So we are now about to be told that our circle of friends must include quotas of blacks, asians, hispanics and presumably gays and transexuals.

At age nine I lived in a sparsely populated English agrarian county. The village my parents lived in had no families of any of the dark skinned races and the local school, in a village about a mile and a half away, had none either.

As I grew up and my social activities widened in scope, I began to meet people of the dark skinned races, most were friendly but due to things not connected with skin colour, closer friendships did not develop. However a few responded to a few polite words whith plain hostility, making it plain they wanted their arses kissed.

I've only ever kissed one black arse either literally or metaphorically, it belonged to a Barbadian woman I was involved with at the time.

Many whites in Britain have similar experiences of openly hostile responses to polite approaches.

Most people on both side behave towards each other in perfectly resaonable ways we do not become bosom buddies with everybody we meet in a casual encounter.

As for imposing quotas on our friendships, it is totally unreasonable to do that without taking into consideration the proportions of the total population each ethnicity contributes.
