You heard me. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/10401584/Offensive-Halloween-costumes-banned-by-US-university.html)

I guess we'll reaname the Cowboys, Vikings and Raiders eventually after all.

I think the school just ruled out every Halloween costume ever.

They shouldn't be allowed to wear those costumes because THEY AREN'T SCARY!!! :mad: That's probably what's offensive.

Some people don't think it's funny to dress up as 'white trash'
1 day ago

Huron Park Elementary in Roseville, Mich., had a costume night Thursday — and one woman showed up dressed as "white trash." That meant she painted her (and her daughter's face) white, and the duo wore white trash bags with the words "white trash" across them. Turns out, people weren't thrilled.

"Rosevill is known for 'white trash' and you just don't do that at a kids function," Megan Manchenko, a shocked parent, told My Fox Detroit. "You can't have weapons, you can't have blood, you can't have gory stuff. But racial slurs? Go right ahead." The school notes that certain costumes are banned at school-sanctioned events, and the principal did confront the unnamed mother about the costume. But officials added that it's hard to make parents abide by the same rules as students.

Per a radio host I was listening to yesterday morning: "so now white people dressing up as white people are offensive to white people" (https://www.google.com/search?q=white+trash+costume+school&client=firefox-a&hs=AGs&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=0Z9uUpXTFoKCyAG3_YHIDQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1920&bih=1037#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=V_qkU0t1755WQM%3A%3BWiMEj6Y70MYpUM%3Bhttp%25 3A%252F%252Fwww.liberalamerica.org%252Fwp-content%252Fthemes%252Fstylebook%252Ftimthumb.php% 253Fsrc%253Dhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.liberalam erica.org%25252Fwp-content%25252Fuploads%25252F2013%25252F10%25252Fwh ite-trash-halloween.jpg%2526q%253D90%2526w%253D795%2526h%253 D470%2526zc%253D1%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.liberal america.org%252Ftag%252Fwhite-trash-costume%252F%3B795%3B470)

Well, at the least they should be boo-ed for not much effort...says the woman who TWICE glued hundreds of feathers to a costume. :D

Not to mention many fake axe wounds and bullet holes!

at an adults-only party, I think I'd be OK with white trash costume

also, Maik is right about the not scary being the greater offense

If a fake axe wound is too much effort, you could've just gone for a proper axe wound.
