10 Things White People Like

from the Boston Globe’s story which highlights the work of the blog 10 Things White People Like. YES, this is meant in good fun.57. Juno
“As 2007s 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.”

1. Coffee
“There is no doubt that white people love coffee. Yes, its true that Asians like iced coffee and people of all races enjoy it. But I promise you that the first person at your school to drink coffee was a white person. You could kind of tell they didnt enjoy it, but they did it anyways until they liked it, like cigarettes,” the blog says.

60. the Toyota Prius
“Over the years, white people have gone through a number of official cars. In the 1980s it was the Saab and the Volvo. By the 1990s it was the Volkswagen Jetta or a Subaru 4WD station wagon. But these days, there is only one car for white people. One car that defines all that they love: the Toyota Prius,” according to Stuff White People Like.

15. Yoga
“Although its origins are from India, one can find more yoga studios in white neighbourhoods such as Kitsilano or Orange County than in Kolkata. Participation in this activity requires large amounts of money and time, both of which white people have a lot of,” according to the blog.

63. Expensive Sandwiches
‘Remember that whenever a white person says they wants to go to a sandwich shop you are looking at at least a $15 outlay after tip and drink, $20 if the place has a good selection of microbrews. Also note: white people will wait up to 40 minutes for a good sandwich,’ according to the blog.

80. the idea of soccer
‘Many white people will tell you that they are very into soccer. But be careful, itss a trap. If you then attempt to engage them about your favorite soccer team or talk about famous moments in soccer history, you are likely to be met with blank stares. This is because white people dont actually enjoy watching soccer, they just like telling their friends that they are into it,’ according to the blog.

49. Vintage
‘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.

4. Assists
“When you say the word ‘assist,’ first thing you think about is Steve Nash and Wayne Gretzky. White people love to pass, it%u2019s no secret. In basketball, it%u2019s kind of a must so that white guys can carve out a niche and guarantee acceptance on a team,’ the blog says.

79. Modern furniture
“When white people envision their dream home, a key part of the fantasy involves at least one piece of furniture designed by a famous architect from the 1930s. But as with all things, white people will do whatever it takes to secure authenticity including paying thousands of dollars for a small piece of furniture,” according to Stuff White People Like.

91. San Francisco
“San Francisco is one of the top US destinations for white people in terms of both travel and living. It is universally agreeable and is a safe discussion topic for any situation. The city is considered one of the world%u2019s premiere locations for white person research,” according to Stuff White People Like.
