-->"It's a nonsensical argument if you think about it, 'I'm not racist, I've got black friends.' You might as well argue 'I'm not a murderer, some of my best friends are alive!'

Note though that this trope depends on its use as a ''defense'' against an accusation. If Bob simply says 'I have many friend who are X', but is not using it as a defense then it may not be this trope. It may just be that he's saying so because another person says they've never seen many people of that group, so Bob saying he has friends in that group doesn't count as this.
