I've Been Deserted :[

Ok, here's the dealio. So I just got a boyfriend, right? And I really like him, right? But ok...the election was about 2 weeks ago. And one of my best friends is Muslim.

Long story short, he made some comments about Obama and she got offended and now 2 WEEKS LATER it's my fault and I'm supposed to talk to him about it, even though 2 FUCKIN' WEEKS ago she didn't mention anything. Oh, and it's also my fault that he said these things. I AM NOT THE SAME AS MY BOYFRIEND. Alex does not equal Courtney. Alex is DATING Courtney. Oh, yeah, she should understand that because all her life she's been classified as a terrorist because she is Muslim. But she didn't even take the time to see my side of the story, and I took the time to see where she was coming from.

And now my OTHER best friend sided with her saying "i don't have a legit reason to be mad". So now I have no best friends.

as I side note:: I am not racist, and I do not appreciate racism in any kind or form whatsoever. Just to let you know.

And I was on the brink of tears all day :.

Thanks for reading.

Geez. That sucks. I can't offer any advice besides maybe get a more mature and understanding group of friends.

Maybe you should tell them how you feel. Maybe you should calmly tell them that it bothers you that something like that would stand in the way or your friendship with them. Girls should never let a boy get in the middle of their friendship. They should be a little more supportive...and maybe you should tell your friend that got so upset about it in the first place to tell him how she feels. She will eventually have to learn how to stand up for herself, because everyone has to stand up for themselves in their lifetime. Maybe it's a good thing?

Try to talk to them, but if they don't understand or at least respect your point of view, they really aren't your friends.

p.s. I don't think I knew what a terroist was until I was 12 because of 9/11! I feel all enlightened now and understand why the U.S. is the way it is a bit more...anyways sorry...
