Study: 3 of 4 Whites Have No Non-White Friends



http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...white-friends/

Let's consider the average American white American and the average American black American, and let's say, for simplicity's sake, that each of them have 100 friends. If you were to break down their respective friend networks by race, they would look something like this.

In a 100-friend scenario, the average white person has 91 white friends; one each of black, Latino, Asian, mixed race, and other races; and three friends of unknown race. The average black person, on the other hand, has 83 black friends, eight white friends, two Latino friends, zero Asian friends, three mixed race friends, one other race friend, and four friends of unknown race.

The average black person's friend network is 8 percent white, but the average white person's network is only 1 percent black. To put it another way: Blacks have ten times as many black friends as white friends. But white Americans have an astonishing 91 times as many white friends as black friends.

There are a number of factors driving these numbers. Simple population counts are one of them: there are more white people than black people in the U.S., so it makes sense that the average American is going to have more white friends than black friends.

Another factor is our tendency to seek out and associate with people who are similar to us in any number of ways - religiously, politically, economically and yes, racially too. The polite term for this phenomenon is "sorting," and it impacts everything from political polarization to income inequality to the racial differences in friend networks seen above.

To be fair, the numbers suggest there is plenty of racial self-selection in black Americans' friend networks too. But focusing solely on black-white relations, there's a pretty big difference between having only one member of a given race in your friend network, and having eight of them.

In fact, PRRI's data show that a full 75 percent of whites have "entirely white social networks without any minority presence." The same holds true for slightly less than two thirds of black Americans.

If anyone has 91 friends they are just a friend whore or use the word friend loosely like this survey.

Re: Study: 3 of 4 Whites Have No Non-White Friends

I don't believe you can have 100 friends. Maybe you can have 100 acquaintances, but even then I'd say 50 is about the limit. Other people you've just seen or know of because of someone else. I suppose if you live in a tiny town, you might "know" well 50 people. Maybe.

What I wonder, though, is how you have 3 friends of unknown races? Is that possible?

wtf at the first two responses


this is old news, but essentially this is extrapolating the data for one person as if an individual had 100 friends

"As if"-friends aren't real life friends How is that relevant to anything?

Re: Study: 3 of 4 Whites Have No Non-White Friends

The "study" is BS for so many reasons. Many of those reasons can be summed in the unbelievably stupid concept of an "average person". Averages can be applied to many things but not to people in this way.

The US does love it's race stuff though. I doubt that on any other subject the WP would publish siuch a crap "study."

Re: Study: 3 of 4 Whites Have No Non-White Friends

"100" is just a way to frame the results. the study tried to make it easier by using whole numbers. alternatively think of it as 10 friends with 9 white and 0.1 black. but then people will crow that you can't have 0.1 friends
