Well I would say yes. But thinking hard about it, it makes me wonder. Most are actually white.

I actually think you would have more luck thinking that people are more receptive to the opposite sex

Sadly all my friends are white, I had a few asian friends at school (in fact most my friends were asian at school). At university the white and asian people tend to have their own groups we all get on fine but we are not friends which other. Its just the way it turned out. There is also only two black people on my course out of about 85.

the uni is about 95% white, so its hard to have _lots_ of friends of a different race, but everyone gets along.

I had a mate Shahead he was always like that. He used to say thing like "I hate being a p*ki etc" some of the stuff he said cannot be repeated on here. I think he kind of did as a joke but it some times got a bit of hand. He used to get bullied all the time because of it.

I once rang my friend' s phone, someone answered, and I said "I demand to speak to my wife" in the most ludicrous accent I could muster. Little did I realise it was her mother who answered. I toned it down a little after that.

Dunno about you, but did you find you began to learn certain words of their langague? I know most of the insults in urdu, and when people don't know me use them thinking I don't understand, it's always fun to surprise them.

that is me!

"Jesus Christ, Indian, think about it yaahhhhh"

"wears long dress - indian"
"wears open toe sandals all the time - Indian"
"works 4 his dad, who's a carpenter - Indian"
"And, And, where else can u feed 5000 people with a few laoves of bread and fish? INDIA"

"Jesus....INDIAN!"

BTW: I have also found lots of asian people to take the mick etc have a laugh, even with white people with things u may see as "awkaward". Its just showing they arent bothered about the "u r white, i am not" thing. Its pretty common.

I often do same!

its nice to know you can talk freely without offending.
