Cities White People Like Most: San Francisco Ranks Second

Posted By on Mon, Feb 10, 2014 at 1:38 PM


San Francisco is clearly one of the world's richest cities in terms of diversity -- and white people really like it.

At least the folks over at Movoto Real Estate seem to think so, as they ranked San Francisco second in their list of cities in the U.S. that white people like most.

In actuality, this is just Movoto's cheeky wink to the popular website Stuff White People Like. The real joke, however, is some of the criteria used to compile this list. For example, Movoto took into account (among other things), marijuana shops, sushi joints and Asian fusion restaurants per capita. All of that sounds pretty international, no?

San Francisco earned high points for its many international film festivals. Notice the word international! As it turns out international now equates to white.

Now again, this list isn't meant to be taken seriously but it's peculiar to attribute bicycles, graduate schools, Whole Foods and such to only white people. Okay, fine, Whole Foods perhaps, but maybe it's best to just take it all in good fun anyway.

In any case, San Francisco will gladly be maid of honor to Movoto's top pick -- in this case Portland -- so long as the bride wears white.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
