White Like Me

In the last 10 or 20 years there has been a shift in the minority community from focusing on ways in which we are all similar, to the ways that we are uniquely and beautifully distinct.

When I was first made aware of this, I had to ask the question, does this apply to me, a white male as well? Do I get to celebrate my whiteness or maleness? And does even asking this cause people to question my commitment to social justice and breaking down stereotypes?

Some people may have a problem with those questions, but they shouldn't, and good news, there is a blog that celebrates that fact called Stuff White People Like. Apparently it has skyrocketed in popularity, only being created in the last year or so.
