It ' s okay to be white or It ' s OK to be white (IOTBW) is a slogan based on a poster campaign organised on the American imageboard 4chan in 2017

It ' s Okay to Be White was a poster campaign spearheaded by 4chan's /pol/ and other far-right groups, such as The Daily Stormer, in November 2017. This campaign counters the context of the perceived "reverse racism" and society trying to make a privileged majority "guilty"

Posters saying "It's okay to be white" have appeared outside the offices of two federal MPs who were among the most strident in criticising Government senators for voting for a motion declaring the same.

Both South Australian Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young and West Australian Labor MP Anne Aly, whose offices were targeted, have taken to social media to complain about the posters.

Earlier this month, Coalition senators voted for a motion moved by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson calling for the Senate to acknowledge the "deplorable rise of anti-white racism and attacks on Western civilisation" and that "it is OK to be white" — a phrase commonly used by white supremacists.

The following day, Prime Minister Scott Morrison described his senators' support for the motion as "regrettable".

The Government's Senate leader Mathias Cormann blamed an "administrative error" and Coalition senators voted against the motion the second time it was put up.

The posters appeared outside Senator Hanson-Young's office in Pirie Street, in Adelaide's CBD, this morning.

The catchphrase “ it ’ s okay to be white ” began life on the 4chan message board but has since popped up on flyers and posters in numerous major cities. The signs were also posted around numerous universities and schools across America and Canada, leading one high school principal to claim the

"Pauline Hanson's cheer squad spreading this white supremacist slogan in Adelaide is a direct attack on our welcoming, multicultural community."

Senator Hanson-Young said she had referred the posters to police, although she was unclear what crime might have been committed.

"Sadly, Pauline Hanson and One Nation have given licence to spread this hate," she said.

"The person who put these signs up should be ashamed of themselves.

"It is good to see many of these signs have been ripped down by decent people who will not stand for this divisive language being used in our streets."

NSW Nationals to purge white supremacists and neo-Nazis from party ranks

NSW Nationals to purge white supremacists and neo-Nazis from party ranks The NSW Nationals will write to 20 members asking them to justify why they should not be expelled from the party over their alleged links to white supremacist and alt-right movements. But the party's state director Ross Cadell admitted it was impossible to track down and get rid of all members with extremist views. The party has investigated about 35 members, after the ABC revealed a push by people involved in the alt-right movement to join mainstream Australian political parties, in order to influence their policy agendas from within.

White supremacy or white supremacism is a racist supremacist belief which maintains that white people are superior in many ways to people of other races, and that therefore

Posters proclaiming “ IT ’ S OKAY TO BE WHITE ” have been appearing on college campuses and on city streets across the country this week, prompted by an anonymous chat-room comment that suggested the message would feed social unrest and sway white Americans to far-right ideologies.

"When our leaders use white supremacist and neo-Nazi slogans in Parliament, and when the Government votes in favour of them, this happens," she said.

"It's okay to be you, whoever you are; but this racial intimidation and harassment is not okay."

The posters were not placed on the windows of Senator Hanson-Young's office, which is seven floors above ground level.

In Parliament on October 16, Dr Aly said it was "not okay to adopt white supremacist neo-Nazi mantras in this Parliament".

"Instead of joining Labor to condemn this silly motion and what can only be described as another 'look at me' stunt by Pauline Hanson and One Nation, the leaders in this Government instead issued a mealy-mouthed statement because they're embarrassed by their own Muppet show that continues to let down Australians and fails to represent a modern multicultural Australia," she said.

Not everyone on social media agreed with Senator Hanson-Young's criticism of the posters.

Twitter user "Vladesch" said it was "such a silly fuss over a sentence which is clearly true".

"That is unless you think its (sic) not ok to be white," they said.

"Then you must ask yourself if it's ok to be black. And if its (sic) not ok to be black then you're clearly a racist.

"But if its (sic) ok to be black and not white you're also a racist."

Nationals ban 22 members for life after investigation into neo-Nazi links.
"Who knows who will try and join tomorrow vigilance is ongoing."
