Why Black people should be treated like white people: Scott Adams on his “Dilbert” “strip” protest against the White Supremacist
Adams’s strip has been dropped before. Last year, The San Francisco Chronicle and 76 other newspapers published by Lee Enterprises reportedly dropped “Dilbert” after Adams introduced his first Black character. The move was to poke fun at the lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer community.
The USA Today Network, which publishes hundreds of newspapers, said it was ending the comic strip. The Washington Post and The Plain Dealer also in Cleveland said they would no longer carry the comic.
The phrase was first used on the 4chan message board as a troll campaign and has had a long history in the white supremacist movement.
Scott Adams said Wednesday on his show that if nearly half of black people are not okay with white people, that is a hate group.
He told them that nearly half of the team didn’t believe that he was okay to be white. I’m going to back off from being helpful to Black America because it doesn’t seem like it pays off. I get called a racist. The only outcome is this. If you’re white, it makes no sense to help Black Americans. It’s over. Don’t even think it’s worth trying.”
Scott Adams’s “Dilbert”: “It’s OK to be white” and “Don’t you wanna be white? ” Comment on the new racial backlash
Adams was the one who commented on the new backlash, saying he had been canceled. He stated that most of his income would be gone by next week. My life is ruined because of my reputation. You can’t come back from this, am I right? “
Gannett, which publishes the USA Today Network of newspapers, tweeted that it aims to “lead with inclusion and strive to maintain a respectful and equitable environment for the diverse communities we serve nationwide.”
The presidential bid by a Republican is discussed by Adams. Then, 13 minutes into the video, Adams began his screed by citing the results of a recent public opinion poll conducted by the conservative-leaning Rasmussen Reports.
By telephone and online, the group surveyed a thousand American adults, with this question: “Do you agree or disagree with this statement, ‘It’s OK to be white’?”
The report found that the majority of the people agreed with it. Some 26% of Black respondents disagreed, and 21% said they are “not sure.” The poll also found that 79% of all the respondents agreed with the statement “Black people can be racist too.”
In speeches, the “It’s OK to be white” statement has been repeated. The Anti-Defamation League has denounced it as a hate chant.
The results of the poll show that the country’s racial tensions can’t be fixed, according to Scott Adams, the cartoonist.
Adams has claimed that he is a victim of racism. He was a big supporter of Donald Trump. For three decades, he produced his comic strip “Dilbert,” which satirizes office culture. In 65 countries and 25 languages, ” Dilbert” appeared in 2,000 newspapers.
On his video show last week, the 65 year old said he had been identifying as Black “because I like to be on the winning team,” and that he used to help the Black community. Adams said the results of the Rasmussen poll changed his mind.
“We are not a home for those who espouse racism,” Quinn wrote. “Adams’ reprehensible statements come during Black History Month, when The Plain Dealer has been publishing stories about the work being performed by so many to overcome the damage done by racist decisions and policy.”
Quinn said other newspapers that are part of Advance Local newsrooms — in Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Oregon– made the same decision to stop running the strip.
