The comic strip “Dilbert” is will no longer be housed by the LA Times, The San Antonio Express News, and other major newspapers. These actions are in response to Scott Adams revealing himself to be an enormous racist. Again. Or should we say….still.
Adams came under righteous heavy fire February 25th after describing Black people as “a hate group white people should steer clear of.” Wanting no part of Adams’ racist rhetoric, the papers have promptly dropped him.
Adams showed his true colors during his YouTube show “Real Coffee with Scott Adams” when referencing a Rasmussen Reports survey. The report asked whether people were in agreement with the statement “It’s OK to be white.” Several alt-right and white supremisist hate groups have adopted the phrase, leading the The Anti-Defamation League to denounced it as a hate chant.
Infected With Imagined Blamelessness
This shouldn’t come as any kind of surprise. Adams continuously referred to Black Americans as a “racist hate group,” and that he would no longer lend any assistance. “Based on the current way things are going, the best advice I would give to white people is to get the hell away from Black people.” Inflammatory doesn’t even begin to describe these despicable statements.
Many newspapers that previously ran “Dilbert” responded quickly. The LA Times is discontinuing the strip by March 12th. USA Today Network is also dropping it “due to recent discriminatory comments by its creator.” The Plain Dealer, a Cleveland publication, is also done with “Dilbert.” “We are not a home for those who espouse racism,” Editor Chris Quinn said. “We certainly do not want to provide them with financial support.”
Disgustingly, Adams continues to attempt to defend himself on social media. Citing “those who hate me and are canceling me.” Good riddance. Again.
