    When OK is not Okay anymore

    Has the OK sign become a symbol of white power in the minds of the liberals? Is this a fake impression held by the liberals due to a spoof by the 4chan? Were teens playing upon this spoof in mockery of the liberal school administration? All this will all be answered on the next episode of SOAP [a 70s sitcom].

    https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/high-...204500230.html
    A high school in a Chicago suburb is spending more than $53,000 to reprint its 2018-2019 yearbook after staff discovered photos inside in which students were flashing the white supremacist “OK” hand sign.

    Administrators at Oak Park and River Forest High School released a statement last week notifying parents that they were withholding the yearbooks from distribution after they discovered the photos, according to CBS Chicago.

    This week, the Chicago Tribune reported that the high school will pay Jostens $53,794 to reprint the books and that the new versions are expected to be delivered to students by mid-June.

    The racist adaptation of the “OK” hand sign began on 4chan ― an anonymous message board frequented by racists, trolls and extremists ― and has since been co-opted by prominent white supremacists who often use it to signal their presence to like-minded extremists. It’s prominent enough that those who use it have been fired from their jobs or faced other consequences ― recently, a Chicago Cubs fan was banned indefinitely

    What’s all this, you ask? Doesn’t that look sort of like an “ok” sign? What in the world has that got to do with white power?

    Get out of here with those reasonable questions. This is Twitter, where hysterics and politically convenient rumors are the currency du jour.


    Of course we should believe people “fluent in 4chan,” who insist the “ok” sign is actually used by white nationalists and the alt-right as a legitimate white power symbol. Because nothing screams credibility like being intimately familiar with what is effectively the anonymous sweaty groin of the internet, where critical thinking suffocates and myths grow like fungus.

    It started out as a joke to troll liberals on 4chan but then some white supremacists started legitimately adopting it as a symbol, first ironically then less ironically over time.

    That also happens to be the handshape for the number 9 or the letter F (depending on context) in American Sign Language. I had no idea that the Deaf community was so racist.
