Stuff White People Like

This is a really funny website. According to the makers, "This is a scientific approach to highlight and explain stuff white people like. They are pretty predictable."

So, what are some of the things white people like?

• sushi
• farmer's markets
• dogs
• children's games as adults
• dinner parties
• Toyota Prius
• 80s night
• religions their parents don't belong to
• Microbreweries
• non-profit organizations
• self-aware hip-hop references
• being an expert on YOUR culture
• having two last names
• wine
• coffee
• writers workshops

For the full list and explanations, check out the website!

What would you add to the list? What other stuff do white people like?

Oh, and for all the defensive white folks out there, have a sense of humor, already. Sheesh.

Pass it along...

(Thanks to Winston Scarlett, who checks in on Freedom Road from Middletown, New York, for reminding me recently of this website. Check out Winston's blog, This Modern Love.)


  1. Progressive political blogs.

  2. Hi Anonymous. Still scared to post as yourself, huh?

    Funny how it is usually the posts about whiteness that bring you out in the open...

    ... your point this time is?

  3. I think s/he is just answering the question, "What other things do white people like?" SWPL does make fun of white (faux?) liberals quite a bit.

  4. ah-ha! I get it! Dummy that I am...
