    Halloween Horror keeping moms up at night

    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.

    The little ones must stay in their lanes. When playing cowboys and Indians remember that Asian children are relegated to running track for the railway and black children are domestic servants.

    On a serious note, it must suck to live your life like that, always second-guessing and being wrapped around your own axle in an attempt to be completely PC. How stressful.
