As KTTH’s Jason Rantz reported last week, an elementary school in Seattle (and likely many more) canceled the school’s Pumpkin Parade and all other Halloween celebrations, instead offering “thematic units of study about the fall.” The move had been recommended by the school’s Racial Equity Team, which had determined that Halloween celebrations marginalized black males especially.

Now writer Jesse Singal is saying that he’s received multiple examples of schools canceling Halloween activities in the name of inclusivity.

“However, we have several school community members who do not celebrate Halloween, or are upset by the costumes, or for whom purchasing a costume is a hardship. As a school that believes deeply in making sure everyone is welcome and included, we will no longer be inviting Halloween costumes into school.”

Yep. In order to be inclusive, we’re going to cancel everything where someone might feel excluded.
