    Default Now Dilbert is racist! Popular comic strip is canned by 77 newspapers

    .
    Hardly surprising the media is mostly run by craven cowards.

    Adams' much-loved 'Dilbert' comics have been in circulation since 1989 and frequently pokes fun at office culture, but he announced he was sensationally dropped by publisher Lee Enterprises.

    The media company owns nearly 100 newspapers across the country - including The Buffalo News, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Arizona Daily Sun - and has been publishing Adams' jokes about the corporate ladder for years.

    One of his most recent controversial comic strips included a black worker, who identifies as white, being asked to also identify as gay to boost his company's environmental, social, and governance ratings.

    Dave, his reoccurring character, replies: 'Depends how hard you want me to sell it,' before the boss responds: 'Just wear better shirts.'

    Adams, 65, is believed to be worth nearly $70million - a fortune he amassed thanks to the popularity of his characters, as well as his non-Dilbert related works.

    As Gustave Le Bo lamented: “The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduces them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”

    The Revolution has no use for either humor or truth.

    “Adams said: 'It was part of a larger overhaul, I believe, of comics, but why they decided what was in and what was out, that's not known to anybody except them, I guess.'”

    <shrug> I think that's pretty funny actually. The paper can drop the comic if it wants. If they lose revenue because of it, it was a bad decision.

    You guys are all about banning gays from bakeries and trans people from anything, so can't a private news organization make decisions as well? No, rules are for others, not you, right?
