“White Fragility” author Robin DiAngelo offered a separatist proposition in which she advocated for racial segregation, prompting conservatives to note that “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams was vilified and reportedly lost 80% of his income after making essentially the same proposition but from the opposite perspective.

Adams had reacted to a Rasmussen Reports poll that asked whether people agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be white.” 26% of black respondents disagreed and 21% said they were not sure, prompting Adams to state, “If nearly half of all blacks are not OK with white people … that’s a hate group.”

“And I don’t want anything to do with them,” Adams continued. “And based on how things are going, the best advice I could give to white people is to get the hell away from black people. Just get the f*** away. Wherever you have to go, just get away. ’Cause there’s no fixing this. This can’t be fixed.”

Adams later defended himself, saying, “The trick is just to use my quote and to ignore the context which I helpfully added afterwards,” adding that his two main points were “treat all individuals as individuals, no discrimination” and “avoid anything that statistically looks like a bad idea for you personally.”

DiAngelo was speaking on a group chat when she declared that she was “a big believer in affinity space and affinity work, and I think people of color need to get away from white people and have some community with each other. And I’ll let that go and maybe see if anyone else wants to pick it up.”

Anti-woke warrior Christopher Rufo noted the incongruity, writing, “It’s amazing that, for an entire year, the libs scrambled to find their moral voice and settled on Ibram Kendi and Robin DiAngelo, who turned out to be two of the greatest midwits of our time.”

Commentator Dave Rubin chimed in, “Isn’t this what they cancelled @ScottAdamsSays for?!”

That prompted Adams to respond, “You’re not supposed to notice.”

When a critic claimed that Adams’ comments were different from DiAngelo’s because Adams used the term “hate group,” Adams replied:

Every adult knows “hate group” is obvious hyperbole in this case. And so do you. Taking it literally comes off as a diversion from the point, that the woke part of the world (of all colors) has a mindset that is being poisoned against White people, and White men in particular. Don’t hide from the point. It’s useful information for all.
