When I saw this, all I could think was “Finally!” Kudos to the Ohio University students for speaking out against this. We’ve documented the tendency of people to use natural hair in silly costumes; from the “Ghetto Fab” wig to afros being the costume of choice at a bike parade. I’m not sure why there’s such a desire to racialize Halloween costumes, but here’s hoping the trend will end.
