White People Like Stuff White People Like.

StuffWhitePeopleLike, simultaneously hilarious and problematic, has really blown up in the month or so it’s been in existence — 4 million hits. Best entries: Standing Still at Concerts, Expensive Sandwiches, Mos Def.

Last week, the blog’s mastermind popped up on NPR’s Talk of the Nation, and he said the site was born in a conversation about The Wire. (Yeah, we made yet another Wire reference. What of it?) One of the callers said blogging was definitely stuff white people like. Hmph.



Gene "G.D." Demby is the founder and editor of PostBourgie. In his day job, he blogs and reports on race and ethnicity for NPR's Code Switch team.
  • I thought of you when I read that Mos Def post. Did you read the interview with the creator on The Assimilated Negro?

    I think it’s a clever blog, and mostly harmless. Why do you think it’s problematic?

    I think it’s hilarious, but how much stuff can the author write about?

    Hmph indeed. When I first stumbled onto that blog, I too found it (un-problematically) hilarious. Then, the creator used the term “wigger” during the aforementioned Assimilated Negro interview, and my eyebrow shot straight up.

    I like a lot of white people stuff, lol.

  • THe expensive sandwiches is what got me. That always killed me that whereever I work there’s always these $8-9 sandwiches that people are happily paying for. It was a rude awakeing after going to college in Philly and paying for a stacked $5 Hoagie
