Cover of Some of My Friends Are...: The Daunting Challenges and Untapped Benefits of Cross-Racial Friendships

However, further polling reveals that most Americans tend to gravitate toward friendships within their own race. Psychologist Deborah L. Plummer examines how factors such as leisure, politics, humor, faith, social media, and education influence the nature and intensity of cross-racial friendships. --Publisher description.
