Two Alt-right Members Accused of Flashing White Power Sign at White House

Two members associated with the alt-right movement have stirred controversy online after flashing a hand symbol in the White House press room that some have claimed is a white supremacist symbol, the Independent reported Sunday.

Cassandra Fairbanks, a reporter for state-owned Russian news agency Sputnik, and freelance journalist and conspiracy enthusiast Mike Cernovich, were snapped making the controversial symbol in the White House media room in May.

Journalist Cassandra Fairbanks however refuted the claim, citing her Peurto Rican heritage. “White power!!!!!!! Except I'm Puerto Rican. Can it be PR power?!” she tweeted.

While for many the symbol means nothing more than an "a-okay," since a meme depicting the allegedly anti-Semitic Pepe the Frog  flashing the symbol began being circulated on alt-right channels on social media in 2015, the symbol has taken on more sinister undertones. Apparently, the three raised fingers form a "W" and the "P" is formed by the index finger and thumb, standing for "white power."

Interesting... So according to the article, the girl is flashing "wp" for white power. However, the guy is flashing "qw" and I have no idea what that stands for.
