Here are some racist costumes that I haven’t noticed a lot of people talking about.
I actually saw an offensive Italian costume at a party very similar to this “Guido” one (which by the way is an ethnic slur) two nights ago.
Remember, believe it or not, Russians do things other than drink, and the hammer and sickle is so outdated. Germans, also, do things other than drink. And Irish, too, do things other than drink! If you buy a costume and the tag says “Gypsy,” it’s offensive. Particularly if it involves tarot cards or a crystal ball.
Honestly, it’s extremely easy not to buy or wear a racist costume for halloween. All you have to do is not try and depict any race or ethnicity other than your own, and you’re golden! That means don’t darken your skin, or wear a native american headdress, or a sombrero, or a kimono, or a Hijab.
In addition to not dressing as another race or ethnicity, try not to dress like a stereotype from a certain region, such as a southern redneck.
Basically, don’t dress like a culture, race, or ethnicity. Dress like… well… literally anything else.
So I figured out you can generate your own “Tilt the screen back” things online…

In my Effective Use of Technology in the Classroom college class I was asked to make something in Paint which is like… vaguely offensive because who even uses Paint now? I think my high school students would punch me in the face if I asked them to do something on MS Paint. What is this 1995? So anyway out of frustration I drew this…
