The Talk – what you should tell your kids about race

April 7, 2012
By

Apparently, if you’re black, you should say this:

“Don’t put your hands in your pocket a lot. People will think you have a gun… Don’t walk around with stuff in your pockets. People will think you stole something.”

And, if you’re not black, you should say this:

(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.

(10b)Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.

(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).

(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.

(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.

Common sense? Or evil stereotyping? We report, you decide.

    I don’t know about the rules for blacks at the top, but the rules for whites, I totally subscribe to. I will say it openly, I follow every one of those rules, when my wife and sons are with me.

    Ask the white kid who got mobbed by those blacks in Baltimore.

    Zero street smarts.

    Ignorance creates victims.

    Mr Derbyshire’s statements seem rational and politically incorrect. If even five percent of Blacks are hostile, self justified and potentially injurious, then it makes sense to take precautions. This is not the fault of Blacks, per se, but that the Left have turned them into a cause célèbre. They have justified Blacks as a privileged class.

    If a Black acts suspiciously by loitering at night inside a gated community, then asking then for an explanation is considered harassment by the left. Do white people have the right to protect themselves and their property? Apparently not, says the left.

    ” Do white people have the right to protect themselves and their property?”

    I would bet a fair number of Sanford residents are now armed. After the episode with Trayvon Martin, a simple sign on the home indicating the owner is armed would be money well spent.

    Stupid anti-American liberal:

    Zero street smarts = liberal Democrat

    I was born and raised in Chicago. Grew up in a blue collar Polish/Italian area on the NW side. Far from sheltered. Can honestly say,their are few black areas of the city I ever went in. In the cases I was in them,it was to get somewhere else,as quick as possible.

    That column got Derbyshire fired from National Review.

  8. MikeN on April 7, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Romney is going to be asked about this, and he’s goign to disown the comments of course. Too bad Newt Gingrich left two wives, or we’d have a real candidate who can stand up to such political correctness.

    If Trayvon had replaced black with white in the points and applied them to Sanford he’d still be alive.

    What he said is absolutely common sense– just ask Jesse Jackson. He said the same damn thing in so many words years ago. But never mind. We can now be distracted by leftists screaming “racism”…

    I’m glad I’m here.

    A gun-free zone is a target-rich environment for criminals, because only the criminals have guns there.

    I mistrust ANY group that supports the fascist Democrat party. So it’s not just blacks that should cause concern. I avoid their neighborhoods, businesses, and those who support them.

  12. MikeN on April 8, 2012 at 8:31 am

    I am, Trayvon should have gotten the black talk, no hoodies, nothing in your pocket, walk carefully, etc.
    That was not a white dominated neighborhood, so you are wrong already.

  13. ken_phd on April 8, 2012 at 8:54 am

    MikeN:

    You are correct. Trayvon should have gotten the black talk.

    Can you imagine if Trayvon had been in a black community being followed by a slow moving car? Would he have put on his hoodie and doubled back to confront the unknown observer? Even Tillman wouldn’t drink that koolaid.

    In any case, the Tulsa arrests will provide the escape hatch for the MSM and the Justice department.

  14. I am on April 8, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    MikeN “That was not a white dominated neighborhood, so you are wrong already.” The census data for that area show 15% black 51% white 25% hispanic.

    Where are you getting your information?

  15. Trent Telenko on April 8, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    This shows that the National Review is far more worried aboout their image in DC than they are with their brand name with the Tea Party and other truth lovers.

  16. Trent Telenko on April 8, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    The reality is that on-line sites like http://www.crimemapping.com/map.aspx are increasingly being used by average people to look around the local area fto see the real crime environment they are living in.

    And they are noticing that areas where large numbers of blacks live are where the crimes are. And things like the Baltimore beating and criminal flashmobs (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/06/chicago-flash-mobs-appare_n_871924.html & http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHChNxtuKDc) are not a “white” phenomina.

    All the Trayvon incident did was show that the media’s reporting and people’s experience of crime are widely divergent and getting increasingly so as the Internet is routing harsh unpleasent truth’s around the political/media filters.

    Derbyshire’s crime was dropping that filter all the way down — including bringing in recent, politically incorrect but solid, genetic science to hit multiculturalism in its guts — to the point the National Review was willing to gnaw its arm off, and impact its brand name for conservative “hard truth”, to get away from it.

    In other words the new GOP racist and proud of it.

    The reason Deryshire got canned is because he crossed the line of decency one time too many and by too far.

    The GOP reaction has been at least with the kind of racist that are found here to try and defend that crazy racism. The conversation that the NRO is trying to avoid having in the public eye is not that blacks are genetically inferior or socially bent toward crime because they know their readers believe that BS. The conversation the NRO is trying to avoid is Why are so many supporters of the GOP proudly open racists.

    Obama couldn’t have even hopped that the kinds of conversations going on right now on the right would happen in an election year. GOP trying to say the race problem in the US is the black man has too much power over the white man, women have too many rights and taxing multi millionaires at a rate close to what poorer people pay is wrong.

    And yet the overt and extreme racism of the Left is completely ignored in your version of reality.

    Funny how that is.

  19. I am on April 9, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    Which overt and extreme racism? Please post a few links to sites popular like red state, breitbart, fox nation, NRO that are on the left where I’ll read the kind of racism like I can at the above sites or this one?

  20. ken_phd on April 10, 2012 at 4:42 am

    I am:

    “Please post a few links to sites popular like red state, breitbart, fox nation, NRO that are on the left where I’ll read the kind of racism like I can at the above sites or this one?”

    You make an incredibly ignorant request. Ask yourself why George Zimmerman and his parents are in hiding.

    I have seen some intellectually challenged posts by the Left on this site but your post approaches the Mongoloid level.

  21. Trent J. Telenko on April 10, 2012 at 5:39 am

    I Am,

    Thank you for proving that cry’s of “Racism” are today’s last refuge for a scoundrel.

    If the kind of “racial results based” University admission score rigging, currently done in against Asians in favor of blacks, were instead done by whites against blacks.

    You would be calling it apartheid.

    And you would be right.

  22. I am on April 10, 2012 at 6:04 am

    Thanks a lot to both of you for proving nothing.

  23. I am on April 10, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Ken I would have thought a smart guy like you would know that claims without evidence are little more then BS. I didn’t make the claim I just asked for the evidence which all I got in response was A crickets and B ad hominems. I have little sympathy for poor Zimmerman and the tough situation killing an unarmed child has put him in. I feel worse for the family of the murdered child and the complete and utter lack of justice they are receiving from the legal justice system.
    ken_phd, Trayvon should have gotten the black talk.” You are so right ken the black man really needs to learn his place in society. Don’t worry though no one will confuse you with an actual racist.

    Trent your post really gets me and how much you feel for those poor Asians who I’m sure in almost any other circumstance you wouldn’t give a damn about. BTW you know that crime mapping site you put the link up to doesn’t show 1 crime in the neighborhood where Zimmerman gunned down the kid right. There look to have been some close by but none in that gated community.

    Trent Telenko, including bringing in recent, politically incorrect but solid, genetic science” I would love to see the source of this “recent” “genetic science” and I’m the scoundrel BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!
