    Are people missing the OP's point this hard on purpose?

    I don't understand why people are so against op wanting a friend of his own race??? It's not like he said he ONLY wanted black friends?

    You guys need to chill, I think it says more about you than OP, I don't understand why you're all so defensive. Christ.

    Tbh I don't get why people think that I only want friends of the same culture as me. Thank you for being one of the few who ACTUALLY understand what I'm talking about

    I agree with op, I'm sick and tired of having to talk to non-whites, I need all my friends to be aryan white supremacists, just like myself. Only other aryans will understand things such as the white genocide and the Jewish question.
    Tell me you're joking

    The amount of stupidity thrown on this thread by deluded first world, self-centeredpeople is astonishing. Where the hell are their parents to reign their nonsense behaviour in? Seriously moaning about how you need another person of your colour so you can sit around and talk about hair. I’ve never known something as shallow and petty to look for when answering a question about friends. With the world at your fingertips, it must be impossible to download apps and find people of similar culture. It must be so hard getting off your butt and joining city/local groups, or an online one, where you can talk about colour until your heart desires. I suppose a quick Google search is beyond their capabilities.
    This whittling everything down to a colour, an ethnicity/culture etc., is absolutely abhorrent. I’m not going to reveal my ethnicity, age or gender because I don’t play by those cards. I guess I should really moan about how none of my friends do or understand my hobby, which is a pretty lonesome one (creative writing being one). I suppose I should actively go out my way to find those with similar interests, or similar physical attributes, just so I can feed nwot fweel so lnonly and eyesolated in fis big big wrld.



    I suggest looking for deeper qualities in friends rather than their skin colour. You may not need friends for diversity (breadth) but perhaps friends with depth? Also, there are many groups online and in towns that make it easier than ever to find people of similar interests/problems. Regardless of colour, when you find someone with an open mind, someone you can connect with - none of this squad goal business where I feel it forces quantity over quality down our necks - then you really couldn't care less if they were called Jimbo from the Fartway Galaxy with green skin and blue freckles. I can't see there being any issues that a black westernised man has that a white westernized man can't relate to. Maybe you mean religion-wise, or culture? In that case, that makes a whole lot more sense, and those things are not defined by a certain colour
    wonder how quick it took you to gloss over the point of the post and insert what you think people mean. Of course hair isn't the only thing I want to talk about :/ I'm disagreeing when you say there aren't issues that black men and white men can't relate to. Trust me. There are.

    Ah, I see. The Snowflake generation argument consists of trust, not facts, logic or actual points. You bleat on about how people are missing your point, and yet you're the very cause of it. Explain it. Perhaps even consider that other people may have a point too. That there are other opinions and perspectives. You cannot gloss over the very point I'm making about colour. Reread your first post. That's the information you gave - that's the information we respond to.
