    You are on a .co.uk site, not a .com one.
    Not every .com site is American.

    Maybe the non-religious ones would be up for it if the whites didn't make costumes out of someone's culture
    If you're going to take that route, wouldn't they be borrowing Celtic culture?

    I'm referring to far east Asian, Mexican, and Native American culture as well as blackface. People who are actually oppressed yfm
    Surely the fact that you regard Celtic culture as expendable in comparison to other cultures is a symbol of inequality. Why does it matter less than other cultures? I've heard many people say to respect Native American culture but I've never heard anyone say - "Make sure you know Halloween's background before celebrating it."

    I hate hallowen and I don't celebrate it. I don't care if you're offended by people celebrating your occasion or whatever but I'm not just gonna stay mute when someone makes a costume out of the same culture and heritage I'm mocked for
    Then why should anyone else care when someone makes a costume out of your culture?

    Why is this
    Because the last time when they wore masks, they got arrested and jailed.

    Did I say they should care? No. But they should at least have the decency to understand they have no right to partake in a culture that isn't theirs. I don't care about your haggis because stereotypes aren't oppressing you, but when I get called an immigrant for wearing traditional clothes whilst the next cracker gets labeled alternative for the same reason, that is oppression.
    "They have no right to partake in a culture that isn't theirs" - And this shouldn't apply to Halloween?

    "haggis" - Haggis is recognised as a part of Scottish culture not Celtic culture. Regardless, you don't think that Scottish people are ever mocked for their traditions? Wearing kilts or eating haggis? How is this different to your situation?

    "the next cracker" - It's funny when the idiots harping on about cultural appropriation are the biggest racists themselves.

    Cultural appropriation is a silly idea so I don't advocate any of the views I've stated. But if you're going to talk about I think it's pretty telling that you don't care if it's hurting cultures traditionally celebrated by white people.

    Why is this
    The ****, because a few people you knew that are from an ethnic minority background didn't celebrate Halloween, no every ethnic minority doesn't, such a white boy thing to post

    Because we aren't as naturally evil. Whites have a history of evilness so Halloween is a big celebration to them.

    I know it might be little shocking, but not everywhere is as f*cked up as freedom-land.
