Imagine a situation where you have a new neighbour moving in next door. He pulls up in a moving van and comes over to say hi. You notice straight away that he is black.
After exchanging a few pleasantries, he asks you straight up, “do you think it’s OK to be a black person?”
You reply that, “no, I don’t think it’s OK.”
The would be neighbour tells you that in that case, he believes that you are filled with hate and will move somewhere else.
What would be a reasonable response to that situation. Would it be for you to ring his boss and demand that he be sacked for not wanting to live near you?
That is the bizarre situation that Scott Adams finds himself in.
Scott, is the creator of the famous Dilbert cartoons. Recently, a Rasmussen poll was conducted which asked people in America if it was OK to be white.
Of the black people who were asked, almost half at least partially disagreed.
Adams had a (fairly restrained) rant about this on his regular video chat. He described American blacks as a hate group and said that it was about time that whites just moved away from them.
The video is here.
What he actually said is as follows:
“Add ’em together: That is 47% of black respondents who were not willing to say it’s ok to be white…
As you know, I’ve been identifying as black for a while — years now — ’cause I like to be on the winning team and I like to help. I always thought, well if you help the black community, that’s sort of the biggest lever. You know, you can find the biggest benefit…So I thought, well, that’s the hardest thing and the biggest benefit, so I’d like to focus a lot of my life resources in helping black Americans — so much so that I started identifying as black to just be to be on the team I was helping.
But it turns out that nearly half of that team doesn’t think I’m ok to be white…I have to say, this is the first political poll that’s ever changed my activities…As of today, I’m going to re-identify as white, because I don’t want to be a member of a hate group. I’ve accidentally joined a hate group. If nearly half of all blacks are not ok with white people — according to this poll, not according to me — that’s a hate group…and I don’t want to have anything to do with it.
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 fuck away. Wherever you have to go, just get away.
There’s no fixing this…I think it makes no sense whatsoever as a white citizen of America to try to help black citizens anymore…I’m gonna back off from being helpful to black America, because it doesn’t seem like it pays off. I’ve been doing it all my life, and the only outcome is I get called a racist…It makes no sense to help black Americans if you’re white. It’s over. Don’t even think it’s worth trying. Totally not trying.
We should be friendly. Like, I’m not saying start a war or do anything bad…I’m just saying get away.”
Funny thing is, Elon Musk weighed in on Twitter:
For a *very* long time, US media was racist against non-white people, now they’re racist against whites & Asians.
Same thing happened with elite colleges & high schools in America.
Maybe they can try not being racist.

Love Elon or hate him, this discussion would never have happened on Twitter whilst Yoel Roth, the FBI and the ADL were running things.
At least we now have a platform (other than The Richardson Post) which allows a reasonable degree of free speech and discussion of unpopular (with the elites) ideas.
Meanwhile, down here in Australia, I wonder how Aboriginals would answer that question.
Maybe we should ask them before handing over a bunch of Constitutional and/or legislative power.
