    It's actually based on a Biblical Proverb:

    Solomon wrote:

    “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed."

    (Proverbs 13:20)

    Related to the saying: Birds of a feather flock together... means similar people go to the same places doing the same things.

    This is an old saying and I think it means that people are viewed to be what they are based on the kind of relationship they have with other people--friends, family or neighbors. Outsiders might judge you based on the kind of friends you have--if they see you with bad gangs, they assume you are also a bad guy. That's what I think.

    If I may quote "The fast and the furious: Tokyo drift"

    "Who you choose to be around you lets you know who you are"

    humans tend to keep those who they are comfortable with or enjoy being with, close to them. The things you look for are often visible on these people, and who you choose to keep near you shows a lot about who you are, specifically what you look for in a friend.

    It simply mean, that, the kind of personality you have will reflect on the kind of people you go or deal with.

    So it goes with the saying as well, people of the same feather flocks together.

    Which means that you are what you are by the company you keep. Friends influence you much more than your parents do because you are with them more often than you are with your parents. It is like "Birds of the same feather, flock together."

    People make choices about who to spend time with. Their choices reflect on their personality. Also, the kind of people who want to be friends with you is gonna depend on who you are.

    Simple...Trump claims he s not a racist...BUT David Duke really likes him and we all know that Duke was an ex grand wizard of the KKK

    So Trump is therefore a racist

    Well, I would say that the people (your friends) define you who are. The people you choose to be around shows the type of person you are.
