US media dropped Dilbert comic strip following racist rant by creator Scott Adams.

Via YouTube 

Following the release of a racist video in which the creator of the well-known "Dilbert" comic strip called the black people a "hate group," many US newspapers opted not to continue publishing the strip. In the 1990s, Scott Adams became well-known for his work on "Dilbert," a pretty dismal portrayal of the workplace. His sociological analysis is becoming more and more controversial.

He made reference to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll on his YouTube show on Wednesday, which revealed that a narrow majority of black respondents thought that "it's Fine to be white." "I want nothing to do with it," he said, calling it a hate organisation. The author said, "The best counsel I could give white folks at this time is to get the hell away from black people.

The Dilbert comic book will no longer be published, as announced by the USA TODAY Network, which owns and controls hundreds of newspapers across the country, as of Friday night. This is because of recent racist remarks made by the writer. Editor of The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio, Chris Quinn, said on Friday that the decision to discontinue publication of the comic book "wasn't hard." He continued, "We do not welcome anyone who supports racism.

Although it was too late to stop it from appearing in its weekend editions, The Washington Post said on Saturday that the cartoon will no longer appear in its pages. A representative for the newspaper said, "The Washington Post has discontinued publication of the Dilbert comic strip in light of recent statements by Scott Adams encouraging segregation.

On a later broadcast of his internet show on Saturday, Adams claimed he had meant to emphasise the idea that "everyone should be treated as an individual" without bias.
