I love how the black friend is always described by a defensive white person as a "best friend" or "one of my best friends." Because a regular friend isn't enough. I always want to ask "Oh, does she/he know?"

I once had a friend of a (former) friend go on the defense with such a claim and was like "O rly . . ." because I could not imagine a black person voluntarily spending enough time with this person to "best"it up without being paid. I mean PAID.

Turns out I was that "one of my best" black friend(?!) in question. I did not hesitate to break the bad news.

Moral of the story: Don't oversell it. And maybe check with your Qualifying Negro first.
