Yes, I've seen the "I write like..." meme

otherwise becoming known as "I write like... a white guy."

Jim Hines covers follow-up on this pretty well, though I've also appreciated the analysis of several others who find that samples of writing by the authors who are included (who are all white and almost all male) often get identified as "writing like" some other author in the collection.
