To me, this story is ridiculous. People dress up for Halloween because its fun, not to be racist. I dont think that she was being racist at all because a lot of people idolize Lil’ Wayne for his success and fame. This is just a costume.

  1. I know we talked about the “illegal alien” Halloween costume in class, but I think individuals painting their faces darker or lighter for a costume is acceptable. It’s Hallooween for pete’s sake! People are dressing up to dress up, not to offend anyone. This doesn’t mean that the cheerleader is racist…I wouldn’t think she would want to dress up as Lil Wayne if she was racist in the first place.
