"[T]he media and 'anti-racism' advocacy groups increasingly label innocuous items as 'hate symbols,' including... the 'OK' hand sign."

Really? Since I've never been on Facebook, and never will go on Facebook, and don't give a whit about any so-called social media (except our own NV.org and WB.com, if you want to call them social media), I was not aware that the universally-accepted hand sign for "OK" is now a hate symbol.

The "hate" experts at the Jewish, so-called Southern Poverty Law Center ask this question:

Does the sign, the thumb and forefinger joined together in a circle, the remaining three fingers splayed out behind, mean “all’s good?” Or does it mean “white power” instead?" https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/201 ... wing-troll

What is the next symbol for hate going to be, coming from a White person, as defined by the media and "anti-racism" advocacy groups? Thumbs up? Especially if accompanied with a wink?

You should have seen them around here on St. Patrick's day. I didn't know until then that my "kiss me, I am Irish" t-shirt was hateful.

Many of the new symbols in the database are associated with the alt-right, and several are popular on anonymous message boards, including 4chan and 8chan, according to the ADL. Some of the images and slogans have spread to mainstream websites, such as Facebook and Twitter.

“These are the latest calling cards of hate,” Mark Pitcavage, senior fellow at ADL’s Center on Extremism, said in a statement. “While some hate symbols are short-lived, others take on a life of their own and become tools for online trolling.”

The ADL resisted adding the “okay” symbol to its Hate on Display database, which also includes swastikas, the Aryan Brotherhood’s logo and the Nazi Party’s flag. The idea that the gesture, made by touching the thumb and forefinger, secretly symbolizes white supremacy began as a troll campaign by some segments of the political right and far-right to incite a reaction from liberals and the media....
