Don’t have black friends

Studies show that black people are more likely than white people to commit crimes (study), commit violent crimes (study), and to commit murder (study). So if you go making friends with black people, you’re just asking for trouble.

Wow, this was a very bold post. Um, reality check, that’s exactly the type of thinking that occurs in this country (and others). It’s called racism. In responding to this article, let’s stick to the more relevant topic of sexism.

lol nice post!
Brichola, read between the lines. He’s not even talking about racism. He’s talking ABOUT THE ARTICLE! He’s using “don’t be friends with black people” to show the ridiculousness of the article, which basically says “don’t marry career women.”

I think it’s brilliant. It’s wrong, but it’s funny. Yeah, obviously you have point and your “don’t be friends with black people” points out how we need to look at things individually, not as stereotypes. The same can be said for dealing with career women (whom I happen to love, but will never marry). However, your post is flawed in that friends are FAR different than marriage where you LIVE with the person, have LOTS OF MONEY tied up in the success or failure of that marriage, and basically agree to remain together forever. With friends, the ties are much thinner and can be severed without consequences almost anytime.

For the record, I know black people and have black friends. So there.

Ok, that’s a fair point, JohnJameson. Marriage is a much bigger deal than friendship. So I guess I should limit the relevant advice to this:

Don’t MARRY black people. It’s ok to be friends with them, even though you might end up being friends with a violent criminal. But marriage is such a major life commitment that anybody who chooses to marry a black person is just asking for trouble.
