The information in this article is not our opinion. It’s data, aggregated from the essays of half a million real people.

    “I am cool”. That cracks me up.

    A few random items that surprised me:

    White women’s favorite Jodi Picoult, who I had never heard of.

    Zappa on the white men’s list.

    So many white women pretending to be Red Sox fans.

    Mice and Men and Full Metal Jacket on the Latino men’s list.

    Sixteen Candles on the Latino women’s list.
