Stuff White People Do

While not as humorous as "Stuff White People Like", "Stuff White People Do" is a great blog that does the more uncomfortable part about seeking out white behaviors that white people are generally unaware, and the discussion of which makes them uncomfortable. Some of it is in jest (and when it is, it's obvious), but the majority of it is really good, uncomfortable to read stuff. If you're like me and a glutton for this sort of stuff, I recommend starting with either this post (fail to see institutional racism), or this one (think black people are wasting a wealth of opportunities). It's all very good, and while it isn't perfect, it's a fantastic attempt to keep the dialog going, and the writer has shown a lot of improvement since I first checked on the blog several months ago. Give it a shot.
