Former National Review columnist and much-maligned figure John Derbyshire opined in his latest piece recently that white supremacy is good for human society.

Writing now for the white nationalist site VDARE.com, Derbyshire issued a passionate defense of his unorthodox view while pondering the role of modern day conservatism.

“Leaving aside the intended malice, I actually think ‘White Supremacist’ is not bad semantically,” he wrote. “White supremacy, in the sense of a society in which key decisions are made by white Europeans, is one of the better arrangements History has come up with. There have of course been some blots on the record, but I don’t see how it can be denied that net-net, white Europeans have made a better job of running fair and stable societies than has any other group.”

Derbyshire is notorious for his column in Taki’s Magazine last month where he urged white and Asian parents to have their children avoid contact with black kids. The column was deemed so offensive that The National Review decided to fire Derbyshire after tolerating his previous history of racial and misogynistic views for years.
