This paper explores modern cross-ethnic friendship patterns in British multi-ethnic secondary schools in greater London, and the impact of ethnic group and ethnic diversity on cross-ethnic amity selection and quality. Surprising results reveal multiple and high quality cross-ethnic amity, outnumbering same-ethnic amity for all ethnic groups.
