I am trying to be more inclusive.
Worryingly 70% of my friends are heteronormative and 60% are white.

No because a friendship group isn’t a quota where I have to find people of all different nationalities, it’s just a group of people I vibe well with. If they all happen to be white that’s absolutely fine just as if they all happen to be black or Asian or any kind of mix.

I don't think of the races of me and my friends when we hang out... the good things are probably the same if we weren't diverse.

You need to be less inclusive.
White people composed 87.2% of UK citizens in the 2011 census and, as of 2019, 93.7% of the population was heterosexual.

Of course not, I'm not a public facing organisation that has to justify itself, I can select associates based on merit and preference alone rather than some sort of creepy ham fisted affirmative action scheme.

The simple answer is No. As alluded to by a post above large swathes of the UK outside cities are almost entirely white and despite it being unfashionable, more than 90% of people are heterosexual.

I'm slightly alarmed that liberal indoctrination has reached a point where they think that diversity is something to aim for rather than just an outcome. Next one will be asking if they should sleep with an immigrant to have a diverse child.

Diversity is neither good or bad. It is simply the product of what should in theory be meritocracy and personal choice (though as I'm monocultural I'd lean marginally towards bad if pushed).

I do have a very diverse group of friends. It's not really something I think about though.
