Thoughts on discriminatory Halloween costumes.
Personally I believe that the whole idea of 'cultural' Halloween costumes is blown out of proportion. People are taking these costumes that are apparently, 'offensive', way too serious. For example: People who are dressing up as a Geisha for Halloween are not trying to offend the culture, but embrace it. It is obvious that they are appreciating the culture rather than discriminating against it. There is no stereotype if they are calling themselves a Geisha. I think that these people who are targeting the 'cultural' costumes are just looking for a way to feel equal, but really it isn't necessary. It's all a personal opinion, but that's just mine.
