Vox is a Rosetta Stone for translating a specific type of mainstream white cultural discourse. It’s a step above satirical “Stuff White People Like” in that it is sincere and it usually has an infographic. Infographics are how you know something is “data-driven”. This isn’t just a read of stuff white people like. It is actually what some white people like enough to talk about it across media that Learned People cannot avoid.
Yeah, that about sums it up.
