We All Write Like White Men

So, I’d been eyeing that meme going around since yesterday…


You know the one, the one where you plug in something you’ve written, and it tells you who you write like?


But I was starting to notice an uncomfortable pattern, so I decided to plug in some famous authors.


I started with people whom I knew were actually represented in the meme generator:
