'Dilbert' Creator Scott Adams Loses Distributor, Claims He Identified as Black

After virtually every newspaper in America dropped Scott Adams’ Dilbert cartoon over the weekend, his distributor Andrews McMeel Universal announced yesterday that it would no longer be working with Adams, either. That’s it. He’s done. He’ll self-publish his Dilbert cartoons on his own website somewhere for the few people who are still hanging on, but the guy’s career is toast.

In case you missed it, the reason why is because, during a live stream on his YouTube channel last week, Adams called Black people “a hate group” from which white people should “get away” because he saw a poll where only a slim majority of Black people said that it’s OK to be white. “If nearly half of all Blacks are not OK with white people — according to this poll, not according to me, according to this poll — that’s a hate group … and I don’t want to have anything to do with them.” Adams said, adding that he intentionally moved to a white neighborhood and claimed that there is a correlation between the problems in a community and the race of people who live there.

For the record, and not that it matters, but only 26 percent of Black respondees disagreed with the statement, “It’s OK to be white.” I’m not saying, as a white dude, that I disagree with the statement, “It’s OK to be white,” but when people like Scott Adams, Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and the Margaritaville Jimmy Buffet are representative of white America, I understand why POC might have issues.

“I think it makes no sense whatsoever as a white citizen of America to try to help Black citizens anymore. It doesn’t make sense; it’s no longer a rational impulse,” Adams continued. “So I’m gonna back off … ‘cause it doesn’t seem like it pays off — like I’ve been doing it all my life, and the only outcome is that I get called a racist.”

If it talks like a duck, acts like a duck, and calls mallards a hate group …

Scott Adams, however, does have one supporter in Elon Musk. Musk didn’t condemn Adams’ statement but instead defended him by agreeing with Adams regarding the media. For a “very long time, US media was racist against non-white people, now they’re racist against whites & Asians,” Musk tweeted. “Same thing happened with elite colleges & high schools in America. Maybe they can try not being racist.”

Every single time a person or an entity attempts even a little to make things slightly more equitable for everyone, they’re perceived as racist because too many white people oppress even as they claimed to be oppressed, and that’s why 26 percent of Black people might disagree with the statement, “It’s OK to be white.”

Anyway, here’s the guy Elon Musk is defending:

Who is this “everyone” he speaks of?
