“The same thing happened with elite colleges and high schools in America…Maybe they can try not to be racist.”
Since Musk bought Twitter for $44 billion, there have been a wave of hateful rhetoric.
“Systemic racism requires not only widespread bigotry within a group, but also a structural component that allows discrimination and oppression to be imposed on a minority due to an advantage of access and power. A white billionaire from South Africa who recently lost a high-profile race discrimination case may not be best placed to offer advice,” Brian Levin, civil rights lawyer and director of the Center for the Study of California State Hate and Extremism. University, said of Musk’s comments, according to CNBC.
The owner of Tesla is currently involved in a workplace discrimination lawsuit filed by the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) following complaints after the California Department of Civil Rights, formerly known as the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, sued Tesla for widespread racial discrimination at Tesla factories and facilities across the state.
According to the trialthousands of black workers at Tesla’s Fremont factory were shunted into the most physically demanding jobs and forced into the lowest contract roles.
The segregated areas where they worked were called the “porch monkey station”, “the slave ship”, and “the plantation”, and that’s not the worst. When black workers complained, they were retaliated against, ignored and denied bonuses, promotions and other opportunities, the lawsuit says.
In addition to standing up for racists, Musk was busy over the weekend laying off at least 50 employees, The Daily Beast Reports. Without even sparing one of its most loyal employees, Twitter payments manager Esther Crawford, who according to The Daily Beast slept in her office to show her dedication.
Adams’ segregationist outburst, the one that knocked his tape to the sidewalk, came out of his YouTube channel. A poll by conservative firm Rasmussen Reports found nearly half of black people polled disagreed with the statement “It’s okay to be white.”
“Based on the current turn of events, the best advice I would give white people is get the hell out of the black people. Get the hell out,” Adams said. “Wherever you need to go, get away. there’s no solution. It can’t be fixed. So I don’t think it makes any more sense as a white citizen of America to try to help black citizens. It hasn’t No sense. There’s no more rational impetus. So I’m going to give up on helping black America because it doesn’t seem to be paying off.
This isn’t the first time Adams has taken part in the racist rodeo.
In 2016, Hunter has written extensively about the cartoonist’s support of then-candidate Donald Trump.
“If Trump is elected and does anything even slightly resembling Hitler in office, I will join the resistance movement and help kill him. It’s an easy promise to make, and I hope that my fellow citizens will use their Second Amendment rights to stand up and help me kill every Hitler-like person who has reached the highest office in this country, no matter who it is,” Adams said, according to Hunter .
SATURDAY, Mark Sumner of the Daily Kos wrote that in past podcasts, Adams has said that the January 6 insurgents weren’t actually Trump supporters, but that the crowd at the United States Capitol was a conspiracy – “a conspiracy he blamed on the” “racist and anti-Semitic” replacement theory. ”
In 2022, Variety reports that Adams introduced a black character to his strip for the first time. “Dave the Black Engineer” has been used to denigrate diversity and inclusion in the workplace and transgender identity. “I identify as white,” the character said in one strip.
According to Variety, Adams also claimed, in 2020, that after the UPN canceled the animated series Dilbertit was for “being white” and because “UPN decided it would focus on an African-American audience”, alleging it was his “third job lost for being white”.
As Sumner wrote, Adams’ comic book once appeared in over 2,000 newspapers, but has since been dropped by hundreds of distributors in a list too long to mention.
Goodbye and good riddance.
