Dilbert creator sparks firestorm with strong reaction to poll showing 47% of blacks not willing to say it’s ok to be white

Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams commented on his podcast Wednesday that the results of a Rasmussen poll that showed 47% of black respondents were not willing to say it’s okay to be white convinced him that African-Americans are a “hate group.”

Adams asserted on his podcast “Coffee with Scott Adams” that according to the poll, there is “no fixing” the current racial tension in America and that whites should stay away from blacks.

After reviewing the Rasmussen poll, Adams proclaimed that it was the “first political poll that ever changed my activities.”

He said the poll revealed that 26% of black respondents said it’s “not OK to be white” and 21% said, “They weren’t sure.”

“That’s 47% of blacks not willing to say it’s OK to be white. That’s like a real poll. This just happened,” he remarked tongue-in-cheek.

“I’ve been identifying as black for a while because I like to be on the winning team,” Adams snarked. “And I like to help. I always thought if you help the black community, that’s sort of the biggest lever, you could find the biggest benefit.”

“But it turns out that nearly half of that team doesn’t think I’m okay to be white. Which is why I identified as black so I could be on the winning team for a while,” he noted in what appeared to be sarcasm.

He said he’s now “going to re-identify as white” because he doesn’t “want to be a member of a hate group,” which he joked he had “accidentally joined.”

“If nearly half of all blacks are not okay with white people — according to this poll, not according to me, according to this poll — that’s a hate group,” Adams claimed.

He obviously has doubts about the validity of the poll and it’s hard to tell if he’s serious or not during the segment, but it should be noted that Adams writes a “comic” script… he’s a cartoonist. This tweet exchange with Adams indicates that the video was born of sarcasm, not racism. Perhaps a sense of humor is in order.

“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 dead-panned. “Just get the f*** away. Wherever you have to go, just get away. Because there’s no fixing this. This can’t be fixed.”

He went on to claim that he had moved to an area “with a very low black population.” He then quoted CNN anchor Don Lemon claiming there’s a “correlation” between a “mostly black” neighborhood and “a bunch of problems he didn’t see” in mostly 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 stated. “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.”

“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,” he concluded.

Adams concluded his comments on the podcast by laughingly telling his viewers, “And there we go. You didn’t expect that today, did you?”

The Anti-Defamation League has deemed the phrase “It’s OK to be White” as a hate slogan that started as a trolling campaign by members of the controversial forum 4chan.

The Rasmussen poll also found that 79% of respondents agreed with the statement, “Black people can be racist, too,” including 66% of black people.
