We Don’t Think About White People Like You Think We Do

Only when it concerns our well-being

In the hit show, The Wire, there’s a reporter from The Baltimore Sun, who fabricates an entire story with fake accounts and made-up quotes. One day when called out, he slams his notebook down, yelling at his editor that everything he wrote in the story was in his notes. He walks away from his desk, his co-worker picks up the notebook and it’s empty. The same note book he said he wrote everything in.

And here is the story of Scott Adams waving his notebook.

He is the creator of the comic strip Dilbert, a micromanaged engineer weeding through his daily office life amid a hostile work culture. And just a few days ago, Scott went on a rant because a poll suggested a portion of black Americans didn’t agree with the statement “its okay to be white.” A man who said that he wanted to be on the winning team so he started identifying as black, and because 26% of black people disagree with that statement, black people are now a hate group and white people would be better off staying away. He repeatedly called out his ‘notebook’ as he spoke in general, how he was no longer using his resources to support black people.

He, however, never mentioned said resources.

And now some of those 2000 daily newspapers in 26 countries who printed Dilbert comics are pulling the strip out of print.
