“The Cubs concluded the gesture was ‘more likely than not’ racist in nature and issued a ban.”

I’m sorry, what?!

So if ✊🏿 is a black power symbol, is 👌 the white power symbol?

I can see emojis becoming somewhat problematic.

Can we have an "Equal Power" symbol that isn't used by swivel-eyed loons?

I thought that gesture meant something along the lines or “I agree”?

**** sake I prefer being an old man and not knowing any of this.

Everyone knows white supremacists don't go to baseball games... there was even a documentary about it.

This is what it actually means.

The Circle Game is a game of peripheral vision, trickery and motor skills. The game starts out when the Offensive Player creates a circle with their thumb and forefinger somewhere below his waist. The goal is to trick another person into looking at his hand. If the victim looks at the hand, he has lost the game, and is subsequently hit on the bicep with a closed fist, by the offensive player. Online, people have begun hiding hands making the circle symbols in various images to trick people into finding it.
