I totally understand where you are coming from. I am called white, my dearest best friend is black and lives in Georgia. I went to stay with her and her husband for 2 weeks vacation. We ate at the restaurants together, shopped in stores together, never really thinking anything except we were together; however, many black people in this area seemed to find this very unusual and were looking at us many times over, when my friend realized what was going on, she grabbed me and hugged me for all she was worth, they people then just laughed and smiled, they were not used to seeing this, how sad, because I have the best friend anyone could ever have, and never once has our race been spoken of because we look at each other as sisters. If more people could get in touch with other people this way, what a wonderful world this would be. You don't have to marry, live together or whatever, just be friends. I live in Nevada and she lives in Georgia but I have never found a dearer friend than her and this is now ongoing for 45 years. I love you sister and God knows we were meant to be friends forever.
