We’re A Culture, Not A Costume

Students Teaching Against Racism, a student organization at Ohio University, has released these brilliant posters just in time for Halloween, the yearly occasion when hidden prejudices surface in the form of inappropriate, ignorant and offensive costumes.  Here’s a blogger with more information and the rest of the posters.

One thought on “We’re A Culture, Not A Costume”

  1. I had a facebook “conversation” about this and was shocked that I was the only voice saying that these posters had a great point. I finally got tired of the “You’re being too sensitive” comments and backed out. I just wish that people would balance their FREEDOM to do something with COMPASSION for others. I wish people would lovingly refrain from actions that they know will hurt others instead of insisting on their “rights” to do what they please.
