This post was deleted for the following reason: Man, this is kinda lame. Post apparently not a strong candidate for the list, though without demographics attached to the flags we can only speculatively blame whitey. -- cortex



 
Yawn.

How about lists of things that white people like? Do white people like those?

I keep waiting for a punch line. Or something offensive. Or at least edgy. I guess this white person likes waiting.

OK, I finally laughed:

"All white people are born with a singular mission in life in order to pass from regular whitehood into ultra-whitehood. Much like how Muslims have to visit Mecca, all white people must eventually renovate a house before they can be complete."

And in my new blog, "Things Brown People Like": Mecca!

"It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever."

(white people like Spinal Tap.)

Also: I work in the most inner of inner cities. Everyone rides bikes. (punchline: cos they can't afford cars!)

Yes, white people like all of these things, Mr. Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc.

Also, you know that not all white people are rich or yuppies, right?

I was expecting this to be funny and I was disappointed. Trying to construct a Whiteness based on the entries in the blog is pretty entertaining, though. I picture a Lincoln Park trixie trying to emulate the "hipsters" at her office.

Condescending, arrogant, stupid. Yeah, that about sums it up.

The rest are rednecks/white trash, right?

I accidentally favorited this when I wanted to flag it as racist/offensive.

Just so you know.

I too flagged it as racist. Partly because it's unfunny, partly because if this weren't about white people I'm not sure it'd have much of a chance, but mostly because it's just racist by definition.

This was fucking hilarious, and hit uncomfortably close to home!

It took me a while, but I finally found something funny -- some freeper who thinks this site is high comedy:

I have to admit, this site needs to be called
“stuff liberal hippies like” since it basically encompasses everything an anti-american, liberal, Berkeley loving, sandal and tie dye wearing, New York Time reading hippie would like. Other than that I absolutely love this site, these liberal creeps do display such contradictions with everything…I love the holding high diversity but sending their ids to private schools. These people needs to get to work and contribute to society.

I totally sent my id to private school!

I love both Manhattan Transfer and Wayne Brady and I don't care who knows it.

there is a special category of bicycles that appeal far more to white women, the European city bike (pictured). White women have a lot of fantasies about idealized lives, and one of them is living in Europe and riding around an old city on one of these bikes. They dream about waking up and riding to a little cafe, then visiting bakeries and cheese shops and finally riding home to prepare a fancy meal for their friends who will all eat under a canopy with white Christmas lights. This information can be used to help gain the trust/admiration of a white woman, especially if you can pull off a lie about how your mother told you about how she used to do all of these things when she was younger.

awesome!

the japan bit was also pretty funny.

and for what it's worth, i'm prejudiced against all races.

Coffee, marijuana and kitchen appliances. What can I say, the man has me nailed.

I am #63!

Damnit. My resolve broke as I went on.

#22 Having Two Last Names
#16 “Gifted” Children
#13 Tea

The earlier stuff seems funnier, more absurd. Especially with the tea one.
"If you find yourself in a situation with a white person, acceptable things to say include “I’m really into tea right now,” or “my favorite thing is to get a nice cup of tea and curl up in a chair with a good book.” But do not remind them about the role of colonialism in tea, it will make them feel sad."

I'm apparently not white.

I'm okay with that, considering what I'd have to be down with.

What?! I'm white and since I'm white that means I'm qualified to speak on behalf of all white people and I would like to say that a)this isn't offensive and b)it's all 100% true.

Indie Music:...blah blah blah..."white people hate anything that’s “mainstream” " blah blah blah.

At least it's a departure from the stupid stereotype that white people love anything that's mainstream. Anyway, flagged as racist.
