The Blue John Caverns in Derbyshire produce one of the scarcest minerals in the world and also offer a truly unique exploration experience. Far from the dank and dingy caves usually associated with mining, these limestone caverns have...Show More Summary
Tod Kelly argues that there's only one real difference: NRO was willing to part ways with Derbyshire for his embarrassingly offensive racism, while the Washington Post seems to be OK with Cohen's.
Victor Davis Hanson, in a National Review post oddly reminiscent of the piece that got John Derbyshire fired, consisting as it does largely of cross-generational warnings to avoid black people, offers the following: Had George Zimmerman been black, he would have been, statistically at least, more likely to have shot Trayvon Martin In fact, since…
• Author John Shelby Spong talks about his book The Fourth Gospel, in which he claims the last gospel is not a literal account of the life of Jesus. • Columnist John Derbyshire defends his claim that women serving in combat roles are “outliers” will commit “hoaxes.”
The Derb has once again ruffled feathers. “They are eccentric and prone to behave eccentrically,” Derbyshire wrote. “As a designated victim group, they are especially susceptible to the associated pathologies, e.g., victim hoaxes for attention, spite, or cash reward.” But male soldiers, he argued, are responding to their “widespread, innate male urges” to kill people, [...]

One person pronounced the surname DAH-bi-shuh (like the English county) but two others pronounced it DAR-bee-shir. Any comment? A: The pronunciation of a personal name is up to the person who wears it. John Derbyshire, the former... ? Read More: Name calling
I wrote on June 20, 2001: John Derbyshire’s uncategorizable advice to his timid son is now up on National Review Online. Who else would encourage his offspring to fight back against a bully by bribing him with ice-cream and the words: “But I want to see the blood. Ice cream for blood.” The piece ends with the [...]

Everyone knows that conservative magazine National Review is not racist. Sure, it used to publish John "avoid concentrations of blacks" Derbyshire — but look at the sensitivity with which it's treated race in this column about how President Obama isn't really black and this all-white symposium on black unemployment.

The National Review has repeatedly found itself in hot water over the past several months. In April, the conservative publication fired John Derbyshire for a “webzine” which crossed the line into outright racism. But the magazine’s editors continue to welcome contributions from white nationalist, and noted Islamophobe, David Yerushalmi, as well as anti-Muslim advocates Robert [...]

Back in April, National Review finally parted ways with longtime contributor John Derbyshire after Derbyshire penned an especially racist piece advising non-black American parents on how to talk to their kids about black people.
