here’s a blog linked on metafilter that made me chuckle many time- stuff white people like. the funny thing is- i don’t think the items listed are exclusively for white people, rather indie hipster, yuppies, and anybody who listens to npr could be on this list. it just so happens that that demographic is mostly white people. (though in the bay area, there are lots of other people included as well.)
what do white people like? they like driving the prius, owning lots of kitchen gadgets, sarah silverman, irony, owning as manyapple computer products as they can, eating at breakfast places, watching the daily show/colbert report (only if they have a tv), smoking marijuana, dancing at 80s nights, reading david sedaris, drinking wine or microbrews, working for non-profits, watching wes anderson films, shopping at farmers markets, and going to film festivals.
wow. i know so many people who fit that description, it’s scary.
of course, i shop at wholefoods, listen to public radio (though i hate ira glass and terry gross), listen to some indie music, own the arrested development dvds, am vegan, and drink too much coffee. i’m so white! anyhow… i’m going to go watch a netflix.
