The Bicycle Thief

Mark Judge once wrote a book declaring that Catholics ought not have sex without his prior permission (A Tremor of Bliss). Yesterday he condemned all blacks to earthly purgatory because he thinks one of them might have stolen his bicycle.

Now, he didn't actually see who stole his bike. No one else did either. But, some black children were seen on the street within two blocks of his bicycle and that was enough evidence for him to conclude that an entire race was responsible for the crime.

 His story is hardly a compelling, neorealistic drama, being more a veiled justification for shooting Trayvon Martin because you never know when some hoodie wearing African-American will take you bicycle. 

NOTE: Italians can steal bikes too.
