Elon Musk dips his toe into ‘Dilbert’ cartoonist controversy, says US media is ‘racist against whites & Asians

Lazy eyes listen


South African billionaire Elon Musk became embroiled in the controversy surrounding “Dilbert” cartoonist Scott Adams’ recent racially charged remarks and subsequent cancellation on Sunday, implying that the same media outlets now crying racism are far from innocent, having long peddled division in America.

What is the context?
A number of newspapers across the country, including USA Today, the Washington Post, and the New York Times, have dropped Adams’ long-running comic strip, claiming that his comments on a Feb. 22 episode of the YouTube show “Real Coffee with Scott Adams” were hateful and “discriminatory.

TheBlaze previously reported that Adams cited videos of black people beating white people, as well as a Rasmussen poll that found only 53% of black respondents agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be white.”

“That’s a hate group, and I don’t want anything to do with them,” Adams said. “And, given the current state of affairs, I would advise white people to stay as far away from black people as possible.”

“Just get the f*** away,” Adams emphasized, adding, “Wherever you have to go, just get away. Because there is no way to fix this. This can’t be fixed, can it?… I’m going to stop being helpful to black America because it doesn’t seem to be paying off. I’ve been doing it my entire life, and the only result is that I’m labeled a racist. If you’re white, it makes no sense to help black Americans. It’s all over. It’s not even worth attempting. I’m not even trying.”
