GAINESVILLE, FL -- Sorry kids. Dressing up for Halloween isn't just about being cute or scary. People can get so creative that their costumes come off extremely offensive.
That's why the University of Florida is offering costume counseling sessions. In a blog post, the school explains how some costumes reinforce "stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religion." They're also offering counseling for students who are offended by such costumes.
But, get this.
Last week, University of Wisconsin- La Crosse reportedly hosted a campus event educating students on how not to dress like a racist for Halloween.
Guess both of the schools are trying to avoid a whole lot of tricks and treats on their campuses.
The scariest part of all this? People still need to be schooled on rules of racism.
