Been meaning to read this for a long time, and I'm glad I finally got it. Probably less funny to those who it pokes fun at, but I think that underneath all the stereotypes it lets us white people realize how silly we are for doing some of the things we do. Lander never says that people are bad for liking these things, rather a little overenthusiastic perhaps.

I liked reading through it and trying to place people I knew who fit into the different things. Obviously every white person doesn't like all 150 things, but 9 times out of 10 when I thought of a person that fit that section, they were white (maybe I don't have diverse enough friends...).

Anyway, fun read and not to be taken very seriously. For the curious I am apparently only 17% white.
