I’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.

Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful.

Sugar skull represents the deceased, in a joyful manner. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico. 

It is not offensive to turn this into a costume or an accessory because it already is, so if you want to dress up like sugar skulls on Halloween, do so, but atleast know it’s value.

Be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.

This post is about that eradicating guilt trip and blaming, and turn it into self awareness

monthly reminder to unfollow me if you think white people can experience racism

Everyone please unfollow this retarded douchebag

did you really try to prove your point by using an ableist slur yea ok ….

lol drop a white, fratty douche bag in a predominantly black neighborhood and tell me he won’t experience racism

he won’t experience racism
just a well deserved ass whoopin

As a white boy who worked in Crenshaw, I can say I did not experience an ass whoopin. The only way in which I was treated differently due to my race was the expectation that I had more money, which given my wages at the time was likely inaccurate. It seems a little more racist to stereotype african americans as violent thugs, and imply that because a neighborhood is primarily black it is unsafe.
