It's an elementary school's Halloween parade in Seattle, why should I care about this at all whatsoever
From the article it seems like a random kid just requested to not be part of the parade and then the article/staff made it into a race issue. Your post title is misleading

exactly - I changed the title just now (before I even saw your post).
also, 0-word post with just a link? what the fuck is this, reddit?

@WiiMiiSwitch be careful with the clickbaity titles - it's quite obvious you're trying to stir up trouble.
Your behavior in this forum will be watched closely.

This problem of Halloween would be easily solved by Americans simply not celebrating a festival that has nothing to do with them and let us Scots celebrate Samhain the way it should be without all the commercialised bullshit that American has attached to it. :lol:
America has this "holiday" thanks to the Scots that migrated here. I'm very much a product of that history, and it's my favorite holiday, commercialised or otherwise. So, no, I'll celebrate regardless of what the school districts decide to do.

More fuel for the culture war, I wish the original fact didn't happened, that the news wasn't reported and that OP didn't post repost it to make a point for its side of this dull conflict.

Because your focus is entirely too much on culture war (anti-PC) bullshit rather than anything that has a real, meaningful impact on peoples' lives.

If you want an example of a story about elementary children that's actually newsworthy, here ya go: Tennessee judge has been jailing kids using made-up criminal charges.
If you thought it was so useless why reply?
I'm sorry but I have to respectfully disagree
I think if people trying to solve an already solved problem will just make things worse

I seriously hope you aren't suggesting that racism is "solved" in a country where people can still be seen flying confederate and swastika flags even in the northernmost states, because that would be patently ridiculous. Unfortunately I'm also not sure how else that statement could be interpreted.

I'm not fully suggesting racism is solved
There are still KKK marches and white supremacy in certain places but I mean, let's be honest, how many times have you met someone that is fully racist, if your comfortable doing so please list the state

Obviously you know the answer to that if you're already moving the goalposts to whatever the hell "fully racist" is supposed to mean lol. I've been all over the US, and some of the most openly racist parts of it (aside from the rural South) are Eastern (rural) Oregon and pretty much anywhere in the New England region. And yes, I've met racists where I live (Colorado) as well.

In general, racists try to avoid revealing their racism to anybody who isn't on the same page, but you might (or might not) be surprised how many immediately assume I'm on their side just because I'm white.

I guess I would be surprised but I would have to see it to believe it. I don't want to stay the state I live in for privacy based reasons but I can tell you, there's almost no racists. Yeah I've met racists and people have been racist to me but it's quickly dying out
Kids make seem like racism is a crime so kids should grow up without any racism
Also "fully racist" means actually racist. For example, actually discriminates without being satirical. It just feels like people make the world seem so racist when it really isn't that racist
But some people still are racist.
I mean I found a website called White Pride Radio
But I just feel we keep running over and over again (Yes a Nathan Sykes reference, which is also my pfp) in a loop.
I feel if we abandon the entire race concept and open up as people instead I feel racism will be dead
