Posters popped up on the University of Regina campus the other day simply stating: “It’s OK to be white.”
The antsy administration-types had those posters torn down because they think a phrase stating “It’s OK to be white” isn’t OK.
In a press release, U of R president Vianne Timmons stated:
“Simply put, these signs have no place at our university.”
So does that mean it’s not OK to be white?
An investigation has been launched to see if the posters violated the “respectful university policy”, but think about this allegedly egregious slogan for a second — if you’re in the white supremacy business, would you adopt “OK” as part of your branding?
And if things like race and colour are problematic, wouldn’t posters proclaiming “Black Lives Matter” also be in violation of U of R’s discrimination policy?
