Dilbert’s Scott Adams finally lets loose with the racist tirade we all knew was just waiting to burst forth from his simple mind

It must be tough for people like Dilbert creator Scott Adams. You have all these hardcore racist, sexist followers who can say all the things you can only say in code behind the same squishy “libertarian” facade that all your fellow racist, sexist white men who have to, for reasons of marketability, maintain year after year after year.

Then, one day, the floodgates open because, goddamn it, you know deep down in your heart you are correct in your racist, sexist beliefs:

Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert comic strip, went on a racist rant this week on his Coffee with Scott Adams online video show, and we will no longer carry his comic strip in The Plain Dealer.

This is not a difficult decision.

Adams said Black people are a hate group, citing a recent Rasmussen survey which, he said, shows nearly half of all Black people do not agree with the phrase “It’s okay to be white.”

“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,” he says in the video.

Adams probably finally realized he’s made enough money he doesn’t have to hide his true self any longer.

Scott Adams, who probably still has no idea what a self-own the title of his book was.

Cartoon Friday: Joel Pett

I’m currently witnessing two very good friends whose dogs are in the late stages of terminal illnesses. One dog has a brain tumor that is impairing her ability to move and eat, and also giving her seizures. I cannot watch the videos he is posting in the midst of his grief. I don’t blame him. He must feel so helpless.

Those who are not “dog people” can sometimes have a difficult time relating to people for whom watching a treasured pet’s health in precipitous decline is akin to watching a human loved one struggle with impending death.

We who love our dogs so much that we would risk our own lives saving theirs, are here to tell you that you that this loss will be, for some of us, one of life’s defining moments.

Cartoonist Joel Pett posted this cartoon to his Facebook page on June 1. I appreciate it so much that he thought to do this. A nice tribute.
