I guess I don't get it. Why was Chicago triggered? What's wrong with the foam hand thing?

Its like i said about California.....when you are leaving...check to make sure you have ur billfold.....cause you don’t want any reason to go back....
Who decided it was a white power sign...the f'ing liberal press???,....its the "ok" sign that people have used since they had hands...
Me n my kids did it-all the time....
"OK JOE" with that sign ( nobody is named joe...so, guess that name must be raciest too)...o and still do!!!
I guess for bama it means shooting 3pointers is racist.. and the officials are racist .... if someone makes a 3...
Damn world has gotten stupid...

F Chicago....and all things associated....

Funny. I’m staying in a hotel this week across the street from Wrigley field. Hotel rates downtown were insane this week. Never been up to this part of town outside of baseball season. It’s quiet and depressing at night. I’ve been the only person in 2 different bars/restaurants during the evenings this week.

On a side note. They had a shooting/homicide outside a church last night just after a march for peace... These ironic stories are always sad.

It's a sad state of affairs when people have to look for things to make offensive. The "OK" symbol has been around since well before my time, and it means simply that. OK. There is enough trouble in the world, let's not add more to it.

When I was in the Marine Corps we would make that symbol, and if someone looked at it you got to punch them on the arm twice and call them a ###.

Maybe I have been hiding under a rock but I honestly did not know this was a thing until reading this thread.

Isn't that statement putting the cart before the horse.

It was this "woke culture" that started this shit about the "OK" sign.
We saw people complain about this clique and their desire, or need if you will, to preach and mandate "this is how you're supposed to think."

Now, it's become a joke bigger than it was in its origin.

You couldn't be more correct, Josh, when you label this as some "stupid shit." However, pointing to those complaining about being constantly exposed to storylines such as this one ... they aren't the ones starting it. To me, they're pointing out the idiocy. Personally, I though the NBA and China ordeal would have shed a little light on where a lot of those complainers are coming from and allowed you to at least get a glimpse into their line of thinking.

It was not. It was morons on 4chan and others that turned it into a racist thing.

Not a single person brought it up, in regards to the Alabama three-point foam hand, until Mr. "Leave Politics Out of Sports" decided to make a damn Tweet about it to start some shit. Ya know, the same guy that decided to bring up Tebow being a Virgin just because... yeah lets keep it just about sports...
