‘It’s Okay To Be White’ Signs Pop Up In Fort Worth Neighborhood

KTVT-TV, November 2, 2018

People in one north Fort Worth neighborhood woke up Thursday morning to several signs with a head-scratching message on them. {snip} “It’s okay to be white.”

The origin of the signs and the intended meaning of the words are a mystery, but some neighbors were quick to react and took them down because some perceived them to be discriminatory.


Councilman Cary Moon, who represents the district, said this all comes on the heels of a report sent to council members about other anti-immigrant and discriminatory signs and banners placed in other parts of the city.

“I condemn any type of literature sign that is posted that may be offensive to some folks,” Moon said.

By lunchtime Thursday, all of the signs were taken down, but Moon advised neighbors who see more of the same to call police immediately so they can investigate.

He said people taking them down themselves might interfere with investigations and collection of evidence.
