Stuff White People Like

This is a well done anthropological perspective on modern white Americans, and as such I found it both entertaining and uncomfortable to read. It's good, it's really good, and it helps to have a perspective analyzing "white" as "other", since assuming white is the default is a fundamental problem in understanding modern racism.

The series is up to 73 posts, ranging from absurd cultural phenomena, detailed popular yet seemingly hypocritical attitudes, and the wonderfully blunt. I recommend reading all of it, but as that's a bit intense, skimming may be advisable.
