Whiter Shades of Pale: The Stuff White People Like, Coast to Coast, from Seattle's Sweaters to Maine's Microbrews

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.
Whether you’re at your local fair trade coffee shop, taking a leisurely spin in the Prius, or waiting in line for your favorite food truck, what better way to people watch than by playing a round of White Person Bingo? Test your observational chops with these icons of the Caucasian persuasion. If playing with friends, the first person to circle ten wins a year’s supply of hummus and fifteen seconds of self-satisfaction. w h i t e large water bottle, preferably stickered ironic tattoo peacoat overheard conversation about losing weight political T-shirt any Malcolm Gladwell book BANGS cuffed jeans smallbatch soda chunky sweater offended expression a copy of The Onion (or other alternative weekly) product made by someone named Tom megapram deep-neck V hand sanitizer yoga mat GREG MORTIMER canvas tote Ray-Bans keys hooked to belt loop expensive male haircut b i n g o stuffwhitepeoplelike.com White Person Bingo is brought to you by Random House Trade Paperbacks, publishers of the bestselling book Stuff White People Like and its new sequel, Whiter Shades of Pale, on sale everywhere November 23rd, 2010.
