Why do trump supporters often say "I have a black friend" to argue that they're not racist?
- humptyLv 75 months agoBest answer
I despise Donald Trump and his lickspittles, but merely saying I have many black friends does not make me a racist. It is merely fact.
We should never ignore context. What is wrong is racist behaviour, which claiming "black friends" does not excuse. We should focus on the actions rather than the excuses. When someone mentions black (or Asian/First nations) friends I always ask if they have ever discussed racism with them.
Full disclosure: I have partly Asian, Tsimsian and black grandchildren. Like my white grandchildren they are also all Jewish. Is America a melting pot or a salad bowl?

Most of us don't.. The democrits want to say they to try to make someone think they are not racist when they play the race ticket constantly.. I Actually DO NOT HAVE ANY BLACK FRIENDS... NOT A ONE... I DO NOT WANT ANY... I am not racist... I Just do not want any and do not plan on going out and trying to hunt any up to prove I am not racist..

When it comes to discussion on race, every white person has a black friend.

Beats me. Maybe they do, but they can’t deny Trump does not respect minorities or women. He only respects people who kiss his butt and then some.

if we were racist why would we have a black friend? either way you can't tell who is racist and who isn't by how they act.

Because having Black friends would indicate an absence of racism .
This is a trick question , right ?
