    There is much talk about “the talk.” “Sean O’Reilly was 16 when his mother gave him the talk that most black parents give their teenage sons,” Denisa R. Superville of the Hackensack (NJ) Record tells us. Meanwhile, down in Atlanta: “Her sons were 12 and 8 when Marlyn Tillman realized it was time for her to have the talk,” Gracie Bonds Staples writes in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Leonard Greene talks about the talk in the New York Post. Someone bylined as KJ Dell’Antonia talks about the talk in The New York Times. Darryl Owens talks about the talk in...

    [Scene: A bakery store somewhere in the U.S.A.]Customer: “Good morning!” Store clerk: “Hello. How may I help you?” Customer: “Do you do wedding cakes?” Clerk: “Yes, we do.” Customer: “Great. My partner and I are getting married. We need a cake for the reception.” Clerk: “OK, but I have to ask: Are you and your partner the same sex?” Customer: “You mean ‘gender’? Yes, same gender.” Clerk: “Then I’m sorry, we can’t do it. We belong to a religious group that teaches it’s wrong to promote homosexuality.” Customer: “Oh. Is there another baker nearby I could try?” Clerk: “Sure. Foster’s...

    We live, as I have noted before, in a beggars’ democracy: This refers to the more relaxed sort of despotism in which the lower orders—the beggars—are permitted some modest freedoms of expression, so long as they do not challenge the basic assumptions of the state ideology too boldly. There is no chance that any of us beggars out on the dissident right will have the chance to publicly quiz the 2016 presidential hopefuls. We can dream, though. If I could ask the hopefuls 20 questions each, here is what I would ask them, by policy categories. I have restricted my...
  • Village of Stilton BANNED from making cheese which bears its name…officials refuse to bend EU rules

    The village of Stilton has been banned from making its namesake cheese after EU officials ruled it originated in another part of England. Under European law, the renowned blue cheese can only be produced in Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Controversy arose when the Bells Inn in Stilton, Cambridgeshire, announced it wished to name their own blue-veined cheese after the village—rather than “Bells Blue”, which they have been forced to do. However, in a landmark decision that the pub has branded unfair, an application submitted by the Original Cheese Company to amend the EU Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) ruling has...

    Hard evidence that the engravings of women and extinct creatures at Creswell Crags are more than 12,800 years old is published today, making them Britain's oldest rock art. Creswell Crags, on the Nottinghamshire-Derbyshire border, is riddled with caves which contain preserved evidence of human activity during the last Ice Age. Recently, engravings were found on the walls and ceiling depicting animals such as the European Bison, now extinct in Britain, female dancers or birds - depending on the view of the archaeologist - and intimate female body parts. Dating rock art is difficult, especially if there are no charcoal-based black...

    Beat Whitey Night, Polar Bear Hunting, The Knockout Game…it’s about time the major media began to scratch the surface of this long-occurring practice. It is, after all, merely the internet-video-driven, plainly visible tip of a much larger and deeper iceberg, which has been around for many years. We can argue endlessly about the causes of it, but the fact remains that for several decades, blacks have been statistically far more likely to do horrible violence to non-blacks than the other way around. But you’d be unlikely to know that unless you get your intelligence from somewhere other than establishment information...

    This Is Derbyshire ^ | 15 Mar 2008 | MARTIN NAYLOR
    Rare Roman gold coins regarded as "priceless" by experts have been unearthed in Derbyshire. The coins, which date back to AD 286, were discovered by Derrick Fretwell while he was out digging near Ashbourne. After an internet search failed to shed any light on his discovery, he turned to Derby Museum who, in turn, sought help from experts at the British Museum in London. Their studies have revealed that one of the coins has never been classified before and the other is the first example to be found since 1975. The museum's Sam Moorhead, an expert in Roman antiquities, said:...

    The United States will accelerate the resettlement of about 7,000 Iraqis referred by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and will contribute $18 million to the agency's appeal for Iraq, about one-third of the total, Undersecretary of State Paula J. Dobriansky said Wednesday. — Washington Post, 2/15/07 I hope it won't be thought impertinent, over-inquisitive, or — Heaven forfend! — mean-spirited of me to ask, but: Just what, exactly, are these refugees seeking refuge from? Us? A few more questions come to mind. Let us suppose, for example, that Sergeant John Q. American, a serving member of the U.S. armed...

    ... The topic here is of course my Taki’s Mag column of last week, which has brought me worldwide fame, though no doubt only for the proverbial fifteen minutes. ... Was it a suicide column? Many people have surmised that I was fed up with National Review and wanted to go out with a bang. Nothing of the sort. I was comfortable at NR and honestly thought I was writing a routine column on a website that anyway never references my NR connections. The results were entirely unanticipated. Grassy knolls. Some people went berserk overanalyzing the situation. Guys: Most things...

    London Mayor Boris Johnson spoke the other day about the riots that devastated London and other English cities last summer: The biggest shock for me from the riots was the sheer sense of nihilism—perhaps I should not have been shocked, but in my view literacy and numeracy are the best places to start. In seven particular boroughs in London one in four children are leaving functionally illiterate. In a few schools it is nearer 50%. We have to intervene at an earlier stage, and I think the mayor can help. Here is a thing that The New York Times said...

    Say this for John Derbyshire – he thinks what he thinks and doesn’t care who knows it. In fact, he’s willing to give an interview to arguably one of the most likely sites to be hostile on the internet. To that end, Derbyshire has given his first interview after being let go by National Review for writing a racially controversial article to the hipster-focused website Gawker, on the condition that they not censor any of his answers. As it turns out, that’s not a problem for them. Here are some of Derb’s most interesting observations: --------------------------------------------------- I liked working with...

    <p>I didn’t agree with Derb on many things, from Ron Paul and talk radio to God and science. For his part, he reckoned I was a bit of a wimp on what he called “the Great Unmentionables.” He thought that neuroscientists and geneticists’ understanding of race trumped my touching belief in “culture.” I’m not so sure: Why is Haiti Haiti and Barbados Barbados? Why is India India and Pakistan Pakistan? Skin color and biological determinism don’t get you very far on that.</p>

    John Derbyshire has set off a mini firestorm by responding to an article which details advice that black parents give their kids about coping with "White America", by giving advice to his own kids about coping with black America. And imagine White America's collective shock... he has been denounced for it as being racist. (actually I think it's ... "RACIST!!!") Racism, as we know, is the ultimate liberal heresy. There are difference between black (ethno-African) Americans, and White (European) Americans which are obvious at a distance. And there are dramatic difference between the sub culture of Black America and the...

    I've been a subscriber to NRODT since 1986, but Rich Lowry's mewling, whingeing, trembling mischacterization of Mr. Derbyshire's article is unacceptable. It is time for NRODT and me to part company. This is my Chuck Turner moment. I had subscribed to the Boston Globe, forever. But after they printed those fraudulent photos from Chuck Turner I got the motivation to drop my subscription. Well, I'll take the 50 bucks or so a year that NRODT costs and use it to support whatever enterprise has the savvy to scoop up Mr. Derbyshire.

    ... 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...

    Anyone who has read Derb in our pages knows he’s a deeply literate, funny, and incisive writer. I direct anyone who doubts his talents to his delightful first novel, “Seeing Calvin Coolidge in a Dream, or any one of his “Straggler” columns in the books section of NR. Derb is also maddening, outrageous, cranky, and provocative. His latest provocation, in a webzine, lurches from the politically incorrect to the nasty and indefensible. We never would have published it, but the main reason that people noticed it is that it is by a National Review writer. Derb is effectively using our...

    I can’t understand why Newt Gingrich is getting such a pass on his Freddie Mac consulting. He claims to have been a historian for this outfit? FHLMC needs a historian like the U.S.A. needs a Department of Education, like Europe needs a common currency, like … like … I dunno, like Michelle Obama needs another $12,000 accessory. I sputtered about this on last week’s Radio Derb: Newt’s trying to ju-jitsu the thing, telling us that his experience as a shill for Freddie Mac gave him valuable insider understanding of governmental affairs. Isn’t that what we want in a candidate, valuable...
