    Let me preface this by saying I do not think this blog is racist at all. In fact its is mere satire that over generalizes and in doing so, sheds some light on the eccentric-ness of human behavior.

    White people are the last group I would worry about offending with stereotypes, 99.9% of them will more likely laugh at it than attribute it to racism.

    That site is hilarious btw.

    While good satire, here in the US (since we have many members from around the world here) there would be a storm of controversy if one did a blog of what black people like...

    The post woulda been deleted and the OP woulda been suspended for a few days for direct offense to black people.

    Depends who made the blog, if a white person made the blog it would be racist, if minority, probably not. If black person made white blog it would be okay though and white people would still laugh at themselves.

    Windows users NEED to blast Macs because they have an inferiority complex?

    :)

    In reality, I think it's only the hardcore that get their panties all in a twist. Windows or Mac, they both have their pros and cons.

    One does exist. It's not quite as funny as "Stuff White People Like" but it's there.

    40's and popeye's?


    This article naturally assumes that white people are educated. But, funny someone needs to add the word "educated" in front of black, to differentiate said person from, just, "black" people. Interesting indeed.

    How can anyone not understand the black man's love for both fried chicken and watermelon? That stuff is delicious.

    I do have to say soul food is delicious, even though I personally don't like watermelon. Greens with macaroni and cheese make an amazing lunch.

    And I wasted a good two hours at work reading that blog. :D I have to admit, I like a frightening number of white things. But at least I can claim I'm just undercover behind enemy lines. :p

    I don't know if I want to laugh or cry over this blog. :rolleyes:

    By the way, I'm a big fan of watermelons. As soon as good quality watermelons become available in my area during the summer I buy one and eat it to cool off from the 36+ degrees Celsius days I get in my area.

    I found it funny, and it takes a lot to offend me. People who get offended easily need to lighten up.

    It is a great book. I've managed to keep hold of a copy from the library.
