The same thing happened to me :( Like even my mom had a problem with me having a non-POC as a bff. We have been friends for over 10 yrs and have stood the test of time.
I feel as though its an assumption that we have to be best friends with POC just because of skin color. I’m friends with people I have something in common with and I look further than skin color. I have read other black people confessions and hear “I could never be friends with a non-POC… because of this and that” and that is fine, I don’t care but don’t call me names because I choose a person who has stuck with me through thick and thin.
