Salon’s David Sirota inspired the #Siroting meme when he hoped that the Boston Marathon bomber was a white guy. On Wednesday, CNN reported that a suspect in the bombing is a “dark-skinned male.” CNN and the Associated Press report that an arrest has been made and the suspect is in custody. [Update: The FBI and Boston Police Department say no arrests have been made as of Wednesday afternoon.]
Quick, someone check on David. And bring a supply of clean undies.
CNN says bombing suspect "dark skinned male". Sirota weeps bitterly.

Tan, white or “dark-skinned,” we hope the bomber is brought to justice soon.
