every day is scary enough when the police might shoot you just for your skin colour

What makes you think they don't obviously there are those who do not celebrate halloween, ethnicity is irrelevant here.

I know of a few white people who choose to not celebrate halloween, to say its just ethnic minorities is a bit ignorant, its just personal opinion irrespective of the colour of their skin

Any statistics or figures? Or is this another baseless argument used to stir more racial hatred in the comments. Also Inb4 "None of my non-white friends celebrate it".

Your racism is showing.

They have rival gangs of the same colour to worry about more.

Have you even got an example of one person shot by the police because of their skin colour?

Why is this
Because there's no need to celebrate it and also different culture. I had never heard of halloween until after 4yrs of being in England, and it was kind of a shock. The idea of dressing up, going around strangers house asking for candies seemed weird and rude to me, until I learned what the event was.

What shocked me the most was the idea of Santa Claus (the fact that an old man suddenly finds a way inside your house when everyone is asleep really terrified me).

Well I mean, no police officer is going to say "you're black so I'm shooting you"
But the number of unarmedblack people being shot is much higher than that of white people
Clearly, it's terrible that anyone at all is being shot while unarmed, but that does show racism

You are on a .co.uk site, not a .com one.
