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 the Orlando Sentinel.

Yes, talk about the talk is all over.

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 taboo to nonblacks.

(2) American blacks are descended from West African populations, with some white and aboriginal-American admixture. The overall average of non-African admixture is 20-25 percent. The admixture distribution is nonlinear, though: “It seems that around 10 percent of the African American population is more than half European in ancestry.” (Same link.)

(3) Your own ancestry is mixed north-European and northeast-Asian, but blacks will take you to be white.

(4) The default principle in everyday personal encounters is, that as a fellow citizen, with the same rights and obligations as yourself, any individual black is entitled to the same courtesies you would extend to a nonblack citizen. That is basic good manners and good citizenship. In some unusual circumstances, however—e.g., paragraph (10h) below—this default principle should be overridden by considerations of personal safety.

(5) As with any population of such a size, there is great variation among blacks in every human trait (except, obviously, the trait of identifying oneself as black). They come fat, thin, tall, short, dumb, smart, introverted, extroverted, honest, crooked, athletic, sedentary, fastidious, sloppy, amiable, and obnoxious. There are black geniuses and black morons. There are black saints and black psychopaths. In a population of forty million, you will find almost any human type. Only at the far, far extremes of certain traits are there absences. There are, for example, no black Fields Medal winners. While this is civilizationally consequential, it will not likely ever be important to you personally. Most people live and die without ever meeting (or wishing to meet) a Fields Medal winner.

(6) As you go through life, however, you will experience an ever larger number of encounters with black Americans. Assuming your encounters are random—for example, not restricted only to black convicted murderers or to black investment bankers—the Law of Large Numbers will inevitably kick in. You will observe that the means—the averages—of many traits are very different for black and white Americans, as has been confirmed by methodical inquiries in the human sciences.

(7) Of most importance to your personal safety are the very different means for antisocial behavior, which you will see reflected in, for instance, school disciplinary measures, political corruption, and criminal convictions.

(8) These differences are magnified by the hostility many blacks feel toward whites. Thus, while black-on-black behavior is more antisocial in the average than is white-on-white behavior, average black-on-white behavior is a degree more antisocial yet.

(9) A small cohort of blacks—in my experience, around five percent—is ferociously hostile to whites and will go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm us. A much larger cohort of blacks—around half—will go along passively if the five percent take leadership in some event. They will do this out of racial solidarity, the natural willingness of most human beings to be led, and a vague feeling that whites have it coming.

(10) Thus, while always attentive to the particular qualities of individuals, on the many occasions where you have nothing to guide you but knowledge of those mean differences, use statistical common sense:

(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.

(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.

(11) The mean intelligence of blacks is much lower than for whites. The least intelligent ten percent of whites have IQs below 81; forty percent of blacks have IQs that low. Only one black in six is more intelligent than the average white; five whites out of six are more intelligent than the average black. These differences show in every test of general cognitive ability that anyone, of any race or nationality, has yet been able to devise. They are reflected in countless everyday situations. “Life is an IQ test.”


(12) There is a magnifying effect here, too, caused by affirmative action. In a pure meritocracy there would be very low proportions of blacks in cognitively demanding jobs. Because of affirmative action, the proportions are higher. In government work, they are very high. Thus, in those encounters with strangers that involve cognitive engagement, ceteris paribus the black stranger will be less intelligent than the white. In such encounters, therefore—for example, at a government office—you will, on average, be dealt with more competently by a white than by a black. If that hostility-based magnifying effect (paragraph 8) is also in play, you will be dealt with more politely, too. “The DMV lady“ is a statistical truth, not a myth.

(13) In that pool of forty million, there are nonetheless many intelligent and well-socialized blacks. (I’ll use IWSB as an ad hoc abbreviation.) You should consciously seek opportunities to make friends with IWSBs. In addition to the ordinary pleasures of friendship, you will gain an amulet against potentially career-destroying accusations of prejudice.

(14) Be aware, however, that there is an issue of supply and demand here. Demand comes from organizations and businesses keen to display racial propriety by employing IWSBs, especially in positions at the interface with the general public—corporate sales reps, TV news presenters, press officers for government agencies, etc.—with corresponding depletion in less visible positions. There is also strong private demand from middle- and upper-class whites for personal bonds with IWSBs, for reasons given in the previous paragraph and also (next paragraph) as status markers.

(15) Unfortunately the demand is greater than the supply, so IWSBs are something of a luxury good, like antique furniture or corporate jets: boasted of by upper-class whites and wealthy organizations, coveted by the less prosperous. To be an IWSB in present-day US society is a height of felicity rarely before attained by any group of human beings in history. Try to curb your envy: it will be taken as prejudice (see paragraph 13).

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

You don’t have to follow my version of the talk point for point; but if you are white or Asian and have kids, you owe it to them to give them some version of the talk. It will save them a lot of time and trouble spent figuring things out for themselves. It may save their lives.

    I’m a white guy. Most of the points here I agree with.

    But… you’re a smart guy.

    The fact is, (6) is poorly grounded. There is little reason whatsoever to think that any random person’s encounters with “African Americans” will be random. (Maybe a pollster seeking to get “African American” opinion will encounter such a random group, but no one else will.)

    If (6) is wrong, as it seems to be, then (10) seems to be wrong, as stated. Or maybe not precisely as stated. But the insinuation seems to be that “statistics” suggest that the average person will increasingly encounter a “random” selection of the “African American” population. I think that this is clearly the insinuation, as you write it. But this does not follow.

    As I read them, the subsidiary claims to (10) seem to be true, since each of them seems to presume random encounters. But (10) itself seems false.

    The facts seem to indicate that the average non-black American, when encountering a black American, will not be encountering a statistically average black American. That seems to be a fact, and facts matter.

    That leads to a whole different set of difficulties. Lest there be any confusion, I agree with the bulk of what you say.

    Yeah honestly I’ve always felt like the existing educational system in this country was a bit outdated, what with 4 year degrees and general requirements and the likes. I like that people like yourself and the Derb are ever so conscious of the future generation of young minds that need to be educated.

    When all is said and done, I think Mr. Derbyshire’s greatest legacy, surpassing even his work in popular mathematics, will have been his profound contributions to the field of Black Peopleology.

    Let’s replace the standard curriculum taught these days in our high schools and universities, mundane, boring subjects like math, physics, engineering, etc. with a rigorous grounding in the subject of uh Black People, which in case Mr. Derbyshire hasn’t made clear is the Most Important Topic Ever.

    Thank you professor Derbyshire, PhD in Black Peopleology, for your seminal contributions to the field. The Talk: Non-black Version was merely your doctoral thesis. Here’s hoping that you have many more fruitful years left to contribute to the advancement of human knowledge!

    I mostly support racial nationalism for Europe, Africa, and Asia. But when you think about it, North America, South America, and Australia weren’t populated by Europeans as recently as however many hundreds of years ago. Considering that the indigenous people in these lands have more or less been wiped out or been relegated into a permanent underclass due to competition, even considering the multi-cultural madness that seems to be par for the course these days, hard to argue that they didn’t get the worst of things compared to whites, who basically have to deal with increasing immigration to countries formed as a result of a ruthless free-for-all Darwinian orgy of conquest and genocide.

    In The End of History and the Last Man, Fukuyama talks about ideologies that collapse from the weight of their own internal contradictions. This is one of the core contradictions of white nationalism in my opinion. Complaining about immigration and fair play while living in a country only very recently formed through conquest and genocide is kind of like someone breaking into people’s houses, but then later on lecturing to everyone about the right of all individuals to the privacy of their own homes.

    Now, I’m not a huge fan of this new multi-cultural open borders crazy that seems to have captivated so many others in this country today, but I will admit that it’s kind of awkward talking about these things when, as I alluded to, the prior bad behavior of whites towards blacks and the various subjugated indigenous peoples who were totally dispossessed of their lands makes such kind smack every so slightly of hypocrisy. I mean, would you let OJ Simpson lecture to you about the evils of murder?

  9. Yan Shen says:

    Let me add a little to my previous comment. So in a perfect world, everyone would’ve respected each others borders and the major racial and ethnic groups would be largely concentrated in their respective geographic regions of origin. This is why as I stated above, I support racial nationalism for Africa, Asia, and Europe.

    However, this is much harder to argue for in the case of the United States. When I think about it, the country was formed from the interactions of the European settlers who originally came over, the Africans they brought to serve as slaves, and the various Native American tribes originally present in these lands. The idea that America historically has been a predominantly white country is both true and silly at the same time. Sure if you define the boundaries of the country as those lands currently settled by Europeans at any point in time, I suppose that’s a true statement. In actuality though, the Native Americans were slowly wiped out over time in North America as white settlers went from east to west.

    Another awkward fact is that obviously the land that currently is the state of Texas belonged prior to Mexico. White Americans were actually the original illegal immigrants into that land and later on when they outnumbered the Mexicans were able to wrestle control and declare independence. And of course the United States gained significant lands from Mexico as well as a result of the Mexican American War. It’s definitely a bit awkward when Americans now complain about illegal immigration into these states by Mexicans today.

    So unlike some people, I’m less convinced of racial nationalism as a justifiable ideology outside of the confines of Europe, Africa, or Asia.

    Now Mr. Derbyshire will no doubt lecture his kids about the dangers posed by blacks today. And he may not necessarily be wrong. I mean, when it comes to violent disorganized crime, African Americans clearly excel at a level far above other ethnic groups. I wonder though if he were one of the Native Americans facing the oncoming encroachment of white Europeans back in the day, what kind of talk he might’ve had with his kids then?

  10. @Yan Shen

    In the list of countries of the world, I would say off the cuff that the United States is one of the oldest countries of the world. Most of Europe, Russia and China have been reorganized into different political entities since 1776.
    The US, as a nation, is a newer idea and it was certainly formed by whites from Europe. Its our home.

    Instead of trying to equip a 100 pound teenage girl to deal emotionally with the dark skinned 230 lb feral front line of the school football team, how about trying to raise her in an environment where this problem is non-existent. Derb lives on long island which is far too close to the social-justice jungle for my tastes, especially if I had a modest and virgin teenaged daughter.

    The reality is that the majority of teenage girls have been isolated from their fathers in numerous direct and indirect ways, even if the mother has remained a faithful wife and mother. Most female millenials are skanky, tattooed, pierced and wear slutty clothes like yoga pants. They have nothing in common with their fathers.

    As a grandfather, I was disappointed that my last two grand children were female. Sooner, rather than later, the 3rd and 4th wave feminists will gain control of their brains, and like virtually the entire last generation of females, they will not only be worthless to civilization, they will likely accelerate its demise. I just hope they don’t blow the kazoo (talk nasally) like the slutty US girls do.

    So if your daughter supports Obama, LGBT, feminism and the rest of the con, then don’t waste your time on “The Talk”. As I said above, if you really need to give it then it is already too late.

    There is an additional difficulty. What you call ‘the facts’ and what these ‘facts seem to indicate’ so far are nothing more than your own assertions. They may be true, or they may not be. But since you say ‘facts matter’ it would seem to behoove you to introduce some.

    You’re very much enamoured of the notion of collective guilt. Moreover, you practice it selectively, and are quite blind to the hypocrisy that entails. For these reasons, you indeed make a very good ‘social grievance warrior’.

    Meanwhile, even ignoring the internal contradictions of your stance, you haven’t advanced a coherent argument as to why (previously) white societies should commit mass suicide just to satisfy your peculiar version of historical morality. Every piece of land on the globe was ‘wrested’ from someone by someone else, at some point in time. Yet you believe only white people should be divested.

    I have no idea of your background or experience but it appears your only knowledge of American Indians ( Native American is an absurd term since the Indians didn’t magically arise from North American soil) is the glimpse you might have of them at Pine Ridge or on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. The fact is that most American Indians have assimilated and blended in with modern society and are doing quite well. As far as the reservation Indians are concerned, their plight is a self inflicted one. They chose to stay on the rez despite numerous options available,including mostly free college educations, and they pay a price as a result of their desire not to leave their homes.

    You might have qualms about restricting immigration but anyone that has been south of the border knows better. Actually you can just go to the little Mexicos of many American cities if you want to see what un-restricted immigration will do to this country.

  24. Malla says:
    @Yan Shen

    Well the point you raised are based on certain assumptions, that the recent European expansion into the Americas and say Australia/New Zealand is the only one in history. But history is full of such cases where tribes have overcome other tribes militarily and have become the majority.
    For example, look at North Africa, where Arabs have overwhelmed the native Berber populations and have become a major chunk of the population. Should North Africa belong to everyone too? What about Central Asia. Before the Mongol and Islamic expansions, Central Asia was full of Nordic blond White people like



    Where are they now in their original form? (a few survive as Pamiris and the Russians arrived much later). Most of them are mixed with Mongols and muslims from the south and were genetically overwhelmed. Should Central Asia belong to every race now?
    During the bantu expansion a major part of Africa where the Khoi San and pygmies were overwhelmed by the taller Bantus. All of Africa except Cameroon/Nigeria (source of the Bantus) should be open to immigration from everywhere according to your logic.
    You also ignore the other nations of the Americans. What about the Caribbean? The blacks and Indians (in Guyana/Trinidad) are not the natives, yes they arrived as slaves or indentured servants and many blacks in the Caribbean have native American ancestry but that does not change the fact that they are not the real natives. Native Americans are a minority in Guyana and Trinidad but neither will the black brown populations go back to Africa/India, they will never allow unlimited immigration. Indeed during the Haitian crisis, even Barbados and Jamaica put a lot of restrictions on Haitian immigration. Restrictions on fellow blacks from the Caribbean! Anyways I understand why Barbados may do it as Barbados has a much higher standard of living than Haiti and a smaller population, so they were just protecting themselves but should not the Caribbean be open to unrestricted immigration from everywhere? And what about Brazil and Uruguay and Argentina and Venezuela? They should be open to unrestricted immigration too. They are not pure native Americans anymore. But trust me, the local populations of these countries will never agree to it how much ever you try to convince them. What about Taiwan? There the natives have become a minority, Taiwan became majority Han only in the last some centuries and are now 90% of the population. Should Taiwan belong to everyone now? Will the Taiwanese even agree to something like that? What about Irian Jaya in Indonesia where immigrants from other parts of Indonesia are making the native black Papuans a minority in their own land. And the Chittagong Hills of Bangladesh, where colonists/ immigrants from the rest of muslim Bangladesh are making the native Chakma and others a minority in their own ancestral lands. HOW IS THAT DIFFERENT FROM WHITES OVERWHELMING NORTH AMEIRCANS? Chittaging Hill tracts of Bangladesh should belong to all mankind, why should only Bangladeshis get it? Try convincing a Bangladeshi that. What about Mauritius? The Indians and Africans are not native to that land. They should be thankful to Europeans for taking them there and making them the majority. Madagascar? The local population was formed when Malays came from South East Asia and got some blacks from Africa into the island. Madagascar should now belong to every people on Earth,right?

    Actually, you do do sarcasm quite well. But the stats still favour Monsignor Derbyshire’s argument, which, broadly speaking, is that, per capita, blacks are more dangerous to whites than whites are to blacks. Black lives matter, as do white.

  28. Nice talk. I would add a few more:

    1) Don’t choose black doctors. Although there may be a few black doctors who are genuinely smart and qualified for medical school on their own merit, the majority would not have gotten in if it weren’t for massive affirmative action. This is especially true of graduates of elite medical schools like Harvard. The more elite the medical school, the bigger the affirmative action.

    2) Don’t take classes from black professors, the vast majority are affirmative action hires. This is especially true of any class that involves math and science. Only exception is if you take a class in African studies. But don’t take a class in African studies, it’s all propaganda written by Jews. Take a philosophy or music theory class instead.

    3) If I had a daughter, I would definitely advise her to never date a black man. Cheating is the norm among them. They have a hard time staying faithful, even the well educated ones. I would advise my sons to only date a black girl if she is exceptionally intelligent and nice, and not hung up on race.

    Just check out how peoples ebb and flow through 100-year intervals on these maps. Many of these old tribes/cultures/religions were wiped out. It’s the way of the world. The stuff we Americans are taught about Native Americans is highly politicized and weaponized that way, teaching Americans to think in a suicidal way when it comes to preserving our country or culture or heritage. That is done to more easily enslave, control and dominate us — they teach us to do it to ourselves. Nothing is stronger than belief and the U.S. is nothing if not an example of a hugely successful propaganda campaign waged on a people to destroy themselves so corporations and oligarchs can rule. It’s already too late for America, I believe, unfortunately. Unless we have massive deportation/repatriation programs and an immigration moratorium. But I can’t see that happening because brainwashed Americans are ready to war against their own countrymen for the right to destroy their own future in this land, to erase their heritage, freedom and livelihoods.

    You don’t sound as if you’ve lived around concentrated numbers of blacks. I have. It’s like this:

    Crime Data

    Interracial felony killings in SC in 2017

    100% of all St. Louis murder suspects for 2017 are black

    Stop believing the lying MSM. Protecting and decriminalizing criminal behavior by blacks (e.g., Black Lives Matters getting people all riled up after police shoot a drug dealer who tries to hit police with their car and then leads police on high speed chase and shoots at them) will create a society that no one wants to live in. Like black-ruled Africa or Haiti.

    He said that he does not agree with racial nationalism for North America, that does not imply he meant unresrticted migration from other countries. You can be a civic nationalist and oppose migration too.

    If whites want an ethno state then they should go to the pacific north West make an ethno state there. If that is the case, then blacks should be entittled an ethno state in the Missisipia Delta, The Chicanos entittled to Atzlan, and the eastern coast be multi racial.

    Being a “mathematics ace” can sometimes mislead someone when it comes to predicting what will happen in actual human life, and it may be that this is what is happening with you and Mr. Derbyshire here.

    I believe there is reasonable evidence that shows that, ceteris paribus, humans become quite habituated as they age. (I think this happens unless they take active measures to counter this. Some do. Most don’t. I think. By all means counter me on this claim if you think you have evidence!)

    If humans tend to get habituated, they are likely to get better at increasing their encounters with those they prefer and decreasing their encounters with those they do not prefer. Most middle-upper class whites and Asians do not prefer encounters with lower class blacks, and learn how to avoid them. They get systematically better at this.

    In some ways, what I am saying here actually aligns with what Derbyshire says. But some of this happens unconsciously. It seems that middle-upper class whites and Asians will actually decrease the number of lower class blacks they encounter, even if they are not actively seeking this.

    You are somewhat correct on (6). People tend to choose their environments carefully so the odds of a middle/upper middle class white or Asian to meet statistically random blacks in their daily lives seems unlikely. They will seek out areas in which a middle/upper middle class white or Asian would feel comfortable, which are likely not the places most blacks would feel comfortable.

    However, your assertion begins to run into a couple of problems, in particular in relation to Derb’s (10). But even before (10), there’s the issue that in our daily lives, we are often in environments not of our choosing. So if I work downtown, I’ll be exposed to a much more random selection of blacks than I would be in my safe neighborhood. The same is true for many aspects of life, which leads to Derb’s (10).

    Derb’s points tend to focus on very public environments, ones where large numbers come into play. Amusement parks, fairs, ball games, government agencies that we must deal with, etc., those are the areas where one should use statistical averages to make decisions.

    But I push that idea further and say that one should use statistical averages and regession to the mean when evaluating even individuals of any color, at least when it will impact you and your family’s lives. There’s a reason that parents used to ask, “Well, does he (or she) comes from a good family” when evaluating potential husbands (wifes) for their children.

    My classic example is the “nice black family” that moves into the neighborhood. Salt of the earth, great people, but, sadly, also a potential danger. “Why?” you ask. “They’re such good people.” Quite true. But what will their children be like. They will regress to the black mean, which means lower test scores and higher propensity to violence – on average. Also, what about nice black family’s relatives who may come to visit or live. What about the blacks who are encouraged to live in your neighborhood because of this beachhead. More people means moving closer to the statistical mean.

    Of course, none of that may happen in this one case. Perhaps, nice black family comes from families that are far above the black statistical mean and thus their children are regressing to a different mean. Perhaps no relatives come to live. Perhaps no other black families start to move in. That’s entirely possible, but that doesn’t change the fact that the nice black family is a statistical danger.

    One very well may not be a problem but with each family, the odds that bad things will start to happen grow dramatically.

    Derb is right.

    Yes I understand what you mean. If Whites would want an ethno state in North America, blacks and Native Americans will have to be given their parts too, as well as a mixed region would have to be set up. But many White nationalist separatists have always been cool with that. I was reading such a proposal being discussed on White separatist website of Amren several years ago and the proposal did talk about a black USA nation, independent native American nations and a mixed state along with the White USA nation. George Lincoln Rockwell of the American Nazi Party was also of the opinion that blacks in the USA deserve a region/nation of their own most probably somewhere in the South.

  38. @Third world nationalist

    If whites want an ethno state then they should go to the pacific north West make an ethno state there.

    Have that. Moved to the Boston region in 2009 when my old home town outside DC became a gangbanger’s Disneyland amidst pretty substantial wealth. Plenty prosperous up here, no Blacks, the Hispanics fill what’s left of the Catholic Churches, send their kids to school, few of them speak Spanish, even to themselves out playing, in the stores, they all speak English up here. Fairfax County, Virginia however, has become far and away more representative of and filthy with the former inhabitants of India, Pakistan and China, Japan and Korea than the old South it actually was just 40 years ago. And the Hispanics and Vietnamese were pouring in, are still. Fairfax is top 2 or 3 in household income but a lot of it is in immigrant and foreign hands and so most service and technical functions are staffed by a highly racist and patriarchal Indian cabal and has been ruled so for over 20 years.

    While the Jews are tip-top in the defense industry around DC, these Indian ‘minorities’ are the folks at Freddie and Fannie (and all their crooked allies) that originated, settled worthless mortgages and then invented and packaged up Mortgage Securities and dealt them the world over through crooked brokerages. One thing they do in the big cities is they bring in their own. And to notice it is Ray-Ciss of course. I don’t buy into the H1 situation, there far too many illegals from India working throughout technical, financial and governmental agencies, H1’s don’t explain the darkening of whole regions of every city in this country. Indians take EEOC VERY seriously for themselves. They broke off a nice slice of racial privilege for themselves here. And it was THEY who set up the chain that brought us that disaster. So with the filthy conditions the Hispanics, Indians and Pakis bring, bailing to the Pac NW or New England region gives you your White, ethno-state lifestyle. Leave DC to the Jews, Muslims and migrants if you’re White, they hate Whites there, anyway. Up here, I think the races just HATE cold weather and so there are few Blacks and Southern-style immigrants. Some, not many. You can actually have a Merry Christmas here.

    Ethnostates aren’t going to be made or “set up” however, people have to migrate. But no matter what, Whites will always build the more civilized and higher-quality life. And then? We fuck it all up and share, dissipate and ruin it by letting in the races. Then we move and build anew and do it all over again. Throughout, they hate us, yet, they follow us, everywhere, like rodents. Show me where I’m wrong.

    You’re not wrong. However, take a look at Chicago or Milwaukee or Detroit. If you think bad whether will keep out non-whites, you’re crazy.

    Build it and they will come.

    Btw, the only Jews that I know who have turned on the issue of immigration are Fairfax County Jews. The Indians and Chinese have begun moving into their neighborhoods and schools and competing fiercely against their children. What’s more, the Asians and Indians use every angle to move up both economically and politically. In essence, the Asians and Indians act like Jews, and the Jews really, really don’t like it.

    What’s more, the Asians and Indians are to some degree beating the Jews at their own game. Jews still have the brain power but many of them have lost their edge due to growing up soft and intermarrying with soft-hearted gentiles. The Asians and Indians are hungrier.

    White gentiles, of course, just continue to play their role of the Eloi, though this being the DC area, most of the whites are smart enough to fly above all of the ethnic infighting between Jews, Asians and Indians. Too good to get their hands dirty, so to speak. It won’t last. The whites will shrink over time until either we disappear or we wake up and realize that our shit stinks just like everyone else and that we have to fight for our place in this world.

    Ignorance, in general and in particular about the history of nations and ethnicities, enables you to say that America and Australia are the exceptions to other racially purer peoples and nations. Not so, and you can find that out for yourself if you care to spend even a little time reading up on world history.

    The people of India, for example, are a mixture of wave upon wave of migrations from central Asia. One wave would displace the earlier “purer Indians”, and then they in turn would be displaced by another group. The Han Chinese are not as racially pure as they imagine themselves to be. There has been significant infusion of Mongol blood from the North, mixture of Cambodian, Vietnamese and other Asian blood from the Asian neighbors, and no doubt plenty of mixing up with Koreans as well – themselves mixed-up with Japanese and Central Asians. The proper Englishman, no doubt proud of his Englishness, has inherited some of his Englishness from the Romans.

    What defines to be Chinese, or English, or French, or Asian-Indian is not only race but also national consciousness, pride, and the strength and power of a nation-state to be able to assert uniqueness of identity. And it is this unique American identity that is presently under attack. This identity will evolve and change over centuries, as all groupings have, but attempts to fast-track a morphing into something else (a cute, multi-culti, multi-racial, multi-sexed amalgam?) is not only plain stupid but also a call to commit national hara-kiri. Unless mass stupidity descends upon most Americans – and there are ominous and dark clouds portending that – I don’t see white America slipping away into oblivion to make place for hordes of Africans, Latinos, and Asians. So your invitation to white America to fade away is very likely to elicit a reply back along the same lines.

    It’s brilliant when you think about. They can act as race realist as they want – move to white neighborhoods, send their kids to overwhelmingly white/Asian schools, have white friends and co-workers, etc. – and never have to admit to what they’re doing.

    Indeed, they can attack you if you bringing up their decisions. “Why, I never even looked at racial make-up of the area when we decided to move here. Why would I? I just looked for an area that looked nice and had good schools. This area could just as easily have been black or Hispanic. It didn’t matter to me. Why are you so racist?

    As Steve Sailer once said, we’re slowly trying to work our way back to the level of knowledge on genetics that every grandmother had in the 19th century.

    The Nice Black Family example shows why people used to defer to their elders for long-term decisions. Idealistic young people generally stick to Stage One thinking. They’re not good at moving to Stage Two and Stage Three thinking. No one asks the question, “And then what will happen?” Or the follow-up, “And what happens after that?”

    Older people naturally ask those questions because they’ve seen what happens when they don’t. It can make them look hard and inflexible to younger people when, in fact, the elders are the ones avoiding pain – for all sides – down the road.

    The Pacific NW is a total goner. Gone are the days of mostly people of Nordic descent who worked for Boeing. Microsoft and Amazon brought in the Indian horde by the hundreds of thousands. Now many of them are running for office, all are hardcore progressives who campaigned on more diversity and more “affordable housing” aka apartments, so more hispanics and blacks can move into previously lily white suburbs. Meanwhile the corrupt government officials of mainland China who got priced out of Vancouver real estate all came down here, buying up all the homes. Seattle is now the hottest real estate market in the country, at least 1/3 of homes sold in the Seattle area are to mainland Chinese, a good number are left vacant and then resold a year later, total money laundering scheme.

    Bellevue, the largest city across from Seattle is now minority majority. All the elementary schools on the East side are now at least 50% Asian, evenly split between Chinese and Indian. On any given day you walk into the local library or community center and you’d think you’ve landed in Beijing or Mumbai. The University of Washington is now at least 40% Asian, including 15% international students, over half from China alone. UW, Microsoft and some university in China recently opened a new joint technology campus in Bellevue, so they can bring even more Chinese to Bellevue. Indian women are the most horrible drivers, and they double park!

    PNW is another paradise lost. The mainland Chinese are abominable neighbors. Most do not speak any English, are rude and crass, do not take care of their yards or their houses. Their kids act like spoiled brats in school and have the most horrible table manners. I’ve often wondered what visa they have, can’t possibly all have green cards or EB5, are they living here on tourist visa? All their homes are purchased with cash. Congress needs to crack down on this shit. Fucking Obama gave them tourist visa good for 10 years. We need to return it to 3 months, and end the EB5 now!

    “Right” is an opinion. What “right” did the Europeans have to take over North and South America and wipe out the natives (granted, mostly through their germs but still). What “right” did the Sioux have to take over lands of other native tribes?

    Their right was that they wanted the land and were capable of taking it and holding it. Simple as that.

    I do believe in morality and “right and wrong” within a society/tribe, but once you step outside your tribe, those ideals become much more flexible. Personally, I just want peaceful self-determination for all peoples, no need to bash anybody’s head in.

They were intent that not a single person survived.

    Is Tamerlan Tsarnaev Named After a Brutal Warlord?

    Amir Temur, also known as Tamerlane, was a Central Asian ruler and warlord who lived in the 14th and 15th centuries. Scholars estimate that his military campaigns throughout Central Asia, Africa, Europe, and the modern Middle East killed about 17 million people, or 5 percent of the world’s population at the time.
    Should probably avoid these regions in particular, to not to import all these wannabe Genghis Khans:

    Source: 1 in 200 Men Direct Descendants of Genghis Khan [likely a low-activity MAO-A aka “warrior gene” carrier]

    The Rehabilitation Of Tamerlane

    The Tamerlane coffee-table book counters reassuringly that its hero “had no intention to take possession of the world.” His subjugation of what are now Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, southern Russia, Syria, India and elsewhere, like his final, unrealized campaign to China that ended with his death in 1405, were driven mostly by a desire to help the oppressed and build civilizations, the book claims.

    The book indicates he was also a great thinker (experts say he probably was illiterate), and a pocket version of “The Utterances of Amir Temur” (with, naturally, an introduction by Karimov) collects his wisdom along the lines of Mao Tse-tung’s Little Red Book.

    Goodbye Lenin, Hello Timur


    Genghis Khan killed so many people, that it was actually good for the environment, new study claims

    The wars led in his name killed some 40 million people (about 10% of the world’s population at the time)! But, as a new study showed, these bloody conquests helped the environment – removing nearly 700 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere.

    While the Mongol ruler wasn’t even thinking about it, he was causing the first man-made global cooling.

    War, Plague No Match for Deforestation in Driving CO2 Buildup

    “We found that during the short events such as the Black Death and the Ming Dynasty collapse, the forest re-growth wasn’t enough to overcome the emissions from decaying material in the soil,” says Pongratz. “But during the longer-lasting ones like the Mongol invasion and the conquest of the Americas there was enough time for the forests to re-grow and absorb significant amounts of carbon.”

    First, the black version of “the talk” isn’t about whites in general being dangerous to blacks–it’s about police being dangerous to them. Obviously that’s because the police deal with black violence and criminality every day, but law-abiding blacks do have to take special care to avoid being treated like criminals.

    Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians.

    This isn’t one of those situations where you have nothing but statistics to go by. If you’ve done your research on a city and found it to be a good place to live, and it has a black mayor who’s been in office long enough to mess it up if he was going to, why not move there?

    Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white.

    I dunno. . . seems to me that if you’re expecting character flaws in a black politician, you won’t need to look as hard to find them as you would at a white with the same flaws. Besides, do you really care about a politicians character? “He’s a sonofabitch, but he’s my sonofabitch” is a perfectly valid sentiment.

    You should consciously seek opportunities to make friends with IWSBs.. . . you will gain an amulet against potentially career-destroying accusations of prejudice.

    No, I’m afraid you won’t. People who claimed “some of my best friends are ____” were seen as closet racists back when the polite way to fill in the black was “Negroes”.

  78. Svigor says:

    True dat.

    But a people shouldn’t have to be encouraged to survive. My suspicion is that the white herd – after centuries having little to no competition – needs a bit of culling.

    I’m sure every herd could use a culling. But let’s not pretend the White herd hasn’t been carefully and expertly indoctrinated over generations. The fact is, Whites (with very few exceptions) don’t even have the mental framework to process “survival” in the sense we’re discussing. They don’t see the genocide. They have been indoctrinated to scoff at the very idea. Hell, there are tons of Whites on our side of the fence who are opposed to mass immigration on cultural and other non-racial grounds, and they can’t process survival in the sense we’re discussing, either.

    As for culling, that is precisely what’s happening, in relatively slow motion. Eventually, if the process isn’t stopped, the only Whites left will be the “racist” Whites. With the idiot sheep genes culled, the population bottleneck will have been passed through, and a new, hardened White race will be able to flourish and grow. (Actually I think it will be a matter of the hardened Whites becoming a large enough percentage of the White population to effect their dominance over the remaining idiot sheep Whites)

    Vinteuil: that one isn’t mine, but I agree, it rings.

    but law-abiding blacks do have to take special care to avoid being treated like criminals.

    Yes, because police have to take special care with blacks due to their insane levels of violence.

    Law-abiding blacks should be having the “Talk” with their kids about the ridiculous levels of violence in the black community and how their kids should be a hell of a lot more afraid of other blacks than the police, but that, yes, you have to be extra cautious and courteous with the police because the police deal day in and day out with your jungle-minded cousins and therefore are very quick to put a black man to the ground because otherwise that police officer might not make it home that night.

    If blacks had any honesty, they would admit this. But they don’t. That or they are too stupid to figure it out. Either way . . .

    Thank you!!! This proves everything that I’ve been saying. This also reveals what VDare is really about. Derbyshire has been writing with a forked pen for years and very few people call him out on this. This is because Jews have high intermarriage rates with blacks/Asians. And VDare has a lot of semitophiles in its organization. The idea that a white man can write about saving the West when his Chinese wife and daughter voted for Obama reveals the degeneracy of this man. Big picture, I still don’t blame the Jews for all the problems in world. I put the blame on the RCC/Zioevangizers/Freemasons who give the Jews their “power.” If you believe in “universal brotherhood,” which leads to the belief in the equality of people, your organization is a non-starter. I left the RCC because I don’t accept black/Asian priests-popes.

    We know that world history can be summed up in 2 words: IQ. You need to have an IQ of 90+ to have a functioning society. Then there is the Faustian spirit that exists only in Caucasians. We know what destroyed the ancient Egyptians (Caucasians) and ancient Aryan Indians, mixing with blacks/Asians. This requires deportation/separation from these groups. A person cannot marry someone very different from him. He will be compromised. I don’t have problems with the Christian Arabs from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan. They are Caucasian and Western and assimilate very easily to the West. Ralph Nader and his brilliant siblings are an example. The high-caste (and high IQ) Euro-mestizos of Latin America are another example. They are small in number and assimilate easily. But this leaves out blacks/Chinese, Vietnamese, Thais etc. Just the people Derbyshire would side with.

    The Mexicans of which you speak of, in Texas, were Spaniards, just as they were in California, and Louisiana. When I hear people lament, particularly Latinos, about this or that being “stolen” or from “our people”, 90 percent of the time it is from mestizos that would have been looked down upon by the very “Mexicans” they speak of. Those early Mexicans running the Mexican government, and most positions of power were blue bloods, and in fact there was a very distinct caste system, much of which was the cause of issues between Texas and Mexico (and btw, you are also wrong about the White settlers, they were WELCOMED by the white Mexican government proper, in the first place).

    and he is calling Black people scary now?

    incredible! the man has lost his memory. and he really thinks that he is exceptional..that he can do as he wishes for centuries on the planet without any equal and opposite reactions that catches up with him at some point

    sweet! the white man created the entire suicidal mess that is america, with a global reach that will surely take the human species down with it. the white capitalist man has not stopped. he has simply stopped taking care of ordinary white people because he thinks he does not need then anymore as he used to.

    now our old white man here whom the system no longer needs, has used up, is crying bawling with nothing and and one to turn to, wrapped up in his old white propaganda and resulting insane exceptionalism that he cant eat or use to defend himself against his former victims. and no white cavalry is riding up to save him

    oh how silly it is. you all made some Black people into animals…the intention was to make all Black people into animals but we are sturdier than that. but Black animals and low IQ are the results of centuries of white exploitation and utter emotional devastation of American Black people. a whole lot of us are still broken and will be for some time until massive correction is undertaken

    but it is white ordinary people who are in trouble..tossed by the system and totally unprepared for a world in which they are equal and that no one cares..least of all the white system, deep state etc. their plans long past ordinary white people and systematic racism. it was never about racism but about social control. now that social control is achieved in other ways the capitalist do not need systematic racism no more. He wont clean it up..he just does not need it and have left the mess t on the ground for the victims to deal with..which includes white ordinary people

    isn’t it sweet!

    this is a stupid thread.. low level discussion. no matter what the society involved there is always the TALK for parents to do with their children, to give the their best survival chances. that was always the case and will always be a need in society..the job or parents to teach and guide their children. we can and must and do take that for granted. the fact that Derbyshire has turned it into racist nonsense is more of the same propaganda that keeps the people misdirected, inaccurately focused and led to slaughter. this issue here is not the problem in the USA at all, at all

    the question is how to solve the mess that is America..that is the problem..before it kills us all. and for that to take place the capitalists must be removed from power and capitalism revolutionized. that’s it. Derbyshire and his pal Kesey are fiddling while Rome burns..calling people to dance rather than how to get water to douse the fire

    humanity is on the verge of nuclear war, awash in propaganda that ties up the human mind, flush with religious nonsense that justifies all the evil on the of education that produces graduates trained in the plunder of the rest of humanity..for that is the system by which global society lives under PLUNDER! FINANCIAL PLUNDER!

    and there is absolutely no way out for ordinary people for capitalism is all about profit not god outcomes for those who work and produce the wealth that is transferred away from them into the pockets of the few

    there can be no good social outcome from capitalism. capitalism has been on place for a long time now and there have been no good outcomes for the people. if so when will there be good outcomes? there cant be….that is not the point and purpose of capitalism.

    an every time a nation gets up and tries to do better the white race attacks them. beats them to a pulp, murders millions and forces the situation back under their control which is to control the finances of every nation by taking their dollar and banking system an using it to bleed them.

    that is the insane world white people have created..with massive weapons everywhere and offensive scientific manipulations and weapons that they will surely unleash on the planet if and when they are losing

    and white people have lied about everything..the history of humanity in particular. they have lied to keep the people foolish..both white and Black people..indeed all the people of the world.

    that and so much more destructive crap is what the white people have built on planet earth. and this is what you sit back and sing praises to?

    The DSM ( the book the psychiatrists and psychologists use for diagnosis) does not use the terms sociopathy and psychopathy but I still use the terms because they make the best sense. We have too many fools rearranging textbooks and diagnostic manuals.

    I wish I was more in tune with how people operated when I was young. I am now in my 70s but I learned a whole lot over the past 30 years.
    In the late 60s when I was in the Marines I had a sixth sense about physical danger and when I was anywhere near what we would call unconcerned or sociopathic high rankers I got a strange feeling which was part of my internal warning system which let me know when people were up to no good. I just couldn’t seem to verbalize very well. I just knew (like lots of other people are able to do). The Unz Review has commenters who seem to be able to explain things, and older age helps because we see the same patterns in life. Some are blessed at a young age with the ability to see through the lies and bullshit.

    The white collar sociopaths seem to be able to very quickly detect those of us who see through their actions. Women who are up to no good also seem to sense those of us who see through their selfish and dangerous intentions.

    If pressed, I point out that no Australian conman who got into the banks for less than a billion Australian dollars is known of by the Australian public because it isn’t reported by the Australian media. Too trivial after the big ten in the 1980s.

    The Queensland police stated publicly in the 1990s that they wouldn’t even investigate any swindle of less than half a million. Vigorously encouraging training and ambition didn’t produce a single Aboriginal bank or general community swindler. Family organised corruption in Aboriginal projects and businesses is a completely different matter with the victims being other Aborigines. [email protected]

    There is an additional difficulty. What you call ‘the facts’ and what these ‘facts seem to indicate’ so far are nothing more than your own assertions. They may be true, or they may not be. But since you say ‘facts matter’ it would seem to behoove you to introduce some.

    Its refreshing to finally hear someone speak the truth publicly. I mean its not like kids are being indoctrinated in our schools, book shops, commercials, movies to hate whites now is it?

  135. Pringles says:

    I see you were paying close attention to your woke indoctrination classes. You know whats amazing…. you so called, woke people, dont understand that youre not free, thinkers like you try to profess you are, you are simply pawns regurgitating everything your professors have laid upon you on a daily basis. Your replies are all similar, different wording, same message. White man bad, white man kills and takes over, white man to blame for all blacks problems. When will you get it that your hand has been over played and you need to start taking responsibility for your own lives, instead of trying to blame everything on one race. Use more critical thinking skills.

    I am an average white guy who received “the talk” from my father in the early 60’s. A bit of history, my father was Southern, my mother Northern. I lived in New England but frequently visited in the South. “The Talk” was episodic. Around age 12, I began to encounter a large number of blacks, for instance most barbers were black, as were many carpenters, brick masons and landscapers.. I was cautioned about those matters I should speak with them about. As I recall, mostly matters involving my family, probably others which escaped my recollection. When I got my driver’s license, and would be driving in the South, my father cautioned me against giving a lift to black hitchhikers, explaining that I would only “embarrass them”. In no event was any hostility to blacks mentioned. I suppose an acceptance of things as they were was implied.

    Other recollections from that era. The “N-word” was more frequently heard in the North than the South. The now archaic “Coloreds” being much preferred. Discourtesy to blacks might not get you shunned, but it was “impolite”. I have to admit that the still prevailing Jim Crow made me uncomfortable, particularly since I expected to “give way” to adults. I am sure many civil rights were violated, but at that age I wouldn’t have recognized it.

    One bit of advice my father used to give, was, always request a brand new bottle of catchup in diners, greasy spoons, coney’s etc.

    He’d witnessed way too many black families allow their kids to run wild. He told me their chilluns would lick the bottle.

    I taught 6th grade in a majority black public school with a black principal.

    Genocide against the Gauls? Are all wars of conquest genocides by definition? I guess that’s arguable.

    But Gauls were becoming full Roman citizens from at least the 1st Century BC onward, contributing countless legionnaires, many equites and even Senators. I’ve read historians with multicultural values depicting the resistance of conservative Romans to Julius Caesar’s proposal to allow Gallic Senators as a “lesson for our time.” Not much later, a Gaul became Emperor. And not too long after that, the Empire began to disintegrate under its own sprawling multicultural weight. The Gauls even got their own Roman Empire for a few centuries.

    Worst genocide ever. Well, unless you count the Holocaust, which seems to be leading to similar results in an even shorter time frame.

    Letter to Harvard Community 19 April

    Harvard University – Office of the President
    Dear Members of the Harvard Community,


    Recent weeks have brought yet more devastating tragedies across our nation. The heartbreaking killings of Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright, two young people who had so much of their lives yet to live, and the gut-wrenching testimony recounting George Floyd’s final minutes, have focused this country again on the killings of African Americans and other people of color by police. The list of those whose names we know is long, and a full list would include many others whose names we do not know, and whose deaths did not occur in broad daylight, in full view of multiple witnesses, or with cell phone or body cameras recording.

    No words can capture the hurt, fear, anger, and grief felt about these tragedies by so many in our community, across this country, and around the world. It is appalling and unjust that people in our nation, by virtue of the color of their skin, face a greater risk of being killed in a police encounter if they are driving with an expired tag or a burnt-out taillight, if they make a rolling stop, if they somehow arouse a store clerk’s suspicion, or if they are just coming home from a family dinner.

    The terrible impact of these tragedies goes far beyond the lives lost, children deprived of their parents and parents deprived of their children. In a system in which police have vast discretion to stop people on suspicion of minor offenses, so many people of color in this country live with an ever-present sense of vulnerability because of the possibility that a police encounter will result in tragedy.

    Harvard’s motto, Veritas, requires a commitment to truth. The truth is that racism runs through the history of the United States and continues to have deadly effects on people of color in this country today. The truth is that our society is far from eradicating the evil of racism, whatever the verdict in the latest trial.

    We, as a community, must stand against racism. We must commit ourselves to the unfinished work of building a just society—one in which everyone’s rights and safety are protected, and everyone’s dignity is honored.

    But what you are is a cowardly, non-White cuck, posting as “anon,” and I’ll bet a lot of money you live in a mostly-White neighborhood.

    Before you call Derb an idiot, I want you to do an experiment of late-night walks through White neighborhoods, and then do the same in black neighborhoods. If you survive the latter, by all means, relocate to one of those black areas, and put your kids in the local schools. You have no credibility til you walk the walk. Then come back in a couple years and tell us about your experiences, and how we’re all the human race and thus the same. . LOL.

    The original state of Texas was Comanche. Santa Ana offered large free homesteads to Americans as a cheap way for him to defend San Antonio. Americans were invited to civilize Texas. And they did.

  150. These points should be taken and acted upon by every human, ( read white here), American.
    The negroe primate is as violent and predatory as any chimp or baboon, our two races are not compatable. I personally make it a point to avoid any place where blacks congregate, or tend to visit.

    I agree. How many white people would rather their car broke down in an Asian or white area rather than majority black?!!!

  153. I do not dispute any of your claims but I find eerie similarities between Point 9 of yours

    (9) A small cohort of blacks—in my experience, around five percent—is ferociously hostile to whites and will go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm us. A much larger cohort of blacks—around half—will go along passively if the five percent take leadership in some event. They will do this out of racial solidarity, the natural willingness of most human beings to be led, and a vague feeling that whites have it coming.

    and some real situation in the world today:

    A small cohort of white Westerners—in my experience, around 10 percent—is ferociously hostile to the Chinese and will go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm the latter. A larger cohort of such whites—around 35%—will go along actively if the five percent take leadership in some event. Another 50% will do so passively. They will do this out of racial solidarity, the natural willingness of most human beings to be led, and a vague feeling that the Chinese have it coming.

    That leaves only about 5% of white Westerners who are willing to examine the rights and wrongs of the events critically.

    Nation stealing was going on for millenia before DeSoto got here.

    The same is true for people stealing from other people!!!

    We’re only the most recent group to claim this particular piece of ground.

    NO! You are NOT “the most recent group”. New immigrant, legal or illegal, are arriving everyday.

    I couldn’t tell you if we’ve had it longer than any before. Someone will have it after us. But right now it is ours.

    Yes, “Someone will have it after you.” The non-whites are in the process of repossessing the land of America. So, enjoy it while you can.

  157. I believe it’s not difficult to find in Africa some bright kids to invite to US universities. They could well grow up to be model citizens. I’ve read that in Japan they prefer African blacks to US blacks. At my university, we’ve had some very respectable African students. I’ve read that among the Nigerians, the Ibo (or Igbo) are quite bright. Go over there with a stack of IQ tests. Try them out and offer scholarships to some of them. American companies operating in Africa can also offer you some tips. Companies can get stuck with hiring family members of politicians, but some companies sometimes have a way of finding good ones.

  161. Vinnie O says:

    “The Talk”, at least amongst White people, is an explanation of the basics of male-female intercourse and pregnancy. This is typically given to your children when they’re around 13 years old.

    No White person I’ve ever heard of bothers to give a “talk” to their children about Negroes. This is especially true if you live surrounded by White neighbors. I grew up living next to Robbins, IL, a suburban Black slum. NO ONE thought it was worth the trouble to discuss Robbins itself or the people who lived there. Although I was told that the Robbins Chief of Police was arrested (by the Illinois State Police) for RUNNING a stolen car ring.

    But in general, the Chicago Metro area had enough Negroes on the streets and in stores and such that White people could tell by simple observation what Negroes were like. A good example is the movie “Blues Brothers”. The car chase scenes were filmed inside a shopping mall that was ABANDONED when White shoppers decided that there were too many Black shoppers there. And of course it isn’t possible to attract stores to a mall with no White shoppers. Think about that: you shop in YOUR stores; we’ll shop in ours.

    Separate but “equal” is the way to go.

  162. MoiMyself says:

    From 1 to 5 I thought, yeah, wokey-bla bla, I would have other concerns — and then comes the rest, culminating in 10a-z, which unfortunately has to be told as well. Good job. Sad but true stats. Living in Europe, I would substitute Muslim for Black, and then same same.

    However, especially for girls, typically “The Talk” is more about procreation and its avoidance.

    Another point:
    US Blacks and EU Muslims are considered THE problem by absolutely all other groups, be it whites, asians, christians, atheists etc. – except of course (both cases) by woke green liberals.

  163. @Lawrence Fitton

    On a risk adjusted basis, avoiding negros is just as sensible as avoiding processed meats etc. The latter at least have some gustatory appeal.
