That sentence, "A lot of my friends are black," was, at one time, used by people to explain why they couldn't be racist...often preceeding or proceeding a racist statement. Basically, it was used a an excuse. I think the statement (and Sam's reaction to it) has lost the meaning over time and if you didn't grow up in the 60's or 70's, it probably seems like a perfectly innocent thing to say.
