Black Friend Application

Black Friend Finder

A pal was glancing at my facebook photos and said, “wow, you really don’t have any black friends, do you?”

I got the feeling that he doubted the verisimilitude of my blog presence.

He was soundly corrected, but he did get me thinking. Maybe it is time I added another of color friend to join me around the wassail bowl this winter.

I was convinced this was the case this weekend when I shot a little short film that had a fairly large call for blacktors. It was actually kind of nice to reminisce about exactly which season of The Cosby Show had that weird-ass Calypso opening.

So, I need a new black friend. And thankfully, there’s an app for that.

An application that is.

Please pass this along to anyone you think might qualify. Or, if you’re of color, fill it out yourself. The winning friend and I will share Quiche recipes, swap Boxing Day memories and carpool to this year’s Dicken’s fair.

Bonus points goes to the referer of my new friend. If you refer a friend to me and s/he becomes the chosen one, you will receive a personalized anglo-tastic mix CD courtesy of yours truly!

The application is at the link below. Please email answers to oreo@theoreoexperience.com.

Good luck!

  1. Befriending someone because of their race, cultural background, or social standing is sad, pathetic, and just proof of insecurity and ignorance…

    however Becoming friends with someone you share common interest with or a shared focus to a common goal can be healthy and beneficial…

    I am sure you have Black friends already Aydrea, even if they don’t show up in your blog photos. You probably have way more than you even know. Friendship is not just going to parties and taking pics outside of quirky themed resturants. Friendship can simply be people who care about you (even if it’s caring through critism)

  2. Damn… this is funny.
