"Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity".
What's stupid is making an assumption about something you can't possibly know without asking, as the OP's "friend" did. In my opinion it was also stupid to risk offending a "friend" by phrasing what should have been a question as a statement instead, which was racially charged and insensitive at the very least, and down right rude and offensive at worst.

Some friend.
