Someone recently sent me a link to a blog titled Stuff White People Like. I wasn’t surprised to see many of the things that friends and I have discussed before, so I had to add it to my blog roll. Some of my favorite posts and lines are:
Recycling: Recycling is a part of a larger theme of stuff white people like: saving the earth without having to do that much.
Expensive Sandwiches: These sandwiches generally start at $8.99. Remember that whenever a white person says they wants to go to a sandwich shop you are looking at at least a $15 outlay after tip and drink, $20 if the place has a good selection of microbrews.
Also note: white people will wait up to 40 minutes for a good sandwich.
Knowing What’s Best for Poor People: It is a poorly guarded secret that, deep down, white people believe if given money and education that all poor people would be EXACTLY like them. In fact, the only reason that poor people make the choices they do is because they have not been given the means to make the right choices and care about the right things.
Bicycles: And of course, it goes without saying that white people who ride bikes like to talk about how they are saving the earth. If you know a person who rides to work, you should take them aside and say “Hey, thanks. Sincerely, The Earth.” Then give a thumbs up. That white person will ride home on a cloud.
Stuff White People Like is definitely a blog worth viewing. And no, I don’t know the ethnicity of the person who writes for or created the blog.
