That "Stuff White People Like" entry is spot on (and funny). Whenever I hear about a walkathon in which participants get sponsorship for walking to put toward a charity, I always wonder why those sponsors even need this third-party person to walk before agreeing to give money to said charity. Why not just donate it and skip the whole walkathon? I think it's just a big ceremony for people to pat themselves on the back.

Right. You walk every day anyway. Do something that could kill you and I'll be impressed. Swim with sharks. Run with the Bulls. Hang-glide.

I spend an unfair amount of time in San Francisco. You'd be surprised at how much value these folks stake in "awareness," "weird actions in the name of awareness" and "awareness of things that frankly don't matter."

I would fuck a goat to eradicate AIDS. Would you? Then say you will, coward.

i agree that non-white ppl are incapable organizing or participating in fundraisers or 'awareness' causes. hell if it wasn't for white ppl sncc would never have gotten off the ground and the civil rights movement never would have happened and all my non-white friends would be mowing my lawn and doing my laundry and shit.

but on another note- who gives a shit if you give ppl an opportunity to feel like heroes without making any real commitment or sacrifice. the point is to collect contributions and pass it on to the professionals who handle the problem.

Then again, if it wasn't for some white ppl there wouldn't have been a need for a civil rights movement in the first place.

"interwebs don't convey satire very well."

Sure they do. White ppl just aint too good at picking up on it.
