The answer would depend on how close you are to your black friends, and how well you respect and value each others’ feelings. If you explain to your friends the nature of your unease with racial topics, perhaps this will not only help ease the tension for you, but create a greater understanding between all of you. Under these circumstances, you’ll probably find your comfort zone. However, if you’re not dealing with people with whom you can share this depth of feeling, it is perhaps best to avoid getting too close to racial discussions until you feel more comfortable.
