Is it really "OK to be white"?


Topic Logo

Recommended Posts

So I read this article:

WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK

An online store has removed t-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “It’s okay to be white” after public backlash. The shirts were sold on Trade Me, a New Zealand auction website, by the manufacturer VJM

about how an online vendor banned sales of a shirt with the "It's OK to be white" slogan on it.  personally i think this whole thing is stupid - so far as I know the phrase wasn't racist until it was piked up by certain right-wing groups, so there's no reason to censor out of fear and a narrow understanding.

BTW i'm posting this here because i think it's a matter of language primarily and not politics
