It used to be the sign for "Ok", then it became a "Gangsta" sign now it's for the Oi Oi's? Idiotic? Yes, Sad? Yes. Just so wrong? Yes. Give it back to people who used it as an "Ok" sign please.

It means Okay in NZ sign language as well.

Unfortunately white supremacists have claimed it and the Christchurch terrorist used it in court. Hopefully it just goes away as a thing.

This is where people forget that context is important. Especially for symbols like this. 

Just because a white supremacist used it in one context, shouldn’t mean nobody should be allowed to use it in other contexts. 

Allegedly

Exactly. It's not even really a symbol for white supremacy - it was widely used among youth (for its intended purpose, mind) around 3-4 years ago, which led to media fearmongering stories as all teenage trends do. Pranksters picked up on this and started joking around pretending it actually was one, which led to white supremacists ironically using it. It's all a massive sharkpost, basically. Short sighted to 'ban' a universally recognised symbol that's been in use for eons

The whole thing is a troll just like the Pepe meme and then it got bigger from there. Hopefully it'll die off when Trump does https://medium.com/s/story/does-the-ok-sign-actually-signify-white-power-or-what-6cf3309df985

Why the heck would anybody want to use a symbol that is being widely used by white supremacists, regardless of context or other meanings.

you could ask the same thing in reverse - ie why would white supremacists pick a symbol that is widely associated with peace or some none threatening thing? The answer seems pretty obvious to me.

The morons discrediting and smearing Katie Bouman (leader of the team who generated the first picture of a black hole) because "she's only making headlines cuz she's a woman". These people wouldn't even bat an eye if the headlines were "the young man behind the first picture of a black hole". It's really sad her coworkers have to come out an defend her

Calling it "Good Friday" when 2019 years ago allegedly, a good guy got nailed to a cross? How is that good?
