Shocker: Beloved Right Wing Icon Fired For Publishing Right Wing Hate Rules
John Derbyshire fired for article urging children to avoid African Americans
US conservative magazine National Review says it has parted ways with columnist over ‘nasty and indefensible’ article
A leading US conservative magazine, the National Review, has fired a prominent contributor over an online column advising his children to protect themselves by avoiding African Americans, to closely scrutinise black politicians and to accept that white people are more intelligent.
John Derbyshire wrote the offending article, The Talk: Nonblack Version, as a response to widespread debate over “the talk” that many African American parents give their teenage sons about racism in America following the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida.
Derbyshire, who has previously described himself as a racist and homophobe, wrote the column in the form of “advice” to his teenage children on how to stay safe when around African Americans.
(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.
(10h) Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway.
(10i) If accosted by a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving.
The Derb has also intimated the daughter of a President should be killed, America would be a better country if only we once again made it illegal for women to vote and of course he identifies himself as a racist homophobe. Nutters will certainly miss their beloved scribe, The Derb.
