As cries of cultural appropriation strike colleges over Halloween costumes, Campus Reform’s Addison Smith interviewed college students dressed as George Washington to see if this accusation was a real concern among students.
You might be surprised at their answers. Then again, maybe not.
Aren’t these the same kids who just a few years ago dressed up as aliens and princesses to have some fun and eat candy? When did Halloween suddenly become so serious?
And so liberal.
Students overwhelmingly insisted on being “culturally sensitive” and “politically correct.”
“Yeah, definitely. I believe that cultural appropriation is a thing, so don’t do it,” one student said.
Another insisted that Halloween costumes are a form of “freedom of speech.”
“People’s culture is not a costume,” another added.
Smith then posed to students the idea that anyone can pick something offensive about any costume.
Dress like Scooby Doo? PETA might not like it. Dress as a nurse. Where’s your mask? Dress like a police officer? Somebody might want to defund your candy.
The cancel culture police simply don’t have a sense of humor. One sad side (among man) of wokism is that nothing can simply be fun or enjoyed without making it political.
And now college students can’t see someone dressed as George Washington without a heated argument.
