The Prius might be the most perfect white product ever. It's expensive, gives the idea that you are helping the environment, and requires no commitment or life changes other than having slightly less money.
The Toyota Prius gets 45 miles per gallon. That's right, you can drive 45 miles and burn only one gallon of gasoline. So somehow, through marketing or perception, the Prius lets people think that driving their car is GOOD for the environment. It's a pretty sweet deal for white people. You can buy a car, continue to drive to work and to Barak Obama rallies, and still feel like you are helping the environment!
Some white people pull the ultimate move: Prius, Apple sticker on the back, iPod rocking, and Democratic candidate bumper sticker. Unstoppable!
There are a few ways you can use this to your advantage. If you are carpooling to an event or party, you can always say "Can we take your Prius? My car doesn't get good mileage, and I feel guilty driving it," and bam! Free ride!
Also, if you see a white person in a Prius you can say, "Wow, it's great to see that you're doign something for the Earth." The white person will feel very good about themself and offer to drive you home or to IKEA or to drop you off at an '80s night.
