I'm skeptical of claims that "affirmative action" means that unqualified people are getting the best jobs, scholarships, and other opportunities. With one exception: white dudes.  While many, many white dudes are objectively awesome, some of them—I'll just say it—have been graded on the curves of their white penises.  

Which is why I'm grateful that Overrated White Dudes has come into being to help set the record straight. Who out there is getting a lot more attention that he would get on a truly level playing field?  OWD is here to explore potential answers to that question.  Roll your mouse over some of these entries to get the captions:

So, Pandagonians, what would be your submissions?  Whose pale dudeness do you feel has allowed the world to make more of him than he really deserves?
