Cartoonist Says Get Away from Black People

On Wednesday, Adams discussed a poll from the conservative group Rasmussen Reports that surveyed 1,000 Americans with the question: “Do you agree or disagree with this statement, ‘It’s OK to be white’?” (The Anti-Defamation League characterizes the phrase “It’s OK to be white” as a hate slogan due to its links to to white supremacist websites.) The report found that 72% of the respondents agreed, including 53% who are Black, according to NPR. Adams cited the poll to emphasize his belief that racial tensions in America “can’t be fixed.”

“If nearly half of all Blacks are not OK with White people … that’s a hate group,” he declared. “I don’t want to have anything to do with them. And I would say, based on the current way things are going, the best advice I would give to white people is to get the hell away from Black people … because there is no fixing this.”

Adams, who has publicly embraced right-wing ideology in recent years, said he’s no longer helping Black Americans.

“It turns out that nearly half of that team doesn’t think I’m okay to be white,” he continued. “I’m going to back off from being helpful to Black America because it doesn’t seem like it pays off… I get called a racist. That’s the only outcome. It makes no sense to help Black Americans if you’re white. It’s over. Don’t even think it’s worth trying.”
