“It’s OK to be White” posters “offside” at U of Regina

David MenziesMission Specialist

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?

It’s OK to be white……anybody not OK with that….call the cops and insist that I be arrested.

For the life of me I don’t know why people would even consider going into debt to attend university and be treated like Jews in nazi Germany.

Multiculturalism and Marxist Bias in Academia – SWC Interviews Dr. Ricardo Duchesne

Multiculturalism, was imposed upon us in the 60’s and 70’s. In 1971, Canada was 96% European. Canada consisted of ‘many diverse ethnic European groups and some natives.’ There was no democratic vote to impose multiculturalism. Canadians didn’t ask for it, and were given no say. ‘It is an ideology to radically change the character of Canada.’

Dark spiritual forces are trying to imply that white people are to blame for all the ills of the world. They are playing on the lone wolves, who belong to the devil’s cult, and who are controlled by the mob mentality. They are mentally disturbed and can be manipulated into violence. Nobody chose the colour of their skin, and I’m sure not going to be ashamed for being born white. It’s what’s inside that counts, and your actions towards your fellow man. Those who think they can control the human spirit will have to take it up with God, because his spirit is alive and well, and he will deal with evil permanently when he comes again to judge the living and the dead!

When sharia patrols start up in Canada i am sure Andrew will make up some BS to deflect form that as well, meanwhile she would never dare go press lgbtq rights in front of a mosque.

Andrew i would like to see any proof that the phony hate crimes were not phony, please enlighten us. I suppose all black on black crime is a vast right wing conspiracy as well.

Andrew Stephenson you are a racist bigot. And quit excusing the FACT that whiners have to make up phony hate crimes as their claims are pure BS to begin with. You are justifying hate in your warped mind because you think a hate you endorse is excusable.

All knowing Andrew…..there you go again, you have enlightened the masses. What a clown you are, perplexing to say the least. A line from an author unknown, and I paraphrase :
“There are non more intolerant than those that scream tolerance.”

cis-genderd female. you mean straight female? Maybe maybe not, but there is no way I will use their language. I don’t recognize those terms.

Tammie, there is a lot of guilt and loathing going on in Justin’s ’current year, that is for sure.
Self-flagellating if you are white and Christian especially, is some sort of get out of jail free card in these race baiters minds. How damaged does your psyche have to be to hate yourself that much?
Andrew it really is okay.
commented 2017-11-30 21:30:47 -0500
Andrew seems to be a cis-genderd female who is completely indoctrinated, therefore, if she is white, holy crap, her ideology tells her to feel guilty until she dies!

The only supremacists in this country come from a portion of the Islamic community recently arrived or are post modernist leftwingnuts.

You’re not a race baiter are you Andrew?

Canada has always been majority Caucasian, it has never been NOT okay to be white until now. A Causation Canadian could get an inferiority complex, in Justin’s current year.

Andrew for crying out loud, nobody said being white is better than anyone else. Are you on some kind of medication? What an ignorant accusation. In Justin’s ‘current year’ it definitely is a perfectly normal response to say that it is okay to be white. We are being told it is not okay, in a thousand ways everyday in Justin’s current year. Not better, just here, because it’s our home and has been for a long time. Majority European heritage proud of it and would rather not be extinguished either by irresponsible immigration policy or post modernist clap trap. ‘White’ people have been happy sharing Canada with all sorts of colours for decades now, and quite peacefully thank you very much. The climate seems to be changing, and if there is a problem now we need to look at what has changed. It’s not us.

Its OK to be pink.

Andrew Stephenson… are you kidding me? Do you honestly believe what you wrote? “It’s OK to be white.” is a statement.. a completely true statement. The campaign was cooked up by a group of genius tier shitposters on 4chan who were not white supremacists, but rather sick to death of the race baiting left and political correctness. The joke is that people (like you) would take exception to the posters and throw a conniption (which you did) thus implying it ISN’T ok to be white.

Another example of gutless compromised inept university administrators – take public money out of every institution which does not obey Charter section 2(b). If you have issues with our nation’s guiding legal document, you forfeit public subsidy.

Andrew Stephenson, I guess you missed this story out of Edmonton Dec/16 Similar reports have cropped up around North America.
Hate crime hoax: Edmonton “white supremacist” caught on tape — and he’s black!:

Oh, I saw that. That’s the Veritas strategy at work, leak a staged video to try and discredit legitimate reports. The only real point of interest is how people seem to place higher credibility on things they agree with, when objectively it’s a lot harder to fake a video of known white supremacists hanging posters than it is to do a dramatic re-enactment of a poster hanging with an actor deliberately picked for discrepancy. .

“Progressives” are the biggest bigots there are. They see everything through the lens of identity politics.

Dear andrew… that is nothing but paranoid witch hunting. It’s ok to be white. Its ok to be gay. Its ok to be human. It’s ok to be whatever you are. Simple as that. Your argument is not ok, it is lunacy generated by marxists and individuals with political agenda

Marcuse asserts ’the telos of tolerance is truth whereas Alistair McIntyre argues it is not truth, its rationality! "to foreclose on tolerance is precisely to cut oneself off from criticism and refutation. It is to gravely endanger ones own rationality by not admitting ones own fallibility!:

“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”

Yes, it does, since they know overt expression will get the poster removed and the police called, so they tone it down so they can slide into the grey zone of plausible deniability that this very article advocates for. Ask what the actual intended message of the posters is. Nobody ever said it wasn’t OK to be “white” just that “white” isn’t naturally superior to anybody else. It’s not something most people need affirmation for. Why do they specifically call it out? “White” is a skin colour, not a cultural identity of any sort. You could argue it’s becoming somewhat of a dog-whistle term now.

By the way, Torontoist caught known white supremacists in the act of posting these very posters in that city.
