When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. - Hunter S. Thompson

Google Your Race

A simple enough trick; the author Googles the phrase "X people are known for" (where x=the commonly accepted name of a racial or ethnic group) and simply catalogs the first page of results; he does the same with Google image search.

Thus, according to Google, white people are known for:
  • crime
  • their conservative Republican leanings
  • either being rich or white trash
  • their racism
  • valor and graciousness
  • that suicide shit
Many other groups are represented, but since the author has published his research method, you can conduct endless variations of your own. Fun for the entire family.
