Make your own offensive self-righteous self-aggrandizing meme here.

If you make your own, add what it is in comments below! If you want to email us the image, we’ll add it in if we like it.

Here’s Juliana’s and mine (we “co-created” it):

Here’s my first try for Privileged White Dude: Diversity: Only an Issue for Guilty White Liberals

Heard about this on Jezebel. Read their writeup, it’s awesome.

As a half-Jew all-Buddhist white boy, I find myself saying some of these things. (“White? I’m half Jewish. Back in the 50s we were so oppressed my Grandpa Bernie had to change his name to ‘Lewis’ just to do business in New York City.”)


Excerpt from Jezebel:

    Anal Sex is so 2009 — so true. Sasha Grey made it happen. Hope that trend is over, for my asshole's sake.

    Doreen Hing I ♥ this… Coming from a privileged, yuppy Asian, who is smugly proud to send her kids to an inner city PUBLIC school, as there are ethnic minorities, you Haitians & people of Colour. As an Asian, I used to consider Asians, as the non-ethnic minority…

    Waylon Lewis That's why we love you. So many of us mindful lifers can't get past the offense to see the smugness. I mean, the fact that this is making fun of offensive smug rich white boys.
