‘It’s okay to be white’ posters found on American River College campus

Nov 11, 2018 by

At least two posters proclaiming “It’s okay to be white” were found Thursday at American River College.

Los Rios Community College District spokesman Gabe Ross said maintenance staff spotted some fliers with the slogan at about 1:30 a.m. and reported them to campus police. They were immediately taken down, Ross said, though student paper American River Current reported finding additional signs later in the morning.

“With everything going on in the world it’s a particularly charged time,” Ross said. “I think that regardless of the specific interpretation … it clearly had the potential (to be), and was frankly, incendiary for some who saw it.”

The signs appeared to be printed on standard letter paper and did not include imagery or color. They were found outside the football stadium and near the door of the campus gym, the Current reported.
