It’s Okay to Be White…

Over the recent Halloween holiday, 4chan users gathered to create a “proof of concept” experiment to demonstrate that signs with the phrase “It’s Okay to Be White” posted in public places would be accused of promoting racism and white supremacy.

On October 23rd, 2017, the STOP/RESET YouTube channel uploaded a segment aired by the Boston television news station WHDH, reporting that police were investigating if white supremacists had placed signs featuring a picture of Uncle Sam with the caption “I want you to love who you are / don’t apologize for being white” at Boston College campus.

Starting on October 31st, 2017, posts began circulating on 4chan calling for viewers to place posters with the slogan “It’s Okay to Be White” in public places as a “proof of concept” that a “harmless message” would cause a “massive media shitstorm.”

Another article was written on November 1st by the Boston Globe and revealed that “officers are looking into the incident”.

4chan’s experiment worked; the children got a whole bunch of tricks for Halloween. Stay droesty folks.
