the site everyone points to as a shining example of "I'm not racist; one of my best friends is Black!"

usually to ridicule people who actually try to use this rhetoric, or just to laugh at the site itself (which is a parody. I think. Pretty sure.)

I don't know how anyone could think it was anything but satire... it's basically a list of everything people say about blacks that compares their appearance and behavior to white people. And they made a website called blackpeopleloveus.com.

Yeah that's all I saw when I went to it. Even if for a split second you thought it was real, with the overly "faking it" goofing off pictures, it's pretty much the same kind of satire as many online sites like the Onion. They even kind of "out" themselves, since in the comments section, it's not a message board, and they simply post some of the e-mails they get, with some more or less calling out people for not getting the joke. If this site was real, they wouldn't be the type to put all these comments up. =P

In fact, this site through satire may be meant to do some good. In the links section, it has a lot of informative links. Plus general poking fun of the stereotype of having a black friend that's all too common.
