Think Progress has a short post up about conservative columnist/National Review contributor John Derbyshire who, big surprise, is a huge flaming racist. In his latest, ah, commentary? Column? Pile of shit? Derbyshire makes a nice list of lessons to his kids about race called The Talk: Nonblack Version.
Oh wait, did I say "nice"? I meant "racist as fuck".
(4) The default principle in everyday personal encounters is, that as a fellow citizen, with the same rights and obligations as yourself, any individual black is entitled to the same courtesies you would extend to a nonblack citizen. That is basic good manners and good citizenship. In some unusual circumstances, however—e.g., paragraph (10h) below—this default principle should be overridden by considerations of personal safety.[Emphasis mine.] So, be polite to blacks, but only if they're not scary blacks! *eye roll* (We'll get to 10h a little later)
(8) These differences are magnified by the hostility many blacks feel toward whites. Thus, while black-on-black behavior is more antisocial in the average than is white-on-white behavior, average black-on-white behavior is a degree more antisocial yet."Antisocial" has got to be a dogwhistle. You can almost feel how much Johnny wants to use the word "monkeys".
(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).*Passover seder tomorrow night, followed by Easter, which means cooking all day long. Ugh.
homemade matzo (quick)
"heavenly" lemon pie (difficult, time consuming)
some sort of veggie dish to be determined at some point before I go to the supermarket
**Nobody else matters, I guess.
