Halloween costumes

Why should people be careful when selecting Halloween costumes? They should because some of the costumes are insulting. The idea of "We are a culture not a costume" was introduced early on in the course. We looked at multiple things such as the cowboys and Indians party, and some images of costumes portraying different cultures in a biased manner. These costumes offend some people as they portray their culture in most often a very biased or negative manner and people should think about whether or not it could be offensive first. What are your views on this matter? And has it changed over the course?

  1. I agree that people should think twice about what they decide to wear for Halloween. My opinion hasn't really changed over the course though I still believe that costumes are harmless fun and as long as their not insulting a specific person they should be okay.
