Pottsville Newspaper Dropping Dilbert Cartoon

Decision comes more than a week after Dilbert creator reacts to Rasmussen poll.

The local newspaper in Pottsville says it won’t publish Dilbert cartoons any more.

They’re making this decision because they say Dilbert’s creator, Scott Adams, “broadcast a racist ran on social media.”

Instead of Dilbert, they’re going to publish something called Heart of the City, which, based on the paper’s description of it, sounds boring.

But back to Adams …

The Dilbert creator recently took to social media to talk about a Rasmussen poll showing 26% of black Americans disagree with the statement “It’s okay to be white.” Another 21% of black Americans told Rasmussen pollsters that they are “not sure” about that statement.

Adams had his own interpretation of the poll, choosing to believe that being “not sure” meant you basically agreed with the 26% who disagree with the “It’s okay to be white” statement.

“47% are not willing to say, ‘It’s OK to be white’,” Adams says in his video (below).

Adams said this poll result shows that black people are a “hate group.”

“The best advice I have for white people is to get the h*** away from black people,” Adams says.

You can watch his “rant” here, and it starts around the 13:25 mark:

It’s important to note here that this poll dropped on Feb. 22. Adams’ “rant” also hit the same day.

But it took the RepublicanHerald newspaper another 8 days to publish its notice that it was dropping Dilbert. Clearly, they’re just going with the flow … keeping in line with the other legacy media across the country.

Many newspapers decided to drop Dilbert last weekend because most of them are owned by the same company.
