a timely reminder for Halloween  
Ohio State University's STARS group (Students Teaching Against Racism) created a series of posters reminding folks that Halloween costumes supposedly portraying a member of another culture (geisha, sheikh, gang member) are racist and hurtful. View the posters here:

Several stories in the news in the past few years have discussed people throwing "ghetto" parties on college campuses and the like. Please reconsider your choices if you have planned a Halloween costume or party like this, and please speak up when you see others doing so.
