Newspapers Drop ‘Dilbert’ Comic Strip After Creator Scott Adams Supposedly Makes ‘Racist’ Remarks about Black People

Andrews McMeel Universal, the company that syndicates “Dilbert,” said it is cutting ties with the comic strip’s creator, Scott Adams, after his racist remarks about Black Americans led hundreds of newspapers across the country to drop the satirical cartoon. In a joint statement, Andrews McMeel Chairman Hugh Andrews and CEO and President Andy Sareyan said that the syndication company was “severing our relationship” with Adams and condemned his remarks, saying “we will never support any commentary rooted in discrimination or hate.”

I don’t think Adams is racist at all. The guy’s been around too long without one iota of racist incident’s to automatically be branded a racist because he emotionally responded to a poll on race. He was trying to make a salient point, but a more nuanced and well-thought out response would have been better. But hey hindsight is 20/20.
