Hand Gesture is now Officially Racist
Article from The Daily Wire by Ashe Schow.
Making the “ok” hand symbol with your thumb and forefinger will now get you accused of racism.
CNN reported Thursday that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has added the symbol to its list of slogans and symbols used by racists. The group concedes that not everyone uses the symbol in a racist fashion, but enough people have that it can be included in its database.
So, because some bad people took part in the hoax, the rest of us need to be careful when we use a common hand symbol.
“We believe law enforcement and the public needs to be fully informed about the meaning of these images, which can serve as a first warning sign to the presence of haters in a community or school,” ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement.

People that worry about stuff like this need professional help. This is just totally ridiculous. Grow up, get a life.
Thank you and I agree with you 100%. People that have to come
up with stuff like this, really must live a dull life, I can’t feel sorry
for them but if they had a life they may even like themselves. Thanks
How udderly stupid!!!!!
What does it mean?
Don’t those using Sign language use this hand gesture? Are we going to start limiting Sign language gestures because of idiots?
Just more crap from the lunatic left.
That hand signal has NOTHING to do with race, it was devised by telegraph linemen to let their fellows know when a section was properly secured and connected, so the fellows could start on the next section while they moved on along the line, to get them strung and connected. And I refuse to bow to the leftist “snowflakes” who see some form of hate in everything!
Is a extended middle finger okay?
An extended finger has not been deemed racist as of today. This crap is utterly stupid, we should ignore these ignorant fools. But, if you meet one maybe you treat them as fools or would that be character shaming.
These democrats need to have there heads examined. I’m ashamed of the fact that I was one😛😜
Anyone who has studied the New World globalists knows that they have been using this ‘sign’ for generations as a reference to ‘the all seeing eye’. These clowns who call themselves ‘the conscience of America’ and who want desperately to be looked upon as ‘enlightened’, will do and say anything to make it look like they are special.
They are nothing but a bunch of wannabees!
actually, the ok sign has always been satanic, fingers trace out 666.
i guess adl figures get on the other side as people wake up
When pigs fly👌
I need to get a life it’s just another way of them trying to control everybody in what they say and what they do as far as I’m concerned they can stop it and when the time comes merry Christmas to everybody
Thank you, Bette!
That is supposed to be they need to get a life
The ADL doesn’t dictate to me how to conduct my life.
It hasn’t been long ago that a Cable news pundit showed film of a fan of a basketball game showing the okay sign, professing it was the code sign for white supremacists, only to be corrected by an African American player that it was the sign for a “three-pointer.” So this qualifies as enough to bar its use as the decades old use of the A-Okay sign? I think not.🤔
Censorship has always been un American.
Huh? Ok, 👌👌🏾👌🏿👌🏿👌🏻.
adl is that better?
These people are starting to make being a racist sound attractive. I mean, if it’s really the in thing to be gay or transgendered, being a racist must be the Pinnacle of cool. Am I right? Hey, I’m going to be using that signal all the time now just to piss people off. Wow, and to think the only thing I ever used it for in the past was to order a Ballantine.
