He said, ” I have black friends”

Seriously? So, what…does that make you “not” prejudiced? One of my very good friends said this to me years ago while we were discussing who would or would not marry. My answer to that was typical – someone who treated me right and respected me – doesn’t matter what color he is. My friend said he would never marry a black girl. When I told him that he was prejudiced, he said “but I have black friends”. Sheesh.
