This is one of our favorite Halloween posts ever. We posted it last year when students from the University of Ohio launched a campaign against costumes that stereotype cultures. It didn't seem to sit well with Americans, specifically the part of America that's on the internet. It was deemed 'Butthurt Halloween'.

    One of my friends and I actually got in a heated debate about this right before Halloween. I think 99% of these costumes are not racist, and I can’t believe we’ve gotten to the point that we have to complain about Halloween costumes as a form of racism. It’s ridiculous.

    Again, there's no such thing as "University of Ohio". It's OHIO University. Since you only know sports, Ohio University is the home of the Ohio Bobcats.

  • the credible hulk

    this was most excellent! And yeah, if you don't like the stereo-type of your culture, fix it! At home.

    If educated people can get behind this, why cant the Chive?
    I understand the premise of the humor in this post, but I see Chivers standing behind many causes… why choose one to ridicule?

    What about KKK or Nazi costumes ?????

  • Alan

    Mind telling us what IS okay?

    Pregnant nun (offensive to Catholics), cowboy / sexy cowgirl (offensive to agriculture workers), Obama (offensive to Democrats), Romney (offensive to Republicans), nerdy guy (offensive to IT workers), adult baby (offensive to people with bladder-control problems), soldier (offensive to active-duty personnel), leprechaun (offensive to Irish), cross-dressing (offensive to transsexuals), old man/lady (offensive to the elderly) etc etc etc.

    This is America, and I'm offended that you're offended.

    Way to make light of people's legitimate complaints about stereotyping. Just proving once agian The Chive is Racist and Mysogynist. Enjoy your money now, cause karma is a bitch.

    If you actually had any friends of color none of this would be funny. Don't be an ass for the sake of a joke. It may not be important to you but it means a lot to billions of people.
