[Ed. – The New York Times subscribes to a double standard? Shocking!]
Imagine if The New York Times published a piece by a conservative academic in which the theme is the author teaching his white children that friendships with black people may not be possible.
Imagine, too, that part of the author’s reasoning was being worried about his children’s safety.
It wouldn’t happen, of course — that is, the Times actually publishing such a piece. But a similar article was written over five years ago, and the result was author John Derbyshire being ousted from National Review.
The Times would — and did — publish, however, Ekow N. Yankah’s op-ed which posits essentially the same thing as Derbyshire did … but in the racial reverse.
Titled “Can My Children Be Friends With White People?” the Yeshiva University law professor says the election of Donald Trump “has made it clear” that he needs to teach his sons the “lessons generations old” — that is, be cautious, be suspicious, be distrustful.
