Having lived in the South most of my life, I know from experience that racists don’t need to hide their racism with code words or dog whistles. They unabashedly wear their racism on their sleeves—almost as a badge of honor! They openly complain about the blacks and the Hispanics and anyone else who isn’t lily white like good ol’ Jesus (who was actually an Arab Jew, but don’t tell them that!) while sprinkling their racial diatribes with the n-word or w-word.
So yes, even with the first African-American in the White House, racism and bigotry still exist (as they always have since early man could distinguish between skin color, and as they always will considering human nature never changes). But they’re not hidden behind “code words” as libtarded moonbats would have you believe: they’re out in the open.
Case in point: columnist John Derbyshire (whose political beliefs are surprisingly left-of-center) was fired from the National Review after releasing a screed that basically barrels down to “All black people are evil; avoid them at all costs!”
No, I’m not making that up.
In his racial diatribe, Derbyshire argues that most blacks are “anti-social,” “ferociously hostile towards whites,” and overall have lower IQs. (His evidence for all of this? The long discredited Bell Curve, of course!) Because of all of this, they pose a serious threat, as they “will go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm us [white folk].” He then offers the following advice:
(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.If you find it shocking that someone like Derbyshire would write something overtly bigoted, don’t! This man has a long history of spewing bigoted vitriol: he believes women shouldn’t be allowed to vote because they’re naturally socialist (what about Veronique de Rugy?), that Obama hates science because it proves that blacks like him are genetically-inferior, that women are only attractive from age 15 to 20 (in other words, for only two years after age of consent), and that the Virginia Tech students were cowards for not fighting back (I wish I were kidding there!).
(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.
(10f) Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians.
(10g) Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white.
(10h) Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway.
(10i) If accosted by a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving.
Do I believe this bigot should have been fired? No. Even hate speech is free speech. This worm had every right to say what he said; however, that doesn’t mean he has a right to be taken seriously—and no one should have taken this man seriously, including his editors.
