Not as funny as stuffwhitepeoplelike:

I was laughing very loudly in the library because that describes 95% of the Educated Black People I know (including myself).  It's always good to take a look and laugh at yourself.
Damn...it's the third year already!!

It is easy to change the language of oppression without changing the sociopolitical situation of its victims.

LOL! 

I agree with all that's pretty much already been said.  This didn't make me laugh out loud like the whitepeoplelike site, but I think with some time the blogger can become skillful enough to cloak his words in humor and wit.  (s)He's not quite there yet, but some of the observations are true though.  Not funny, but true.

Haha, a lot of it applies to me.  But I only thought #4 was funny. 

He just needs to work on his writing. I think it will get to be more funny.  Stuff White People Like is gold though, LOL


ETA: Even the title could be more funny... Stuff Bougie Black People Like, or something.

Now, this other blog is funny.  I haven't read the rest of it, but the link there is priceless.  :D

Yes, this one is much better.  It's not laugh-out-loud funny, but much more smartly written, ironically.  I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

ETA: The Edubonics footnote is hilarious and quite true

Question...so I applied to this one dual degree program. I just got an email saying that I got into the graduate part of the degree. But the email says something like...your first year will be in the graduate school and the last three will be in the law school. It doesn't say anything about waiting to see if I get into the law school side etc. Does this mean that I will automatically get into the law school too? It's a pretty competitive law school so that would be great!! Any thoughts on this?
