The National Review editor Rich Lowry made the announced known that John Derbyshire has been fired for writing an inflammatory essay on a blog site warning whites and Asians to avoid "any events that could likely to draw a lot of blacks" and to "keep moving" if been approached by a black person on the street.

In the essay, Derbyshire, 66 year old, refers to "the talk" given by African American parents to their children, widely written about in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, Florida.

In his column, Derbyshire says that "there is a talk that non-black Americans have with their kids, too" and proceeds to outline what he thinks white and Asian parents should tell their children. "If they come across a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving," a piece of advice he gives.

He also warns the whites and Asians to stay out of heavily black neighborhoods and to avoid acting the "Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress moment, or on the highway."

He wrote further, "there are nonetheless many intelligent and well-socialized blacks," adding that he would use IWSB as an acronym for them in the essay going forward.

But also wrote "You should consciously seek opportunities to make friends with IWSBs," he advised.

There was no immediate comment from Derbyshire yet about his suspension and it is not clear weather he would like to comment on the issue.
