Comics page needs change

Published: 7/17/2020 3:43:53 PM

I have laughed at Dilbert comics numerous times over the years. But I find nothing funny about the recent racist comic strips (starting Monday 7/13). A quick internet search led me to see that Scott Adams, Dilbert’s creator, has recently been making claims of “reverse racism,” among other troubling statements.

I call on the Recorder to drop Dilbert and replace it with a comic strip created by a Black artist.

Off the top of my head I can think of at least three that are carried in other Massachusetts newspapers (Curtis, Boondocks, JumpStreet), and I am sure that there are plenty of others readily available. While you’re at it, it’s time for Hagar and Blondie to go, too.
