What Not To Wear- Halloween

Halloween is a day reserved for children and grown folks to dress up as anything they want. As kids we dressed up as princesses as super heroes.  Now as adults its like the options have expanded it to include: Sexy nurse, sexy zombie, sexy cat, sexy bus driver, sexy Native American princess, etc.

Everything about these options are problematic.  Why do women’s costumes have to be hypersexual?  But worst than that why do people feel its okay to wear other’s cultures as a costume?   This week’s episode serves as caution for folks to be more careful for their costumes.

 

P.S. I wish I could prove that this video was recorded a few days before a party took place at UCLA.  Although the party’s theme was to poke fun at  Kanye West and Kim Kardashian some students took this as an opportunity to don black face and perpetuate stereotypes.
