Ironically, "Is it OK to be white?" would have made a great subject for a Dilbert strip

During the Feb. 22 episode of “Real Coffee with Scott Adams,” he referenced a Rasmussen Reports survey that had asked whether people agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be white.” Most agreed, but Adams noted that 26% of Black respondents disagreed and others weren’t sure.

“It’s OK to be white” is not a "statement," but a race-baiting attempt from a polling company known to be politically biased, and as an experienced satirist of corporate culture, Adams should have seen right through it. I mean, exactly what does "It’s OK to be white" mean -- WHAT makes WHAT okay to be white, and in what context?

I've enjoyed Dilbert's jabs at corporatism for decades, but I will be donating neither money nor tears to Adams' cancel culture fund because he cancelled himself. To paraphrase Shakespeare, he threw away the dearest thing he owned -- his ability to take jabs at corporatism for a living -- as though it were a careless trifle.
