Later in the week, as Brian <a href="http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/john-derbyshire-claims-overwhelming-majority-black-americans-agree-with-column-defending-white-supremacy">reported</a>, Derbyshire responded to his critics by claiming that &ldquo;the overwhelming majority of Black Americans agree&rdquo; with his assessment that &ldquo;white supremacy&rdquo; is &ldquo;one of the better arrangements History has come up with."</p> <center><img height="87" width="388" alt="" src="http://www.pfaw.org/sites/default/files/vdare.jpg" /><br /> </center> <div>VDARE&rsquo;s founder, Peter Brimelow, swooped in to <a href="http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/purged-white-nationalists-circle-wagons-vdare-and-alternative-right">rescue Derbyshire</a> last month after he was fired by the <i>National Review</i> for encouraging whites to <a href="http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/john-derbyshire-and-national-review-what-took-so-long">avoid interacting with blacks</a>. In late April, Brimelow announced that VDARE&rsquo;s spring fundraising effort had &ldquo;started off well enough,&rdquo; &ldquo;but now it&rsquo;s stalled.&rdquo; He speculated that they had &ldquo;cannibalized our donations by pointing our readers to John Derbyshire&rsquo;s donation link after he was abruptly fired&rdquo; but said it was<a href="http://www.vdare.com/immigration-perfect-storm-coming-you-need-vdarecom-and-we-need-your-help"> worth it</a>:</div> <blockquote> <div>We don&rsquo;t care about that.

Brimelow even brought on a regular VDARE contributor, <a href="http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/second-white-nationalist-writing-dow-jones-marketwatch">Edwin Rubenstien</a>, as a frequent co-author of his MarketWatch column. If Derbyshire plays his cards right, maybe he can become the third white nationalist to draw pay from Dow Jones.</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Given Derbyshire&rsquo;s recent coming out as a full-blown white supremacist, and the key role Brimelow has played as his savior and enabler, it&rsquo;s worth revisiting the question of why MarketWatch is employing a national racist organizer. I posed the question <a href="http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/white-nationalist-leader-peter-brimelow-still-working-dow-jones-marketwatch">here</a> in April, and sent it, along with the relevant background, to executives and editors at MarketWatch and Dow Jones.
