Re: “Riding the routes with six Triangle commuters

Rich, I thought I was the only who noticed that about the bike section. That the only person of color, a Black man no less, was represented as a thief. That was...underwhelming and hardly inspires me to want to continue reading. Part of me was disappointed because the Indy should represent a departure of the status quo as far as who they feature and in what context. The other part of me had to remind myself that I shouldn't have such expectations that a paper who represents independent lifestyles would also have independent thinking and be more aware of perceptions. Oh that and some journalists are lazy and they stick to their circles and try not to do much digging for the sake of the article. The bike section here appeared to be paint by number: extolling the virtue of one group (White) while presenting the antithesis of another (Black)...status quo.

If that was harsh, then consider this...my comment is here buried among others. Your representation in this article was seen by all who clicked in bright and in color, albeit a monochromatic one.

By the way, no POC riders? http://thegrio.com/2013/09/25/black-men-take-to-bikes/

I wrote that piece for MSNBC while I was in NC volunteering at the Recyclery.
