I’ve been thinking lately how we can make America great again. And all these shallow thoughts are causing me to overstate things like how the oppressed, poor, and innocent abroad no longer want to come here. Or how the current president is taking the country to hell in a hand basket, just like the last president of an opposing party did.

Stuff White People Like is the sharpest satire of pretentious, leftist, and faker white lifestyles ever written. Out of 100+ entries so far, these are my favorites:
- #2 Religions that their parents don’t belong to
- #62 Knowing what’s best for poor people
- #8 Barack Obama
- #75 Threatening to move to Canada
- #94 Free healthcare
