On Second Thought, I Write Like Myself

Yesterday I posted a link to a silly little meme that's supposed to analyze your writing and tell you "who you write like". Today I came across this blog post, by a blogger who analyzed it, discovered that of the forty authors included in the program there are 37 white men, three white women and no persons of color whatsoever. She politely contacted the author of the meme to point this out and the snotty answer she got is beyond belief.

I'm sorry I ever mentioned the stupid thing! From now on, I'll write like myself, thank you.

(in case you don't know who this is, it's me, Kathy, your Cottey freshman) :)
