What do White People Like?

I just came across this weird-but-amusing blog, that's called "Stuff White People Like".

The "About" section of the blog states that "This is a scientific approach to highlight and explain stuff white people like. They are pretty predictable".

I am guessing this is some sort of satire or an attempt at education. If you take everything that's written there, and instead of "white people", write "black people", the content would be considered highly racist.

As it is now, the posts look as if they only BORDER racism.

In very detailed posts, the author lists what he thinks white people enjoy, and why. For example - Expensive Sandwiches: "In most cities, if you need to find a cache of white people get yourself to a sandwich shop. Generally these places aren’t open for dinner, have a panini press and are famous for their bread. There are always vegan options and the selection of meats and cheese are strongly European".

The blog also lists bicycle, Prius, natural medicine, lawyers and kitchen gadgets, as stuff white people enjoy.

The comments are varied, and it seems every person sees the blog differently. Some see it as a hate site, and others seem to get the joke. A lot of angry curses and annoyed people, as well, giving the author the attention he naturally seeks.
