I don't think friendship has such barrier call different race and culture. We may become friends if we can understand and respect each others. Nothing will work out if we didn't do that, even if he/she from the same race or culture as us.

I appreciate your suggestions very much,it is really that no matter where he/she comes from,if we can understand and respect each others well,we can deal with the relationships well.Understanding is the most important.

I believe that this kind of relationship is possible to last. One thing that they should learn is to appreciate each others culture. They should not think that one culture is superior to others. The difference between people bond them more. I guess. May I cite that opposite attracts. Besides, this might fascinate each other. The deeper they learn from each other, the stronger the bonds. Culture always teach something to us and I guess this challenge of being friend with someone from a very different culture may give us the answers to the questions about life that we search. I refer the the perspectives which may give insight from afar.

i believe that it is possible to make lasting friendships with people from other culture as long as both of you are very open and you try to understand each others differences. anything is possible when it comes friendship as long as you exert effort to maintain your relationship with your friends.

Yes ofcourse you can. See any relationship depends how the feelings about each other, how much you care for each other. I don't think if your friend is from different culture, but you know each other very well and you are comfartable sharing your feelings with each other, it does not matter at all. But one thing is for sure that you should not only thing that your friend should do this thing and that thing to be your best friend, but you should also do the same for them. And your friendship will be retained forever if both the friends think of each other.
