(JTA) — The OK hand gesture and the bowl-cut hairstyle are among 36 new entries to the Anti-Defamation League’s online listing of hate symbols.
The new entries include white supremacist symbols adopted in recent years by the alt-right segment of the white supremacist movement.
The OK gesture began as a hoax but became a symbol of white supremacy, according to the ADL.
Such symbols have appeared at white supremacist events, frequently appear online and have also spread into other more popular mainstream platforms.
ADL created the Hate on Display symbols database in 2000 as part of its effort to track hate groups.
