A columnist has been fired from a national magazine after he wrote a 'nasty and indefensible' piece urging his children to stay away from African Americans. John Derbyshire lost his job at the National Review for the article which claimed to be advice he offered to his own children.

In an online piece for Taki's Magazine called 'The Talk: Nonblack version' Derbyshire said to avoid events attended by African-Americans, stay out of certain neighborhoods and scrutinise the character of black politicians.

Fired: Columnist John Derbyshire lost his job at the National Review after posting a racist column online

The conservative columnist wrote the article to weigh in on the debate about racism in America following the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida. Derbyshire, who lives in Long Island, has been universally shunned for the prejudicial piece which also stated that white people are a more intelligent race.
National Review editor Rich Lowry distanced the publication from Derbyshire's article.

In a response, titled Parting Ways, Mr Lowry wrote: 'His latest provocation, in a webzine, lurches from the politically incorrect to the nasty and indefensible. 'We never would have published it, but the main reason that people noticed it is that it is by a National Review writer.

'Derb is effectively using our name to get more oxygen for views with which we’d never associate ourselves otherwise. So there has to be a parting of the ways.'
Fellow writers and columnists have also condemned Derbyshire's views. On the Daily Caller, Matt Lewis wrote: 'Some people aren’t worth the fighting for. Some things are indefensible. This is one of those cases.' Derbyshire has long been known for his provocative opinions and has also targeted immigrants and the gay community in his writing.


That stupid article was pointless anyway. Normal people instinctually tend to avoid feral negroes and the places they inhabit . It's like writing a column advising people to avoid grisly bears. :tard2:
