I have a best friend-like, a real best friend. We can talk about anything under the sun, and we know that we won't judge eachother or offend eachother. Sometimes, when I talk about struggles that I'm going through or problems that I'm having, it feels like she knows me better than I know myself. This girl is smart, supportive, funny, independent, and strong. It doesn't even really occur to me that she is Hispanic and I'm white, because we are such good friends. She doesn't get offended by jokes about her race, and she takes comments and rudeness with grace and dignity. I really look up to her.

The majority of my 'heroes' are non-whites, and I'm saying this as a white anglo-saxon (former) protestant whose family predates the revolution. Many of the most influential people in my life were non-white; Malcom X, Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, the Prophet of Islaam Muhammad bin 'Abdullaah, my teacher Dr. Aboo Bara' Haatim al-Hajj 'Alee, Bruce Lee, Jet Li.
