The racism of the literate right: Derbyshire’s defenders
Lest you think that flagrant, unfettered racism is primarily the domain of the semi-literate morons who inhabit sites like foxnation, I invite you to peruse the comment thread at Forbes attacking Josh Barro for condeming Derbyshire and calling on National Review to fire him. They have the advantage of (usually) being more coherent than those at foxnation, but the sentiments are the same.
“Every statement by National Review writer John Derbyshire is not only CORRECT, it’s common sense! Every American who isn’t blinded by political correctness knows that a very large percentage of the black community is uneducated, violent, feral, and de-evolving before our very eyes.”
“Why does Forbes magazine allow such political views into a business publication. Mr. Barro’s opinions are not in step with the vast majority of America. Black people are dangerous to themselves and the rest of society. Just like ‘stranger, danger’, it is wise to inform your children how to avoid being one of the statistics that Mr. Barro would quietly sweep under the rug.”
“Why is it inappropriate to profile other people? Is it wrong to notice patterns of behavior among various races of people? Is it wrong to protect yourself and your family against violence? Why should Derbyshire not be ‘taken seriously’ on this issue? Is he uneducated? Has he said something false? What is it to be ‘credible’ on the topic of race? Never to stray beyond the pluralist/multi-cultural orthodoxy of American ‘main stream’ media?”
“The perverted BLACK subculture continues to infest neighborhood after neighborhood like an intrusion of BLACK cockroaches. If there’s BLACK smoke there’s a BBQ!
If the BLACK shoe fits then wear both of them! Stop covering for the ‘anointed minority’ …… ENOUGH. What does the Congressional White Caucus say about all the placating of this perverted subculture?”
“Having a son who just turned 16 I have already had to have a similar talk regarding blacks. He is now at an age where he is beginning to take college seriously which means he needs to know how affirmative action works. He is blond and blue eyed which means he will qualify for absolutely zip for special admission type programs. Rather than pretend that racial preferences don’t exist like good disingenuous white liberals like Barro do, I prefer to tell my son what to expect so he will be prepared for life.”
“Welcome to life in modern America, where stating the unvarnished truth about race relations causes the doyennes of political correctness to demand the speaker be fired.”
“You are a jack-ass. Derbyshire must NOT be fired,he should be given a raise! He said what any half-way intelligent white person is thinking and should be talking about! You are a horses ass. Money grubbing pig! As for the ‘real tragedy’ it ios NOT black on black,nor is it the danger faced y the poor der sweet hoodie clad darkie yoofs,it is black on WHITE savagery,which is growing all the time.”
