A rather innocuous sign post has some residents of the hyper-politically correct town of Beaverton, Oregon, clutching at non-existant pearls, while miraculously wringing their hands at the same time.
As seen by a handful of residents in the Portland suburb, a non-descript piece of white paper using a rather unremarkable font plainly states, “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE”.
Predictably, as our British friends say, some of the Beavertonians are in a bit of a strop.
As reported by KOIN-TV of the Dandelion People’s Republic of Portland reports;
It isn’t a threat and it isn’t actively promoting violence but a flyer that’s been making the rounds in a Beaverton neighborhood has some people upset over it’s message.
The flyers, which say “It’s OK to be white,” have popped up on power poles and street lights in the Sexton Mountain area.
One neighbor told KOIN 6 News that part of town is a melting pot and she wants everyone to feel safe.
“On a lamp post there, it was just right smack in my eye line like someone put it there intentionally,” Mary Elizabeth Summer said. “I instantly ripped it down.”
Summer couldn’t believe she found the flyer just down the street from her front door. She said it upset her so much, she took it home and ran it through the shredder.
Others in the neighborhood have spotted them too.
Point of order, Mr. Chairman… did not KOIN cite in the very first sentence that the rather basic message was neither threatening nor agitating violence in any way, shape or form?
Yes, KOIN did cite that.
However, Mary Elizabeth Summer is milking her 15 minutes for all it’s worth;
“I am married to a half black woman and this neighborhood is very culturally diverse,” Summer said. “We have Indians, we have Jewish people, every color you can imagine. If it were me and I was coming up the street of my neighborhood and I saw that, I would not feel safe and I don’t want any of my neighbors to not feel safe.”
Point of order, Mr. Chairman… the message wasn’t that whites are better, or more intelligent, or superior in any fashion. It’s painfully obvious that the message is quite clear, “it’s okay to be white”. Nothing more, nothing less.
Yes, it really is that simple.
In regards to the races and ethnicities that Summer cited, the message propagated by the flyer in question would also deem that Beaverton’s black people, Indian people, Jewish people, etc., it really is okay for them to be who they were born.
Below, I’ve posted a video with the curious name of “It’s NOT OK to be white!”.
On a personal note, there was a time in my life I grew-up with seven people in a one-room house, so you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t buy-off on Bernie Sanders’ anti-white stereotypes.
Also, my bank account is quite upset with me. It seems that no one has deposited my white privilege check yet.
