Derbyshire: Blacks Love White Supremacy

Derbyshire: Blacks Love White Supremacy May 22, 2012

Holy shit, John Derbyshire, now freed from such constraints as the need to use codewords and codephrases to disguise his bigotry, has done everything but put up a Youtube clip of himself in a KKK robe. In a follow up to his earlier endorsement of white supremacy, he now says that black people prefer white supremacy too. Seriously.

What generated the most shrieking and swooning from the guardians of racial orthodoxy in this cycle was this remark in my VDARE.com column:

“White supremacy, in the sense of a society in which key decisions are made by white Europeans, is one of the better arrangements History has come up with.”

On the John Locke principle, though—i.e. “I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts”—the overwhelming majority of black Americans agree with me, and always have. From very early in the Republic, free blacks not only had the opportunity to escape from white supremacy, they were encouraged to do so by abolitionists…

But with all this opportunity and encouragement, how many freed blacks actually chose to escape from under the iron heel of white supremacy? Most sources give 15,000-20,000—out of a Civil War-era black population of around four million. That’s less than half of one percent. Ninety-nine point five something percent preferred white supremacy. That’s an even bigger proportion than voted for Barack Obama in 2008.

“I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.”

Apply John Locke’s apothegm to the sloppy, dishonest, thuggish, anti-intellectual actions of the guardians of racial orthodoxy in today’s America, and you get a pretty good insight into their thoughts.

Un-fucking-believable.
