I don't get why people get so offended when someone is dressed up as Pocahontas or a Geisha. But yet someone of a different race always dresses up as a white princess or character from a movie. I know Halloween is long over but this topic has been really annoying me. The double standards is so real. Another thing also, I saw on a friend's facebook she wanted to get a dreamcatcher tattoo and this person got offended because it's HIS culture and she's not allowed to do that. When funny thing is she is part native and has every right to get any tattoo she desires. I bet someone is going to be offended by my post...

First there aren't that many black princesses to begin with. I think it's only one. If a little black kid wants to go as a Disney princess, they don't really have much of a variety in that department. Also I think if you are a cosplayer it's different then one Halloween night. And then sometimes if a black person cosplays as a character who is white 9 times out of ten they will be made fun of or told they can't be a certain character. Cosplaying and dressing up for Halloween are two different things (Unless you are a cosplayer and you use your talents for your Halloween costume.) And the thing you said about people doing things from different cultures I too don't see what the big deal is. If someone loves and appreciates your culture what harm are they doing. I think its a good thing that people of all races explore different culture.1
