Full List of Stuff White People Like | Stuff White People Like

I think white people really like sailing. Or anything having to do with a regada.

Likewise with:
1) educational toys/software for kids
2) illegal immigrants who mow their lawns
3) “gourmet” fast-food (Islands, California Pizza Kitchen, BJ’s, etc.)
4) general Bohemian lifestyles which require no work
5) the musical “Rent”

you did a post of Whole Foods but overlooked Trader Joe’s.

Love the site, keep them coming.

what about bikes, or specifically, the tour de france? i think white, urban americans love the shit out of biking, as opposed to driving or taking public transportation.

This list is largely reflective of liberal white people. Most American white people (the ones who largely live in suburban fly-over states) would have a huge cultural disconnect with these things.

I mean Asian Fusion food, David Sedaris, architecture, multilingual children?
Maybe in NY, NJ,CT, California, and university towns across America, but definitely not applicable to most American white people.

Republican states=places where white people tend to be the majority, and I can’t think of any red state where the typical white person would fit this list.

How about
1) Book groups that read Oprah books
2) Oprah
3) Diets

oops, wrong account – a thousand pardons

FUKK U RACIST CRACKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I have to say, this site amuses me to no end. Some of it I feel is accurate, some of it’s funny, some of it’s sad because it’s true, but I think hands down the most amusing part is that if there were a sister site “What ______ people like”, where the blank could be any other racial distinction (latino, black, asian, etc.) and there would probably be bombing threats and protests. Not really sure what that all means, but it’s funny as hell.

It’s called, “having culture.” Perhaps others should tear themselves away from fighting with their relatives long enough to enjoy some.

I think you can add:
1. Layering clothes
2. The Canadian health care system
3. Sex and the City
4. Buying local
5. Labour Unions
6. Noam Chomsky
7. Living near a university
8. Salsa dancing / ballroom dancing classes
9. Psychiatrists

I think you can add:
1. Layering clothes
2. Buying local
3. Salsa dancing / ballroom dancing classes
4. Karaoke night
5. Living near a university
6. The Canadian health care system
7. Labour Unions
8. Microbrews
9. Master-planned communities
10. Psychiatrists

How abotu this site!?! I think the popularity of this site shows that white people like reading jokes about white people!

Another few off the top of my head:
1. Having a negative savings rate (going into debt)
2. Complaining about the national debt
3. Credit card rewards / frequent flier miles
4. Condominiums
5. Scuba diving

I agree with Lisa, Sailing has to go on that list white people like sailing because:

1) Non whites don’t like sailing, so they can see it as the last bastion of whiteness.

2) They feel outdoorsey, even if their sailing that day was to go down to the YC for drinks and lie up stories to their white friends.

3) They feel rich by association.

4) They can pretend to be Livingstone or some other white adventurer that really want to “go on the big one”, circumnavigation… must be something in white people’s blood to go around the world and “discover” must tie right into the “ethnic food”/”Japan”/”Only white” thing.

(by they I mean I)

Uh, #2, Lisa – if you are going to post responses here, shouldn’t you actually know how to spell regatta?

Hockey isn’t appropriate at all for this list… most Americans (incl. whites) don’t care about hockey whereas most Canadians (regardless of skin colour) do… but I suspect the author knows this

A few things that definitely should be added to the list:

1) American Apparel, and formerly the Gap

2) Chucks (I’m specifically talking about the shoe, though I guess it could be a reference to Chuck Norris awesomeness jokes)

3) Therapists (moreso than actual therapy – because that would be more indicative of you having a problem needing to be worked through. Therapists are just people that you pay $175 an hour to talk about how to improve your life)

4) Classic Nike basketball/cross-trainers. Bonus points if they’re actually from 1992. (The only acceptable sneaker outside of Chucks)

5) How could you talk about hiking without talking about ROCK CLIMBING?!?! (Hey, I’m planning a trip out to the Poconos in a couple of weeks. I mean, the wall is decent, but there’s nothing like the real thing, getting that fresh air, you know?)

6) NOT tanning (that is so 1998. Do you know what that stuff does to your skin?)
(or actually tanning, and lying about it)

White people CANNOT get enough of “playdates”…god forbid we be accused of letting our little ones run freely and (unsafely) in our burbs….we schedule the crap out of our wee ones, including when and who and what they play. Broaching a “drop off” play date with another mom…beware- it may be greeted with astonishment that you would leave your little darling in the hands of another mom.

This site is Great, but you’ve left out Hunting. White people, and by no means all of the, but ALOT of them want to get in touch with nature, and live off the land. Alot of camping going on, and alot or fishing. Alot of ‘Extreme Sports’ somehow football isn’t extreme enough?

Also, fairplay is big with them. While it’s hilarious to think that they would be into playing fair after their track record, it’s still worth noting.

Love it.

This is amazing!!!! I’ve seen disc golf but not the rest.
1) Disc golf
2) Birding
3) REI vs local outdoor shops
4) Hating Wal-Mart but LOVING Target.
5) Prairie Home Companion
6) Chacos

Lisa was probably forced to take Spanish in public schools instead of learning a sophisticated white person’s foreign language. That’s why she has confused “regada,” which is Carribean-Jaliscan club music, with “regatta,” which is northern Italian for “a group of sunburned douchebags in sandals.”

Oh, white people also really like the word “douchebag.”

You’re a genius – and this is not a fad! Hey how about this one:

White people love single moms!

We’re like the modern day superwoman. But of course, no one wants to be one. Except for me! I enjoy it immensely and I enjoy your blog just as much! Thanks and keep ’em coming.

Add this blog to the list of stuff white people like. Remember that all white people are ashamed of being white and this website gives them a chance to laugh at themselves.

Not sure if its in here because like most white people…. Im lazy.. But IKEA should be in there..

I am most certainly not ashamed to be white like number #36 JD. Maybe you are just a “douchebag” and that’s why you are “ashamed”…

The Regatta is funny. Okay- let’s talk about sex. What about giving oral pleasure to a woman? A cliche to be sure- very white. Anal sex; naughty toys

Please, please, please add “Wearing Shorts/No Coat/A Short-Sleeve Tee in Cold Weather”

Please, please, please put “Wearing Shorts/Sporting a Short-Sleeve Tee/Wearing No Coat in the Freezing Cold of Winter”

I’d have to go with “Bad BBQ.” I’ve never been to a white BBQ that has seasoning and moisture involved.

How is mayonnaise not #1 on this list???
White people LOVE mayonnaise.

1) those hideous rainbow brite rubber clogs for both themselves and their children, what the h***?

2) those tarps to sling around their necks to hold their babies, it gives that white urban tribal feel. We’re so connected to the earth and ourselves and our children that we bought this $80 http://www.mykarmababy.com sling!

3) jogging around with their babies in the middle of winter

4) trashing people who take any kind of medication (“depressed people should just try harder”)

5) but at the same time when it’s their time to be depressed, you’d think they invented it (“depression is a real disease, with treatments, people, like cancer”)

6) we like wearing bracelets and ribbons that show our devotion to important causes

7) and we like important causes in general, but only if everyone knows HOW MUCH WE CARE

8) charter & montesorry schools! What are they? I don’t know. I grew up in the country where it was public or maybe Kiddie Christian Bible School or nothing at all. But here in DC all the yuppie parents want to live in the District so they don’t have to feel like they sold out, but accept vouchers to get their kids into schools they could probably afford anyway. Sad.

9) giving money to street musicians, esp. ones who are playing jazz. Speaking of which, is jazz not on this list? Seriously? From the 30 something Pottery Barn shopper who picks up “Ella’s Greatest Hits” at the checkout counter on a whim to the “serious” record collector who will lecture you for hours about the merits of various pressings, one this is for sure. White people like jazz!

10) also hip hop dance classes! Just watch In Living Color, people.

11) geneaology- not all white people care about this. No one in my family does, thank god. But yes, when I was a public librarian, white people went nuts for this s***! Actually a few black people did too, but since we were in Georgia, most of them didn’t bother with it too much, the information either isn’t there or is too depressing to get into.

12) oh yes! Attaching ones self to some sort of tragic cultural past. Men are the worst for this. I don’t usually see white women talking about how the Irish/Gypsies/whatever were persecuted- we don’t care, because we have more pressing problems like cleaning the bathroom and watching Rock of Love. But the men- whoa. There is a distinct psychological term for this problem- I call it The Unbearable Whiteness of Being. Many “persons of color” do not realize it but sometimes the anguish of privilege can take its physical and mental toll (see #5). The only way to cope is through the music of Kanye West.

13) Supid puns. Guilty (see #12).

14) oh yeah and white people apparently like writing long stupid comments. Sorry and thanks for the site, it’s probably only about 75% accurate but 100% funny, and I’m here for the laughs, not just the insight into how to be less annoying.

It seems like most of these are things that white people like better in theory than in practice. Maybe that in and of itself is a kind of statement — white people like the idea of something much better than its execution.

White people love Kanye West! That needs to be added to the list. So does adopting foreign children.

St. Patrick’s Day is like a second Christmas to white people!

White people love Polo shirts. If a shirt has only 3 buttons, a collar, and a small animal stitched on one side of the chest a white person will need it in every color, patter, material possible.

W.P.L. – Snoop D-O-double-G
They think that by claiming to like Snoop, they will be impressing everyone they meet…especially black folk. However, just ask them to spit a line from Snoop. AND IT CAN’T be a hook.

JD, I for one am not ashamed of myself for being white. In fact, I don’t know anyone who is ashamed for being white. We’re taught that we should feel guilty for something, but in reality, I don’t think there are very many people who actually do.

i work with a tiny, annoying white person who likes everything on this list. and she advises me that designer toys such as those by Kid Robot are widely liked by white people.

White people like damnitcamn are funny. Non-white people are marginalized everyday by whites but they crack me up claiming that if such and such were about Asians, Latinos, or Blacks there would be protests and bombs…the poor white man. What a moron you are.

on March 4, 2008 at 1:16 pm whiter shade of pale

Board games/”game nights” — I think this is a Very White Thing

Okay – education “abroad” and backpacking across Europe are primarily privileged white folk trends

I’ve gotta agree with the fella who mentioned that most white people love the “idea” of many of these suggestions – not necessarily the actual execution of them – we’re all about the appearance of things

But I don’t like coffee.

But then again, my skin is more pinky-yellowy-orangey…

How about a big shout out to Martin Mull and his seminal work in this area in the 1970’s (that was back when giant Deeana Dors ruled the earth, for you children…). Mull’s book contained two major statements that have guided me on my journey to senility:
1) White men love a green lawn, and
2) White people are afraid of laundromats; it’s a fact.

I also feel like there’s some stuff missing:

guns/hunting (they go hand in hand)

country music (enough said)

charades/board games (white people have entire nights devoted to this stuff!)

Beyonce (my ex’s dad was white… I look nothing like Beyonce yet a comparison was still made at some point between me and her)

Halle Berry/Tyra Banks (They’re like the token “hot” black chicks in modern media – and Beyonce too)

White people also love to move to “trendy” areas and live in housing developments there (like Northern Colorado and some places in Idaho and Utah). They really love areas close to mountains so they can participate in all the outdoor activities there. “Outdoorsy” is a really awesome word white people like to use to describe themselves in personals adds.

Blogs? Just like this one. White folks can’t do without blogging to no-one really about their opinions on stuff like the war, gadgets and all other stuff .

I am a white woman and I love Dansko clogs( preferably teh ones that look like mary janes), small-scale floral prints, vintage pyrex bowls, and wearing an apron when I cook. I also love listening to music written and sung by gay men and talking to my cat.

Sometimes I stir cake batter in a pyrex bowl while wearing an apron with a small-scale floral print and dansko clogs, as I listen to The Magnetic Fields or The Smiths and toss the occasional comment to my cat.

A lot of white women also love Jane Austen.

May I humbly add: “Pretending to be Native American somewhere in their heritage” to the list?

white people LOVE to take online quizzes. “I learned so much about myself!”

I’m going to put one together that is based on this site so that I and all my white friends can judge just how white we are.

(I’m not really going to do this as i’m way too busy with my volunteer work & the Sunday NYT Style section. But if I were it would look like this: rate yourself on a scale of 1 – 5, 5 being i super idenitify with that statement for all the ‘white people like’ statements. then have funny categories people fall into)

introspection, being painfully self-aware: we congratulate each other and ourselves for navel-gazing that is something close to narcissism.

White people love Facebook, but not MySpace.

I have to agree — white people really love sailing.

White people also love museums, monuments, making bullet lists in their planners, hating paper plates and crossbred dogs, i.e. the Puggle.

At least, this is in my experience.

Texas Hold ‘Em…and poker tournaments in general. Especially if there is a buy in and at some dudes house. Oh..and British comedy.

@ 78 MW

I’ll have to agree with you about the infatuation with Beyonce.

I used to sell jewlery at a high-end retailer and I can’t tell you how many white women would come in, ask to see a pair of chandelier earrings, put them in their ears, and then ask “Do I look like Beyonce?”

If I had a dime for every time I had to hear this . . .

Where is the website for what Black people love? This funny…what is strange is I love some of these things too…and I’m Black! What does that mean…

This list is the story of me and all my friends.

No one cares what the white people in flyover states like.

“The Liberal Arts” – if there were ever anything whiter than spending 100k of your parents money to study a subject that will guarantee you nothing more than a lifelong air of pretension and a need to spend MORE of your parents money to go back to school later and get a real degree, I ain’t seen it.

OH and wearing sweatshirts with shorts and flip flops!!

and Beer Pong!!!!!!!!

How could you forget Beer Pong!!!!!

This is so funny, but I think Yoga NEEDS to be added to this list!! And the coffee one is so acurate. Also, being called a “valley girl” can be an insult to a girl on the outside when she secretly knows she loves it! OMG, me? No way…

My Dominican friend asked me last week “why do white people put (potato) chips on their sandwich?” Right before I fell out of my chair laughing there was a split second where I was stunned. I was not aware this was a racial issue. I think this blog is the perfect place to explore whether or not this is just somthing white people like.

Correct spelling. Regada? Definitely left coast. East coast would be sausage not sushi.

The GLASSES.

I have some. God, haha, this entire list is me and everyone I know. I’m not white, it’s the lifestyle, not the skin color, that you’re talking about here. And yeah, in that sense, I’m the whitest person ever.

I don’t see how people can find this offensive, even if it applies to them. It completely applies to me, but it’s just hilarious to read this blog and realize how alike everyone I know actually is.

@31… “Hating Walmart but loving Target”

Somebody is writing this site about ME!
but seriously the “hating walmart but loving target” thing is super true.
also, expensive juices. Like odwalla, naked, evolution, bolthouse farms. But not jamba because they use styrofoam.

white people like black people. we know they need help in becoming more like us

hawaiian print shirts and “hang loose” hand signals in hawaii…the more adventurous ones will try and talk in broken english.

More suggestions, in no particular order:

1 Destination weddings. The expense and, if a tropical destination, the embarrassment of the bride-to-be in a bikini ensures only friends, not family (and especially parents), will attend. White people don’t like family involved in their family gatherings.
2 Hypnobirthing. All the social currency of natural childbirth, absent the pain. Waterbirthing is a close second.
3 Blogging.
4 Referring to race/ethnicity as “____ people”, not “_____s”. E.g. “white people”, never never NEVER “whites”.
5 Ecotourism. Then, after the trip’s over, getting cynical about it and telling friends how you felt you did more harm than good trampling all over those poor penguins’ nesting grounds.
6 Certification. Fair Trade, Oregon Tilthe Organic, Bishram Yoga, whatever.
7 Slow Food.
8 Composting. A trick — most of us are not really into composting; it’s too filthy for our clean white hands. But we’ll tell friends we have “just started a bin” to one-up them on our eco-consciousness.
9 “Supporting a cause” while not outright donating. We white people want something for our “gifts”, be it a Sierra Club canvas bag or a Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars CD (I am listening to mine right now). Then our peers will see how good we are without us having to bring it up in conversation.

I should add for 8 (above) — even if we actually DO compost, it’s not like it’s really hard to do.

White people like:
sea mammals
pretending to be Irish
plastic surgery
snow
angst
rap-rock
Europe, the ancestral home of white people

As a White Guy who likes basically 75% of the items on the list, I humbly offer a few new suggestions:

The Comb-Over
Classical Music
Keith Olbermann
Matt Damon
The Dave Matthews Band
70’s Soft Rock (Seals & Croft, Gerry Rafferty, Chicago)

We really ought not to celebrate white people as they are the bane of the world’s existence. Please stop being white and make sure to acknowledge that all of this stuff immediately loses its value (though most of it sucked in the first place) now that the whites got their hands on it.

Ooh, yeah, questionaires, that and customer service surveys, a complete subset unto itself. This hits on a couple “white” nerves, the satisfaction of telling someone how we feel (probably goes back to unfeeling, uncaring parents), silent disapproval (typing is not really that loud, even when done emphatically), and voting, another nearly all-white activity.

That is, until Obama. Thanks, Obama, for taking a nearly perfect, all white, mostly male activity and giving the biggest minority out there the same feeling of satisfaction we get for deciding on the lesser of 2 evils (puts me right back at Starbucks, sucking air through my teeth trying to figure out how faggy my coffee order will be today).

When do I get to talk about my slightly modified late-model German sedan?

One more! How about the little Darwin Fish thing on their cars.

on March 4, 2008 at 5:01 pm WAY to into my car

Don’t forget Claiming Irish Heritage. Particularly in March, to enable them (okay, me) to feel ethnic. Whatever that means.

saying you can’t be racist because you have a black friend

It’s “regatta” not “regada.” White people love sailing but we know how to spell the terms.

A few suggestions:

1. Claiming minute Native American ancestry, normally expressed as an absurd fraction like, “I’m 1/32nd Cherokee on my mother’s side.” Note: It is always a large and well-known tribe. Tribes like the Sioux and Apache who “fought the man” are truly trendy, but the innocent victim status of the Cherokee is equally appropriate.

2. In the same vein, supporting Leonard Peltier.

3. Rage Against the Machine. Communo-anarchistic multi-millionaire muscians are always cool, especially since they are back together.

4. Che. Every white college student has their Che phase. This is exercised by wearing Che T-shirts and carrying Red Star shoulder bags. Actual knowledge of the Cuban Revolution is irrelevant.

Call me what you will, but I think this site is just as bad as any other racist site out there. The idea behind racism is making blatant stereotypes about a group of people based upon nothing more than the color of their skin…how is this any different? Every white person who has talked about how hilarious this is, and how they “hate being white,” is only doing so because they know that objecting to this site will deem them a “racist,” and that is every white person’s biggest fear.

I am a white female, and I am going to study abroad in South Africa in the Fall. I love food from other cultures, and I want to have bilingual children because I think it is ignorant and arrogant of Americans to think they only need to speak English. I like non-profit organizations because they help people (of ALL races). I like coffee, sushi, and yoga…and I am really interested in learning about other cultures (though I will never claim to be an expert on them). I would love to live by the water because I think it’s peaceful and I like to swim. I like diversity because I think learning from all sorts of different kinds of people is an important part of how we can make our world a more harmonious place. My parents drive a Toyota Prius. I support Barack Obama because I think he is a “change we can believe in.” I have some black friends who, while I love them dearly, I sometimes do, to be quite honest, feel like I need to have with me in order to be accepted by certain groups of people. This website kind of makes me feel that way even moreso, if I’m being judged by the color of my skin this way.

But, I don’t particularly like modern furniture, and I don’t think I’ve ever threatened to move to Canada. (Though maybe now I should to try harder to be sure to fulfill my white stereotype.) I don’t even know who Michael Gondry is, and arts degrees are not really my thing. I don’t hate my parents, I like having a TV, and I don’t snowboard. I’m not a big fan of marijuana (or public radio for that matter) and I’m pretty sure I’ve never made anyone feel bad about going outside.

Tell me I am this way because I’m white, because I am privileged, I don’t care. I am not claiming to be a saint; I don’t claim to be completely immune to racism; no one is perfect. What I’m saying is, I get the point. And I don’t like it. I believe in the human race, and this website (though by all means indulge yourselves because it’s free speech) is counterproductive. I refuse to apologize for the color of my skin, and suggest everyone on this site do the same (white, black, purple, blue, yellow, whatever).

Oh, and I like hockey too. GO UNH!!

Most of the things on this list are either helpful to the world, community, the mind, the heart or just plain fun…I don’t know why it’s considered a joke. Who started this list someone who isn’t white? Why? to start some more unnecessary hostility?

White people love Bob Marley’s ‘Legend’ CD. It’s probably the only reggae CD some own.

140 Jenny:

People like you and the self-righteous, indignant attitude of your post is precisely why this blog is so incredibly funny. The unintentional comedy of posters like you make this blog that much more hilarious.

I will add another recommendation in honor of Jenny:

5. Complete inability to recognize obvious satire.

1. going to the gym
2. women’s groups
3. Barnes and Noble
4. the stock market
5. vitamin infused water / smartwater

146 Matthew:

A few things. First of all, I’m not self-righteous. I just have self-respect. Is it wrong to be happy with myself the way I am? I still refuse to apologize for not feeling bad about the color I was born with. And like I said, I get it–but I don’t like it. I don’t appreciate stereotypes about any group, for any reason, in any form–not even satire.

I don’t claim that these things are not true of some percentage of white people. I only believe that this blog, no matter how satirical it is, is (like I said before) counterproductive.

In the words of a black man whom I admire very much:

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

This is not love.

White people LOVE bumper stickers.

White people will also stand in lines for no reason other than a line has formed.

6. Taking life far too seriously.

7. Self-righteously claiming not to be self-righteous.

I highly recommend you keep posting Jenny, it’s folks like you that make this blog what it is, more so than the blogger.

How is your blog scientific? I think you are completely reducing all people of white skin color into one amalgamated group. What about Australian, British, French, Scottish, Irish, Norwegian cultured white people. I agree with your blog in the context of middle class north American people. The fact that your blog is based on a ‘race’ that doesn’t even exist is pretty low and behind as a concept. It seems that you just need an excuse to rant about things you find ridiculous. People in general do need to stop taking themselves seriously, but there is nothing wrong with being, vegan, having a water bottle or studying arts and practicing Buddhism.

1) “Fight Club” White people are obsessed with the fact that their lives are too complicated and revolve around materials and media, so they buy the $30 special edition of the Fight Club DVD (and place it in an Ikea DVD shelf).

2) “The Kite Runner.” This is the ultimate “last book I read” response for most white women on eHarmony.

3) More generally– “Mentioning how you read the book a movie is based on.”

This website is hilarious. If you are offended, you are taking yourself way too seriously.

White people love to tell you that they are 1/18 Scottish, 1/8 German, 1/3 Hungarian to sound a little more “exotic.”

White people also love to watch movies and tv shows about black people like Run’s House, Flavor of Love, etc and talk to you like they are down with the homies.

And a friend wants to know where PBS is…

Having Mexican nannies push their little blond babies around in Cadillac-ish contraptions called strollers…

Would love to read:

1. Any sport/activity that requires cumbersome, extensive equipment and colour-coordinating ensembles. Cycling is a great example. Maybe even spin class, b/c then they don’t have to worry about skin cancer, wrinkles, sun damage, etc. Just look in the newest Nike catalog for directions. Pilates counts too, because it’s exclusive ($$$), usually requires a few personal lessons to prep for an audience/class.

2. Apparel. Please refer to InStyle or any printed media containing celebrity billboarding.

3. The low-carb movement.

4. Feng shui. It’s soooooo spiritual.

5. Mini-library of coffee table books. Includes some collector’s classics too. Bukowski and Goethe a must!

Glorious website. The only glaring omission I see is that white people all consider themselves expert photographers, and of course black and white is where da hood at.

This maybe the best damn blog that I have ever been too. But I have another one, white people love to have their feet out. Sandals, walking around barefoot all the time, etc…..White people just love to show their feet. Keep up the good work.

From this website I’m learning how to become a more legit white person. I’m so glad you created it. I’m able to fit in better with other white people I know. For example, I had no idea there were metal water bottles! When did those come out?

White people like going to gallery openings and art walks.

White people like the latest diet and fitness crazes.

White people like spending a lot of money on their appearance to look natural and aren’t trying too hard.

Which is kinda the foundation of all the humor on this site.

Seriously, shut up. If you find this website kind of offensive to white people, well tough titty. Oh dear, it must be so hard being white and having an ironic website make fun of your culture passive aggressively. Must be reeeeaaaallllly tough. Come post again when your race is systematically oppressed. Like, for realsies. Not on the internet.

Also, I think it’s really progressive that you mentioned the race of the man you so proudly quoted. Oh! Thank God you quoted a black man! I think we wouldn’t have taken you seriously if you hadn’t! Too bad you’re too narcissistic to realise you’re pretty much the perfect representation of the cross-section this blog highlights.

Obsessive self examination as a means of absolution.

With self-depreciating humor.

And defining one’s self via obscure/ironic/exclusive cultural references to deflect guilt about privilege.

THIS BLOG IS PURE GENIUS.

KEEP IT COMING, DUDE!

What about spelling your kids’ first names different so they’re a special? Like instead of Brian, you spell Bryen, or Briann.

Oh wait….thats black people. wrong website.

Good God!!! 176 posts (so far) on March 4th!

How about blogging? Apparently white people can’t get enough of blogging. Or posting to blogs. I guess since I’m posting to a blog (and I’m white) I’m guilty as well.

Someone may have already suggested this but there’s no way I’m gonna read 3 million plus responses to a blog about stuff white people.

Probably also means no one will read this response. Oh well. As long as I feel as though I’ve contributed meaningfully to society, my job’s done!

Frisbee is a must.

Don’t know how you’d work it in but snubbing the Gap and secretly wearing their jeans is an issue.

Global warming: my god we love to talk about the tragedy of global warming and “what must be done [by others] about it”.

Acoustic guitar; expert level white people can do jammin’ Bob Marley covers!

Sharing fond memories of some period of time (probably Mardi Gras in college but they’ll call it a “traditional Cajun celebration”) spent in New Orleans.

167 Brade got it exactly right.

And so have you, well done! The sheer magnitude of stupid people who have misunderstood your humorous gift and railed against this blog is proof that you’re doing an awful lot right.

I fit in pretty well with 80% of the list but it doesn’t mean I have to get offended, upset, or even change my ways. It’s kind of nice to realize that while I spend so much time bitching about how unoriginal the majority of the people around me are, the fact that someone can nail me with this list means I’m just as unoriginal. I’m also a product of my environment, and maybe I should stop being so hypocritical.

Jenny, you just got all upset because this blog is so spot-on. Being able to make fun of yourself is important and not necessarily counterproductive.

As a side note, I do agree with everyone who’s saying this list doesn’t apply to white people, but liberal and fairly rich white people. However, if you replace the word “white people” with “liberal and fairly rich white people” every time the words occur in the blog, it would lose a lot of comedic value.

Ok lets move on now an put it all into catagories,

Things that make them seem smart/esteemed.Colledge edumacation even from a tech school

Things that make them seem wealthy/bling factor. 22″s on the prius, gucci/luie bags

A knowledge of current affairs/trends. “Great Nelson Bubble lamp chad”

Things that make them seem health concience. Gyms/Bottled H2O

Tech knowledge. Iphone

Sports. Whats MotoGP???If takes more than One ball they have No clue.

The Arts. Writing words all over finger painting is not art unless your mame ends in basquait.

Drinking culture. real bars don’t sell stella girls….

Vacationing/Summering at. Hamptons need I say more.

Anything that scares them. the wrong side of town.

Bad Advertising. McDonalds adds??

Restaurants/Take out
non of them ever cook unless they are lower class an watch nascar

I’m just giving one example for each you can do the rest have fun and of course add your catagories as you see fit….

Jenny, m’dear, what you should apologize for is your sadly lacking sense of humor.

Paste magazine is more this kind of white than Rolling Stone.

1) I never even tried to compare the situation of a privileged white person to that of oppressed people. So get that straight.
2) I mentioned that MLK was black ON PURPOSE to indicate my own bit of sarcasm, so it’s you that didn’t get it this time.

In general: I have stated my OPINION–I disagree with the existence of this kind of blog–and I really don’t care what any of you have to say about it. I never tried to stop you from writing any of this (as I said, keep on blogging!) I only wished to express my point of view, which I have now done. I’m glad I could add to the comedic value of this blog.

“White People Love Being Spiritual But Not Religious”

“White People Love Flip-Flops No Matter the Weather”

Jogging
Plastic surgery
Humus
Saying ‘Hello’ in Spanish
Dimly lit restaurants
Being first at anything
Frisbee
Hookah

The WCLU will file suit with the Supreme Court (which was white a lonnnnnng time ago.

What white people like:

– looking at the map of the world and saying quietly to themselves, “we rule it & there’s bugger all the rest of the world can do about it”.

– controling over 90% of the worlds wealth

– being responsible for most of the modern age that everyone here takes for granted

– being able to take these sorts of satire sites in their stride

– having the power to anhilate any group or nation that really pisses white people off

a lot of young white people (esp. girls) like using the word “like”, they use it in almost every sentence

I hope you do add ’70s rock. It amazes me how many white people know all the same obscure bands and singer-guitarists from the era, even when it was decades before their time.

And I suppose “playing the guitar” should also be on the list if ’70s rock is– ’70s rock is the reason why so many white people play the guitar, or wish they did.

Niggers, Jews, Homosexuals, Arabs, Chinks, Gooks, and Spics, all need to fucking go!

1. Christmas Cards (Most notably ones with those obnoxious letters about how great their family is)
2. SUVs
3. Camping
4. Sitcoms
5. Book Clubs
6. Swimming
7. Other White people knowing their heritage (I’m Irish, etc.)

1) Rain… they just love it…dancing in it, feeling it wash over them….I swear they think they’re closer to nature
2) Oprah…they just love her

They seem to like those puffy vests a lot. Umm hello, my arms get cold too, it’s not like they’re immune.

pretending to care about nature but causing most of the pollution and then beating themselves up about it and feeling guilty about it and making tv shows about how they ought to feel guilty about it and then compensating by using only all-natural products like bottled water and making the landfills bigger the the empty bottles, ad infinitum.

Wearing sandals [like Birkenstocks] & wool socks together.
On a cold day.
Usually with a Starbucks cup in hand.
Also worn usually with shorts and a sweatshirt.
Preferrably khaki cargo shorts and a college/university emblem on sweatshirt. Or Juicy logo. Yoga pants with Juicy written across the butt.
Gigantic sunglasses [MUST be designer].
Gigantic purse.
Hair tied back in a messy knot.
Driving their SUV.

This blog is GREAT! I have to admit that at one point in my life, I myself was ashamed to be white and I coined myself a “wigger”. I was “that white girl” in the group… It was entertaining for a while, but just being who and what you are is much better. Nobody looks at you funny when you talk 🙂

P.S. I think most white females are after their “picket fence” life. You all know what I mean…

Oh, and you have to add stupid-looking hybrid cars to the list (sorry if this was already mentioned).

its kind of sad how racism is now turning towards whites.

I mean back in the day our fucking ancestors were retarded and did shit to blacks which is definently not ok.

Just a notion, hope this shit doesnt come back.

Guys get them to look “Tough and Unique”.

Gals get them to look like a tramp. Especially on their lower backs. Sorry chicks, but people do call them, “Tramp Stamp”.

Can you add Passive Aggression to the list. White people really love passive aggression.

BUMPER STICKERS. white people cover every inch of their bumpers with stickers meant to indicate Who They Are (and also How Funny and Subversive They Are).
Most commonly the stickers rep:
1. insults aimed at other drivers (PG-13 at most)
2. challenging political statements – heavy irony mandatory
a gesture of support for troops, manatees or the earth in general
3. name or logo of their child’s $40,000/yr elementary school

2. telling everyone how that time they saw radiohead changed their life

3. french new wave films

4. celebrating the act of suicide

5. converse all stars

Great site! Sidesplittingly funny! Please add:

– permissive parenting (ie not ever wanting to discipline spoilt brats who will grow up to be useless good-for-nothings)

1. Drinking on holidays to avoid families
2. Dave Matthews Band
3. Remembering (honoring) victims of genocide
4. Driving on Sunday to “see the leaves” in the country and buying baked goods from locals who have stands on the side of the road – and having great respect for the Amish
5. Upholding traditions while recognizing their patriarchal roots (like asking permission to marry your daughter) “ha ha, my fiancee asked my parents for their blessing, but it’s not like my father owns me…ha ha”
6. Hyphenated names

You need to add SCUBA diving to the list. It’s definitely something thrown out there to “one up” your friends… unless the dive, too.

Could this be any more perfectly white? An extremely expensive espresso machine made to order in Seattle, with interesting ‘design’ and ‘aesthetics’? Reviewed with words like “rhapsodic coffee-geek argot” and used at a hip Manhattan cafe? (Can I have one?)

1. Ugly, box vehicles (ie. Nissan Cube, Honda Element)
2. Sarcasm
3. Environmentalism; Green Building
4. The Onion
5. Guy’s wearing winter scarves
6. Peacoats
7. Ska/Swing/Rockabilly
8. Dolphin/Butterfly/Sun/Moon tattoos on a girl’s lower back
9. Fighting Consumerism (via Adbusters)
10. Minimal Techno/House

This is fantastic:
-HGTV (any home remodelling show really)
-Birthing Doulas
-Making your own baby food
-Presidential Primary debates
-Thinking Angelina Jolie has become “nobel”
-Veggie Burgers
-Kashi snacks
-Saying “I want to learn to surf”
-Making your own trail mix
-Chai Tea drinks
-American Idol
-Saying your “green” but driving a 9mpg Chevy Tahoe because it “makes me feel safer”
-www.one.org

I could go on — but I’ll let someone else crack at it.

I wish I could write entries with you:

White people like…

+ Facial hair
+ Wearing athletic apparrel despite a disdain for professional sports
+ Road trips (especially the kind people take in order to “find themselves”)
+ Using the phrase, “No one gets between me and an open bar”
+ Walking around downtown in thrift shop clothes while fearfully avoiding homeless people who are in most need of thrift shop clothes
+ Expending effort but doing nothing that benefits others in order to “find themselves”
+ Telling people they were into emo back in the 80’s (ie. when they were 8 years old)
+ Text message-based romantic relationships
+ Unwillingly checking into rehab after going through a phase of chemical dependancy… a phase often initiated in an effort to “find themselves”
+ Infidelity

First, I love this list as a white person. Second, I agree that most of these things are for liberal white people. Give a few shoutouts to things like:

– Nascar
– 90s Minivans, 00s Tahoe-like Cars (in direct opposition to the Prius)
– Dive Bars (if you’re not the only white person in a bar/ethnic restaurant, you’re probably in a dingy bar filled with white people exactly like you debating this list)
– Collared Shirts (I would say Polos, but then you lose the “I’m whiter than you effect” of L’Accoste, Brooks Brothers, or even an unknown mom and pop shop that has their own label and tailors everything to you).

White people love this blog and will pass it around to other white people who will talk about in on their blog. They will laugh at their friends for being so white but will deny being that white themselves because they only match 78 of the topics.

1) writing blogs
2) genealogy
3) saying they also write/play the guitar if you tell them you’re a writer/musician

Guns. I love mine. Believe it or not, they haven’t hurt a single person! Go figure!

We also like to SIIHPAPP.

White people like “3 Point Shooting”:

John Paxton, Steve Kerr, Larry Bird, JJ Redick, Dirk Nowitski, Jason Kapono, and Kyle Korver (to name a few).

this is ridiculous. i cannot believe how many of these I fit into. My dad and I love this blog but we don’t talk about it face to face, because I’m-that’s right!-studying abroad.

as of the current 82, I am:

1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 21, 26, 28, 35, 36, 40 [heard about this from an NPR podcast, listened to on my iPod.], 41, 42, 43, 44, 46, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 55, 57 [LOVED Juno.], 59, 61, 63, 74, 66, 71, 72, 76, 77, 78, and 80.

43 of them in total. For shame! I’d de-whiten and move to a neighborhood where white people are the minority, but i’d just find myself back on the list. White priveledge–you can run, but you can’t hide.

I can’t believe facebook/myspace aren’t on here. Many white people have more ‘friends’ on these websites than they do in real life.

Also worthy of a post: tattoos of “tribal” bands and/or japanese/chinese words.

and doing anything “freelance” is pretty trendy with them as well.

I especially like screwing myself over the evil black rifle thing.

Oh yeah, fuck you ARock

Why hasn’t anybody mentioned country clubs?? Any kind of country club?? In particular I think of a Golf Country Club, Yacht Clubs, Tennis Clubs, etc. Either way it is a club that you have to pay to get in

I’ve got a good one – white people love to throw ghetto parties; the one time where it’s ok to make fun of other races

“Making Out in Public”

In the middle of a busy sidewalk preferably.

I work in Manhattan (NYC) and I’m pretty sick and tired of seeing white people suck face (while 3 million people have to walk around them) as if they’re in their own little romantic comedy.

This list has no relevance unless number 1 is America.

From some of the responses above; white people (by which I mean white Americans) love to sub-categorise themselves in order to allow themselves to indulge in a blog that laughs at white people, but without having to accept that any of these things actually relate to them as individuals…

Also, they love to claim heritage that isn’t purely anglo-saxon… I remember hearing about a white fella proudly telling a black fella that his great great great grandmother was black, in order to gain kinship, his face swiftly fell upon hearing the reply: “so your great great great grandfather raped a slave then!”.

For the record I’m welsh…

I’d be happy for any of these things to apply to me.

Wish for it even.

Just one of them at least.

I forgot to mention in my previous post that nothing gets a group of white, middle-class people organized like a Pro-Choice demonstration. There is little dissention on this topic…you’re usually for it or against it, unless you get into post first tri-semester, partial-fetus abortions – details, details.

Also, I find this site very amusing. I actually laughed out loud several times. Very funny – (Just thought I’d validate you in case you are white. White people also love validation).

I’d say anal communication. If it’s something that’s important to them, they’ll hunt you down to the end of the earth to get an answer out of you.

I tend to agree that many of items on this list would be more appropriate for Stuff Yuppies Like. However, I love it nonetheless!

I’m sure others have mentioned this stuff, but here are a few that I thought should make the list:

*Piercings
*Renaissance Fairs
*Fear

I witnessed a breakup b/c the bf couldn’t stop playing the game. “wait, they need me”-the bf

I’m shockingly surprised that nobody’s noted the Martin Mull documentary on The History of White People In America in this whole discussion!

White people like lists of “stuff that white people like.” It shows that they are enlightened enough to make fun of themselves.

also worthy of a future post: Harry Potter.
(what about reading Harry Potter in a Starbucks by the bay with your Mac open? i’ve seen this about a dozen times)

#236 Text message based relationship

i’ve been through that

I also think soy milk should be on this list. i think there’s a big problem with a) lactose-intolerance, and b) being associated with lame old-school cow-juice. its just not snobby and trendy enough.

Secondly, i think white people are really thankful for Ralph Lauren. It serves all of their “conservative dress” needs for those occasions when they’re meeting parents or going to the countless ‘casual outdoor’ weddings that ensure them to be one with nature and love all at the same time. Besides, most white people aren’t sure about tommy hilfiger – even though it boasts nautical themes and primary colors, most white people worry they’re not ‘hip’ or ‘street’ enough to sport it.

well even though you all should be outside I just wanted to remind you of how much white people love blogs.

seriously, people will spend hours reading blog after blog but not read the news.

having blogs. linking your blog to those of others (often white people).

white people also love to financially support places like ikea (who make disposable stuff to fill your whole house and then later landfill) but then claim to love the environment. at least the ones hanging out in bike shops are hopefully driving less. yeeesh.

Black comedians who do extremely broad interpretations of white accents in order to tell jokes about white people. This is one of the ‘reverse kinship’ ploys designed to make white people feel better about historic treatment of black people, and it works well. Credibility rises when you listen with other white people – a form of social payback deemed highly respectable, particularly if you laugh at the right places. Once demonstrated, you can then proceed to enjoy the rest of the performance socially guilt-free and gain higher approval ratings from other white people for your open broad-mindedness and general hipness. Additional credibility is gained if either the title of the show or the performer’s name contain the word ‘Def’.

(Note: These will actually be jokes about poor people retooled to be told as if they were about black culture. This allows people of all colors who have cable to make fun of people who can’t afford cable within a socially-acceptable construct. Best demonstrated on cable channels.)

Repeating specific jokes from such performances out of context is technically grounds for suit in the workplace. Limit mentions intended for bonding purposes to, “Hey, did you catch Chappelle last night?”

oh yeah. white people also love to pair their food with wine. but there are some specific rules and such about it. then these rules can be broken. to learn more, find a nice white sommelier.

“Looking Over Your Damn Shoulder When You’re at Work”

Geesh! Can I read about Stuff White People Like in peace?!?!

QVC
Weird kitchen gadgets (garlic press? apple corer? melon baller?)
Expensive writing utensils (i.e. MontBlanc)

White people love getting their hair braided on the beaches of the Caribean Islands.
on that note, anywhere they travel, wearing the “native” clothes, don’t get me started on when they are in India…

Nanny Cams, Would rather watch someone abuse their kids via the net rather than pay the wages of someone qualified to watch them.

i’m too lazy to read all the posts, maybe that’s something we like, but also us white people love to quote movies and television. some nights the entire conversation will simply be regurgitated quotes with nothing original mentioned.

This has to be one of the most racist things I have read. If this was done for any other race it would be removed and Jesse Jackson would be demanding the people responsible be punished. And most white people have been brainwashed that we are responsible for everything bad in the world, although whites only make up less than 10% of the prison population. Oh yeah, thats our fault too.

# 301

We’ll let you in on a little secret . . . there’s tons of us who, kill, rape, and steal . . . but only 10% of us will be in the system at any given time. We know that we’re just as bad, but luckily, the other races (especially blacks) are considered more dangerous and more likely to be captured and convicted.

But sssssh . . . don’t tell anybody.

Debating strategy about sports they haven’t played since junior high
Lacrosse

White people think they know everything. They like to go on to the website http://www.stuffwhitepeoplelike.wordpress.com and make suggestions as to their own “better” additions to the list.

The title here should be list of things YUPPIES like. As a white person who is not a yuppie I take offense.

Let’s do one for any other other race and see how long it takes for Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to make public demands for apology.

Add disdain for thinly-veiled racism, and anything related to what your culture dislikes (in lieu of something real, substitute what you’ve seen on TV, or the ‘Monopoly’ man).

Was the “rhyming slurs” page too demanding?

Not having a DJ, but a live band at their weddings…and paying $20K for it.

I’m white and I don’t like 90% of the things on this list. You should change the name of this website to STUFF WHITE YUPPY PEOPLE LIKE because this is not a “typical” white person list – this is a list for white people that are clueless and can’t tell which end is up.

# 312

Say what now? I’m too busy dealing with the Sean Bell (50 Shots) murder . . . ahem . . . police shooting case to be concerned about protesting a site like this geared towards African-Americans.

I wish I was Superman, but sir, you give me too much credit. I can’t fight all them blogs.

Besides, there’s already a million copy-cat sites circulating as I type. I don’t like baggy clothes, kool aid, and being a Pimp like they all seem to believe. But anyway, there’ll be a trillion more of these sites by the time the trial’s over. After those cops get away with murder . . . ahem . . . I mean, after they’re proven not guilty, I need some white sand under my feet . . . I’m thinking Jamaica or the Bahamas. What do you suggest?

Music Festivals!!!!! Lolapalooza, warped tour, wakestock, woodstock, SARSstock (I’m from T.O.).

I can only remember one hip hop tour and that was the up in smoke tour.

we also like frisbees, but some of us insist on calling them “discs” and playing “sports” like “disc golf.”

…and smoothies….don’t forget the smoothies

“This has to be one of the most racist things I have read. If this was done for any other race it would be removed and Jesse Jackson would be demanding the people responsible be punished.

It’s a different dynamic if the group you are satirizing is in the ruling majority and has an overwhelming cultural presence. A site satirizing the culture of a minority and/or oppressed group would be offensive considering the context.

Also, prison population isn’t really an indicator of anything except the institutionalized racism in the judicial system. I wonder what the percentage of white judges is?

This list is definitely funny, but the comments from the pissed-off folks who are taking this thing too seriously are just hilarious!

How about the Dave Mathews Band, Energy drinks, Ginseng, charity events, dirt bike riding, golf, Tommy Bahama, flip flops, Surf competitions, sake, Tofu, 3-day walk for breast cancer, art, tattoos, guitar solos, lap-tops???? All of the above 🙂

You forgot Craigslist, “healthy” energy drinks, and riding bicycles.

Since I am only half white (and the other half is Latino) I am pretty sure I can accurately forecast that within the next few years, white people are gunna be all hopped up on the following:

1. Yerba Matte
2. Pupusas
3. Tango music
4. Stand up paddle surfing (this shit is so fucking lame)
5. Lemonwilde
6. fiscal conservatism

I agree with above said…

Screw the Racist… if “White” were “Black” or “Hispanic” or “Asian”… then although it could be considered “equally funny” there would be a P.C. outrage… so SCREW YOU!
and check out the site http://uspidedownstamps.com

This only applies to wealthy Americans, and largely appeals to those who live in a metropolitan area (NYC, Chicago, LA), the Northeast, and California. You disregard the other white people; as a student living in the South I know for a fact that they LOVE their steak and very very few are vegetarians and vegans. They also value a good old Coors and taking it slow. No way in hell can they afford some of the products on here.

If you make less than 50k a year are you really white? Or just aspire to it?

on March 5, 2008 at 12:53 pm random white guy

I second the need for “Brunch” to be added. Also, “Body Cleanses” or “Fasts” or “Colon Cleanses” or some derivation of that concept.

1. Red bull and vodka.
2. Abbreviations – saying things like def, awes, etc
3. Croakies (those things you put on your sunglasses so you don’t lose them)
4. Gum
5. Urban Dictionary
6. Scotch
7. Patrick Swayze

I hate Coors but Bud light is good! This is all funny because it is SOOOOOOOOOO true. I like most of the things on this site. I’m white but, I’m not rich by any means. I have however experienced many of the finer things in life. You don’t have to be white to do so…………nor do you have to be a racist biggot. I am from CA though and it is one of the best places to be……..stop being so sensitive people…..SHEESH 🙂

a good 75% of these apply to my white ass.

but i think you should include

1. J. Crew
2. wearing galoshes (white women specifically)..doesn’t matter if it is raining outside or not.
3. friend of a friend name dropping
4. Sudoku
5. Going to graduate school…then talking about how graduate school was a waste of time.
6. talking about saving money / losing weight…no matter how much they have of either.

hey man, this list is just a list of what affluent twenty something Americans like, not white people. Racist.

Without Cheese it’s bogus

see if white people made a website that included all of the things black people like, such as

watermelon
fried chicken
collie greens
cat fish
rims
cadillacs
chains
expensive street shoes
puffy jackets with fake fur
head-rags
martial arts
things with chrome

then we would be called racist…

There is a difference between racism and stereotyping. This is NOT racism, it is stereotyping. Stereotyping is a good thing, it ties into one’s instinct, can be found funny…etc. Racism is a bad thing, you are deciding to HATE another solely on the color of their skin. Stereotyping is not hating, it is an educated guess on the vast majority of a race.

I am white. I don’t like all of the things listed but I accept that most white people like said things. I also can laugh about this.

Black people who see a black person make fun of another black person and stereotype against him/her, say “what an asshole”

Black people who see a white person make fun of a black person and stereotype against him/her, say “what a racist.”

Grow up.

As for those of you who think the judicial system in America is the reason for the overwhelming statistics of prison demographics, you are fucking idiots. Is it the judicial systems fault that a lot of black people are killing people and dealing drugs and doing shit that they aren’t supposed to be doing? No, it is not. It IS however their job to punish them when they get caught. So fuck all of you liberal assholes who have NO idea what you’re talking about.

Response to “White College Student”

IT ISNT RACISM, GO BOINK YOUR SISTER. GROW A SENSE OF HUMOR AND THEN LET YOUR BALLS DROP

What about Journey’s Greatest Hits? You know you all own a copy (or wish you did). Just walk into any bar with more than three white people in it and play “Don’t Stop Believin’.” See what happens.

White people love extremely specific magazines!
They also love lists such as “top 50 things to see before you die”.

Add to that, inspirational blogs such as LifeHacker, timferriss.com, stevepavlina.com, ZenHabits

i didn’t read through all of the comments, so sorry if i’m duplicating…
but you can’t leave out golden retrievers and labradors

Beards! Men like having them and stroking them and women like talking about how much they’d like to find a man with a good one.

i guess when they say white people they really mean american east coast liberal graduates

but thats kind of like me. and i like that you describe that tiny minority as ‘white people’!

white people like wes anderson movies! white people like the pixies! white people like beat poetry and continental philosophy!

I think you would absolutely love the book Bobos in Paradise by David Brooks. I think the “white people” you are referring to are the Bobos mentioned in the book. It would give you a ton of great ideas.

other things white people like to do:

-Not taking a shower
-Putting their parents in asylums
-Kill their parents for money
-Drugs
-Have children then kill them
-Get married then divorced, then get married and get divorced ….
-Killing animals
-Country music
-Reading the tabloids
-Go to Asia and pay to have sex with children

Here are a few more that could be added. If someone has already mentioned any of these, I apologize for the duplication.

1. Astrology

2. Jack Johnson (the musician not the boxer)

5. Anything related to ghosts. i.e. Ghosthunters, ghost shows in general, etc.

6. Aliens. Area 51. However, conspiracy theories in general are not specifically a white thing as some think that Tupac and Biggie’s deaths were conspiracies.

7. Overly used catch phrases.

9. The British Royal family

10. I know that the Prius and recycling have been mentioned but how about going green in general.

11. Napoleon Dynamite

12. Lacrosse, Rugby and Darts. Might as well throw Bowling in there too.

13. Cher, Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Liza Minelli, etc.

Wonderful!! I am not white, but just listened to you on NPR. I can relate to 60/81 of these.

To this I would add (which is stuff I also like):

– Oregon
– going to trendy gyms
– Denying thier suburban roots
– Cooking magazines
– 5/10 year plans and freaking out when they are not on track

Thanks for giving us a shout out.

And thanks too, for clarifying what a stereotype is. You know, like when you said “Stereotyping is not hating, it is an educated guess on the vast majority of a race”. We, the Black People, feel you should be nominated for the Most Well-Traveled, Educated, and Popular White Man of the Year Award.

Why?

Duh . . . because you’ve met the vast majority of the black race and that proves why you’re spot on when you proclaim that most of us like watermelon fried chicken, chains, expensive street shoes, and everything else on your healthy list. None of us would dare drink a bottled water (ok, maybe Poland Springs on a really humid day) or listen to Mos Def (well, some of his songs are kinda lyrically amazing) or study abroad (hold up, we take that back, since some of us are in fact currently abroad trying to soak up some knowledge in the classroom). Damn . . . wait . . . we forgot what we were trying to say.

Oh . . . yeah . . . Nick, we need more people like you in this world. Those who take the time out to get to know each and every single one of us so well. We love that you love us that much. So much so that you think that the vast majority of us belong in jail. We especially loved when you said “Is it the judicial systems fault that a lot of black people are killing people and dealing drugs and doing shit that they aren’t supposed to be doing? No, it is not. It IS however their job to punish them when they get caught.”

Now that was an excellent statement because the whole world knows that only black people kill and deal drugs. Seriously, if white people never do bad things, why on earth should they be punished?

We mean, who else does Lindsay Lohan, Pat O’Brien, Britney Spears, and 80% of white Hollywood get their drugs from?

And even though Scott Peterson is white, he only murdered his pregnant wife, so he doesn’t really count. Oh, and Charles Manson only killed a select few, so he doesn’t count either. Oh, wait . . . Jeffrey Dahmer killed and then ate everyone who crossed his path . . . but maybe that was recycling in a way?

Anyway, we’re going to take a walk now. We just wanted to let you know how intelligent you are. And how non-racist and insightful you’ve been. We’ll be back in a few and will return with an expensive sandwich and some coffee for you even though we don’t eat that shit. Those $9 sandwiches are so damn bland and we can’t stand the fact that coffee stains our teeth.

Ciao bella!

Where the hell is geographic patriotism! I thought that had to be in there somewhere. White people, liberal or not, are shamelessly obsessed with the city/state they live in, and are blindly proud of it in some way, regardless of it being famous for being the birthplace of an important figure, where some type of bread is popular, their overweight populations, or having heaps of dumpsters. An example where this is particularly evident is in support for sport teams.

Another thing you must add is penis size. Mostly to do with white men, obviously, but this cannot be disputed. White men, in every aspect of their social life, love cocks.

Add taking other nation’s or people’s land and going there for vacation

Site name needs to be changed to ‘Full List of Stuff American White People Like’, most Europeans aren’t pretentious superficial liberals and don’t give a damn about the contents of above list.

BTW this blogs only racist if you don’t have a sense of humour.

White people love buying and owning DVDs. Why pay 20 bucks for something you’ll probably only watch once every 6 months? I have no idea, especially considering your 500 dvd collection will soon become obsolete and you’ll have to do it all over again with Blu-Ray. I don’t get white people

Oh hell yeah they love me!!! Who wouldn’t? My scripts are the realist on tv.

How about running the world – or at least the parts that matter. I like that a lot.

1. Quilts/Quilting/Knitting
2. Flip flops
3. EBAY
4. Garage Sales
5. Donating stuff to Goodwill or other charities
6. mopeds
7. Mapsco or maps in general
8. PTA
9. Salads
10. Doing the Chicken Dance, YMCA, etc. at weddings or other functions!
11. the Thesaurus
12. Monogrammed items! Embroidered gifts!
13. Wool clothing

How about white people who have never been to California talking “Valley” especially those who reside in the middle part of the U.S.
I think it’s funny to see a teenage girl from Kansas or somewhere talking like a valley girl.
Good times.

On TV:

White people love crime dramas. That’s why there are 3 different versions of CSI and countless Law and Order shows.

They also like their medical dramas. ER, etc.

-GODARD MOVIES (or french new wave in general)

-40s (of beer)

-DOING ACID/SHROOMS IN COLLEGE (or just doing acid/shrooms in general)

-FLAVA FLAV

-OLD SCHOOL RAP (DEF JAM RECORDS)

-NOTORIOUS BIG/SNOOP DOGG

– COLLECTING THINGS (VINYL RECORDS, DVDS, ETC.)

– THE TENSIONS OF NEW TECHNOLOGY AND OLD/OUTDATED TECHNOLOGY
-for example, its cool to own a mac and kitchen gadgets, but its also cool to own vinyl (and not cds), VHS (and not DVD, in some circles), analog recording (and not digital recordings; though its also cool to know how to use ProTools and Photoshop), 16mm film (and not digital)..the list goes on. It’d be funny to talk about where one draws the line…in what areas should a white person have the most up to date technology, in what areas should a white person only have throwbacks?

-HAVING A BLACK/ETHNIC/GAY FRIEND OF SOME KIND

-THE TENSION BETWEEN BEING FULL BLOWN PC, AND FULL BLOWN NOT-BC (ironic use of the word ‘nigger,’ etc)

-THE TENSION OF HOW WITH SOME PEOPLE, YOU SHOULD ONLY BE INTO THEIR “EARLY STUFF,” YET WITH OTHERS, ITS COOLER TO ONLY BE INTO THEIR “LATER STUFF,” ONCE IT BECOMES HACKNEYED TO SAY THAT YOU’RE INTO THEIR “EARLY STUFF”

-LIVING IN LOFTS

on March 5, 2008 at 4:10 pm The_Other_White_Guy

White people love to be a hero, or do stupid or dangerous adventuresome things. Sometimes this may involve animals.

To # 398:

Bull riding and rodeos in general come to mind.

OR when some douchebag jumps off of a building, cliff, etc and has a parachute malfunction or some other related difficulty which nearly costs them their lives and then they gloat triumphantly afterwards about escaping death. Now that’s white!

I think Peyton must live in a Fly Over state. You don’t count.

Great list.

Another author white people love is Dave Barry. I experienced this college. Some of my dorm mates couldn’t get enough of reading his stuff OUT LOUD. I would just shake my head.

Dave Barry is somewhat funny, but white people can’t get enough of him.

Consider him for your list 🙂

Ice Cream…all white people LOVE ice cream.

I once worked in a plaza where a Cold Stone Creamery had just opened. When I got out of my car to, a white man in a business suit was almost skipping to the door or the Cold Stone.

Also, the local ice cream parlor has a line outside the door on Sundays of white people trying to get ice cream…the funniest thing? It’s in a ‘black neighbor’ pretty much considered the bad part of town.

Also, if you want to take out/bomb/crush/whatever a bunch of white people in one go, just hold an ice cream social.

THEY LOVE IT!

White people also like to find blogs like this one that satirize white people then forward them to others…

W.P.L – Green Bean casseroles at the holidays! Every family has their own special ‘twist’ on the recipie

W.P.L – Spending top dollar for brand new clothes at place like Abercrombie & Fitch that look like they got dragged out of the Goodwill bin, or they are hand-me-downs from older, preppy big brother.

W.P.Love – St. Patrick’s Day!! OMG!!! It is a national excuse to celebrate some seriously pale culture, and act a fool. Funnily enough, in Ireland, it is far less of a big deal…

ultimate frisbee. Nascar. Trucker hats. Acting black. Foreign accents. Foreign cinema. Art House movies. Snowboarding.

guns/hunting (they go hand in hand)

Not in the hood the don’t.

ROTFL. This piece did nothing but rip on whites yet you feel indignant? Hahahaha. Victimization knows no bounds, does it?

And white people totally love sailing. It’s ridiculous.

For Lisa (#2)
It’s spelled “regatta”.

For White? (#7)
David Sedaris is enjoyed by people from TX, CO and in WA. He is hysterically funny and a wonderful writer, and I think you missed the whole point about this website. Which is probably why you think David Sedaris is over most people’s heads.
LIGHTEN UP!

Suggestion: Boston’s It’s More Than A Feeling and Kansas’ “Carry On My Wayward Son”

how spiked belts not one of these . . . i loved spiked belts and im a tall white guy with an 11 in cock

I DONT WANNA HAVE SEX IS MY FAVORITE SONG OF HERS . . . SUCH A GREAT MESSAGE TO THE CHILDREN

Internet Dating
Women’s pro sports
Guitar Hero
Texas Hold ‘Em
Dane Cook
Small Asses
Big Boobs (fake is preferable)
Blonde hair
Martini bars
Going to bookstores for the latte
Self Defense Classes
Dr. Phil
Museums
Darwinism
Agnosticism, until they go to jail or have a sick family member
Killing people in serial
Shooting up high schools and colleges
Abortions

along with experimental bisexuality mentioned in a prior entry, i dare you to tackle- a. open relationships/polyamory and b. the phenomenon known as drunk white chicks.

Also add “Black people wearing glasses.” We white people like this because they appear less intimidating. Not only physically, but also because we know there’s a good chance a black person wearing glasses won’t use slang we have to pretend to understand (which is embarrassing) or a employ a complicated handshake which makes us look like we’re stuttering in sign language (which is really embarrassing).
Unless a black person is wearing glasses AND a bow tie, white shirt and a sport coat. Then we get scared, because they might be like that guy on season 2 of The Wire or Malcom X or something.

on March 5, 2008 at 7:28 pm List of what black people like…

1. Filth
2. Disease
3. Welfare
4. Raping women
5. Fried chicken
6. Malt Liquor
7. Kool-Aid
8. Fried Chicken
9. Blaming whites for their problems
10. TNB
11. Fried chicken
12. Dependency
13. Stealing
14. Murdering
15. Basketball
16. Ignorance
17. Crime
18. “Down low” relationships
19. Ebonics
20. Fried chicken

Great blog! Don’t forget to add Oprah / Dr Phil / self-actualizing pop psychology (or is that just white women!?)

your blog posts are great, but you know what’s better? reading the comments of the people you piss off! i’m gonna be laughing in my sleep! HA!!!

Graphic Novels. Don’t call them comic books.

This graduate school one made me laugh so hard… then I was depressed.

It’s a disease, people.

You’re missing the most obvious number 1! Facial hair! Religiously required facial hair aside (see the Amish, Muslims, orthodox Jews), you don’t see any other race sporting so many variations of facial hair so proudly. Hispanics sometimes rock the ‘stache, but rarely beards or sideburns. Asians sometimes do, but never should, whispy little beards. If you subtract the nation of iIlam you see a few black guys with beards. But among whites facial hair is often sported by bikers, stoners, rockers, COPS, college kids, college professors, old guys, cowboys, etc.

Genius…positively genius.

Just because you happen to know a white person who likes a thing or two on this list… does not mean that the whole white population is into this stuff. I think the list is completely narrow minded. I assume it was put together by a white person who DOES like these things (their personal list of likes). But I personally, don’t know, off hand, too many white people who are into all this stuff. In fact I can count more non-whites that like this stuff than I can count whites. I can’t believe I wasted all this time reading this and its ignorant responses.

Please correct this list to be titled: “Stuff that one white guy likes”.

Maybe I missed it but I scolled quickly through the whole list and I saw people say sandals, flip-flops, etc…. but I didn’t see one of the whitest footwear trends of all time…

CROCS.

Also how about…
-Movies about mobsters or pirates (escapism anyone?)
-Magnetic Ribbons for their automobiles (i.e. I Support the Troops)
-Picking up an accent from somewhere they went on vacation for a week: Southern drawl (Y’all) and British, Irish, Boston (Pissah), Austrailian (G’day mate) accents.
-Bitching about traffic/parking/their jobs.

Some of the ideas above made me laugh my a** off, like “Seeing a movie and then remarking “the book was better”.

substituting characters into typed profanities (ie F***ing or $#it!)
your momma jokes, more recently the trend has been shifting towards “that’s what she said” jokes.
pillows, Who needs 15 pillows of different colors and shapes on their bed?

on March 5, 2008 at 8:58 pm White and Proud

Meth! I don’t think I’ve seen a non-white meth bust on the news ever.

AAA, because white people who drive don’t like having to change their own flat tire, or jump their own car. Additionally, we don’t like calling Tow trucks, triple AAA is much more sophisticated, and while expensive, a seemingly amazing deal.

white people must keep up with the latest obscure bands, but when asked their all-time favorite artists, they must include the Beatles.

you all should do white people like “life coaches” not therapists or psychiatrists, even though they are all the same thing, just different names for them. The new term is life coach.

Am I the only one noticing that this blog would be more correctly labelled “Stuff Democrats like”?? I think someone is a closet, or “in denial”, Republican.

Come on, you chickenshits, put “feminism” on this list. DO IT. I DARE YOU.

Musicians who died too soon.

Bob Marley
Jim Morrison
John Lennon
Elvis Presley
Jeff Buckley
Kurt Cobain
Jimi Hendrix
Janis Joplin

White people can’t get enough of these musicians. Yes, they’re music is great. But they feel that if they like them and can learn every detail of their lives they can bring it up at a party to show their awareness of how tragic it was to lose this person. Example, “Jim Morrison was such an incredible person and his music was so inspirational. It’s a shame that he died so young.” And then everyone else will nod in agreement. Now name more than one song by him.

Reckless feats of wealth and free time (ie: circling the globe in a hot air balloon, yacht races, climbing mountains).

networking websites like facebook, but godforbid not myspace! That’s got too much trashy glittery shit happening.

Yeah, pretty much the people who compiled this list are talking about is hipsters (really neo-hipsters). They probably are asian, true blue collar caucasian or skaters and live in the same areas as these hipsters Which is the emerging, soon to be prevailing paradigm of young whitedom in the US.

I totally feel the

OK, sorry, let me finish. I totally feel the yellow fever thing. I can’t stand that shit! America has an obsession with the exotic

on March 5, 2008 at 11:13 pm Loving this site, loving satire

Right on, Librarians Gone Wild! Too funny!

WHITE PEOPLE ARE FUCKING APE SHIT FOR:

-house, the office, scrubs, arrested development, 24 (shows they look at you crazy for if you dont watch)
-the NEXT BIG THING (be it “going green”, a new apple product, some political movement, etc…)
-sarcasm and witty banter (decorating their myspace profiles so simply and adding lots of ironic crap on it you wonder if theyre actualy like that or just stupid)
-kanye west (oh god, the often name dropped rapper just to add that they have “eclectic” tastes)
-bragging about the books they read (wow, thanks for making me feel dumb. FYI, i read too, thanks…)
-dressing like peggy bundy (this is exclusively for the hipster/scenester set….um not cool)

on March 6, 2008 at 12:20 am I might be white too

White men like firearms, especially black plastic handguns and old military rifles. White women, especially California women, like men who like firearms, but they can’t admit it because it would blow their cover.

on March 6, 2008 at 12:47 am non-whitey living as a whitey in a whitey town

I didn’t want to read all those comments so…Dave Matthews Band. That’s a band with all the diversity and awareness a true white person can handle.

Physiotherapy. For some reason white LOVE to talk about having to go to a “physio” appointment. And when you inevitably ask them “why do you have to go to physio”, the person is now greatly pleased that you asked them this, as now they are able to sound both smart and give the impression they lead very active lifestyles; “Well I was on a 20K jog and I pulled my blah blabbity blah blah” this conversation continues for a long time as both people start talking about injuries, both wanting to sound smart and active.

#100 must be the STUFF WHITE PEOPLE LIKE Blog

#97….I’m not sure that is exclusive to only whites. California arrogance bleeds over to all racial groups. It’s something in the water.

“If we became our own country, we’d still have the 5th largest GNP in the world.’ Please.

Surprised no one has mentioned ‘gated communities’. Maybe that’s too red state.

Add: White or Possession Receivers.

This is akin to “assists.” White people love nothing more than to see Wes Welker, Ed McCaffrey, Brandon Stokley, Drew Bennett, Wayne Chrebet, etc succeed in sports. They like to talk about how these receivers use thier “guile” to run precise routes. Many times these receivers can play the “slot” position. That makes them sort of a running back lite or dump off option while at the same time having the WR title.

Holy Fuck.

Since when did being able to laugh at yourself become a bad thing? Someone earlier said that white people only laugh at this because it’s racist NOT to? WTF kind of logic is that?

Regardless of the colour of your skin, if you can’t recognize a harmless joke for being harmless, you’re a fucking idiot that should be removed from the earth.

There’s a difference between a joke meant to be fun, and a joke meant to hurt.

If there was a similar site to this regarding other races, sure some people might get upset, but if it was done with the same harmless intentions and it was clear that those intentions were harmless humour, I think a lot of you would be surprised to how those other cultures might view such a site.

Stereotypes used for humour = good fun
Stereotypes used to put people down = bad

It’s very simple, if you can’t recognize a harmless joke as a harmless joke as opposed to a racist put down you’re likely among the stupidest people on the planet.

“This has to be one of the most racist things I have read. If this was done for any other race it would be removed and Jesse Jackson would be demanding the people responsible be punished. And most white people have been brainwashed that we are responsible for everything bad in the world, although whites only make up less than 10% of the prison population. Oh yeah, thats our fault too.”

Okay…. so here’s the thing… I’m 1/2 white, 1/2 chinese, but have always identified myself as being more white than chinese just because of my upbringing. I’m culturally more “in touch” with my white side.

BUT, if you look back on history, I’m pretty sure that you can say that white people ARE in fact responsible for more atrocities committed against humanity than other races.

Regarding your comment on prison: If you wanna have a serious conversation about it fine, but you honestly and serioulsy have to be willing to look at history going back to slavery and the civil rights movement (in my opinion). When blacks gained equal rights, they gained nothing else. They were already poor and uneducated. Yes, there have been many individuals that have been able to bust there as 10 times harder than the next guy to break that cycle, but living in a society that was originally set up for whites to benefit the most where a lot of whites still held racist beliefs stacks the deck against a black person.

We all know that crime has nothing to do with race, but socio-economics. For example: why is a rich person going to go rob a convenience store? He’s not, a poor person is. If that poor person happens to be black, so be it… but he’s not robbing the store because he’s black, he’s doing it because he’s poor. And he’s probably poor because he’s undereducated and can’t get a good job. And’s probably undereducated because he didn’t have someone on his ass when he was a kid preaching the importance of education and making sure he did all his homework. And he probably didn’t have someone on his ass about school because there was no positive role model in his home. And why did he have no positive role model? Because the people that should have been his role models had no role models themselves.

People like to say shit like “get over slavery”, and “don’t blame me for stuff that happened hundreds of years ago”. I don’t think that the majority of black people hold the white people of today responsible for slavery, but the effects of it can still be seen all around North America in the fact that prisons are full of black people, and drop out rates in school for black people are skyrocketing, etc.

So, is it YOUR fault that prisons are full of black people? Probably not, but if you look back far enough, there’s definitely a lot of blame that should be shouldered by white society as a whole.

For years we’ve been hearing about nasty white trash people and now it’s great that someone is making fun about the other demographic… the white middle class…. the class of people largely blamed for being the most culturally sterile demographic of our species can be thankful now … someone is giving them character!!!!

White people especially love the white players on sports teams. Especially if the team is predominantly black and the white player is playing a position usually held by black athletes. He doesn’t even have to be one of the 10 best players on the team but he will almost certainly lead the team in jersey sales and get the loudest ovations at home games. White announcers love these players too because they are “gritty” and succeed despite being “less physically gifted”.

CM, exactly. This is my point with “Possession Receivers.” They get credit for “running precise routes” or “being heady or cerebral.”

I’m not white, (nor biracial) and I like 30 items on this list. 🙂

White people like taking nature photos or artsy fartsy pic’s of their children. This is done by using their own cheap digital cameras. They then think they have created THE photographic masterpiece of all time. You know the pictures….foggy morning over the lake…child blowing bubbles in the wind….This is promptly followed by framing them and scattering them about the home. The hope is that people will say “oh, that is beautiful”. At which, the “artist” can reply, “yes, I took it.”

NO, I am not some angry photographer…I have a cheap digital camera and I am a nurse….with photo’s scattered about….

And all this time I thought I was white!! According to this list, I’m hardly white at all…

PS: Who’s Michel Gondry???

I have a lot of liberal white friends who are really into the environment and are really concerned about the affect of global warming on the bees and the bats… especially the bees. So yeah, i think (eco-friendly liberal) white people like being concerned about the affects of global warming on animals that most people consider horrible pests.

Taking scenic pictures(minus human beings, especially their families)

They also like to take close-ups of obscure flowers out in the wild.

Brilliant. May I also suggest summer shares, cal-mex, bikes, Ina Garten, vintage clothing stores, the Museum of Modern Art, and pretending to like classical music.

Here are three things white people like, in order:

i) blogs
ii) self-referentiality
iii) stuffwhitepeoplelike.wordpress.com

i) hating religion
ii) hating ‘racism’
iii) blaming everything on religion or racism.

This is because white people are not racist or religious, and can pretend the world’s problems are the fault of religious racists rather than rich people.

please add ‘acting poor’ to the list.

i was at this dinner the other day and this white guy was so proud about how he was living in a van. although, he clearly didn’t have too. or that guy who decided to be poor for a year. all along he had a credit card in his back pocket

ohh and add

anyway – love the site!

Building million dollar homes and filling them with their old college furniture (because that is all they can afford!)

all evidence points to the fact that white people like making lists. and then commenting on those lists.

Atheism, Horses, Catalogs, Wool Clothing, Log Homes, Car Racks and Cargo Boxes, Subarus

White people like it when other races and nationalities emulate their white fashion sense, hair styles, and speech patterns. They love to see their whiteness mirrored back to them from all around the world. That is why White people love Japan.

Also White people like to pretend they are different from other white people. So while the whole rest of the world can fall under a sterotype for white people, they themselves represent the individual. White people really believe in their heart that all white people do not look the same. They also secretly understand why white people think Asians and Blacks all look alike. Not that they think it, but other white people think black and asians look the same.

White peopple are sometimes lazy and don’t like to read all effing 504 effing comments…

Has anyone suggested Lighthouses yet?

Cuz they are soooo white it hurts. In the entire history of the world, there has NEVER been a “person of color” allowed near a lighthouse. AFAIK. Blue hair does NOT count as a “person of color”.

White people are really loving Quinoa and Flax right now.

Reporting from the front lines,
Molly

I dug this site so much I linked to it from my blog.
There are a couple of additions that could be considered:

1. Quarterbacks
2. Outdoor music festivals
3. Garlic
4. Large hemp necklaces
5. Dreadlocks
6. Aging rockers
7. Bumper stickers
8. Adult Swim
9. 80s cartoons
10. Chris Farley

i did not read all the comments, did anyone mention food network? home re-modeling/improvement shows?

SWEDISH FISH.

Just put out a bowl at your next party. It’s like a fly trap for white people. A delicious, red fly trap.

OMG, I must be white! This is the funniest thing I have come across in a long time. Thanks for the laughs!

Black men do not use umbrellas, for some reason. Observe next time it rains…MAYBE they will use one if caught in a downpour, but the majority of them do not even carry them.

This blog is cool! I once was the only black person/woman on a staff of 300+ white men and women. At first, ALL THE WHITE MEN LOOKED THE SAME TO ME. I thought how on earth am I going to be able to tell the difference/learn their names? But as time went by, everyone’s individuality came to the surface. Then, one day, all of the sudden, I could tell them apart. It’s like looking at one of those “illusion pictures” where you have to look at it a certain way to see the hidden image. Deep!

Leaving the blinds or curtans on your windows open so everyone can see inside your house.

This has to be the biggest sterotype ever, I’m white and I don’t even like most of this stuff…….and btw not all white people are rich

Some people on here definitely need to lighten up. Have we really become so PC that white people can’t make fun of white people? That should be added though. White people love being PC. A lot of this list applies to me though and it is hilarious and keep it up. Suggestions.

Will Smith – has to be added, much more than mos def

Acoustic guitar – 1 out of every 2 white men can play “tears in heaven” or “Your body is a wonderland” (the panty-droppers)

White women love having a gay male best friend

White people love owning outdoor gear they never use (i.e. mountain bikes, backpacks, kayaks, etc). This way other white people think they are healthy while they feel better about themselves without having to actually do anything.

Ways to pretend to do things people used to go actually do. (i.e. guitar hero, wii tennis, madden) Learning these is much easier than actually learning these things.

I’d like to see Chuck Norris on the list, I think he deserves a spot well before Obama

I also think winter sports or skiing/snowboarding or something of the sort should be on the list. I’ve never seen anyone but white people compete in the winter olympics

this site basically outlines popular culture…not things white people like… are you kidding me – it’s pretty ridiculous. I can’t even believe that i sat here and read half of it and then felt compelled to post a comment.

This list sucks and just about everything on here is wrong…….you can tell a liberal wrote it

As someone with a White mother and Black father, I have struggled my entire life to determine which group I really belong to. But I love everything on this list. So, clearly, I am a White person. Thank you — this list has changed my life!

You are the man . . . but I’m the man times 1 billion.

Wanna know why?

Because . . . when I call 1-900 numbers, I don’t get charged. I hold up the phone and money falls out.

Because . . . when I was denied an Egg McMuffin at McDonald’s because it was 10:35, I roundhouse kicked the store so hard it became a Wendy’s.

Because . . . I don’t actually write books, the words assemble themselves out of fear.

And because . . . I grind my coffee with my teeth and boil the water with my own rage.

How about whistling. This is a lost art of white people as they are getting worse and worse at doing it. But how excited did I get when I heard Andrew Bird whistling like a canary on his record….tickled.

Missing: Sad movies about slavery, diamond mines, or apartheid could go on there. Maybe that could be a note under “assists” for those of us who aren’t very good at sports.

Great list. It’s definitely more of a “WWP From California Like”, but there are lots of matches for us East Coast tan-challenged as well.

Keep it real, (I LOVE talking like that!)

@ #463 – EXACTLY! As I read the list, I immediately thought that it described every single person in Portland, OR, riding their bikes to work and shopping at Whole Foods, it is like a snapshot of the Pearl District!

Things Black People like:

Wearing their pants around their knees, causing them to waddle. Not only that, but they wear belts to keep their pants in a certain position.

Wearing what every other black person wears including hats with the sticker still on. They are just as trendy as shallow white people.

Taking pride in ignorance, and accusing a teacher of using “big words” when said teacher uses a word like “sophisticated”

They drink malt liquor and orange juice.

They eat chicken and water melon.

Etc.

In other words, this blog takes the actions of some people, and pin it on an entire race. There is a word for it, I forget what it is………

This site is more like, ‘what middle- class, educated Anglo-Saxon Americans’ like. I don’t think you can extend this list to white people in Australia, Canada, France, New Zealand, England, Ireland, Italy and so on…it’s so US-centric, and US white people don’t speak for the rest of the white world.

Only an American would bother creating a site like this because the country is so obsessed with race and what it ‘means’ to be white or black.

It’s nice that you can laugh at yourself but it’s pretty sad that you actually think the colour of your skin determines your likes and behaviours.

This is the funniest blog I’ve read in quite some time. ‘Tis a pity that some readers take it seriously instead of considering the social commentary. I suspect that these are the white people who have not yet acquired their MBAs.

As for myself, I abandoned being a white person some time ago and decided to go live among the Inuit. It has been a welcome change with the exception that at times I’m forced to travel all the way to Fairbanks to find a decent wi-fi connection for my MacBook.

I am going to have to say, that post by 533, “Andrew Bird” is something that should be in the list. Not the whistling, but the fact that he said “how excited did I get when I heard Andrew Bird whistling like a canary on his record….tickled”

Also, grammar police should be on the list.

Next, collectible “toys” like Smorkin Labbits and other “figures” that can be bought at Concept stores like http://www.magic-pony.com/

Or retro toys like He-Man, Black Star, WWF wrestlers (obviously for irony).

Camper or John Fluevog Shoes.

Asymmetrical clothing.

Castro-style military hats. Or hats in general.

Scarves, especially the kind that are loosely draped around the neck so that they look like a bib.

Wearing the Shemagh is particularly hilarious, because the people wearing it apparently don’t realise it’s a way of showing support for Palestinian solidarity. Of course, since white people love causes, maybe they do know this, and it’s just a funny coincidence that this is a hot fashion craze. I’m all for Palestinian empowerment, but not at the cost of lives, and bad leadership (Israel has, in the past, offered to settle on 90% of the demands made by Arafat, and, being a dick, he refused to compromise and left the Palestinian people in the gridlock they continue to try and extract themselves from).

#502 White people like it when other races and nationalities emulate their white fashion sense, hair styles, and speech patterns. They love to see their whiteness mirrored back to them from all around the world. That is why White people love Japan.

Great observation!

Yea these are definitely racism, but for some reason it is acceptable……

The authors of this website still have asian parents who like to micromanage/ruin their lives. Have fun with that, hahahaah.

Hmmm. Some people here seem a little… well… annoyed at the authors approach.

I guess they’ve never heard Chris Rock talk about black people.

Don’t take it so seriously. It’s just humor.

-Law school
-Crocs
-NPR
-The New Yorker/Atlantic Monthly
-“Backpacking across Europe” when really it means carrying shit in a backpack and staying in hostels instead of putting shit in a luggage. NOT *real* backpacking
-American Apparel
-Tanning beds
-Anything with the words “eco” “organic” “sustainable”
-Yoga/Pilates

Im black and i enjoy whole foods, netflix, and many other white activities including my yuppie ass neighborhood and walking in the park…whats happening to me?

this site is kinda funny at first until you realize you could put anything on here and it would apply to at least some group of white people somewhere.

Civil War re-enactors. Or Revolutionary War, WW1, WW2, etc.

White people love this because it gives them a sense of pride in themselves regarding their supposed heritage.

dont panic… but you’re turning white. you should start sprouting blonde hair some time soon. but it’s not so bad. think of all the new hobbies you can take up and it’ll be much easier to get a cab in NYC.

All this shit is what yuppies like, regardless of race. This is in no way about white people in America, this is hipsters in big cities. A snooty white fuck is the only person who would put this much energy into hating themselves.

All my life I work hard at being open minded, respecting others ways of life, knowing about the world, really delving into the arts, and caring, truly caring about other religions, ways of life, and cultures. This blog is another way to move us all backward.

Even though it’s kind of an outdated reference but is still probably being played in a basement somewhere in the U.S.,

Dungeons and Dragons.

Ummm… I think the most important thing of all is our love of Flip Flops!!!!! Snow, Rain, Sun, Hurricane…. no matter the weather flip flops will be worn.

If you notice, most of the things on this list require money to do/own, or higher education to understand/enjoy. So what you are saying is…. there is a higher statistic of white people having more money and being better educated then minorities?!?!*GASP* NO WAY!!!!
I for one…am shocked by this revolation.

Some of the people who have commented have mentioned that most of the references apply to various white people in the U.S. and not so much to white people in other countries.

So here is one that I would say is primarily something that white people in Germany like more so than in the U.S.,

David Hasselhoff.

White people like Moleskine notebooks, chap stick, gourmet chocolates, and gas log fireplaces.

To #530, why does this list suck…should we have included white sheets and swastikas?

I love my liberalism.

some people are taking this site waaayyy to seriously!!! this site is f**king hilarious!

Very Funny. I love sharing this with my white friends (having more than one is important – you learn more from them this way) I love this blog. Keep up the funny work.

This site is great and hilarious. Its not exactly about liberal, or conservatives, or even white kids, its about yuppies. Its about the educated, relatively wealthy kids that live in gentrified urban environments. I have many non-white friends that could check off most of the things on this list, but I recognize its funnier to be racialist and call the blog stuff that white people like. The only problem is that some people have no sense of humor and think this website gives proper justification to make strange racist comments about blacks liking rape, while others try to add red state, lower class fancies to this list.

British actors. Whites are in awe of them. They can do the shittiest job but they will still win the Oscars.
