America wants to get rid of racism by giving ever increasing importance to the concept of race and by defining people by their skin colour.
What could possibly go wrong...
Scott Adams did utter a really stupid comment, and he is being shunned by everyone. I disagree with him and think that's not the right way to approach the extremely sensible theme of race. Particularly in the US, where the discussion runs and is constantly kept on the wrong tracks.
I don't think that banning Dilbert is a great solution wither, as ostracism is not a good thing. I say it would at least be fair if the same thing happened to those who do the same towards white people. But it's not, so it's not fair.
Look at that:
Sane commentary to a racist video.
let's remember that the video that you can see commented here has been online for - years - before being labeled as private. Not removed, deleted, canceled. Just made private. Adams' remarks are tame in comparison, and could well be described as a foreseeable reaction to things like what you can see in that video.
Racism is an illness, and it is impossible to cure an illness with more of the same illness (sorry omeopaths...).
To clarify, to me the right approach to the race issue is "what makes us equal is way more and way more important than what makes us different: human beings are human beings despite their cosmetic differences, and they will behave, react and feel basically the same in all situations, in all places, in all times.
The way out of racism is to stop considering race as important.
