You lived in Austria? Well, I guess you have perspectives that I couldn't possibly have from that alone.
Most of my friends at my university are Black, yes. But I have other friends of other races. Most of my friends in San Diego are Mexican or Asian or White. All my friends in Austria were White.

I really do not know what you're saying here.
How many blacks are in Austria? Not too many.

Anyway, whites are badgered by messages from media about how we don't ALLOW blacks into our communities and how we EXCLUDE them from our lives, but it seems like it is often the choice of blacks to separate themselves the majority of the time. You said you hang out with blacks MOST of the time. Which is fine, but it does affect perceptions. Because most blacks do this. We can all share anecdotes of this, wherever we live.
Well, if the white people where you live all think like you, it's really no wonder that black people chose to isolate themselves, now is it? No one wants to be around that if they can help it.
