You may or may not know (I did not) that Dilbert creator went off on a fucking racist rant and has been 86'd by our paper.
I've never thought higher of the Plain Dealer. I mean, that's a sad statement, however true.
Adams was a douche with which to begin. Yes, being a science denying, election denying, faux voter fraud liar and MAGA fan and participant make you a douche. Being a racist is just part of their starter-package.
I'd say "it's science", but what good would that do?
One of Adams' rants was: "the best advice I'd give to white people is to get the hell away from black people".
The Plain Dealer defended their move - which they said was not difficult - by addressing "cancel culture". They said the paper is not a home for those who espouse racism and that they will not provide them financial support.
That won't stop people writing into the paper. And I so fucking hope they do, sign their name and get their letter printed exposing themselves as racists - or at very 'best' condoning racists and racism.
I also hope that every other paper drop the bastard. I mean, sure southern states won't. You know.....racists. And yes, I'm generalizing, but no state in the north has a lynching museum. But it they want to get him where it hurts - Hallmark stores (and the likes) have to stop carrying mugs, calendars, cards, etc with the comic strip crew.
I was never a real fan of Dilbert. I get it's view of cube life, but it was fairly one-note. Honestly, save Bizarro and Speed Bump, I don't read any comics anymore.
So now, for the time being, there is a grey box where Adams strip used to reside. Good riddance.
