Blackface on Halloween: Should You Do It?

Akoto Ofori-Atta

(The Root) — Halloween is rapidly approaching, and in light of recent events — namely these horrible, horrible Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman costumes — we thought it important to recirculate this image, courtesy of @BobbyBigWheel.

If you need help deciding whether or not you should be offensive for Halloween, use this as a reference.

This image was lost some time after publication.

(Shouts to @ladyafro for passing this along!)
