Several newspapers based in the United States have dropped the Dilbert comic strip. This comes after its creator, Scott Adams, made racist remarks in a YouTube video.

In the video, Adams called Black Americans a “hate group” and suggested that White people should “get the hell away” from them.

CNN reports that Adams effectively encouraged segregation in a shocking rant on YouTube. 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.”

Adams said on his YouTube show Real Coffee with Scott Adams “if nearly half of all Blacks are not OK with White people – according to this poll, not according to me, according to this poll – that’s a hate group.”

Since learning about his cartoon being dropped, he said on Twitter that he was only “advising people to avoid hate” and that the cancellation of his cartoon shows that free speech in the USA is under assault.”
