According to a study by the Public Religion Research Institute, only one percent of an average white American's friends are blacks while 91 percent of them are whites.

However, black Americans have 83 percent blacks, 8 percent whites, two percent Latinos and zero Asians amongst their friends.

Despite the notions of 'post-racial' society, Americans have prominently segregated friend groups.

One of the statistics showed that 75 percent of white Americans are only friends with people from the same racial group, reported the Huffington Post.

The study also revealed that black Americans have ten times as many black friends as white friends.

Author Rob Smith interpreted the study saying that it reflected the privileges in America.
