Happy Non Racist,Non Offensive and Non Stupid Halloween

Healing, fixing and getting back to the roots of the crisis.
We try compulsively to make all the efforts to get things done, said, accounted for, and do them right.
Without thinking we immediately ask for more space and time to comprehend the symptoms, and situation.

Time is relative we say, but relative to what? Do we need a specific amount of it or an eternity?
At this Halloween time, please take some time to consider your costumes.
Remember a race or a culture is not a costume and remember if you really do love a specific culture, you would take some time to know more about it and thus show your appreciation of it, you don't show your appreciation of a race/culture by painting your face or body black (see Blackface), Tribal paints ( see Native Americans) or white (see Geisha).
Cheers to a very happy and creative Halloween to everyone who is celebrating.
Please chek out my Youtube video on how to not be that insensitive person.

Don't be these people, please don't!!!

  2. Some things would seem to be common sense but I have learned it is not. I advise people to stick to dressing up as fictional characters. If you are dressing up as a representation of a group of people, it is probably inappropriate and offensive.

  3. So true, people use Halloween as an excuse to be their offensive self. I don't play those games and I have veto power over any costume my kids choose.

  4. How timely is this post. I'm glad you're bringing attention to this. People need to respect others cultures and differences. I live in the Middle East and cringe when I see people wearing male Muslim clothing as costumes during halloween smh.

  5. Some people just don't realize how offensive they do can be. It's sad that we have to put these messages out there, but it's definitely needed.

  6. Great post. I love Halloween costumes and only care for the ones that aren't offensive. That's why I typically dress up as a fictional movie character like Darth Vader, Harley Quinn, etc. Thinking about doing a Mad Max thing this year!

  7. Timely topic! It's sad that we have to educate adults about this in 2016. I don't remember seeing offensive costumes when I was growing up, but I guess times have changed.

  8. Excellent points. It's not funny to dress up in blackface and call it a costume.

  10. WOW I had no clue this was happening! It's outrageous.
    For me, halloween is like umm, dressing myself as a penguin and walking through the city or something fun.

  11. People do this? Wow
    I had no idea.
    Rather insensitive and backwards.
    When did a skin color become a costume?
    Thanks for sharing this!

  12. Hmmmm, I seriously find it really offensive. Maybe it wasn´t meant like this but it looks like, and that´s the problem. Or not especially "offensive" but maybe like a fun or something. I just can´t understand people who do something like this .. It´s not funny, it´s not intelligent.

    Everytime we read an article about racism we become so sad... It's impossible that now we are in 2016 and there are people so mean in this world... We are speechless!

  15. It's awful how much racism has boiled to an ugly head this year. It's something that has always been there, now it's just sitting in plain site.

  16. Wow it's pretty disturbing that people do this and actually believe there's nothing wrong with what they are doing.

  17. I will society needs prayer! This is also why I don't celebrate Halloween.

  18. Girl, I got mad and had to scroll through the pictures. It's too late for me to get an attitude. It's so shameful how we need to have posts like this since folks should have common sense...but I'll hush.

  19. The couple at the bottom who did the blackface I really think its beyond racism at this point. They are doing it because they think they can and look in 2016 people are trying to go viral so why not go all out with a modern minstrel show. Doesnt even upset me anymore its disgusting but they will get their karma for that. People who choose to be ignorant during the holidays will really get their karma.

  20. This is so sad. I'd rather stick to being a mermaid every year than offend the culture. Anyway being a mermaid is also fun!

  21. I'd have to agree, great article to remind people to be conscious of their choice of costume. The first photo painting yourself black looks highly disrespectful

  22. This is a great way to raise awareness about the issue. It is high time people realiZe how disrespectful it really is and that being consistently shallow is one day going to catch upn with them one way or the other

  23. I love how you wrote this. Very nice. It's a good thing to create awareness. Everyone should know these things. I'm hoping many people will think better about their costume. And pick something that's fun for everyone.

  24. Oh wow I've never really thought about this so I'm glad I found your blog! Halloween is meant to fun and this in no way isn't. Ree Love30

  25. I strongly agree: a race or a culture is not a costume.
    Let the fun spirit continue without hurting sentiments.

  26. I never thought about this before and I completely agree with you. Thank you for raising awareness. This is a great article. Happy Halloween.
