Halloween: US universities warn students against culturally insensitive costumes

Halloween: US universities warn students against culturally insensitive costumes | 31 Oct 2017 | Universities are urging students in search of an attention-grabbing costume this Halloween to pass on sombreros, Native American headdresses and blackface. Those are some of the costumes grabbing the attention of university administrators who are increasingly concerned that certain costumes are becoming flashpoints in campus debates over race and culture. While not outright prohibiting any costume, administrators are using letters, campus forums and advertising campaigns to encourage students to pick outfits that don't offend classmates of colour..."The cultural temperature on this has gotten so high that nothing is appropriate anymore. We are getting to the point where prohibition is the rule," said [CLG Founder] Michael Rectenwald, a professor of Global Liberal Studies at New York University, who has criticised Halloween costume policies.
