Fellow "white" Americans, address this talk to your kids:
your fellow citizens are forty million who identify as black.
2 American blacks are descended from West African populations.
own ancestry is mixed, but blacks will take you to be white.
default principle is that a black fellow citizen is entitled to the same
courtesies you would extend to a nonblack citizen.
5 Like any human
group, blacks vary. There are black geniuses and black morons, black saints
and black psychopaths.
6 Among black Americans, many traits have very
different means (averages) for blacks and whites.
7 They have very
different means for antisocial behavior.
8 Many blacks feel hostility
9 A few blacks are ferociously hostile to whites.
10 Avoid concentrations of blacks not known to you personally. Stay out
of black neighborhoods. Do not settle in an area run by black politicians.
Do not help unknown blacks in apparent distress. If accosted by a strange
black in the street, be polite but keep moving.
11 The mean
intelligence of blacks is much lower than that of whites.
action raises the proportions of blacks in cognitively demanding jobs. At
work you will on average find more competence in white than black employees.
13 There are many intelligent and well-socialized blacks.
There is strong demand for them.
15 They are special.

version of Derbyshire's "talk" was brought to you as a public service. I do
not like the tone of his remarks.
