The Coast - - THIS WEEK -

“So why is it that on Hal­loween, when, along with all the gob­lins and ghouls, vam­pires and witches, zom­bies and su­per­heroes, comes a pa­rade of of­fen­sive cos­tumes that boldly trot out ev­ery stereo­type and ram­pant mis­con­cep­tion un­der the sun? Why is it that we seem to give ev­ery­one a free pass to be as in­ap­pro­pri­ate as they want?” —Lind­say Gloade Rain­ing Bird, “Playing In­dian” in the Oc­to­ber 25, 2012 edi­tion of The Coast
