New warnings about ‘proper’ Halloween attire

(THE COLLEGE FIX) — It’s getting orangey out there (no, not a reference to President Trump) what with the leaves falling and the abundance of pumpkins, and at your local university this means the enforcers of political correctness are out there to guard against “improper” Halloween costumes.

At Washington State University these enforcers come in the form of Social Justice Peer Educators, who are present to remind students “how culturally appropriated costumes can be disrespectful and harmful to marginalized groups.” Such appropriation is “usually done by the dominant members group […] and are taking elements from an oppressed or marginalized group,” says WSU Social Justice Peer Educator Jayda Moore.

According to The Daily Evergreen, at a meeting in which Moore and other SJPEs were in attendance, an audience member whined about once seeing a student with cornrows, and another garbed in a Fidel Castro outfit.
