White people are all alike

comment

If you haven't made your way over to "Stuff White People Like" yet, you're really missing out. This is an obsessive mission to catalog everything that, well, white people really latch onto, then analyze exactly why it registers with the caucasian persuasion.

Things that white people like have included: Threatening to move to Canada, Gentrification, Barack Obama, microbreweries, coffee (the #1 Thing) and, of course, The Wire. A sampling:

If you need to impress a white person, tell them you are from Baltimore. They will immediately ask you about The Wire and how accurate it is. You should confirm that it is â??like a documentary of the streets,â?� the white person will then slowly shake their head and say â??manâ?� or â??wow.â?� You will be seen in an entirely new light.
