just common courtesy, thanks.
