VIDEO: Students outraged by cultural appropriation...except for 'hillbilly,' nun costumes

  • Syracuse Campus Correspondent Justine Brooke Murray asked students about specific Halloween costumes and whether they were offensive.
  • Many students agreed costumes representing “cultures” or “religion” were offensive.
  • However, students did not think costumes depicting white people and nuns were as offensive.

With a recent poll finding that a majority of college students want punishment for “highly offensive” costumes, New York Campus Correspondent Justine Brooke Murray spoke to students at Syracuse University to find out where they came down on the issue and what types of costumes they find "offensive."

Murray showed students pictures of people in several different types of Halloween costumes, including a Native American, a woman in a Japanese kimono, a man in a sombrero and a poncho, a “hillbilly,” a rabbi, a nun, and a man dressed in traditional Saudi Arabian garb. Murray also asked students to compare the offensiveness costumes, and whether or not they agreed with the poll.
