From WHIO:

The gesture made to signal “OK” is now considered a racist hand gesture, according to the Anti-Defamation League, an international Jewish nongovernmental organization.

CNN reported that the ADL added the symbol, along with 35 others, to its ongoing Hate on Display Hate Symbols Database.

According to the ADL, the gesture, in which the index finger and thumb connect to form a circle and the pinky, ring and middle finger stick straight out, was labeled a white power symbol as a hoax.

Check out what even the “dictionary” is saying is racist and offensive because it is often used by conservatives and Libertarians…

Reactions:

Wrong century but hey, the dictionary isn’t supposed to necessarily get facts straight

If conservatives and libertarians use something it appears racist. Didn’t you know? Honestly this isn’t the first time I have heard this.

Actually the big takeaway is the correlate conservatism/libertarian with racism.
