Liberal college professors and students were scrambling to get to their safe spaces when the phrase “it’s okay to be white” appeared on a poster inside the Oklahoma City University law school.
“It hurts because Oklahoma City has had prior history of white nationalism, and the dangers of it. We sit two blocks south of the Memorial,” OCU Law grad Jose Cruz told News 4 in a totally serious tone. “So, I don`t think, we talk about the Oklahoma standard. There`s no space for that here.”
Yes, while groups like “Black Lives Matter” are championed by the left, the mere utterance of “it’s okay to be white” is enough to trigger an FBI investigation.
Earlier this month, flyers that said “it’s okay to be white” began showing up around the law school’s campus, and students were instantly offended. Why were they offended? Well, apparently they believe the phrase to be hurtful.
Authorities are searching for a man that posted multiple flyers around the Oklahoma City University School of Law campus that proclaimed “It’s okay to be white.”
Flyers were posted on benches, all over front building doors and around the school crest.
Current and former students said it was sad to see that kind of message around a campus that’s always been so inclusive.
These kids were so upset, the school’s dean had to issue a statement:
This morning, our administrative team was alerted to the presence of flyers around the law school campus. I want to thank every student, staff, and faculty member who took the time to remove them and bring them to our attention. We are currently in the process of investigating this matter and hope to have this resolved quickly.
In the meantime, I want to address the message that was posted. As you may have noticed, OCU Law has been intentional and relentless in celebrating the voices, achievements, and culture of our diverse community. We enjoyed celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, LGBTQ+ History Month, Dia de los Muertos, and are excited to kick off Native American Heritage Month. And we will continue to celebrate our diverse community throughout the year.
Despite what the intentions of that message may have been, the message reminds me of one fact that I know our community embraces – it’s okay to be EVERYBODY. Exclusion and hate will not be tolerated here. You are accepted at OCU Law no matter how you pray, what you look like, or who you love. And you always will be.

Hispanic heritage month? That’s okay. LGBTQRSTUV+ whatever month? That’s fine. Native American heritage month? Bring it on.
But “it’s okay to be white” is somehow hate speech…
Vincent James over at The Red Elephants spoke to a student who was expelled from the school, showing the letter the student received, and check out the video for a complete breakdown:
