Skip to comments.The Talk: Nonblack Version
Posted on 04/07/2012 5:04:29 AM PDT by reaganaut1
There is a talk that nonblack Americans have with their kids, too. My own kids, now 19 and 16, have had it in bits and pieces as subtopics have arisen. If I were to assemble it into a single talk, it would look something like the following.
(1) Among your fellow citizens are forty million who identify as black, and whom I shall refer to as black. The cumbersome (and MLK-noncompliant) term African-American seems to be in decline, thank goodness. Colored and Negro are archaisms. What you must call the N word is used freely among blacks but is taboo to nonblacks.
(2) American blacks are descended from West African populations, with some white and aboriginal-American admixture. The overall average of non-African admixture is 20-25 percent. The admixture distribution is nonlinear, though: It seems that around 10 percent of the African American population is more than half European in ancestry. (Same link.)
(3) Your own ancestry is mixed north-European and northeast-Asian, but blacks will take you to be white.
(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, howevere.g., paragraph (10h) belowthis default principle should be overridden by considerations of personal safety.
(5) As with any population of such a size, there is great variation among blacks in every human trait (except, obviously, the trait of identifying oneself as black). They come fat, thin, tall, short, dumb, smart, introverted, extroverted, honest, crooked, athletic, sedentary, fastidious, sloppy, amiable, and obnoxious. There are black geniuses and black morons. There are black saints and black psychopaths.

Did you include in your talk that there are in 2007, 400,000 violent attacks by Los Negros against Los Blancos but only 50,000 vice versa. And since they comprise just 13 percent of the population ....they are about 40 times as violent against Los Blancos than would be expected. .....or how about 14000 sexual assualts by Los Negros against White Women and NO SEXUAL ASSUALTS BY WHITES AGAINST BLACK WOMEN.....from Suicide of a Superpower.
The problem is the black tribe.
This is a well reasoned and delineated piece. The sources for figures are quite vague and would be trashed by Harvard scholars. SJ Gould would exhibit his greatest weakness by declaring the piece to be racist drivel.
Although I do not have many daily very close encounters, the piece reflects my overall life experience.
It merely hints at the problem of Afrocentric mentality that puffs up heritage beyond that which is stone age and savage. It does not explore the excellence of hybridization
recognizable in a host of splendid individuals.
But that is not the intention. It is a rational framework for lessons to one’s own children
John Derbyshire has been fired from National Review for writing this piece.

Are you serious, or are you being sarcastic? I honestly can’t tell.
Lowry, Ponnoru and Goldberg all published the required denunciations within hours.
Did the “talk” include the fact that black inter-racial dating by your daughter(s) increases exponentially their victimization and involvement in crimes such as domestic violence, assault and murder?
I do not see it as a zot, talking about race is not always racist.
It is an uncomfortable observation for this humble servant,
However, In my > 50 years on this Earth,
The ONLY times I have had a Gun, or a Knife Pulled on me,
Or Chased by Muggers,
The ONLY time I have had a close friend Raped and Murdered
was by those of the hyper-pigmented persuasion
Just one person’s experience...
I would love to Zot this article, but I can’t...
>> Its true.
There’s nothing in the Derbyshire piece that is not factual and backed by proof or evidence.
Shame on Lowry et al. I would say “I’ll never go to NRO”, but the truth is, I’ve been going there less and less anyway due to their Romney-pimping.
Phony conservatives, Manhattan style. A pox on them.
You mean the “girly men” of National Review? I’m not surprised at anything the do.

Freedom of speech and honesty do not seem to be acceptable at NRO. Political correctness and all that. Having grown up in an integrated area and having heard bits and pieces of another version of the talk perhaps NRO should publish an honest recount that is retold over and over again in black communities.
Wow! That’s the most upfront article on race and attending issues I believe I’ve ever read. Pretty much sums up why we can never have a talk on race in this country until free speech and responsibility is commonplace.
I can’t imagine the leftist heads that are exploding reading that one...
Haven’t found anything that says he’s fired. Lots of yammering about how he SHOULD be fired.
Why is it that only journalists who tell the truth get fired?
We have become a nation of wussies. Our forefathers are rolling in their graves.
