John Derbyshire: A Good And Brave Man [Updated Below]
[NOTE: I’m sticking this post to the top of the Dispatches column for the next day or so, so please check below for newer postings.]
I am not ready to comment as of yet on the controversy being generated by John’s recent piece* over at Taki Magazine on what he would advise his children about dealing with Black people — I’m still gathering all of my thoughts [which regular readers of these Dispatches know is a slow process].
However, I wanted to state for the record a few things immediately:
1) John Derbyshire is not a raaaaacist. He is a good and honorable man.
2) Unlike so many others on the Right, John has a testicular fortitude that they only wish they had.
3) Don’t buy into the Leftist Narrative being crafted to divert your attention away from the Left’s vile behavior in the Trayvon Martin shooting and their attempt to bring down another intrepid soul on the Right.
While you’re awaiting my brain to kick in, please check out these insightful postings:

the links John provided, of course, won’t work in that
UPDATE at 1441…
I was able to get the article to come up over at
Taki, so I copied it, including all of John’s links,
and have published it on a TCOTS page here.
