SPECIAL: Campus Reform's guide to a politically correct Halloween

  • Use to navigate the murky waters of what is and is not politically correct
  • Cowboys are acceptable, Indians are not.
  • Never go full "White Trash"

Earlier this week, Campus Reform's Katherine Timpf reported on two public university incidents in which officials warned students against donning potentially offensive Halloween costumes.

The University of Colorado posted a website notification discouraging diversity of costumes due to the potential of “inaccurate and hurtful portrayals of other peoples' cultures in the CU community.”

"Cowboys, for instance — totally fine. Indians — not totally fine,” - University of Minnesota undergraduate student body president Mike Schmit   

Earlier this month, officials at the University of Minnesota issued a letter warning against distasteful Halloween costumes. 

Campus Reform recognizes how confusing these suggestions can be. Offensive content is very subjective.

So we decided to issue a guide for students to navigate the murky waters of what is and is not politically correct this Halloween.
