    I think overall the lesson of those photos is a good one… they don’t want a mockery made of their culture… I can definitely see how those costumes would make people feel uncomfortable and outcasted. Something sort of unrelated though… I feel like the more people talk about race the more divided we all actually become.. I think back to when I was a kid, in kindergarten or whenever, we didn’t even realize someone was a different race… I don’t think any of us even thought that way… I can’t remember anyone being made fun of for being different whether it was because of race or how they dressed or spoke or acted… And I see the same thing with young kids in my neighborhood. I don’t see anyone being outcasted for being fat or wearing glasses or being black or hispanic… everyone just plays together. I feel like as we get older and are taught to not be racist or stereotypical, rude, judgmental, etc… we are actually being taught to notice the differences in each other.
