hmm, some of it is funny but after a few 'white people' just becomes more and more tedious to read.

It's funny cause it's true.


The Doga classes are a sad state of affairs.

Do you think they will bring a book out called "What black people like" which also mocks black culture?

I wonder what would be included?

Eh. It's a certain type of white people. Think New Labour/Blairites living in Islington.

It's funny because it does hit a certain chord, mocking a certain class of politically liberal, socially conscious white people in a way they're not accustomed.

I suggest reading the anthropological genius of Kate Fox - 'Watching the english' useful guide for any expat going to the UK.


Its quite natural for us to get defensive when folks tell us the 'truth' about ourself.

Interesting work!

What a boring book - it's not even that funny?! I quite like the Brit-think, Ameri-think series though - they can be hilarious.

Seven seas: what are you on about? Why is it uncomfortable?! Do you like wearing Ed Hardy clothing?

I think it's a bit boring and time consuming. If it's an attempt to mock politically liberal. socially conscious white people they would be better off mocking how they like to get offended on behalf of minorities, are in bed in spirit with a host of extremist ideologies and are actually more like communists without the balls and gusto than liberals.
