Aww, what’s wrong, Dilbert dude? Can’t feel powerful if the women and POC are speaking?
My homegirl Greta Christina put it perfectly on her Facebook:
Interesting that he actually comes out and says it this bluntly. Paraphrasing, but not by much: “Having women and people of color in positions of power makes me feel weak and useless.” I mean, it’s not like there was a lack of white men speaking at the DNC. They just didn’t dominate. He is openly saying that unless white men are in the majority, he feels weak and useless. That’s beyond pathetic. If I weren’t so ragey, I’d feel sorry for him.
I can’t find much pity for him, because this isn’t the first time he’s shown himself to be one of the Kings of Ain’t Shit Mountain. I was unpacking a few boxes that hadn’t touched since moving to the Midwest and found that I owned one of the Dilbert books.
Apologies to the made up on the spot gods of literature, but I threw that shit away. I didn’t want anyone else to have it, either.
