[Ed. – Parents now victimizing their children by imposing their own neuroses]
The scariest thing this Halloween for New York moms isn’t zombies or ghouls — it’s politically incorrect costumes.
An article on raceconscious.org by Sachi Feris has been making the rounds on mommy Facebook groups. Feris writes that her 5-year-old daughter declared she wanted to be Polynesian Disney character Moana, which she worried would be “cultural appropriation.”
Her daughter’s other choice: Scandinavian Queen Elsa from the Disney movie “Frozen.”
“I had some reservations regarding both costume choices … about cultural appropriation and the power/privilege carried by Whiteness, and about Whiteness and standards of beauty,” she wrote.
Feris went on to describe a series of conversations with her daughter, particularly focusing on the ethics of dressing as Moana, who as a teen sets out on a treacherous sea journey to save her family’s island from famine and destruction — and succeeds.
