SWPL's Lander on the Self-Absorption of White Monoculture
Australian Broadcasting Corporation - The Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing & Ideas
Christian Lander stirred up countless conversations with his blog and book Stuff White People Like. It's a hipster's guide to being hip. But, it's also wildly ironic. Readers recognised themselves being skewered in his every paragraph. So, what's it all about really?In conversation with John Safran and a talkative audience, Lander explains how he classifies 'wrong' and 'right' white people, and elaborates on his playful critique of race and class. He also discusses the negative aspects of partaking in a monoculture ... and even considers what he calls "orange people" (those with fake tans) like.
