Now Playing Tracks

Tomorrow is my first official day teaching, I wish I could say in my own room but I’m on a cart, and I’m nervous as hell and excited. It’s been kind of a weird process of me getting hired so I haven’t been extremely well-prepared but I hope I can do the best with what I have

I’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.

Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful.

Sugar skull represents the deceased, in a joyful manner. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico. 

It is not offensive to turn this into a costume or an accessory because it already is, so if you want to dress up like sugar skulls on Halloween, do so, but atleast know it’s value.

Be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.
