Recently, the well-known website, 4chan, contended that the hand gesture was a symbol for white power. In the past two months-in mid-March and in May-usage of the symbol as a sign of white supremacy has been reported in popular media, one instance occurred when the murderer of 51 Muslims in New Zealand displayed the symbol in court, and another occurred when a fan at a Chicago Cubs game displayed the symbol during a post-game broadcast (the Cubs have since identified the fan and have indefinitely banned him from attending games) What was once solely a playful symbol is in the process of being usurped by hate groups Our yearbook for the 2018-2019 school year contains six photographs of students displaying the 'ok' sign.

This timeline is important because it shows that the morphing of the symbol's meaning was just becoming known to a mainstream audience after the yearbook was finalized. So, while the intent of the usage of the symbol in the photographs was playful, the effect on readers can reasonably be quite different, given that the hand gesture has more recently also become a symbol of white supremacy.

 Payton Students, Faculty, and Parents,
 Our values matter. At Payton, we define
 these values as compassion, character,
 curiosity, and courage. And it is not enough
 to just speak of these values; we must act
 on them as well
 For years, the Circle Game has been a
 playful game, where a person makes the 'ok'
 sign with their hand and holds it below their
 waist. The simple goal is to get someone to
 look at the gesture. The game has had a bit
 of a resurgence this year.
 Recently, the well-known website, 4chan,
 contended that the hand gesture was a
 symbol for white power. In the past two
 months-in mid-March and in May-usage
 of the symbol as a sign of white supremacy
 has been reported in popular media, one
 instance occurred when the murderer of 51
 Muslims in New Zealand displayed the
 symbol in court, and another occurred when
 a fan at a Chicago Cubs game displayed the
 symbol during a post-game broadcast (the
 Cubs have since identified the fan and have
 indefinitely banned him from attending
 games)
 What was once solely a playful symbol is in
 the process of being usurped by hate
 groups
 Our yearbook for the 2018-2019 school year
 contains six photographs of students
 displaying the 'ok' sign. Let me be clear: it
 is fully believed that the intent of the
 students in the photographs was to be
 playful, as the Circle Game was actively
 being played around many campuses this
 academic year, including ours. The
 students in the images, the photographers,
 and students who have actively played the
 game throughout the year represent a broad
 cross-section of racial backgrounds,
 genders, ages, religions, and
 clubs/activities. Again, there is no reason to
 believe that the use of the symbol was
 anything but innocent fun.
 Further, it is important to note that our
 yearbook staff has designed a wonderful
 yearbook. They are to be commended for
 their work. To be sure, documenting the
 annual life of a school is lengthy and
 complicated. The yearbook staff has
 worked diligently to produce a
 commemoration that captures well our
 community's year together. They sent the
 layout to the publisher on April 1st, just days
 after the use of the symbol in New Zealand
 and well before the use of the symbol at the
 Cubs game. This timeline is important
 because it shows that the morphing of the
 symbol's meaning was just becoming known
 to a mainstream audience after the
 yearbook was finalized.
 So, while the intent of the usage of the
 symbol in the photographs was playful, the
 effect on readers can reasonably be quite
 different, given that the hand gesture has
 more recently also become a symbol of
 white supremacy. Of course, such
 symbology is completely antithetical to the
 values of our community; it is repugnant
 and odious and has no place at all in our
 Payton, American, and world communities.
 Period
 Our school resources and official publication
 will not be the home to symbology that is
