Stuff White People Like
Esse blog que um sucesso quase fenomenal (um mes apos ser criado ele tinha 30 mil visitas/dia!) faz uma critica social bem humorada do estilo de vida Norte Americano!
É divertido e inteligente, a abordagem entre o academico e o jornalistico. Rir de si mesmo agrada os do seu partido e os da oposicao!
"As 2007’s Indie hit, it is alternative mainstream and white people love it when low budget movies do well, even though the $7 million budget is enough to feed thousands of villages in East Africa for a year,'' according to the Stuff White People Like blog. "White people, especially ones over 30, also love movies that take them back to a time when there was zero hip hop influence in white high schools.''
"Beginning in their late teens, white people begin an obsession with finding cool vintage clothing at local thrift shops and Goodwills ... As white people get older, and the opportunities to wear a 'Pittsburgh Special Olympics' T-shirt diminish, they must move their vintage fetish from clothes to furniture and knick knacks," according to Stuff White People Like.
Social Networking sites
Social Networking sites have been embraced by white people since their inception. Because these sites use profile pages, white people can more efficiently judge friends and future friends on their taste in film, books, music, and inspirational quotes. Advanced level white people, fearful of being judged on their tastes from last week, will often only list one or two ironic things as their favorites. For example under music they would simply list “P.M. Dawn” or under films they would choose only Armageddon. In both cases these ironic answers serve as protective shields from the harsh gaze of other white people.
Because white people are afraid that if they don’t like him that they will be called racist.
If you want to understand white people, you need to understand indie music. As mentioned before, white people hate anything that’s “mainstream” and are desperate to find things that are more genuine, unique, and reflective of their experiences.
Fortunately, they have independent music.
#62 Knowing what's best for poor people.
White people spend a lot of time of worrying about poor people. It takes up a pretty significant portion of their day.
They feel guilty and sad that poor people shop at Wal*Mart instead of Whole Foods, that they vote Republican instead of Democratic, that they go to Community College/get a job instead of studying art at a University.
It is a poorly guarded secret that, deep down, white people believe if given money and education that all poor people would be EXACTLY like them. In fact, the only reason that poor people make the choices they do is because they have not been given the means to make the right choices and care about the right things.
A great way to make white people feel good is to tell them about situations where poor people changed how they were doing things because they were given the ‘whiter’ option. “Back in my old town, people used to shop at Wal*Mart and then this non-profit organization came in and set up a special farmers co-op so that we could buy more local produce, and within two weeks the Wal*Mart shut down and we elected our first Democratic representative in 40 years.” White people will first ask which non-profit and are they hiring? After that, they will be filled with euphoria and will invite you to more parties to tell this story to their friends, so that they can feel great.
But it is ESSENTIAL that you reassert that poor people do not make decisions based on free will. That news could crush white people and their hope for the future.
