Wow, Nobody Saw That Coming . . .

March 27, 2008

First:

“I predict there’s a book deal evolving out of this . . .”

Then:

The author of Stuffwhitepeoplelike has his “whiteness studies” jargon down pat, but the thing about whiteness studies is that it exists to dismantle white supremacy (or at least purports to). In contrast, Stuffwhitepeoplelike in the main seems to exist to display the author’s erudition and self-regard. (Is a trade paperback book deal far behind? Will Racialious blurb the back cover? ” A hilarious, satirical Wikipedia-esque guide to exactly what the title says, filled with dead-on observations that make you laugh in surprise and recognition?”)

Now:

“Our research has slowed in recent weeks as we worked out the details, but Stuff White People Like are proud to announce that our textbook on white people is becoming a reality.”

    I think the book will be a huge failure. That site is funny in the sense that I was wearing some high performance outdoor wear while listening to Mos Def the first time I saw it, but I would never buy the book.

    Maybe they should write a chapter on how white people like empty praise and will heap it on something in the moment; though it is an affection that doesn’t last.

    Sadly, this will end up on Good Morning America around Christmas time and some Aunt or Uncle will think it is a great gift idea.

    I do trust all the ideas you have offered to your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for newbies. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
