I wrote recently about ‘the talk’ that black parents give their adolescent sons in order to try and keep them out of trouble. Writer John Derbyshire decided to publish his own ‘nonblack version of the talk’. It included such gems as:
(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.
(10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.
(10c) If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date (neglect of that one got me the closest I have ever gotten to death by gunshot).
(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.
(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.
(10f) Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians.
(10g) Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white.
Although Derbyshire has a long history of writing things that flirt with racism and sexism, this was too much even for The National Review Online, where he was a frequent contributor, and they have said they will no longer publish his work.
