How white am I? The best thing since white bread.
 

White people enjoy keeping score because--with the notable exception of team sports--white people win at everything. Unfortunately, after high school, white people spend most of their time around other white people, creating a need for reliable intra-Caucasian methods of establishing superiority. Thus, the existence of NPR pledge drives, graduate degrees in liberal arts, and the New York Times crossword puzzle--but no more. We now have the ultimate tool for determining relative whiteness--the HowWhiteAmI quiz.

About the Quiz

As fans of StuffWhitePeopleLike, our privileged upbringing allowed us to earn an upper-middle class living without any serious effort or ambition. To assuage our guilt under the guise of productivity, we created a quiz that helps our fellow moleskine-toting latte-sippers measure their precise level of whiteness.

The Startup

White people love to pretend that that they're pulling themselves up by their bootstraps when the side-business funded with the excesses of their six-figure office jobs doesn't lose money. HowWhiteAmI is no different. It's a proof-of-concept that will be used by our über-stealth startup to further our mission of helping bloggers more easily make money.
