Really?

A "white supremacy sign"?  These people fell for this hoax?  And are spending tax payers' money to "virtue signal"?  As these people have shown themselves to be this stupid, they shouldn't be trusted with the education of kids.

Someone really needs to find out some facts here.

A high school in Chicago is spending $53,794 to reprint its 2018-19 yearbooks after school officials noticed photos of students making a hand gesture associated with white supremacist groups in the original copies.

Oak Park River Forest High School, District 200, had previously halted distribution of yearbooks that contained "18 photos of clubs or teams in which students of various races, ethnicities, genders, and grades made a hand gesture - an upside-down OK sign," according to a letter from Superintendent Dr. Joylynn Pruitt-Adams seen by INSIDER.
The upside-down OK sign circulated as hoax by 4chan users to falsely promote white supremacy in 2017, but in the last year, white supremacists have started using it as a symbol of white power, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
