Can everyone please start proactively telling their white girl friends not to do dia de los muertos facepaint for halloween, especially white folks telling other white folks. I know it’s early september but you can never start to early on curtailing this bullshit.
Why would you do that? Día de los muertos art is beautiful. We decorate with skulls and do the face paint to show respect to the dead. It doesn’t matter who wears the customs or the face paint, what matters is who you honor. Skin color has nothing to do with the dead, skulls are all white.
