Stuff White People Like
I have a friend who likes to send me links from StuffWhitePeopleLike.com. I click and read out of duty. Occasionally, I will laugh. But this morning, after skimming the Full List of Things White People Like, I became curious about Christian Lander’s statistical source. I mean, who’s to say that the majority of white people in America like “assists”? After all, every white kid I knew growing up wanted to dunk! What white kids really like is “dunking”; they settle for passing to get into the NBA!
Among the morass of trivia, I found this piece of wisdom. Especially appropriate given all the bloggers who try to attract big hits by giving stuff away or overstating thier case:
Any advice for people who want to be internet famous?
Don’t try. People can smell desperation, you have to create something that you like and you honestly cannot set out hoping for success – it’s your first step to failure.
So, I overturned a bit of wisdom, which was a good reminder for me. However, no statistical source found, yet Landers claims scientific authority:“This is a scientific approach to highlight and explain stuff white people like.” Perhaps yet another comedic jab at the white hunger for statistics? If not, feel free to fill me in!
