ROSEVILLE, Mich. (WJBK) - A mother-daughter costume at Huron Park Elementary's 'Trunk or Treat' Thursday night caused some backlash from other parents. The two wore a black sweatshirt, white trash bags and labels reading 'White Trash.'

"I was a little appalled. To me, how can you dress yourself and your child in a white trash outfit?" asks Roseville parent Nicole Ekmeian.

Just imagine if she had used black trash bags and marked them as such.

Everybody and his brother are p*ssing themselves over Halloween costumes this year, all the while turning a blind eye to the activities of the ghouls in Washington.

Ironic.

One of them should have had a fishing pole with a $1000 bill on the hook, dragging it in front of the other.

This criticism of everything is seriously out of hand. I think it's funny, and took it as humor directed at themselves for wearing white trash bags instead of Halloween costumes.

The US used to be a great nation. Part of being a great nation was our freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Now, the PC police are even infiltrating Halloween costumes? c'mon

I hope they spent nothing on those costumes, which is what they look like to me

There’s always been criticism, probably of everything and then some. The difference now is that it’s all turned into a “news story” and treated as if it’s actually important. Gawd, I’m so sick of it!!!

I find the trivial things that make news amazing, the same media that will ignore anything that hurts leftists. A stabbing spree that kills 5, where is the national media? If it was a gun they’d be there while the bodies were still warm

All of it — ALL of it — local, national, whatever — is nothing but propaganda and/or infotainment. Getting my news on FR, at least I can choose and be informed about the biases coming across in the reporting. It’s simply astonishing to me that so many people still think the old 6 or 7 o’clock newscast they half-listen to during dinner is somehow “objective” and keeping them “informed.”

I grew up one town over from Roseville. Those weren’t costumes.

Both wearing black hoodies. Now, where have I seen that before? Someone in the news wearing a black hoodie? What kind of statement would they be making with black hoodies and white trash costumes?

Oh no. I worked at a trunk or treat thing yestarday and I wore a black hoodie. Am I a racist or was I wearing a black hoodie on a cold night to keep warm?

I clicked Bing and went to NEWS

first and biggest Headline under Top News is something about Saturday Night Live.

Then a link to Daily Beast ‘Sunday Talk: Should Sebellius go?’

Then NFL Injury roundup

Then a row of “trending topics” of mostly fluff(how is this news??)

It doesn’t get much better, some ‘real news’ is kind of mixed in there.

underneath that, smaller headlines.

The article states the school is known as being white trash. The mother and daughter are white and didn’t waste money on costumes. I fail to understand the problem. People go out of their way to make up offendedness. I think I’ll wear a placard with “I’m offended that you’re offended” for Halloween.

This isn’t about that at all:

1. U can’t slur blacks

2. Blacks can slur each other loudly all day
;
3. Whites shall be prevented from slurring *themselves*

In fact this story is all about preserving black privelege.

Sorry.

My brother won first prize for a similar costume he wore about 4 years ago, of course the party wasn’t attended by the constantly offended.

Oh, for the love of Mike.

Halloween has become National White Trash Day for better or for worse. This woman and her daughter are illustrating the obvious. If anyone thinks we can celebrate Halloween in good taste, he's [or am I supposed to say they're] too worried about nonsense.
