Should there be outrage over whites dressing in black-face for Halloween?

Asked by: Sharif-Smith
  • Yes, no majority group should dress like a minority.

    Whether it be black face or Asian or native American, it is not the role of white America, which is in the majority, to dress like a member of a minority group. It is showing contempt and is demeaning. So it is reasonable that there be outrage expressed over this type of Halloween costume.

  • Still not okay

    Although it has been many years since slavery and quite a few since subjugation via Jim Crow laws, it is still in terrible taste to dress up in black face. That was part of a culture that we should not be proud of and elicits bad memories of a dark time for our country.
