More Chicago Schools Freaking Over Circle Game Photos

I mentioned a different Chicago school the other day. It’s almost like the kids are, get this, playing a game, not virulent white supremacists

‘Circle game’ gestures found in Oak Park middle schools’ yearbook photos

Oak Park District 97 officials are discussing their next steps after finding photos of students making the “circle game” hand gesture were found in both of its middle schools’ yearbooks.

A May 29 letter sent to families by Brooks Middle School Principal April Capuder and Julian Middle School Principal Todd Fitzgerald confirmed images showing students using the upside-down “OK” hand gesture were printed in both sets of yearbooks.

The discovery comes the same month Oak Park and River Forest High School chose to spend more than $53,000 to reprint about 1,750 student yearbooks after photos of students making similar gestures were found.

The hand gesture, commonly referred to as the “circle game,” began as part of a juvenile “made-you-look” game, but has been appropriated in recent years by white supremacists.

The article even mentions later that it was a joke to punk the media. Looks like it’s still working.

Another Chicago-area high school will reprint yearbooks because of ‘OK’ sign photo controversy

The “circle game” has turned into an end-of-year headache for Chicago’s Walter Payton College Prep, which is paying more than $22,000 to reprint yearbooks without photographs of students making a hand sign that has been co-opted by white supremacists.

In the game, people flash the “OK” sign below the waist and try to get others to look.

“Our school resources and official publication will not be the home to symbology that is now being associated with white supremacy,” Principal Tim Devine wrote in a letter sent Wednesday to students, faculty and parents. “It is repugnant and odious and has no place at all in our Payton, American, and world communities.”

This article, also by the Chicago Tribune, fails to mention the 4Chan joke. Which, again, is working, as Devine goes on to lose his mind over kids playing a game.

Funny, the same people had no problem when Black Lives Matter were throwing up black power signs and saying black supremacist things for real.

    Would you be bothered if kids were just “flipping the bird” in their pics?

    They could end this quickly and easily if any of these soyboy libtards had any balls. Just make the parents of the kids doing it pay for the reprint. Same goes for flipping the bird or if some idiot raises a clenched fist.
