Elon Musk condemned the US media for “racist sentiment”
American cartoonist Scott Adams is known as the author of many comics. But recently, the media began to reject his work, accusing Adams of bigotry. As a result, subscribers to many newspapers have missed out on the plot development of one of America’s most popular comics, Dilbert.
The fact is that Adams called black Americans a “hate group” after learning the results of a sociological survey conducted in the United States.
Only black people were interviewed, who were asked to agree or disagree with the statement “it’s okay to be white.”
26% of respondents disagreed with the statement, another 21% stating that they “are not sure this is a correct statement.” In a similar poll of Americans of all races, only 12% of respondents disagreed with the same thesis.
– If half of all blacks disagree with whites, then it’s a hate group. I don’t want anything to do with them. And based on how things are going right now, the best advice I would give white people is to stay away from black people, because it can’t be fixed,” he said.
The owner of the Tesla, Twitter and SpaceX corporations, billionaire Elon Musk, liked Adams’s denunciation on social networks about the refusal of media corporations to continue cooperating with him. And he wrote that the US media is “racist against whites and Asians.”
As a result, another wave of criticism has already fallen on Musk himself. The new owner of Twitter has previously been accused of being too broad in his interpretation of the concept of “free speech”, as he ordered the unlocking of thousands of accounts on his social network whose owners profess far-right views.
Musk was forced to admit that “Adams’s comments were not good,” but noted that “there is an element of truth to them” as the US media is pushing the “false agenda” with disproportionate coverage of various related incidents. with, for example, police violence. Musk believes that he writes and shows much more about black victims than white ones.
All this did not calm the numerous organizations that defend the rights of blacks. They urged advertisers to stop cooperating with Twitter.
