Elon Musk Reveals His Apartheid Past By Backing Dilbert Creator

Elon Musk defended “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams after hundreds of newspapers stopped printing the comic strip because of Adams’ recent racist comments, Jordan Valinsky reported for CNN.

Adams recently called Black Americans a “hate group” and suggested that White people should “get the hell away” from them. Adams effectively encouraged segregation in a shocking rant on his YouTube channel.


His comments came in response to a poll from the conservative firm Rasmussen Reports that said 53% of Black Americans agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be White.”



In response to a tweet about the controversy, Twitter owner Musk said that the “media is (sic) racist.” He didn’t criticize Adams’ comments and Musk said without evidence that for a “very long time, US media was (sic) racist against non-white people, now they’re racist against whites & Asians.”


Twitter under Musk has deteriorated. The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) said that daily use of the n-word under Musk is triple the 2022 average and the use of slurs against gay men and trans persons are up 58% and 62%, respectively.


All the news: Business man in suit and tie smiling and reading a newspaper near the financial district.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said in a report that its data show “both an increase in antisemitic content on the platform and a decrease in the moderation of antisemitic posts.”


“Same thing happened with elite colleges & high schools in America,” Musk wrote. “Maybe they can try not being racist.”


Government & politics: Politicians, government officials and delegates standing in front of their country flags in a political event in the financial district.

Musk later agreed with a tweet saying Adams’ comments “weren’t good” but had an “element of truth” to them. He also accused the media of giving Black victims of police violence disproportionate coverage over White victims of police violence.


Black people are more likely to die from police use of force than White people, according to hundreds of studies. Musk was born and grew up in South Africa when apartheid was the official state policy.
