Brainchild of an African American woman in response to 75% of white folks do not have non-white friends.

Intentions are good but yea, not very politically correct.

“As a black person I deal with racism every day,” she said. “It’s a part of life. Nowadays I have become more fearful. I have never been afraid when it comes to race but now I am. And I don’t think I’m alone. I want to do my part to change things,” Moses told the Post.

The group specifically asks for white people who don’t have any nonwhite friends to attend.

Moses said that “many white people want to begin to cultivate relationships with black people but don’t know how to and this is an opportunity for them to feel comfortable.”

“The only way to change the divisiveness that’s going on is to be one-on-one with people. Policy won’t really change things, but forming relationships will.”

Since posting the event on Nov. 12, the response has been “phenomenal,” according to Moses. She told The Post that people from all over the country have called telling her how excited they are and that they want the event to come to other cities.



Yay or Nay to events like this?

I was just thinking, over here, as kids, we always have had friends of all races. Even being in a 75% Chinese country, it's impossible not to have minority race friends. Probably due to two things. Race quotas in where you stay, to make sure every area in my country is equally divided and occupied by all the different races, so they live in same areas together. And the school you go to, depends on where you stay, so every school is naturally very racially diverse. My best girlfriend in primary school was Malay. My best girlfriend in secondary school is Indian. And my work place has like every single major race of our region. It's impossible not to be friends and lunch together.

Can't imagine that 75% of whites don't have like 1, even 1 minority friend? I mean how about lunch buddies at work?

Tickets are $15 and proceeds will benefit the Young Urban Mediamakers. If all goes well, Moses hopes to make it a regular event in 2018 and hopes the “conversation on race continues.”



Wow! 15bux to meet black people. If white people are willing to pay for this shit! It's ridiculous!

They can meet loads of black people anywhere for free.

this is very probably an unlikely statistic greta, but in so much as there's a hint of truth to it, it could mostly be owe-able to simple demographics. in my area for instance, I think blacks only make up ~3-5% of the population.

the question of what constitutes a "friend" comes to mind too.

Maybe she should do a study on how many Black people have white friends ? The percentage would probably be about the same.

ROFL!!!

Sadly Greta this is true!
Interacting with those of another race, at work, or in passing, does not make you FRIENDS.
I totally believe this "study".

As an "old fat white man" (which I'm not but, as so many like to throw around as an epithet) I have become more fearful, also. Groups like antifa and BLM have made it very clear that I am a target for derision, if not full-out violence.

The group specifically asks for white people who don’t have any nonwhite friends to attend.

How about black people that don't have any white friends, either?

Moses said that “many white people want to begin to cultivate relationships with black people but don’t know how to and this is an opportunity for them to feel comfortable.”

Funny, when I wake up, I don't think: "I need to cultivate relationships with black people!"

I will admit, at certain times in my life, to thinking along the lines of: "I've got too many negative people in my life, I need to cultivate relationships with good people!" (I'll get to an anecdote about that, subsequently)

Yea or nae? Well, because of that last little bit, at the end, I'd have to say: "I'm not sure." I have become very careful with whom I spend my money. I have never heard of these "Young Urban Mediamakers" so, I would have to do a little bit of research, first.

Without the monetary consideration, and the inference that it is a necessity in my life, I'd probably be in, but there are other ways I interact with people.

I think I've mentioned, here, a couple of times that my Friday (and some Wednesday) nights are spent at a pool hall with people who are invited to show up, pay no money, and just fellowship with like-minded people. I am almost always the only "white" guy there (I'm not white, as I guess I will keep having to tell people for the rest of my life).

How did that happen? Well ...

When I first moved to Pennsyltucky, I lived in a neighborhood where alleys run behind the houses. My building was a "triple" (three family dwelling in one building, but separate, fenced-in yards).

My neighbors on one side were pill sellers and users and much younger so ... nothing in common, there.

On the other side, I met those neighbors the night we were moving in. A lady, just a couple of years younger than I, her daughter (about 22 or 23, at the time) and the daughter's infant-toddler son. They were drunk and wreaked of pot smoke (Later I was to find out they were also selling METH and crack Cocaine).

I was beginning to wonder about the neighborhood to which I'd moved. It seemed a lot like the one I'd left.

Anyway, the guy that lived behind me seemed like a friendly enough guy (he always had a smile on his face). I saw him pulling into his driveway on his bike, one day (His driveway/garage was in the back of his house) and commented on what a pretty machine it was. I introduced myself. We started chit-chatting.

Over the passage of time, I found out he was also a vet, he was old enough to be my (very) older brother, he was struggling to quit smoking cigarettes, he was in recovery.

We socialized a lot, since we were both "retired" and played a lot of chess and pool and grabbed a lot of lunches, together. On nice days, we also hung out at the town square together.

One night, as we were shooting pool, he told me he had a commitment to bring a recovery meeting to a rehabilitation unit that was very near by. He complained that these people had no evidence of how good life could be without using drugs or alcohol. It was a Friday night meeting so, I suggested he bring a bunch of people to play pool, after the meeting.

He said: "Michael, these people ain't got no money."

I said: "We do. Seriously? How much could it cost us? $30 each a week ... maximum ?"

And so was born the weekly pool game where I am almost always in the minority.

What's the point? Well, somewhere along the line, we stopped being neighbors and became friends, "bonded" by common interests. There was no color consideration on either of our parts. We treated each other as human beings and went from there.

I find the premise of this "come meet a black person" to be faulty and, therefore, insulting. I don't believe that there are that many people (75%) that are so ensconced in a "racial bubble" that they don't know people of other colors.

Remember: "78% of all statistics are made up, on the spot" (I wish I could remember to whom to attribute that, but I can't)

Back in the day, mid 80's. my phone crew was close to 60% white, 40% black. We were good friends at work. At the time I always thought it was more than that. I was wrong.. I had a big in ground pool at the time. I invited everyone on our crew to my house several times. Black and white. Only 2 brothers ever showed up out of maybe 25. I thought they were friends or they wouldn't have been invited to my home many times. They really didn't want to be friends with a white guy. I was never invited to one of their homes.

Seriously? In Lawrenceville, GA?

I wouldn't say nay, yet, I'm kind of wondering why an event such as this would be needed in a town where the demographic of the population is such that "meeting" a person of a different race is something a person would have to schedule on the calendar or pay a door fee over. We're not talking about places like where I grew up, where the town population is less than single digits for anybody who's ethnicity isn't white and we're only dealing with less than a thousand people.

I often wonder this sometimes, too. Not so much about race, though several threads in this section make me wonder otherwise when we start discussing the LGBT community. I'm always given pause when people say they don't know anyone who is gay, bi, or trans. Usually, to me, this is like a person putting a big neon sign over their head that says, a) they really aren't involved in their kink community, b) they aren't all that familiar with people they co-exist with at their job, school, or church, and c) they might want to ask themselves why their social circle isn't reflective of their zip code.

They did, the article says 75% of white folks has no non-white friends, and 65% of black people have no non-black friends.

It's funny where homosexuality is illegal in my country and already since a kid. Coming from a all female school, already as a kid, I met alot of lesbians and butches(presumingly potential transgender who wants to transition to male in the future). It starts from young.

And of course trips to Thailand. Land of transgenders.

But also, we meet transgenders working as sales girls over here in like cosmetics departmental stores.

I remember even as a very young kid, I saw gay men locked lips at airports crying and parting.

And when I go to a mix school, there are always teenage boys who are extraordinarily effeminate boys that you knew was gay, even the way they walk, they love to exaggeratedly sway their hips.

It was also kinda interesting that in an all girl's school, the lesbians are all openly lesbians. They don't seem to be judged for it. And they are pretty forward if they like you. And this was a time where being a lesbian, at least engaging in a "lesbianly" sexual act was illegal.

Our law just criminalise lesbian or gay sex. But it's not a crime to be lesbian or gay, so I guess they were comfortable being open. They can still hold hands and kiss.

Yea, can't imagine never meeting one. I feel like they are among us since I was a kid.

Well, I generally wouldn't invite someone to lunch with me unless I like them. So even if I don't hang out with them outside of work, but lunch with them and attend work events together with them at work. I consider them friends. And usually the main reason I wouldn't hang out with them outside of work is because of not having similar hobbies. Some have families to spend time with. Some pursue different hobbies from me, so my out of work time is spent with another group of people outside of work who share my hobbies and we enjoy it together. But I have always invited anybody I like to it.

The thing is, for those boys who did sway their hips and behaved very effeminate. It's like natural, I don't think they do it intentionally. Just like lesbians, there are very masculine gay folks who you can never tell is gay. And there are those that always has these exaggerated female movements and also the way they speak, that are clearly gay.

It's more than race. Our social circles are often made up of people similar to us in many regards, unless we purposefully create or throw ourselves into diverse groups.

Most of us look for friends that we have things in common with, that we can relate to, and that can relate to us. People that don't make us feel weird.

I think it is a wonderful idea... In fact this idea should be expanded... I think having bakers meet gays might be useful. But the idea is flawed in it's basic premise. Moses said the idea was to reduce divisiveness but the very people that would attend would not hold hostility to blacks to begin with. Although it would not serve that purpose there is the benefit of the possibility of new friends.

There's something to this, also.

I think it is human nature to be a bit uncomfortable around those that are different from us in some way. Sure, it's "base" and all, but I think it's there.

I've mentioned on these boards before about the dangers/ineffectiveness of social engineering. People can't be forced to think differently. Sure, the government can pass laws to make people behave differently, but that isn't really the same thing.

I've mentioned on these boards before about the dangers/ineffectiveness of social engineering. People can't be forced to think differently. Sure, the government can pass laws to make people behave differently, but that isn't really the same thing.


As long as the laws are just then they are valid and necessary. It may not change peoples minds but it will bring some justice. Otherwise no laws...minds are still not changed and justice is not served... With laws... minds are not changed but justice is served... Which way do you think is best?
