The findings were't reported with the same enthusiasm with which the accusations were reported.

False claims of racism? Get outta here...

go back and read my post I said sometimes the okay signal is considered a white supremacist symbol and sometimes it's not. Obviously the military was concerned enough to investigate. Snarky snarky snarky

The three stooges were up in arms and wishing for racism. The disappointment is evident.

if they didn't "investigate" they would be knee-jerk labeled "racist" by your ilk

They already were before the investigation was started. Pretty Sad if you ask me.

Those bitching about the racial divide constantly, need to look in the mirror to see what the cause is.

The use of the gesture as a racist message originally started as a hoax, but has since been adopted in earnest by actual white supremacists and members of the so-called "alt-right. Per anti defamation league.

Investigate and determined it wasnt their intent. I can accept that.

and I guess you missed the point where the okay symbol has been co-opted by white supremacist and that the administrators at West Point in the Naval Academy did the right thing and investigated.

Wayne, if I were to fix this for you It would add that it was a hoax for a reason. It was to lay fake bait for Democrats and watch them run with it. Guess what? They took the bait,gut hooked they ran with this hoax.

Does this sound familiar Wayne?

The kids in our elementary school play this circle game all the time. They are constantly flashing the OK sign to each other. We better investigate.

Was there any evidence, other than the usual nonsensical shrieking from the snowflake social justice warriors, that this was ever anything but the circle game?

The left needs to take a big, deep breath, and mellow out. Aren't they all into pot and yoga and Feng Shui? It's not working...

So therefore anyone who flashes the OK sign, needs to be investigated? You should see the kids at the bus stops in my town flashing that sign at each other, you'd conclude my town is one big Klan sanctuary.

it's a well-known racism symbol along with being the okay sign and part of the game. The administrator saw it so they decide to investigate.
