Are U White Enough?

While hanging out with a friend today, I was introduced to the little book called Stuff White People Like. This book takes a satirical look at yuppie white folks. And I just couldn’t stop laughing.

Here’s a quick look at some things white people like (or at least non-rednecks):

  • The idea of soccer
  • Vintage anything
  • Bottles of water
  • Difficult breakups
  • Whole Foods and grocery Co-ops
  • Public radio
  • Apple products
  • Vegetarianism
  • Coffee
  • Standing still at concerts
  • Threatening to movie to Canada
  • New Balance Shoes
  • Pretending to be a Canadian when traveling abroad
  • Nintendo Wii (especially Wii FIT)
  • Public transportation that is not a bus
  • Conspiracies

The author (Christian Lander) offers some hilarious explanations for his list. The book is worth buying just for his charts and descriptions of how whites think about things from where to live to dealing with kids.

Full disclosure: I have no financial interest in this book although I am mostly white with a tad of conservative redneck thrown in for good measure.
