Other Stuff White People Like

So we know that white people like t-shirts, at least they do according to the blog Stuff White People Like (stuffwhitepeoplelike.com) but what else do they like?

According to a recent post, white people like picking their own fruit. “When white people think about growing their own food they are reminded of pastoral images of farming, working the land…the most positive viewpoint comes from the fact that white people have mostly enjoyed supervisory roles in agricultural production over the years,” philosophizes the blog.

Something else favored by white people? Funny or ironic tattoos. “A white person getting a tattoo is a major step in their life as it presupposes that their taste at this given moment is good enough to sustain them for the rest of their lives.” Of course, the blog specifies which types of tattoos are in favor—nothing with an American flag, no tribal armbands, and nothing that references military service. But something witty like an Asian character that says “dim sum” is definitely on the yes list.

And the creative accessory that every white person with creative aspirations or pretensions is jonesing for? Moleskine notebooks. The blog makes the point that white people tend to favor anything they think that old writers and artists used and preferred. The moleskine notebook is expensive and indicates a predilection for creativity and deep thoughts.

Lastly, we’ve all done it. The final thing that white people like is threatening to move to Canada. “Whenever they are presented with a situation that seems unreasonable to them, their first instinct is to threaten to move to Canada,” says the blog. Frustration with the president, Congress, or the illegal status of marijuana are listed as among the reasons a white person might elect to move to Canada.
