check out this halloween costume that people are protesting.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33402451/ns/us_news-race_and_ethnicity/?gt1=43001

I am 100% liberal, but freedom of speech should be for everyone!!!

what a great example of people getting worked up over nothing. I mean first off, how does wanting people to migrate to the US legally make you a racist? Im not racist at all, but anyone who wants to live in this country should make an effort to follow the correct steps to be a part of our society. . . Like paying taxes!!! and im damn sure sick of my taxes going to pay for health care for immigrants when i myself dont have any. I dont care what color you are, but why should they be rewarded for nothing when me, a us citizen, born and raized, cant afford to even go to the doctor???

so yes, i support this costume!!!
who's with me?
Electro Metal???

That doesn't look like a somalian at all.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Tbh, your taxes are probably going towards road upkeep in the opposite end of the country.

Don't get on your high horse because you've been paying taxes for the past 3 months.

I think the fact that the alien is being misrepresented as being illegal is a better reason to take it off the market.

political correctness rules! Ironically, these people want us to lead GREY lives.

So you think aliens who come to Earth will decide to apply for a visa to enter the US?

It's not funny or clever though.

A guy at my school once dressed up as blackmail for Hallowe'en. He used a bin bag and some envelopes.

That's just hilarious.

On a serious note, people should be allowed to wear the costume because it shouldn't offend people who came to the country legally, so it's not even racist.

If you read the article and/or look at the picture then you will notice that the Alien has a 'Green Card' so is not actually illegal.


And thankyou SlipknotRule93, I don't like to have people expect too much of me.

Lol? I don't see how it could possibly be racist. Except against maybe aliens, but I haven't seen anyone that looks like that walking around yet.


I agree, I've seen those costumes with a poncho, sombrero, and big mustache all over the place and those are "more racist" than the alien one.
#25
Racist? No. Xenophobic? Mildly. Funny or clever? No. Worth the whole discussion? Probably not. Still, I think both sides presented in the article are off the mark. The offended party is being oversensitive, and the person saying that people should buy the costumes in protest is being a bit of a dick. I've personally been the butt of several anti-Semitic jokes, and I only get pissed depending on the intent of the person making the joke. That said, I'm not speaking for every minority. Personally, I think it's not in the best taste, but it's also not bad enough to constitute all of the attention.

look im mexican.

my mom and dad are mexican, born in mexico, there illegal but are residents.

they laughed, i laughed, **** i wanted to buy one.

this is stupid that they banned the costume, definately.

what the **** is happening to this country either way if it was hateful, who gives a f**** people got the right to say whatever it is they want. thats why my parents crossed the border for all the beutiful freedoms of this country, wich i am proud of being a part of.

What the hell are people worked up about? If anything, it's aliens (as in space) that should complain of racism here. It's just a clever (disguise. lord I wanted to say that!) costume, not any worse than your standard cheesy slogan shirt, if not better.

it's a political joke. if the costume was Barack obama (in black face) then there might be a limit to it but it's just an Alien in a prision outfit. in my opinion it is a joke at all those Americans who hate Immigrants

That would be speciesm, my good chap.

Touché. And they shouldn't be called Aliens, but rather "Native Space-dwellers" too, right?
#35
lol, america is racism-phobic, in the uk a white guy could wear an outfit that had black face paint, an afro, gun, watermelon, chicken bucket, bass guitar and a pimp hat if he wanted and everyone would laugh..... unless he was famous, government or royal..... lol Prince harry full on wore a nazi uniform once and also refered to his indian friend in the army as a @~*&
But if its average joe then who cares....

It should be banned solely so that I don't have to listen to over privileged douchebags talk about immigration. See: TS.

Or perhaps "xeno-biological intelligences". Or maybe "our new alien overlords".

Racism [N]:a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

I do not see a single idea towards a race at all, if anything its an alien. Alien/=/ race, an alien would be a species, therefore not racist...people are retarded
