    Can this be said: White supremacy is okay. Killing nine is not.

    Can this be said:

    White supremacy is okay. Killing nine is not.

    Should I use a comma or a period?

    I think it would be a comma spice if it was used, but I am not a teacher.

    You could use a semicolon and a small "K".

    I think it is similar to "to err is human, to forgive divine". A comma works better.

    Yours is a set phrase. This one is not.

    In case any member should get the wrong idea, white supremacy is definitely not OK. It is abhorrent to any civilized person or society.

    Well said bhaisahab; as indeed is any form of racism or bigotry.

    Then is the following OK?
    'White supremacy is not okay, as is killing nine.'

    Not a teacher.

    No, "neither is killing nine".
