Are you white and have flashed someone the OK hand sign? You are a racist!

US Coast Guard member 'removed' after making 'offensive' OK sign on live TV

The U.S. Coast Guard says it “removed” a member from its Hurricane Florence response team Friday after he made an “OK” hand gesture on live TV that the service branch deemed “offensive.”

The unidentified team member was caught looking into the camera and then swiftly making the hand gesture, prompting a backlash on social media.

“We are aware of the offensive video on twitter - the Coast Guard has identified the member and removed him from the response. His actions do not reflect those of the United States Coast Guard,” the agency tweeted.

The Guard is now investigating the matter.

Perhaps they should investigate first? Just a thought.

You guys would not BELIEVE how many white supremacists we have in the stadium today! Every time the opponent is on 3rd down thousands of people raise their hands showing their white power pride!...

Saw a black lady this morning with a shirt that said.

"My Black is Beautiful"

I'm not sure if that meant she thinks some black isn't beautiful?

Anyway, would it be racist to have a shirt that said, "My White is Beautiful"?

That would greatly depend upon the context of which the message was construed and conveyed to and by those in the immediate.......never mind.

In a word, yes.

So if it says "My Black is Beautiful" is that racist?

Ya'll make fun because it is stupid but if people are offended maybe you say ok we should stop.

I know it's dumb that perception becomes reality but if option A is to come across as a racist jackass and option B is to be a decent human by doing absolutely nothing.

Let's say the opposition says doing this stupid thing makes you racist. 10 minuets before it didn't occur to do that but now you are told this makes you a racist. So you do it to prove you aren't racist but it pisses off people but you definitely aren't racist. They said if you do something you never thought to do makes you racist and your first instinct is to do something that verifys to the world you are racist. If your first instinct is to do something racist because people say its racist maybe you are racist.

Wow those are some mental gymnastics going on there. Seriously. It's a game and I know kids that play it work at a fast food place in town. Black, white, Asian. They all play it.
