‘It’s Ok To Be White’ Poster Sparks Hate Crime Investigation


Posters saying “It’s okay to be white” have sparked a police investigation.

They were found on lampposts in two roads in Basingstoke and near Basingstoke College of Technology.

Hampshire Constabulary was alerted to the posters by a resident on Thursday and said they were being treated as a “hate incident”.

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has arranged for the posters to be removed.

Resident Priya Brown said: “These tactics are divisive and they have no place in today’s world. They’re tactics that are used to divide deliberately by neo-Nazi groups and white supremacy groups. It started in the US but we have seen it here in the UK.”

A spokesperson for the police force said it was liaising with local community groups as part of the investigation.

    So it’s not ok to be white? What if I’m half White? Is that ok? Only a mentally demented racist commie thinks that

  2. AE Brown says

    This is freedom of speech. It is in no way a hate crime. What is the difference between “It’s Okay To Be White” and “Black Lives Matter” posters? Total and blatant discrimination against anyone who is white?
    Law enforcement should be investigating the evil behind those people who see this as a hate crime.

    Childish b/s from start …all the way thru investigation and yes even reporting on it .

    Why are these type of miscontents trying to create more problems than they solve. They are intensifing negative race relations. Can’t they find something better to do that will benefit everyone? How many people were asked before they were born what color they preferred to be? We are what we are and that can’t be changed.

    I don’t think it’s childish reporting on it at all because I like to know what is happening in the world where I live .

    hey, there’s a hang man noose in my garage. don’t forget that white people under This government is the biggest threat to mother earth. and prior to Biden’s fake presidency, he said, he would change the demographics of America and get rid of white people, white majority in population. White people are under attack. And there is NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING WHITE. if so, then whoever you are you’re a RACIST Communist twisting lies to stupid people.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off
    the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
    with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let
    you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos
