National Review Online’s John Derbyshire has penned the sort of racist drivel that makes me want to dump a bottle of single-malt over my head. Essentially, he takes “The Talk” which black parents have with their kids to keep them from ending up like Trayvon Martin, and retools it for white folks.
Needless to say, it’s aggressively stupid and unimaginably racist.
Let’s just say, if you took some racism, added more racism, and then wrapped it in racism, the end product still would not be as racist as Derbyshire’s really really ridiculously racist “common sense” tips for his kids.
Here they are (with added tipsfrom yours truly):
(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally. [A strange Negro is a dangerous Negro. -ed.]
(10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods. [If you see spinning rims, hear loud thumping bass, and see cars bouncing up and down as if on a pogo stick, get the fuck out of there. You’re about to get capped. -ed.]
(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). [Be sure to call up Six Flags and ask for scientifically-sound data regarding the ratio of Negroes to non-Negroes. Also, ask about the ‘conceal and carry’ policies. You may want to bring your handgun, in case shit gets real and you’re forced to stand your ground. As for the beach, black people don’t swim, so instead of being in the water, they’re usually on the beach rifling through your shit, so keep yo shit under lock and key. -ed.]
(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks. [Stay away from basketball courts, watermelon patches, and Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles -ed.]
(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible. [If you see a wave of blacks coming at you, you better run or lock and load! -ed.]
(10f) Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians. [Isn’t this just 10(b) repeated? Also, does this mean that all you racist-ass white people are going to finally leave the country when Obama wins his second term? I hear hell is unseasonably warm. -ed.]
(10g) Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white. [Make sure you ask for his long-form birth certificate and determine whether or not he maintains anti-colonialist views. Most black politicians are con artists. -ed.]
(10h) Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway. [If you see a Negro with a flat tire, keep it movin’. We’re probably going to carjack you. -ed.]
(10i) If accosted by a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving. [ You’re just asking for trouble. Do not stop for strange Negroes. They’re usually up to no good. What the fuck are you doing in a black neighborhood anyway? We talked about this already. (See 10(b).) -ed.]
(11) The mean intelligence of blacks is much lower than for whites. The least intelligent ten percent of whites have IQs below 81; forty percent of blacks have IQs that low. Only one black in six is more intelligent than the average white; five whites out of six are more intelligent than the average black. These differences show in every test of general cognitive ability that anyone, of any race or nationality, has yet been able to devise. They are reflected in countless everyday situations. “Life is an IQ test.” [Ni-CLANG!s are stupid. It says so in The Bell Curve. -ed.][Click to read the rest at The Raw Story]
