There Are Other Orange People Than Donald Trump?

Because those are the only “people of color” I can see being “marginalized” by a “Pumpkin Parade”.

Seattle School Cancels ‘Pumpkin Parade’ For Marginalizing ‘People Of Color’ | The Daily Wire

A Halloween themed parade at a school in Seattle has been canceled with school administrators arguing that it “marginalizes people of color.”

Following five years of deliberation about the future of the school’s annual pumpkin parade, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School has decided to nix the holiday tradition this year on the advice of the school’s Racial Equity Team.

The Pumpkin Parade had traditionally featured a procession of elementary students dressed in Halloween costumes.

“Historically, the Pumpkin Parade marginalizes students of color who do not celebrate the holiday,” a spokesperson told Jason Rantz, a Seattle-based conservative radio host. “Specifically, these students have requested to be isolated on campus while the event took place.”

Oh. it’s because some people of color don’t celebrate Halloween.


There are lots of people who don’t celebrate Halloween. I doubt that is limited to just people of color. In fact, I would venture to guess that the number of Caucasians in the U.S. who don’t celebrate Halloween far outnumbers the number of people of color who don’t.

I’d guess by at least an order of magnitude.

Anyway. Fine. You don’t want to celebrate Halloween to be inclusive. I can handle that. Don’t claim it’s racist though. That’s just stupid.
