John Derbyshire Was Right: Rob, Stomp, and Stab Edition
Apr 30th, 2012 by Unamused
So far we’ve emphasized item 10h from Derbyshire’s infamous “The Talk: Nonblack Version,” because of the extra-hysterical response it provoked from leftists and “mainstream conservatives” (also leftists).
(10) [W]hile always attentive to the particular qualities of individuals, on the many occasions where you have nothing to guide you but knowledge of those mean differences, use statistical common sense:
(10h) Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway.
Gawker, as expected, wins the Unamusement Park Award for the Most Hysterical Denunciation of John Derbyshire’s Common Sense Advice for their “reporting” in “Racist John Derbyshire Writes Most Racist Article Possible, Pegged to Trayvon Martin Case” (filed under “Horrible People”):
Derbyshire’s “talk” is a bullet-point list of every racist thought he’s ever had about how dumb and dangerous black people are. Come, bear witness to the hideous monstrosity that is John Derbyshire’s deeply racist mind:
I’m not saying white people should accost John Derbyshire and shoot him with guns in his white neighborhood, then refuse to assist him when he lies in a state of “apparent distress,” until he dies. Just that it’d be ironic.
Please kill yourself, Maureen O’Connor. (And Alex Pareene. Kill yourself too.)
Why Derbyshire was right
So why should you think extra carefully before you “act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress”? Here are three good reasons.
First, you might get robbed at gunpoint. From Gaston County, North Carolina: “Good Samaritan attempts to help man with car trouble, gets robbed” (December 2, 2011).
A Gaston County man who was attempting to be a Good Samaritan ended up getting robbed after someone pulled a gun on him.
According to police, 40-year-old Tim Ferrell was walking out of the JCPenney store at Eastridge Mall when he saw a man who appeared to be having car trouble and asked if he needed help.
That’s when police say the man lifted his shirt to show a gun stuck in the waist of his pants and demanded money from Ferrell.
The man then stole Ferrell’s wallet, watch and wedding ring.
The suspect was described as a black male, 6-foot-3, stocky-build, 240 pounds, clean shaven and was wearing a hoodie and jeans.
Second, you might get stomped to death by a couple having an argument about incest. From New York City: Derbyshire’s own example, “Couple arraigned on charges they stomped an elderly man to death amid domestic dispute” (April 24, 2011).
A pair of lovebirds facing life as jailbirds were arraigned Sunday on charges they capped a boozy date by stomping a would-be good Samaritan to death in the street.
Quintin Guerrero, 61, was killed when he rushed to aid one of his accused attackers, Tosheba Alford [Black], 20, after she jumped out of a moving cab in front of his Bronx house to escape a beating from her boyfriend [also Black], Alford’s mother, Queen Smith, said.
[Smith] told reporters her daughter called her from the cab when Major started hitting her, accusing her of having an incestuous relationship with her brother.
Smith said her daughter jumped out of the moving cab, hurting her leg. She limped over and sat down on Guerrero’s front stoop, prompting the victim to come out of his house and check on her.
As Guerrero was asking Alford if she was hurt, Major jumped out of the cab, pummeled Guerrero to the ground and kicked him repeatedly, Alford told her mother.
Third, you might get stabbed to death… by a woman… over five dollars (and possibly some donuts). From Seattle, Washington: “Prosecutors: Fatal stabbing suspect asked for help, then money” (April 3, 2012).
Police say a woman accused of fatally stabbing a man outside a North Seattle Krispy Kreme doughnut shop Monday was trying to rob the victim.
Karen R. Latham [Black], 23, was ordered held on $1 million bail at her first court appearance Tuesday. Latham appeared visibly shaken and cried throughout the hearing without saying a word.
Latham told detectives she had just left a friend’s motor home in the 13500 block of Aurora Ave. N. and flagged down a car, according to court documents. She asked the driver, 54-year-old Zerabruk Hebtemariam, for a ride to a Jack in the Box located 10 blocks south. The fast food restaurant shares a parking lot with the doughnut shop.
Once they arrived, Latham asked Hebtemariam for money. The victim gave her $5 but Latham, unsatisfied, asked for more, prosecutors said.
When Hebtemariam refused, Latham pulled out a knife and again asked for more money, according to investigators. Hebtemariam again refused and tried to open the passenger door to push Latham out. She then stabbed him in the chest, according to prosecutors.
Latham walked off as Hebtemariam yelled that he had been stabbed.
The count so far: six would-be Good Samaritans who suffered violent crime, including two murders, at the hands of a total of seven Black people “in apparent distress.”
- assault and carjacking of a young woman by two 14-year-old Black girls
- carjacking and robbery at gunpoint of a young couple by a Black male
- robbery at gunpoint of a middle-aged man by a Black male
- murder by stomping of an elderly man by a Black couple
- murder by stabbing of a middle-aged man by a young Black woman
John Derbyshire was right: “while always attentive to the particular qualities of individuals, on the many occasions where you have nothing to guide you but knowledge of those mean differences, use statistical common sense.” So for your own sake, whatever your race, think hard before you “act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress.”
