I've lost contact from most friends from other ethnicities. We do have some people from Africa at church and sometimes have the African church there to do the worship from their church (one of the people from Africa is their music minister). I have had Hispanic friends in the past and one from Mexico, but mostly that was back when I was in the first two years of college and I haven't heard from any of them since then. Oh, there is also a friend at church that is from India. I had forgotten about him. He doesn't really do anything specifically Indian.

I lived in a much more diverse world in California. I miss our exchanges and now we only see each other on "Facebook".

Well, ethnic isn't really race but more about culture, I think. In that regard, I dunno for the most part. ?

In our family we have members who represent several groups. Among them are native American, African American, Mexican and pretty much all of Europe is there too. I also have friends from different cultures.

Only because people ask questions, I hate to say it but some states are really bad about excepting my family. When my daughter, myself, my brother and his family get together we represent 5 countries and they aren't all snowy white and often not excepted.

I don't concentrate on ethnicity for friends or of my friends.
It's common interests and beliefs that make up my friends.

Yes. In paraticular we had a Spanish exchange student living with us for a year in about 1960. Our whole family enjoyed learning from him - and having many disagreements too. Since then we (my DH and I) have been his guests for 3 weeks in Spain, and he and his family have been back to the USA 3 other times visiting.
Also, our son married a lady from the Philippines. We are happy for their union and learn so much of her country.
Other people too but these are most familiar with my knowledge of other countries.

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

Do you have friends from a different ethnic background from you? Are you familiar with their ethnic culture? Do you find it very different from yours?
