Opinion: Letters To The Editor
June 12th, 2019 10:08 AM
I am writing to express my opinion on a Boy Scout requirement and the OPRF yearbook. I believe that it is not only stupid to thrust the financial burden of reprinting the yearbooks on the taxpayers, but it was also stupid to reprint the yearbook in the first place. It was reprinted as about 20 pictures contained people making the "OK" hand symbol.
This symbol is misinterpreted as a symbol of white supremacy by many, who are clearly all extremely stupid. The use of the symbol for white supremacy stemmed from 4chan, where they made it all up to prove that most media outlets don't research anything and will eat up any B.S. they think will make a good story. I ask you to try and find any person of color who is legitimately, sincerely, offended by this symbol and doesn't understand that it is a common symbol used in the "circle game".
I disagree with the decision to reprint the yearbooks in the first place, let alone use tax money to do so.
