Not OK"

The OK hand gesture, when the thumb and index finger form a peculiar ring, is included in the US list of extremist symbols. Thus, the way to show that “all is well” is now classified as a symbol of hatred.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a well-known Jewish civil rights organization in the United States, has added 36 characters to its Hate database, including the “OK” sign, noting that the opinion of those who favor White superiority. "
The director of the ADL Center for Extremism said in an interview that for many years, the OK sign has been used on some internet portals, memes, and other hate propaganda images. Given the number of white supremacists who accepted it, from now on this gesture "carries a vile message." “Context is always key,” he said. “I think it’s important for people to understand that the OK gesture can be used and is also used to express hatred.”
According to him, the number of people supporting hatred while using this gesture has increased; it can no longer be considered a joke. "In many ways, they took what was trolling and added it to their list of characters."
ADL created its Hate on Display database in 2000 to help track down extremist groups and their symbols to law enforcement officials, educators, and other members of the public hoping to spot potential warning signs of anti-Semitism and other forms of extremism. Since then, the database has grown to 214 records. The ADL CEO said the old characters, gestures and other images are quickly gaining "new, hateful associations that may be too obscure for the general public until they clarify this." "We believe that law enforcement agencies and the public should be fully informed about the meaning of these images, which may serve as the first warning sign of the presence of haters in society or at school," he said.
