There’s a storm a-brewin’ in the media world in response to Richard Cohen’s most recent Washington Post column, wherein a lot of inexcusable bigotry occurs in a very short span of words. Read More
Talk about a picky bouncer.
Times Square nightclub Circle NYC is no stranger to accusations of racism regarding whom they choose to let past the velvet rope. On Thursday, however, those complaints came to the fore when the megaclub was slapped with more than $20,000 in fines for its history of discriminatory practices.

Remember our friend John Derbyshire, formerly of the National Review? He’s the guy who wrote an article on Taki’s Mag about talking to your children about black people, which started out sort of funny in that hipster racist way, but then quickly veered off into a danger zone of bizarrely arbitrary stereotypes. (To paraphrase: “Black People Day at Six Flags is the worst!”)
Well, ever since he was fired by Rich Lowry for going over the implied racism quota set by the Review, Mr. Derbyshire has been keeping himself busy. Writing about how White Supremacy has a bad rap, going to his radiology checkups, brushing up on his Smithsonian back issues…he’s kind of your granddad, isn’t he?
Mr. Derbyshire finally found a topic he can really sink his politically incorrect teeth into: U.S. cities that pretend that they’re more racially diverse than they are. And he’s got the data to back it up! Though he’s not really sure what it means! Also: Stuff White People Like, NPR, and the term “multicultural” as an insult…all below! Read More
Two weeks ago, Phil Mushnick, a respected veteran sports writer for The New York Post, published a column about the Brooklyn Nets’ new brand identity, as designed with the help of Jay-Z. The team—previously known as the New Jersey Nets—had switched their colors to black and white. “Why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?” Mr. Mushnick suggested, referring to the team’s part-owner. “Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N——s. The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B—hes or Hoes …” Read More
John Derbyshire, whom you might remember as the guy too blatantly racist for the much more subtly racist National Review–has found himself a new gig. Besides continuing his writing for Taki’s Mag (where his article “The Talk: The NonBlack Version” ended his tenure at the Review), the British journalist is now a columnist for VDare.com, an anti-immigration website that the Southern Poverty Law Center has described as a “hate group.”
Phil Mushnick is a man that once garnered the nickname “Mr. Grumpy” from his boss at Fox Sports. That was in 1998, when it was known even then that Mr. Mushnick was a relic. “He’s a throwback,” David Hill, president of Fox Sports told The New York Observer at the time. “He sees himself as a knight in shining armor protecting sports fans from the slings and arrows hurled at them by cretinous, unfeeling network sports chiefs.”
But cretinous is a term that applies more to Mr. Mushnick more than sports chiefs, especially after today’s rant about Brooklyn Nets, during which he refers to the players as N——, which is certainly a novel way to say the N-word without saying the N-word, but otherwise is a pretty indefensible position all around. Even better is that Mr. Mushnick then tried to defend his statements by blaming the Nets’ part-owner, Jay-Z. Read More
Some people in Sheepshead Bay really aren’t thrilled with the prospect of a new mosque in the neighborhood. “If they build a mosque there, I’m going to bomb the mosque,” one resident told The Brooklyn Paper. “I will give them a lot of trouble,” he added. “They’re not going to stay here alive.”
