Stuff White People Like

I came across this gem about a week ago on some "news" site, which only covered it because of the irony of the concept: "Stuff White People Like" (Irony, BTW is topic #50).

As a white person myself, I thought I'd take a read and found myself chuckling at a lot of posts. I have no idea what the race/gender/ethnicity of the author is but I thought that a lot of the topics made me think of some people I know.

After a while, I realized that the blog should more accurately be titled "Stuff Liberal White People Like". Maybe even "Stuff Upper-Middle-Income Liberal White People Like" or "Stuff People Who Are Typically Lampooned On 'South Park' Like". Check out some of the examples:

#3 Film Festivals
#6 Organic Food
#22 Having Two Last Names
#28 Not Having A TV
#44 Public Radio
#60 Toyota Prius
#62 Knowing What's Best For Poor People
#74 Oscar Parties
#91 San Francisco

Geez, if the typical "white person" stereotype skews Left, I'm might actually be a little offended.

I think the LMC referenced it a while back, too. A funny site, and reminds me of many, many people I know.

Wine's on the list, but not beer?
