Up until this was brought up, I have never even heard a faint whisper about this linking to white supremacy groups.
This is absolutely ridiculous. And you cannot enforce something like this. Kelly, you're using your privileged position as a white member of a predominantly white organization to stay ignorant of the fact that sorority/fraternity hands signs are NOT a new NPC-invented phenomenon. I echo the disbelief from my sisters above. That may be compelling to make them want to stop doing it.” Compelling, indeed. That is absolutely ridiculous. ... You’re constantly correcting people’s hand signs because AOII’s and ours are so similar.
Well you're in luck, because here they come. The Kappa key symbol, and other sorority and fraternity hand gestures, are clearly not gang symbolism.
As an alum, I find this personally hurtful - no one asked me or my chaper how we felt about this decision, and it seems no other chapter or member were asked.
If anyone is interested in how this is perceived by people outside of our own organizations, simply Google "White girls flashing gang signs" or "White girls throwing gang signs.".

If you're going to base this decision on what may resemble "gang" behavior does that mean we should stop all wearing blue too as a symbol of our unity? In many Western cultures, this is a symbol meaning "great job", "yes", etc. You can change your preferences any time in your Privacy Settings. I am appalled that Kappas all over the nation are being asked to stop using their hand sign, which symbolizes the Kappa bond and sisterhood, because our sign uses two hands to create a symbol - which is the ONLY similarity between these two hand signs. When you take a moment to look at all the implications, hopefully those of you up in arms about this change will see the wisdom in maintaining a traditional "Kappa" persona at the public level. Blue is the color of the gang called the Crips. I'm not sure it is too far removed from a culturally insensitive theme for a social. Wow. If you don't like it, don't do it. As an Alumni member (Sigma Chapter, 1987), I am acutely aware that Kelly's job is to represent not just the Active members on college campuses; but also the Alumnae members some of whom are in their 80's and still active in their Alumni Chapters. Take the peace sign for example- it is a hand sign people throw up daily, but has a positive message.

While it isn't what being in a sorority is about, I remember as a PNM being excited about the idea of having future cute pictures with my sisters throwing up hand symbol that represented the amazing organization I would be a part of. No. Starting now, the Fraternity will no longer post any photos on our website or our official social media sites of members displaying this hand sign.

For years I have talked about this with others in the F/S community and was confused and sometimes upset by the use of hand signs by NPC sororities (of which I am a member, joined in 2003 and we never did hand signs at that time). If there is going to be a decision this large being made, the members of this organization should be consulted first. He sent me two images of this group “throwing what they know,” accompanied by the following explanation: “They’re throwing up the SS bolts, a common white supremacist symbol. It represents our bond that no one outside of this organization can understand. Additionally, it can be interpreted by other people who are not involved as something completely different than what it is meant to represent. Get up to 50% off.
