Is it wrong to dress as a racial stereotype for Halloween?

  • I believe it's wrong to dress as a racial stereotype for Halloween.

    Although I have to say that I'm not too sure what exactly you mean by that. If you mean dressing in a specific way to discriminate the said race, then it should be considered wrong. However, if you are dressing in a traditional cultural costume, or a costume of that race but does not offend any members of that race in any way, then it should be okay.

  • Wrong to dress as a racial stereotype for Halloween

    It is wrong in many ways to dress as a racial stereotype for Halloween or whatever occasion it may be. We have enough problems in the Unites States that is related to racism and discrimination, so we need to put an end to any other stereotypes that may enforce racism, even if it is for Halloween.

  • Yes, it is wrong to dress as a racial stereotype for Halloween.

    Dressing as racial stereotypes draws unneeded attention to the stereotype. Also, many of those affected by the stereotype might find the stereotype to be offensive and, thus, be upset by seeing the stereotype personified. There is no good to be gained by dressing as a racial stereotype for Halloween, and it is rude, offensive, and unnecessary.

  • No, it is not

    I don't believe that dressing up as a racial stereotype is a bad thing, with the exception of black face. I don't think that it would be bad, this would be because technically Jasmine is a racial stereotype of the indian culture and many would also say that wearing a sombrero would be a stereotype. If your offended by these things, you would have some serious problems because being offended happens, I don't believe that just because a few people are offended by what someone wears, that person should have to stop and adapt to those 'offended one's' ways.
