"Affluent White Vanity That Is Wokeism"

10/13/21 KTTH:
"A Seattle elementary school canceled Halloween activities over concerns about student equity and inclusion. Specifically, Seattle Public Schools says Black males do not celebrate and, more generally, students of color feel marginalized by the holiday. One parent, however, thinks this is an “exercise in affluent white vanity that is wokeism."

Black students don't go trick or treating?  I could have sworn African-Americans were like other Americans.  Are they abnormal, or to be PC, "holiday deviant."

Some Christians (myself among them) find Halloween distasteful because it is pagan in origin and unhealthily focused on dark images.  I am also upset how what used to be a juvenile activity has become an adult (but not terribly mature adult) past time.  

This is not to say that there cannot be some fun doing costume party. At one company, a guy did a great job with a suit that was hobo hand me down on one side and proper attire on the other.  He was shaved and properly groomed on one side and unshaven and scruffy on the other.  It was cleverly done and not from a costume store.

  1. Why not just mock them and belittle them for not participating. That ought to work. It works for Christians who are opposed to participating in Halloween.
