As always, I look like a 14-year-old but I'm actually 22
    Is that the deliberate use of the white supremacist power symbol?

    Wow, I wasn't even aware of the possible meaning(s) of this hand gesture. Luckily, Google told me it also means 'Pico bello (OK gesture)'. It seems unlikely to me that she'd post the white supremacist symbol here (especially since she's not American- and I assume it's mostly used in America in such manner). (But good, I'll let her speak for herself in this case.)

    I await a confirmation or negating of such, from the member. Dog whistling is all the rage.

    I didn't know it was symbolic of anything other than 'okay'

    It’s mostly used as OK in America.

    In fact, unless one watches or associates with the minority of the population which is racist you may never see symbols abused to mean anything so dreadful.

    People are often naive about the state of the U.S. and its politics.

    Having read red evening apple's type me thread, I would be extremely surprised were that ok symbol a "dog whistle", and I detest discouraging sharing by newer members by accusing them of being bigots for seemingly no good reason.
