University of Colorado Boulder Political Correctness … Tells Students Not to Wear Offensive Costumes including Cowboys, Indians or White Trash for Halloween
Good grief, are you kidding me … exactly how is it offensive to dress up like a cowboy or Indian?
The University of Colorado at Boulder is warning students not to dress up in Halloween costumes that are “offensive” and might make some people feel uncomfortable. UNREAL. The PC nonsense has now provided a war on Halloween. Offensive? What is offensive is the narrow-mindedness of the liberal hierarchy at CU and the lack of any sense of humor. You can’t have party themes or dress up like cowboys, Indians, white trash, ghetto or hillbillies. Nor themes of crime or sex work. Good grief! What ever happened to people just having fun and be able to laugh? Let’s face it, there is always some one that will be offended by something. Especially in this day and age of “weeniness.” Just curious, how do you know you are not offending witches, goblins, ghosts, vampires and other ghouls by the costumes you wear, HMM?
I am guessing if they dress up like Barack Obama in an unflattering way that it will be grounds for dismissal.
Costumes you will not see at CU this Halloween for a multitude of reasons …
Nor This …
University students in America have been told not to wear “offensive” halloween costumes including cowboys, indians and anything involving a sombrero.
Students at the University of Colorado Boulder have also been told to avoid “white trash” costumes and anything that portrays a particular culture as “over-sexualised”- which the university says includes dressing up as a geisha or a “squaw” (indigenous woman).
They are also asked not to host parties with offensive themes including those with “ghetto” or “hillbilly” themes or those associated with “crime or sex work.”
In the letter sent by a university official students are asked to consider the impact that their costumes could have.
Christina Gonzales, the dean of students, wrote: “Making the choice to dress up as someone from another culture, either with the intention of being humorous or without the intention of being disrespectful, can lead to inaccurate and hurtful portrayals of other people’s cultures.
I wonder if the University of Colorado officials think its ok for students to dress up like Conservatives and have anti-Tea Party themes?
BTW, get a life and a sense of humor.
