I'm not a particularly political person, and readers have mixed feelings about my rare polemical outbursts. I understand that. I'm not much of a cycling expert either, which is hardly news. But one thing I know pretty well, because I'm paid to know it thanks to the dayjob, is how we got into the current economic goat-rodeo that we're in. And one thing is for damn sure: It's not the fault of poor black people getting subprime mortgages, and anyone who says so -- even if they're a cycling enthusiast and advocate, and yes even if they have the nuts to race CX -- is a goddamn racist, and no friend of mine.
Just so you know. Full disclosure around here, yo.
