    soooooo many of my friends from my snooty undergrad alma mater and grad school here fit the site's description to a T...

    incidentally the description of white peoples' love for fixies (somewhere around entry 65 iirc) is great. :D

    here we go, entry 61:

    the site's message isn't that, but rather finding humor in the way that post-college overeducated liberal types (that'd be me and my friends, except i'm not white) scramble to conform to a particular social role

    I thought a lot about this, and this reminds me of a statement I made, "I have never seen a black woman on a serious bike ride".

    Without debating about my conclusions or the racism of my statement, because I am sure there are black female cyclists, I do wonder if minorities don't get out and participate in certain leisure activities.

    Possibly they come from a culture of seriousness which prevents them from enjoying what they consider frivolous.

    Speaking for Chinese, sometimes, I think they are missing out.

    I thought white people liked rap music and FUBU clothes. Go figure. How many black people have Billy Ray Cyrus collections and wear parkas?

    "For the past three years, whenever you say “The Wire” white people are required to respond by saying “it’s the best show on television.” Try it the next time you see a white person! Though now they might say “it WAS the best show on television.”

    so guilty of this.:busted:

    I have never had more fun laughing at myself than reading this blog.
    I am either guilty of doing them or I make fun of people who are guilty for doing them.

    I thought it was interesting that Asian men are more likely to identify their race, like Korean or Japanese, whereas Asian women don't.
