Dilberts' creator Scott Adams said pollsters had found “nearly half of all Blacks are not OK with white people,” and that meant Black people constituted “a hate group.”

Shortly thereafter his comic strip was dropped by numerous news papers.

In my experience that would be called a career limiting comment. Open mouth and insert foot.
If thirty percent of white people are outlandish archie bunker trump supporters does that condemn the entire subset of the species with a recessive MC1R gene?

things would have gone better for Scott Adams if he'd had one of his comic strip characters say this. But then again, so few people read newspapers - or comic strips - these days.

Old media Boomers are struggling with the new world.
I think we need a few more quotes from the Dilbert maker:

[quote]“I would say, 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,” the 65-year-old author exclaimed. “Just get the fuck away. Wherever you have to go, just get away. Because there’s no fixing this. This can’t be fixed.”

Reiterating that whites need to “escape,” Adams said that he had already done so by moving to an area “with a very low Black population.” He then cited Black CNN anchor Don Lemon to justify his assertion that there’s a “correlation” between a “mostly Black” neighborhood and “a bunch of problems he didn’t see” in majority-white areas.

“So I don’t think it makes any sense as a white citizen of America to try to help Black citizens anymore,” Adams huffed. “It doesn’t make sense. There’s no longer a rational impulse. So I’m going to back off on being helpful to Black America because it doesn’t seem like it pays off.”

He continued: “The only outcome is I get called a racist. That’s the only outcome. It makes no sense to help Black Americans if you’re white. It’s over. Don’t even think it’s worth trying.”

Later in the program, he again said you “just need to get away from them,” especially “those who don’t want to focus on education.” Adams followed that up by saying he’s “really sick of seeing video after video of Black Americans beating up non-Black citizens,” insisting that it’s “every damn day” he sees a clip of “some Black person beating the shit out of some white person.”[/quote]

Yeah, I'm glad my local newspaper dropped Dilbert. Scott Adams is free to speak his piece, but I don't want a penny of my subscription money to go to Adams.

He should be allowed to take sensitivity training.
