I respect your response for not being defensive about it. If you live in an area that is largely segregated, then it is what it is. I prefer to join clubs and live in neighborhoods with a little bit of everybody. But I do not believe someone who does not have REAL friends of other races must be racist. I do believe those with a more diverse social circle tend to be more open-minded though.
