Friends Don’t Let Friends Leave The House In Blackface, Duh

Listen, if you really have to be reminded that blackface is both culturally insensitive and just plain tacky, well, you’ve got problems. But just in case, students at Ohio University created a special campaign, helpfully reminding that blackface — even on Halloween — is in REALLY BAD TASTE. The kids from Students Teaching Against Racism (STARS) developed the “It’s a Culture, Not a Costume” series which features real pictures from a totally offensive Clemson University “gansta” party. But let’s hope you — and your friends — don’t really need the reminder. [Good Magazine]
