Book Summary

HOW WHITE YOU ARE!
 
If you thought you had white people pegged as Oscar-party-throwing, Prius-driving, Sunday New York Times–reading, self-satisfied latte lovers—you were right. But if you thought diversity was just for other races, then hang on to your eco-friendly tote bags. Veteran white person Christian Lander is back with fascinating new information and advice on dealing with the Caucasian population.

Sure, their indie-band T-shirts, trendy politics, vegan diets, and pop-culture references make them all seem the same. But a closer look reveals that from Austin to Australia, from L.A. to the U.K., indigenous white people are as different from one another as 1 percent rBGH-free milk is different from 2 percent. Where do skinny jeans and bulky sweaters rule? Where is down-market beer the nectar of the hip? If you want to know the places cute girls with bangs and cool guys with beards roam and emo musicians and unpaid interns call home, you’d better switch off the Adult Swim reruns, put down that copy of The Onion, pick up this book, and prepare to see the white.

    It's a funny and irreverent take on the Caucasian race across the world with special love for those in the US. Having only peripherally known many people from the group over the years, I am not sure how accurate these ribs are and I am not sure if I want to use these portrayals as a reference point. Liked it as a light weight read.

    Christian Lander's second book continues to poke fun at white culture, this time using geographic locations of whiteness including Seattle, New York and even Madison. Some of the entries make you cringe because you recognize these as things that others do and may annoy you. Other times, you find yourself acknowledging that yes, you too are a member of the white culture.
    I had the opportunity to meet Christian at a reading in Madison where he pointed out all of the whiteness of the city with metaphorical wink and nod.
