OKLAHOMA CITY POLICE INVESTIGATING “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE FLIERS” AS POTENTIAL HATE CRIME

SOURCE: SUMMIT.NEWS

Police in Oklahoma City are investigating “It’s okay to be white” fliers that were posted at the Oklahoma City University School of Law as a potential hate crime.

Although authorities acknowledge that the fliers were “not believed to be a threat” and that posting them wasn’t a crime because no property was damaged, the individual responsible is under investigation anyway.

“Investigators are trying to determine his intent and whether the actions are a hate crime,” reports the Associated Press.

Law school Dean Jim Roth said the OCU is “intentional and relentless” in supporting diversity and the hatred and exclusion “will not be tolerated.”

Meanwhile in another incident, a sign that read “It’s OK to be white” was hung on a bridge over a highway in Massachusetts. A local ADL spokesman said the message “excludes people” and “targets people.”

“Being white is such an advantage in society and to suggest otherwise is just straight out racism,” said a man who tore the banner down.

As we previously highlighted, the whole thing was a product of 4chan trolls who sought to repeat their stunt of posting the fliers on Halloween to bait the media into whipping up another moral panic about racism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, here's the deal for me; I look ... very European, because my ancestors' DNA was from a very small part of the pond, and as far as I know, that was from Denmark; Ireland; France; England; and Austria (and I have to shake my head at the timing of my Austrian ancestors' immigration, because Johann and Johanna made that pilgrimage, and became citizens, smack dab in the middle of the American civil war! Guys, PLEASE, what the HECK were you thinking?!?!?)

Now, that being said, does this make me better, smarter, more attractive, more deserving of anything, including privilege, than anyone else around me?!?

HELL, NO!! I'm just... Claire, period, end of discussion; and at 70, looking for a couple of choral conductors who "get me", and how and why I write the choral works I love to create, and just may program them one day; and even at this late age, I remember that wonderful line from the great American poet, Emily Dickinson, and that line is, "I dwell in possibility."

And THAT being said, I believe that we are all brothers and sisters on this journey through life, and for me, that means that we have a spiritual responsibility to lift each other up, in the best, most encouraging, and most loving way we can; my way is through the creation of music, and hoping that it touches hearts and minds, and fills people with love and hope and beauty, and that it might positively reflect on how they chose to live their lives, after hearing it.

There is a wonderful anecdote, in the French Christmas tradition, and the name of the tale is that of "the little juggler." And it paints this incredible picture of all the "beautiful people" lined up to pay homage to the Christ child, with incredible, luxurious gifts.

Well, in walks this little waif of a kid; no fancy clothes; no great gifts, and all of the monied people are looking down their collective noses at the boy, asking themselves and one another just what this child possibly believes he has, which could outshine what they have brought!?!

And yet, a way is made, so that the Infant Jesus can see what the child is doing, so the child takes several balls out of his pocket, and begins to juggle; and the Christ child, watching this, somehow knows that this is the greatest gift He could have possibly been given by this kid..... and smiles radiantly, an a way that says, "thank you"; the crowd is both stunned and elated, to have witnessed what had happened.

I "juggle notes and sounds" and sincerely hope that one day, they will also be met.... with smiles :-)
