#2 - Leftist Hipsters and Independent Movies

Stuff White People Like assumes all white people are leftist hipsters: non-Christian, indie film lovers who ride bikes and drink expensive coffee spiked with soy milk and tears shed by crying Indians. To chronicle the blog's assumptions would take decades.

We'll begin with the most obvious.

White People Don't Like Indie Films

If white people liked indie films, we couldn't call them “indie,” we'd call them “profitable.” White people do not like indie films. In fact, no one likes indie films. Not even you.

(Exception: The only successful indie films appeal to passionate political pockets of white people who will pay to watch sucky movies for a “cause.”

Examples of these political marriages include Juno and pro-life Christians, or Farenheit 9/11 and Ron Paul's supporters.
