ATN (The Assimilated Negro) has a good interview of the blog proprietor, Christian Lander.
The LA Times says of the blog:
Lander is doing to whites what scores of journalists and politicians do to non-white minorities every day, “essentializing” complex identities — that is, stripping away all variety and reducing them to their presumed authentic essences.
…Lander is gently making fun of the many progressive, educated, upper-middle-class whites who think they are beyond ethnicity or collectively shared tastes, styles or outlook. He’s essentially reminding them that they too are part of a group.
“I’m writing about the white people who think they’re absolutely unique and individual,” Lander told me. “I’m calling them out and poking fun of myself. The things I post are all the things I like too!”
One of the reasons I feel compelled to write about this is the reality in our culture that hip turns to stupid very, quickly. There is a short shelf life on hip. But, I do think there isn’t enough that can be written or promoted that invites people of privilege to look at themselves and laugh at themselves. Domination is un-funny and lest white people forget, domination is how most of the goodies came to the white man. Just sayin’ . . .
