…it’s true: stuff white people like

In politics, television, the wire on March 18, 2008 at 8:47 pm

it’s true I’m white and I like The Wire as recent posts have shown. To throw some more intertextual race dialogue on here, maybe I should start posting more about Black Kids, the band. That would then legitimize some type of guilt that the “Stuff White People Like” blog thinks I have a complex about…or something. There is possibly a whole lot to go into here, but I just finished reading Mailer’s “The White Negro” again for a paper in class along with Penn Warren’s All The King’s Men…so I’ll leave it alone for now.
