    I'm trying to do a mostly white hat site, it's been forever, excuse my noobness. Are links from sites that have "other resources" or "Links" still okay?

    Yes they're fine, ideally you get those links from relevant authority sites...

    Generic keywords is safe and still working good. But you use multiple generic keywords and direct link also.

    Many whitehat authority sites have pages for resources so their readers can learn more or conduct more research. Therefore, links from those pages won't hurt your site as long as they are from the said whitehat authority sites. Links from resource pages on spammy sites however might lower your rankings in Google.

    No. I have seen various case in points wherein links from "resource" or "link" pages have been marked as unnatural by Google.

    It's very good, indeed since the page will be on a relevant domain and it will also link to other relevant sites also.

    Ask yourself this: Why would they all the sudden NOT be okay?!?
    Seriously, how the hell do you imagine Google operates?

    Getting backlink from the "resource" or "Links" page is safe while they are related. Which means you get the referral traffic. So it will safe. So better you give the contextual link along with KW diversity.
