Unsigned posters on white printer paper reading “It’s okay to be white” were spotted around campus this morning.

Two ripped papers were found posted with black tape to Davis Center doors around 8 a.m.

A third poster was found taped to a light post near the fountain on the Waterman green.

Pat Brown, director of student life, said he had not heard about the posters as of 10:30 a.m. today.

Enrique Corredera, executive director of University communications, said he was also unaware of the posters.

    What idiots have to be told this? Liberal ‘brainwashing’ has left children feeling guilty about just about everything, including who they are. Victimhood is now cherished by the Left as if it offers entry into a most exclusive club. So much b.s.

    WHY is this even an issue ? It hurts or insults NOBODY. It is merely a reactionary response to all of the recent anti-white racism, hatred and prejudice. It is also a rejection of the guilt trip being laid on “white” people (Americans) for building a country that spans a continent and developing the most successful, powerful and free nation the world has ever seen, and sharing its benefits with the world. The blatant anti-white racism is just as unacceptable as racism against ANY other group. It seems like the Left is against racism until it comes to their favorite target of hate speech and violence – “white” people. It seems the Left wants to include everybody as “people of color” unless that color happens to be “white”. It seems the left is all for diversity, unless it is diversity of thought or someone disagreeing with them. Saying “IT’S OK TO BE WHITE” is more benign than anything I’ve seen coming from Leftist groups. They have been pushing an anti-white, anti-male agenda for years now. If they actually look at the discrimination/civil rights laws, they will see that they are written so as to apply to EVERYBODY, and NOT just meant to be used against “white” people. Soon, the nation will see just how benign an “IT’S OK TO BE WHITE” sign is when the very laws used to stop racial discrimination, de-fanging scum like the KKK and the Neo-Nazis, are used against them and end up costing them millions of dollars and/or prison sentences. Racism/discrimination against “whites” is just as illegal as racism/discrimination against any other group. But that is what the Left will reap for trying to normalize ever more abhorrent behavior and violence against innocent people just because of their light skin. Instead of being critical of the people who posted some “IT’S OK TO BE WHITE” notices on a campus that is SUPPOSEDLY dedicated to diversity and intellectual development, I suggest they take a hard look at what they are doing themselves, and rid themselves of those encouraging anti-white, ant-male, anti-heterosexual hate filled drivel. They need to rid themselves of the hypocrites who commit macro-aggressions/crimes as they “protest” contrived so-called micro-aggressions.. They need to speak out against the radicals and extremists that scream ever louder over ever more petty issues and non-issues, and creating hard feelings where there should be none. I’ve been down the ‘fight against discrimination’ road before, while in the military. I fought the anti-white discrimination against a chain of command that was largely Black. I fought and won because i was able to prove to them that anti-white stuff was just as discriminatory and against regulations as anti-Black stuff was, and the regulations did not apply only to “white” people. Someone is going to do the exact same thing against those pushing the anti-white, anti-male, anti-heterosexual agenda in schools, colleges and the work force. They will win their case against those people, groups and even the schools themselves and cost them a lot of money and bad press at a minimum. Signs saying “IT’S OK TO BE WHITE” will then be seen as the Very petty issue it actually is.
