New Favorite Tumblr: White Guys Doing it by Themselves

Do you, as a white man, feel underrepresented in politics and public discourse? And by “underrepresented” I mean that sometimes you see or hear from people who don’t look like you? Well, look no further.

Check out some of the best posts after the jump (and of course check out the full site).
