Stuff white people like

Stuff white people like: #101 -Being Offended

Excerpt:

To be offended is usually a rather unpleasant experience, one that can expose a person to intolerance, cultural misunderstandings, and even evoke the scars of the past. This is such an unpleasant experience that many people develop a thick skin and try to only be offended in the most egregious and awful situations. In many circumstances, they can allow smaller offenses to slip by as fighting them is a waste of time and energy. But white people, blessed with both time and energy, are not these kind of people. In fact there are few things white people love more than being offended.

Oh bother. I should have searched first! *sigh*
I thought I was having deja vu.

We've done this thread before.

I'm "TechKnockout" now.
Nazi? Nazi? Nah. I remember reading something about how white people like to kiss their dogs. I have to agree, I do. My friend, who is an AA male, thought I was disgusting for kissing my canine child. However, I saw on tv a young AA man who kissed a dog! A-ha! White people aren't the only crazy ones. muahahahaha
That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

I don't really think it's fair to stereotype ANY race. Also, after reading the list, I'm wonderign if I am even white... b/c not very many items on it fit my life....

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
You know, the white nazis..... who are crazy for getting offended at a thread that is talking crap about an entire race of people by stereotyping them...

I think it is funny because my white friends, who are the above, do that. They think it is funny because they never realized they did those things but they do! Some of the things generic yuppie things so I find myself laughing at my own behavior.

I heard there was a black "sister site." Has anyone seen that?

but they forgot the electric slide!!! LOL.

Didn't we have corresponding "white stuff people like" and "black stuff people like" threads?

Those were fun.
Maybe it is where I am from...a rural community. I think I can relate more to the "stuff black people like" (the second link) than the white people link one. The more I think about it, the more I agree that it fits "yuppies" better than just white folks in general.
