Twitter CEO Elon Musk called the media “racist against whites and Asians” after author
Musk, 51, made his statement on Sunday in a reply to a tweet about Adams advising white people to “get the f*ck away from Black people,” which he called a “hate group.”
“For a *very* long time, US media was racist against non-white people, now they’re racist against whites and Asians. Same thing happened with elite colleges & high schools in America. Maybe they can try not being racist,” he wrote.

Musk also replied “Exactly” in agreement with another tweet that read: 

Adams’ comments weren’t good. But there’s an element of truth to this…it’s complicated. Mainly we’ve leaned into identity with predictable results, and power today is complicated. We were on the right path with colorblindness and need to return to it.

Hundreds of newspapers dropped Adams’ widely syndicated comic strip over the weekend after the American cartoonist made racist remarks during a livestream on his YouTube channel “Real Coffee with Scott Adams” on Wednesday.
In his video, which he titled, “AI Goes Woke, I Accidentally Joined A Hate Group, Trump, Policing Schools,” Adams talked about the recent poll that the “nonpartisan electronic media company” Rasmussen Reports conducted, in which the outlet asked 1,000 American adults: “Do you agree or disagree with this statement: ‘It’s OK to be white.’”
The poll results showed that 76% of respondents agreed with the statement. About 56% of Black respondents also answered yes in the poll. Meanwhile, around 26% of Black respondents disagreed with the statement, while 21% were unsure.
In his tirade, the Trump-supporting author combined the latter two figures, stating, “Add them together, that is 47% of Black respondents were not willing to say it’s OK to be white.”

I don’t want to have anything to do with them. And 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, just get the f*ck away. Wherever you have to go, just get away. Because there is no fixing this.

“So that’s what I did, I went to a neighborhood where I have a very low black population,” Adams added.
Some of the media companies that dropped Adams’ comic strip include The Washington Post, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe and the USA Today Network, which operates hundreds of newspapers.
According to the official “Dilbert” website, the long-running comic strip was first published in a handful of newspapers in 1989 before it grew to over 2,000 newspapers in 57 countries and 19 languages.
