Stuff White People Like March 14, 2008

 As I was getting on to my blog this morning one of wordpress’s top blogs caught my attention.  It is entitled, “Stuff White People Like.” 

To this white guy, it is absolutely hilarious.  I feel ridiculous saying this, but I could literally be the person he is writing about in virtually every post I have read.  It is incredible.  If it is not me, then there are a host of my white friends who exemplify his comments.  Hilarious.  Put it on your regular reading list.  Here are a couple of great quotes from the site:

Speaking of the white people love of t-shirts…

“The most prized t-shirt category is vintage. As shown earlier, white people need authenticity like they need oxygen and to have an original vintage t-shirt from the 1970s or 1980s is a very powerful social status symbol. The ideal shirt will have a funny logo, a year attached to it, and will be as thin as rice paper. In the event that two white people have shirts that meet this criteria, the superior ranking is given to the person who paid the least for the shirt. Acquiring a shirt at a vintage clothing store is seen as less respectable than sorting through racks at the Goodwill.”

 Speaking about high school…

“The most time and cost efficient way of gaining a white person’s trust and friendship is to talk to them about their time in high school.

Virtually every white person you meet was a nerd in a high school-it it is how they were able to get into a good arts program and law school. As such, their memories of high school are painful, but not tragic since they were able to eventually find success in the real world. Exploiting this information is your one way to ticket into the heart of a white person.”

    If you’ve had a blog for any period of time then you know that by far one of the most difficult aspects
    is to get, and maintain, a high level of traffic. Mistakes will diminish your authority and affect your reputation.

  2. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
    your posts? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
    this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Excellent blog!
