I'd really like to copy/paste the entirety of this link, because it's really good. But the natural tendency is to just hit the 'back' button when you open a thread and see a huge post. So I'll just paste a bit of it. A couple of days ago, conservative columnist John Derbyshire posted an article called "The Talk: Nonblack Version" for which he has been crucified by the right-wing blogosphere. I had heard Derbyshire's name before, but I didn't know anything about him. He's an occasional contributor to Republican blog National Review. He probably won't be for much longer. In this article, he describes a talk that white parents should have with their children about negroes. The language is very factual and practical, written very much in the style of a legal document. But we all know how truth is seen by the tolerance crowd. Here's a sample: Undoubtedly, his use of the word "swamped" amplified the rage of the anti-racists towards him. Section (10h) probably angered them, too. I've saved a copy of his "Talk" and I intend to share it with my own children some day (without the IWSB part, since it takes only the slightest perceived insult to turn them into monsters).
