Must We Dress ‘Within Our Colour’ This Halloween?

Advertisements

Okay, I have just read a post on another page where a Mummy Blogger has urged the nation to avoid dressing up as Queen Elsa, why?

Because it promotes ‘white beauty’.

Now, this term in itself is new to me (why segregate beauty into colour at all?), but it got me thinking about all the recent posts I have seen berating people for dressing up outside of their colour (Kim Kardashian as Aaliyah to name just one: she was slated). Don’t even go there when it comes to letting little girls dress up as Moana, apparently that too is out of bounds, depending on your colour.

RACE DEBATE HALLOWEEN COSTUMES KIM KARDASHIAN AALIYAHSo, ladies, what I want to know is…

Is it racist to dress up as someone a different colour than you?

OR

Is it racist to AVOID dressing up as someone a different colour than you?

I mean, surely, we are aiming for a world where children and adults alike, see no colour boundaries at all, seeing only people, as one. As it should be!

So why then, why then, is it wrong to emulate someone you adore regardless of their skin colour? 

Surely that is completely the opposite of what we are trying to achieve?

Ladies, hit me with your thoughts on this.

Perhaps I am naive. I live in a very multi-cultural city and to me, people are people. Skin colour is exactly that, a colour of the skin!

How can we achieve a unified world if we keep making rules about what we can and can’t do when it comes to differences?

Food for thought….
