Mark Judge: Racist 'White Guilt' Article in Daily Caller
Daily Caller's Mark Judge Does Poor Detective Work, Writes Weird Racist Article
Poor Mark Judge. The Washington, D.C. writer found that his bike was stolen over Easter weekend in Washington, D.C., and his response was to write a racist article for The Daily Caller called "The End of My White Guilt". It's like the start of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, but with more racism and fewer bow ties.
Mark Judge bases his hand-wringing on the following deduction:
Since the time I was an undergrad at Catholic University in the 1980s, most of the crime that has occurred on campus has come from those neighborhoods, which are predominately black. As sure as it took the D.C. cops forever to get to the parking lot to file a report, I knew that the odds were very high that a black person had taken my bike — maybe one of the kids that had been described.
So, to recap, Mark Judge left his bike locked to his car in Washington, D.C., and it got stolen. Judge did not see it get stolen, so he presumes that a black person stole it. If your response was, "that makes zero sense", that means your brain is working.
Actually, leaving a bike outside in a big city has nothing to do with "white guilt". It's called "being an idiot". See, people steal bikes in big cities. Really. In fact, Judge may want to look up what white guilt actually is.
I decided that I’m just going to let go of my white guilt. We’re all human, we all experience pain in our lives. And black pain is no different than white pain.
In other words, "My bike was stolen and now I feel different about black people". That's what we'd consider a racist article, but John Derbyshire would probably approve.
Again, Mark, you have no idea who stole your bike. Settle down. Your bike was stolen by a bike thief.
The Daily Caller may be a Huffington Post for conservatives, but Mark Judge isn't finding many friends in the comment section of his screed:
- "Quick translation: MY bike got stolen, and I've always been a racist, but now I'm going to say so out loud and will accept no criticism, because see the thing before about my bike. MY bike."
- "Update your facebook status with your tale of woe, don't turn it into The Big Story Of American Race Relations As Proven By Butthurt Mark Judge's Nice Stolen Bike."
- " Thank you for this piece. I have been trying to kill my brain for weeks. This finally did the job."
