On my final day at work last week they asked me to make labels with this fancy label machine. Instead I crunched out a bunch of these!
I am super excited to put these “Racist” stickers on all the Indian Princess, Afro-Man, Amigo Man, Sexy Japanese Girl, and all other costumes sold that are blatantly racist. I am going to make a bunch more the old school way and go wild next time I am out shopping. I also need to stock up on fake blood for my yearly Halloween vigilante efforts of spaying blatantly racist people with fake blood for wearing racist outfits. It’s one of my favorite events of the year. If you actively choose to be a racist then I actively choose to react and push back.
*last year people reacted to this post with anger that I could potentially be traumatizing and triggering folks by spraying them with blood and running off. I ask that before you condemn me, ask yourself about the trauma and triggering that occurs through individual active choice in blatant racism through caricaturization of cultures and people and the way in which colonialism, imperialism, racism, hatred, dehumanization, and othering has hurt and killed people over the last 500+ years and then THEN lets talk about my impact on others. My goal is never to traumatize or trigger, my goal is to bring immediate awareness to the fuckery of racist Halloween outfits. I believe this warrants some direct action. And let me tell you, nothing ends an argument over racism like a squirt of blood on someones fake headdress or poncho and walking away. Change isn’t always pretty or fun and I’m tired of my community being the one who has to bear the weight, I refuse to have to swallow down my anger over blatant racism.
