Actually the blog is called “Stuff White People Like” but it’s not a stretch to see the connection to liberalism, or the more modern euphemism, “progressive”. I have been enjoying this blog for a couple of weeks, I almost feel guilty about sharing it lest my enjoyment diminish due to the fact that more people are reading it.
You will need to prepare yourself before clicking on the link. Put down any liquids you may be holding.
An interesting fact about white people is that they firmly believe that all of the world’s problems can be solved through “awareness.” Meaning the process of making other people aware of problems, and then magically someone else like the government will fix it.
This belief allows them to feel that sweet self-satisfaction without actually having to solve anything or face any difficult challenges. Because, the only challenge of raising awareness is people not being aware. In a worst case scenario, if you fail someone doesn’t know about the problem. End of story.
UPDATE: Bonus! Check out this story on a protest here in SF:
Abraham Thompson, an organizer of the San Francisco protest, said he thought the low turnout was due to a lack of public awareness of torture and human-rights abuses in China. One participant said the 6-kilometer run may have limited participation mostly to the physically fit.
