Some of my best friends are...

It is common (especially amongst outsiders to various minority groups) to defend one's predjudices by claiming friendship with the group in question. Typical endings to the term "Some of my best friends are..." include:

"Some of my best friends are heterosexuals, but I respect their diversity" - Oscar Wilde[edit]

Politically correct, yes, and has obtained a deep meaning, as heterosexuals are rapidly becoming a minority.

As the phrase "Some of my best friends are..." has become a cliché signifying token politically-correct tolerance rather than acceptance, the same wording but with a majority group's name makes light of this.

Nonetheless, the city of San Francisco is considering importing one token heterosexual to serve as an unofficial mascot.
