Blog About White People Causing Stir

As the blog Stuff White People Like gets increasingly popular, it's also fielding more criticism. Some people are less than enthused about being linked to characterizations based on race.


Some speculate that the site's popularity is a reflection of America's obsession with race. I tend to think that most people are narcissistic and love hearing accurate descriptions of their lives repeated in a funny way. Example:

Though many would have you believe that white people come of age at Summer Camp, it’s simply not the truth. Immediately following graduation but prior to renovating a house, white people take their first step from childhood to maturity by hosting a successful dinner party.

Race has always been a controversial, and successful source of comedy. Are you offended or amused by a blog that finds humor by making generalizations about "white people"?

P.S. Have some more controversy with your Friday happy hour — check out White Whine.
