When you’re a white person picking out a costume for Halloween, there’s one kind of costume that’s never acceptable. That’s when your costume is to dress up as… her.
A candidate in the race for Louisiana House of Representatives from Bossier City apparently did not get the memo, because here he is in his Halloween costume:
Uhm, yeah. Robbie Gatti. Dude. Look. That’s racist as fuck, okay? I mean, c’mon. Quit whining about how we’re trying to dig up “negative mud”. This isn’t a “witch hunt”. This is an intervention. That shit’s embarrassing to anybody from Louisiana. Even to people like me from Louisiana, the kind of dude who says “fuck Louisiana” on a regular basis. I mean, I grew up under the runway there at Barksdale AFB. This is just fucking embarrassing. I mean, sure, you’ve always said you’re against Muslims and, implicitly, other unseemly mud people. But you don’t have to get embarrassing about it, dude!
But: Bossier City, Louisiana. Probably just got himself 4,000 more votes and a win. Bossier is where the racist white people from Shreveport, on the other side of the Red River, fled in order to get away from integrated schools back in the 1970’s. This fine outstanding event was sponsored by a Baptist Church. Apparently none of the fine people at that Baptist Church remarked to this dude, “dude. You know, that costume is racist as fuck.” Because Bossier. Duh.
Things be changing in a lot of places. North Louisiana ain’t one of them.
– Badtux the “Dude, that’s racist!” Penguin
