Off With His Head!

John Derbyshire over at National Review Online has gotten himself in trouble for something that he didn't publish there, but at another conservative media outlet, Taki's Magazine. Please note that the link I just made might not work, because of both heavy traffic at the site and because there are calls for the article to be taken down/vanished down the memory hole.

Derbyshire wrote an article on race connected with the Trayvon Martin shooting. In the aftermath of that event, various black writers have written of "The Talk" that they have to have with their young male children about how to behave in the racist United States (not how they phrase it, but that's the implication). Derbyshire chimed in with his own version of "The Talk" geared toward a white audience; some excerpts:

(9) A small cohort of blacks—in my experience, around five percent—is ferociously hostile to whites and will go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm us. A much larger cohort of blacks—around half—will go along passively if the five percent take leadership in some event. They will do this out of racial solidarity, the natural willingness of most human beings to be led, and a vague feeling that whites have it coming.

(10) Thus, while always attentive to the particular qualities of individuals, on the many occasions where you have nothing to guide you but knowledge of those mean differences, use statistical common sense:

(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.

There is a lot more, about IQ differences between the races and the need to cultivate Intelligent, Well-Socialized Blacks (IWSB's, Derbyshire calls them) so as to not seem racist. The passages I've quoted above seem to be the most offensive, and yet they are the sections of advice that make the most common sense, given the increasing amount of violence that occurs when blacks gather together. It's the flash mob phenomenon that features in headlines so often these days.

So, go read the article. If you wish to read it more than once, download it to your own computer, because it might be erased from the internets before too much longer.

Update: Matt Lewis has an article up at The Daily Caller about the kerfuffle. It's funny how Lewis et. al. are using the same language toward the issue ("I support the 1st Amendment, but...") that the President and other gun-haters use toward the 2nd Amendment.

Update 2: Under the bus he goes.

Darbyshire is a jackass, but is it surprising to see that after a generation of racial balkinization by a professional grievance class that there's some sort of reaction?

Heck, in France and Austria (at least) there are popular parties for the white lower class. People should be careful lest we become more like Europe ...

Just look at Oakland. And there besides race we can also observe much of Socialism-in-action (deep and abiding corruption) - and that of Socialist inaction.
