White Entreprenuerial Guy Meme

So, okay. On one hand, I’m sorta hesitant to share this because, of course, stereotyping people by class and race — whether they’re rich or poor, black or white — is kind of a crappy thing to do.

But this White Entrepreneurial Guy meme out of Detroit — in addition to stereotyping people by race and class — also raises some pretty important points about privilege in post industrial cities.

I’m going to share a few of my favorites that remind me of different situations recently in Cleveland. There are like a million of these things, which shows it really touched a nerve. Some of them are pretty spot on, I think, while others, I think, are garbage.

Yeah. Depressing.
