Stuff a Brown Girl Likes: Stuff White People Like

Is it just me, or has anyone else caught onto this phenomena?! Why aren't more people talking about this around the water cooler?! Somebody please explain this to me.

I mean, I know that there are people out there that have heard about it...more than 300,000 daily hits and more than 40 million over-all hits attest to its I realize that maybe just a tad few folk have caught on.

But if you aren't one amongst the above listed data, I s
trongly encourage you to check out the geniousness (is that even a word?) of....

Stuff White People Like

It's a blog started by Canadian, Christian Lander...who happens to be white, and coauthored by his Filipino friend, Myles Valentin...who happens not to be white.

The blog, which launched just a year ago, attempts to chronicle - in almost a time-capsule fashion - what makes the affluent, wel
l-educated - (particularly in the liberal arts), left-wing (e.g. environmentally conscious, anti-corporate), and/or hipster white North Americans - tick.

Here's a complete list of the Stuff White People Like.

It's absolutely brilliant.

Needless to say, Lander has capitalized on his fame and success, turning his blogtastic musings into a neatly-published book and is currently on tour promoting it. (Lander why no love for the Cintucky?! There are tons of white people...and the people that love!)

In any event, if you want a good, yet surprisingly educational blog surf, then head to the site. I bet even if you are a white person, you'll learn something.

This brown girl sure did.

He's kinda cute, in a geeky sorta way...for a white boy.
