Attention, sexy xenophobes!
In an effort to prevent widespread small mindedness this Halloween, Hampshire College — the rumored "Shaggy" of the Five Schools — has developed an anti-racist costume checklist aimed at making aware the culturally misguided, blindly intolerant, shamefully ignorant or just plain careless.
Before you wreck your respectable self, check your deplorable self against the criteria below. Look in the mirror and ask a few of these questions, lest you spend the night bounding your candy-coated bigotry door-to-door.
Pre-packaged costume offenders are easy to spot, with words like, "traditional," "ethnic," "colonial," "cultural," "authentic" and "tribal" found in the description.
