Yes, it's stupid. Apparently a white racist group recently started using the OK sign,, so leftists jumped on all whites using it, must be racist, just like the word Nigger, only protected groups are allowed its use.
The funny thing is, I remember reading back in the very early sixties, that OK, was actually an African word used by slaves from Niger, but it didn't mean what they they thought it did.
Like when Vietnamese said Me-gook, they weren't describing themselves. Most had never seen a white guy in person and it actually means round-eye, a descriptive of white American soldiers, but GI' started calling them gooks anyway.

One can only imagine what OK meant. Probably something like "I do it now, but when you sleep, I kill you and steal your horse, OK?" :lol:

The old history book I read it from also said that slave traders were generally not a very bright lot and couldn't say Ni-jeer, spelled Niger, so they ignorantl called them niggers.
If blacks had been smart about this back in the 50, 60s, or even as late as the 70s, they could have have usurped the term and turned it back around and wore it with pride, exposing the ignorance of the ones calling the name.

But Noooo, the left uses everything as a tool for division and PC speech.
I tend to ramble when I first wake up. Sorry.

OK, I'm done rambling. Was that racist? :lol:
