What if a black person used various inks to make themselves look white? I don't see many warnings about how it may offend someone?
What if a Mexican person did the same? And if a guy dresses as a woman? What if someone dresses themselves fat and carries a hamburger, and declared themselves and American?

And many dress as football players, what if this year they took a knee at each porch? And dressed as Trump and purposely make your face orange?

Is there ANYTHING out there that exists that someone can't claim to be offended by? What if someone wore a black outfit, with a white collar and carried a crucifix? Gonna be mad simply because someone is acting religious?

Now we have to have baby gatherings in safe places to discuss what may harm our delicate little feelings. :rolleyes:

College costume crackdown ramps up as Halloween draws near

As another Halloween season approaches, an ever-growing universities are cracking down on offensive costumes, even hosting panel discussions to instruct students on what to avoid.

Many schools are participating “Culture not a Costume” poster campaign, which aims to dissuade students from "appropriating" elements of other cultures with their costumes.

At other schools, administrators have gotten involved more directly, sending emails to the student body urging students to eschew "culturally insensitive" guises.

As another Halloween season approaches, an ever-growing universities are cracking down on offensive costumes, even hosting panel discussions to instruct students on what to avoid.

Humboldt State University, for instance, plans to host a discussion Monday on how “cultures are disregarded, mocked, or simply dehumanized” by Halloween costumes, encouraging students to avoid “cultural appropriation” in their costume selections.

Several other schools, such as Oregon State University, Michigan State University, and the University of Colorado-Boulder, will host similar discussions on the meaning of “cultural appropriation” in the context of a “critical examination of Halloween costumes.”

Princeton University, meanwhile, recently offered a “conversation circle” to students to help them “engage in a dialogue about the impact of cultural appropriation, Halloween, and why culture is not a costume.”

At still other schools, administrators have chosen to get involved in the discussion directly.
