Stuff White People Like


I can’t decide if I like Stuff White People Like. I like some of the things that this person (Christian Lander) says that white people like, and it can sometimes be funny, but sometimes the tone of the blog feels hateful. I know it’s supposed to be sort of Onion-esque satire, but I dunno. Sometimes it feels more mean than funny. But, you know, it’s okay because Christian Lander is a white guy. A white guy who lives in L.A. and has a fairly narrow experience of “whiteness” (I suspect of the hipster-bourgie variety, Mt. Washington, perhaps?).

And, based on what I saw in his wife’s flickr set, I’d like to propose entry #69: Taking pictures of expensive (often “ethnic”) food. And #70: “Ethnic” food. Nothing like a little culinary tourism to underscore your whiteness!

    sounds like christian has watched “The History of White People,” featuring the fabulous Martin Mull, one too many times.

    p.s. the name christian is devilish…every christian is a royal sh!t (ask my wife the elementary school teacher)…sorry to all the militant mommies out there who have given this name to their precious angel.
