Being White & OK With It May Be A Criminal Offence.

Basingstoke 'Itís okay to be white' posters spark investigation



Posters saying "It's okay to be white" have sparked a police hate crime 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 are being treated as a hate crime.

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 they were liaising with local community groups as part of the investigation.

I'm not sure what the correct position for being white is.

Is it 'Not OK' to be white, & if not, why?

Would 'It's OK to be Black' or 'It's OK to be Asian' posters be considered a hate crime?
