  • 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.
