Excuse me?

That's according to John Lander, the (white) wit behind the Web sensation Stuff White People Like blog, an irreverent daily missive on the passions of posh urbanites of the Caucasian persuasion.

It's the latest in a string of similar blogs (first came, then that act as a virtual shrink's sofa for those tackling the tricky topics of race and class.

Lander is not the only one who uses the Web site as cheap and easy therapy, though the 29-year-old admits that's exactly what it is for him.

Fancy coffee

Farmers markets

Dinner parties

Gay friends

Swimming pools

Movie stars
