I know it must be tempting to be that jerk who dresses up as Trayvon Martin for Halloween. To get those awkward laughs or maybe even high-fives from other jerks you know. Or maybe you think it’d be cool to dress up as some other celebrity/ infamous/ person in jest, that happens to be another race than you. But let me save you the title of being that clueless a-hole of the Halloween party. Blackface is never an acceptable thing to do. Just Don’t. Blackface has a sick twisted history that you have no business of reenacting. Even if you think it’s not that serious, take my word for it: It is. Just don’t.
