Meme Watch: ‘We’re A Culture, Not A Costume’ Parody Posters Will Not Be Denied This Halloween

By / 10.25.11

I enjoy a good laugh as much as probably more than the next guy, so that occasionally often means I find myself laughing at something and then noting to myself I’m probably going to hell for it. As you may have guessed, that is the case here.
Earlier this week an Ohio University student organization “Students Teaching Against Racism” shared on Tumblr their poster campaign to help make people more conscientious of their Halloween costume choices (three examples below). These posters were widely applauded on Tumblr and beyond, but with great internet recognition comes great meme possibility and the posters have spawned a handful of different variations that do a Bad Advice Cat number on me. As far as I’m concerned the memes aren’t mean spirited, just comedy spirited, or at least that’s how I’m enjoying them.
