The real ‘talk’ of the Blacks
By Alec Pierre | Sun, April 15, 2012 - 11:59 PM()
Last Saturday’s editorial of the other paper states inter alia that John Derbyshire, a former writer of the National Review Online, had referred last week to a “non-black version of ‘the talk’ he gave to his own children in which he warned them of the dangers of venturing into all [my emphasis] black communities.
“Mr Derbyshire also contends that a small percentage of Blacks are ferociously hostile to Whites and go to great lengths to inconvenience or harm them. He suggests avoiding areas where large numbers of Blacks are likely to congregate and to avoid predominantly black neighbourhoods”.
Whilst agreeing with the editorial writer that there is no proof that Derbyshire’s version of “the talk” is not a common habit among white Americans, I totally disagree with him where he seems to infer that that same type of “talk” is given by black parents to their children.
The talks given by black parents to their children are almost exclusively concerned with their behaviour when confronted by white policemen who invariably treat Blacks like less than human beings. There is a plethora of statistical information to justify this advice by black parents, which is why there should be an urgent and serious national conversation on race in America.
Voila la difference!
