The latest issue of a magazine run by Ohio State University issued a guide to help students avoid offensive Halloween costumes.
The student-run magazine “1870” printed a flowchart that outlines acceptable costumes.
White people should not dress up as deceased pop star Prince, but non-whites may. Whites must also avoid any kind of headwear from other cultures, but everyone else may include it in their costume.
“As long as you’re a sexy vampire or along those lines, you should be good,” one of the conclusions state.
The guide also specifically addresses Donald Trump costumes.
“Is it politically charged?” the chart asks of costume ideas that pertain to “something serious.” If yes, the magazine is interested only in whether makes fun of Donald Trump, in which case the chart advises the reader to “DO IT.”
It also asks if the costume “validates white supremacists,” “requires blackface, milk, or a swastika” or “humanizes inhumane people.”
With regard to costumes based on memes, the chart is anxious about anything derived from “4Chan or Reddit,” unless it comes from “the wholesome memes Twitter account.”
Some students have created a “hierarchy of oppression” on college campuses to compete for being the most offended said Cabot Phillips, media director at CampusReform.org.
When will this nonsense end?
