“In most situations, white people are very comforted by seeing their own kind. “

Oh, snap! The Wife just turned me on to a brand new blog. It seems fairly popular, so you might have already peeped it…but in case you haven’t:

Stuff White People Like

All you get in the “ABOUT” section is this brief yet accurate description of SWPL:

This is a scientific approach to highlight and explain stuff white people like. They are pretty predictable.

I haven’t had a chance to read all 82 (at the time of this writing) entries, but the ones I have remind me of quite a few “white people” I’ve come across in my life….myself included. Oh, and for some reason, this blog really seems to rub people the wrong way…which is always a plus in my book.

Some of the topics covered are:

The Daily Show/Colbert Report
Barack Obama
Whole Foods and Grocery Co-ops
Vintage
Musical Comedy
Modern Furniture
Graduate School

So, if you’re white and you like stuff…check it out.*

*Even non white people might enjoy reading about stuff that white people like.

    Ha, I just found that blog the other day too. Pretty dead-on. And it cracks me up how many people got offended by it, and self-righteously demanded to know whether the blog owner is a white person him/herself.
