Looks like he posted a 2-hour long interview and said people should watch it before they respond. I'm curious to hear the context, but not that curious.

Without context, what he says certainly sounds racist - at the same time, as others have pointed out, it's interesting that everyone is all fired up about what he says, and not about the original poll.

The original poll isnít really anything new. Thereís a poll that takes place every couple years when black people overwhelmingly vote for a candidate based purely on the color of their skin, something that white people would be called racist for doing. If you are willing to excuse that because of past injustices, the Rasmussen poll doesnít really have anything to add.

Normally 2 seconds is out of context, 2 minutes is the context. He wants 2 hours to justify his racism and he doesnít deserve it.

The poll is fatally flawed, and even if the response could be replicated in a better poll, his response was still racist.

I wouldn't mind watching 10-15 minutes if that would give me a better idea of the context, can anyone link which part of the interview this comes up?

Counterpoint - looking at the first 50-100 comments for this video - you may have some extremists responding to the video, but I do not see even 1 comment from anyone saying they watched the video and came away with the feeling that Scott Adams is a racist.

I find that interesting.

I am trying to figure out the context on how being black makes you a hate group without being racist.

No I didn't. The quotes are 100% racist. Now if someone wants to claim they are out of context wouldn't it be their responsibility to provide the context?

But no, we should be nice to these people and not run away. 
If this is was the opposite, this would be national news for a month

They're pursuing criminal charges against kids for a minor schoolyard fight with no real injuries, just because it "may have been racially motivated"? Are you kidding me? Suspend the kids for a few days, give them a couple weeks detention, a major assignment, maybe some work detail - but criminal charges and jail time? Are they nuts? That's how you take a normal kid, or maybe a kid a bit on the unregulated spectrum and that has difficulties and some negative tendencies, and turn them into a criminal set up for a life of crime and poverty and gang activity and issues with the system.

I don't think this was a minor schoolyard fight -

1) at least one kid was punched in the head, and the perpetrators may have been older.

2) This wasn't a fight - this was a group that targeted students of a particular ethnicity, forced them into submission, dragged them into an area where they could be isolated without protection or support or hope of being saved, and then terrorized them into mouthing what they wanted.

Again, flip it around - what if everything had been the opposite - white students doing all this to black students, and forcing them to say that "All lives matter." I don't think anyone would disagree that is horrifying?

Of course it is horrifying but once again it comes down to politics shapes the view.
There is a reason that of most the support for Dilbert is coming from the right.
