What white people like: graduate school

Check out the entry "Graduate School", on the pseudo-anthropological
blog "Stuff White People Like". Something of a Hitchhiker's Guide style, it seems.

Excerpt: "It is important to understand that a graduate degree does not make someone smart, so do not feel intimidated.... The best thing you can do is to act impressed when a white person talks about critical theorists. This helps them reaffirm that what they learned in graduate school was important and that they are smarter than you. This makes white people easier to deal with when you get promoted ahead of them."
