I’m not white. I’m ecru.

Although they have been stereotypically overrepresented in popular media as muscular heroes in extremely tight outfits or the President of the United States, actually white men are a diverse population with the full human range of variations. You can’t just make blanket statements like, “White men like Snickers bars,” which, yeah, okay, most of them do. However, today’s white man is more likely to be a tow truck driver or chemical engineer than a singing cowboy or G-man. But big media companies manipulate the narrative and who is the poorer for it? We all are, my friends. We all are.
