White People, Why Do You Insist On Wearing These Racist Halloween Costumes?

White People, Why Do You Insist On Wearing These Racist Halloween Costumes?

Halloween has transitioned from its original purpose to honor the remembrance of the dead, to becoming a festive holiday where people dress up in costumes, especially children, and go trick-or-treating to solicit candy. Typical Halloween activities include attending costume parties, carving pumpkins, visiting haunted houses, and watching horror flicks.

Halloween, for the most part, is an exciting holiday because it allows people to really express their creativity and “artistic” abilities. However, there’s always that bunch of people that take the tradition too far, and end up offending others. Instead of dressing up as any of Disney’s fictional characters, the historical witch, sexy angel, or even a spooky demon, these people choose to “spook” others with racial stereotypes.

The following are extremely racist Halloween costumes that white people (or anyone else for that matter) should never consider wearing if they don’t want to be viewed as a racist:

The (Infamous) Black Face

Here’s some advice. If you have to put on makeup to make yourself appear dark-skinned or black, just walk away from the idea. It’s the 21st century and I’m sure it’s clear by now that black face only perpetrates the 19th century’s minstrel show where whites would dress up in a black face to act out extremely racist stereotypes about black people.

Dressing up in any form of black face is not funny, definitely unoriginal, and racist.

Also, no matter how comical white people attempt to make Serena Williams look, they never seem to succeed. Looking at the idiot dressed up like her in the photo makes me adore Serena even more. Even white men aim to look like her. Unfortunately they fail horribly every time.

The (Sexy) Indian

Let me start off by saying that every design, pattern, and accent that Natives embellish their garments with represent something sacred to them. They don’t design their clothing with feathers, beads, fake animal teeth and skin, etc., for the sake of style or entertainment to others.

Modern Native Americans don’t appear to dress this way. This superficial representation of them highlights their past tribal traditions and definitely not their present.

The Arab

We all know that to be a “real” Arab, you must wear a white or black robe with a headscarf, or a turban. And of course you aren’t legitimate if you don’t have a sword in hand or one at least secured to your side.

THIS IS BULLSH*T!

There are several variations of Arabic attire, varying by region. This portrayal of attire is stereotypical and doesn’t serve any justice in exemplifying the multitude of different and unique styles representing Arabic fashion.

The Mexican

If I see one more white person dressed in a sombrero to represent a Mexican, I’m going to scream. Yes the sombrero is commonly worn by Mexicans, but there is so much more to their cultural attire than a hat! And I’m not even going to speak on those mundane ponchos that the women are wearing.

Furthermore, what is really disturbing about this photo is that these Caucasian, very juvenile girls convinced themselves that sporting a sign reading, “Green Card,” made their uninspired costume even more legitimate. Dressing as themselves would have sufficed as perfect costumes–racist bimbos.

The Asian

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAracist_halloween_costume_10

First, let me say that these two idiots look extremely inane as they attempt to emulate East Asians performing the stereotypical Chinese greeting. This cartoonish characterization of East Asians isn’t just disrespectful, but also racist.

To degrade, offend, and demean an entire diverse group of people for entertainment is juvenile and only exposes the ignorance of the individual(s) perpetrating the racism. East Asians–Chinese, Japanese, and Korean descent–are known to typically have eyes that are often mono-lidded, with an epicanthal fold.

There is a wealth more to East Asians than their uniquely beautiful, elongated, and narrow eyes. To use their natural features as a costume idea is clichéd, overdone and RACIST!

The Muslim (Terrorist)

I think many will agree that there isn’t anything comical about terrorism. The multitude of lives that have been loss as a result of suicide bombings is alarming and devastating, to say the least. Furthermore, the destruction caused by a suicide bombing can be a never ending cycle of physical and mental rehabilitation for the survivors and economy.

Therefore, wearing a costume that mocks or imitates a “Muslim” suicide bomber, especially realizing the stereotypes and fears that have plagued the Muslim culture as a result, is very poor in taste. The idea of suicide bombing shouldn’t be taken lightly and especially shouldn’t be used as an idea for a Halloween costume.

Overall white people, how about this Halloween you respect people’s race and culture and understand that they aren’t your mascots? Using your satirical costume to emulate an entire race of people or culture suggests that you have minimized their entire being into your single, simple-minded idea. There isn’t anything funny or creative about offending or demeaning people for entertainment. Dressing up in a racist costume only implies that you possess a low opinion of that race.

Robin Nicollette, has written her latest criminal masterpiece that tells the story of sexy serial killers Alexis Webb and her lesbian lover, Natalie Miller.

Alexis, a social worker overseeing cases of abused children, and Natalie, a call girl, are on a mission in the small town of Heber Springs, Arkansas–serving “justice” for girls and boys that the system failed to—by killing their pedophile prey, one by one in their infamous slaughterhouse.

What makes the duo’s endeavors so chilling is that once they feel that justice has been served, they collect a very special souvenir from each case—displaying them as badges of work well done.

Things are going very well until a deranged client interferes with their efforts, threatening to expose the principles which they deeply believe in.

Will the world recognize and endorse their lethal form of justice or will the duo be misunderstood and condemned to the same sacrifice that they rendered to their “prey?”

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad

How to Avoid High Child Support Payments and Not Be A Deadbeat Dad Image

Child support, while good in concept and theory, is a flawed system filled with a wealth of biases and unfair child support laws that many times aren’t reasonable for the non-custodial parent to honor. Child support enforcement has gotten more strenuous over the years, and doesn’t put forth much consideration of the obligations that non-custodial parents may have to support themselves.

While there are many parents who choose not to financially support their children, there are many who do. Nevertheless, the child support courts and the Office of Child Support Enforcement (CSE), have geared unfair child support laws to battle against deadbeat parents. Consequently, all non-custodial parents, even those who are actively involved in their children’s lives—are faced with a downward spiral of actions taken against them, making it almost impossible to recover from. Some of these atrocities include:

• Warrant(s) issued for arrest and imprisonment
• License(s) suspended and or passport revoked
• Income taxes offset
• Garnished paychecks
• Difficulty finding employment

Therefore this “child support for dummies” guide is intended to give parents with unfair and unreasonable child support payments information to determine fair monetary payments and how to set up a system that will force the state to honor those agreements. The goal is to not only protect the interests of children, but to also prevent destruction of the non-custodial parent’s assets, capital, and livelihood.
