Elon Musk, Racist
I'm usually not one to see racism around every corner and under every rock, but this tweet by Elon Musk certainly fits the bill. Not only does he fraudulently diss socialism, his repugnant incorporation of two alt-right themes about Blacks (#1 - can't speak proper English; #2 - want "free stuff" from the government) to make his point is beyond the pale.

In addition to this PoS tweet, in Friday's Automotive News podcast, he simultaneously manages to bash Americans and promote a stereotyped view of Asians.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk lamented the “entitled” and “complacent” character of people in the United States, and lauded the “smart” and “hard working people” of China, in the first installment of a three-part interview with Automotive News’ “Daily Drive” podcast published Friday.
Specifically, Musk criticized New York and California -- states that have supported his businesses, especially Tesla, with considerable tax breaks, regulatory credits and other government help.
I guess genius always comes with a touch of madness. Much like his automobile's namesake, Nikola Tesla, Elon Musk sometimes makes valuable technology contributions while blithely espousing eccentric and even extreme personal views.
