One of my best friends is Japanese--we met in college, the other is Australian--we were roommates.  I've never had a problem with either of them, we are all pretty much carbon copies of each other, personality-wise.

Nope my first mind was to say all my friends are black

But, I have a Mexican friend of 16 yrs that I visit with when I go see my mama. Bring her daughter gifts, play a little guitar hero, get a little tipsy and invite to holidays.. but we're not bff's. I love her and am sure I'll be in touch with her for life though. I never really call her though.. but we're ok with that

I don't have any. In the city I live in you rarely see people of other races hanging out together. Usually they want the black female to fit into a certain stereotype:

A. be the token super friendly non threatening all American black girl

B. Or be the crazy loud mouth black girl that's always acting as their source of entertainment.

I dont fit into either of those categories so I'll pass.

Not a best friend but maybe a friend for life.  My old boss is someone I have a pretty close relationship with even though we haven't talked in years.  We talked about race many times but I usually end up annoyed because she's super sensitive about it and always wants to show me how anti-racist she is.  I used to read a lot on breaks and it would usually be a history book.  When I was reading a book about slavery she was damn near hysterical like I was going to read it and stop being her friend because white ppl had slaves and she feels really bad about it, and she's not like them and blah blahDead.   I looked at her and said "you're not in this book, calm down".   Me and my other black co-worker laughed at her for 10 minutes while she pulled herself together.  

I can't really deal with white ppl anymore though.  Something clicked in my brain about 6 years ago and I haven't been able to deal since then.

I don't have a bff from a different race but some of my close friends are Asian. They are all children of immigrants just like me, and I find that we can relate to certain things even though our culture is different. Plus I find my Asian friends to be funny and retarded so we are definitely compatible with eachother

this right here!!

one of my other friends from my old job is bangladeshi (I don't fuccs with indians though--rude, snobbish and racist) and we would spend our shifts talking about our cultures and how similar they were

..it would be like "oh yeah we do that too", it was nice plus she was funny as hellLOL

in a school full to the brim of whites.. i hung out with the black kids.. even the one i really didn't like , more than the whites. The Pakistani girls were nice. we had some Portuguese and Belarusian exchange students who were cool and my favorite teacher, other than kindergarten lol was from Australia.. couldn't stand my Scottish teacher. She put a bad taste in my mouth

Yup

Egyptian, Palestinian, German, Pakistani, and French/Thai.

I have always grown up in a diverse community. I know many people, but have a small circle of very close friends, and I love spending time with these ladies. Despite racial differences, there are many similarities in our personalities (educated, ambitious, caring, opinionated, honest, loyal) 

And I wish I could wear a video camera to record all the stares we get when we are out and about.
