Life is now a minefield of symbology. The Anti-Defamation League has identified the following common symbols as “hate symbols“. Shockingly, many of the symbols are in common, every day use.

  • 100%
  • 109
  • 12
  • 13
  • 14
  • 18
  • 28
  • 311
  • 318
  • 38
  • 43
  • “5 words”
  • 511
  • 737 (Who knew that Boeing is white supremacist organization?)
  • 83
  • 88 (The telegraphic abbreviation for “love and kisses” is now a hate symbol)
  • 9%
  • The Confederate Flag (while used by non extremists as a symbol of southern heritage and history, it is now defined as a white supremacist symbol)
  • HSN (formerly known as Home Shopping Network, is now a racist gang symbol)
  • The mathematical “not equal” symbol consisting of an equals sign with a slanted line through it is now a white supremacist symbol. As a computer scientist who was one class shy of a double degree in mathematics, this means writing math terms marks computer scientists and mathematicians as white supremacists.
  • The “Okay” hand gesture
  • Pit bull
  • ROA, previously known in finance as “return on assets”
  • Thor’s Hammer (yes, Avengers is a white supremacist movie)

There we have it – everyone is now an accidental white supremacist.

This movement to term common terminology as hate symbols was made possible by social media.
