Shorter John Derbyshire

John Derbyshire has been fired from National Review for writing a completely politically incorrect piece entitled The Talk:  Nonblack Version. Pretty strong stuff.

Short version:

There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.Jesse Jackson

Read this piece by Heather Mac Donald, too.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.  —  George Orwell

UPDATE: EXCELLENT discussion of the topic over at RobertaX’s place.

UPDATE II: Eric S. Raymond (and his commenters) have some interesting things to say as well. Take Eric’s quiz. At least one commenter here has failed it.
