I used to work in a bookstore that specialized in religious books. By far the most shoplifted items were Islamic books and books on Islam. We estimated that we caught about 50 percent of the shoplifters. Of the ones we caught, about 80 percent were trying to steal Islamic materials. Of that 80 percent, all were black. Why so many black Muslim shoplifters?

They’re probably not Muslim yet. Many black converts to Islam hit rock-bottom with crime before turning to religion. Maybe what you’re seeing is street punks searching for meaning in life – not that that can nessesarily be found in a book.
