school cancels halloween because its not inclusive

Some schools in northern Chicago suburbs have decided to “move away” from Halloween celebrations as part of an effort aimed at being more inclusive.

Evanston/Skokie School District 65 wrote in a message to parents:

“While we recognize that Halloween is a fun tradition for many, it is not a holiday that is celebrated by everyone for various reasons and we want to honor that,” the message reads. “We are also aware of the range of inequities that are embedded in Halloween celebrations that take place as part of the school day and the unintended negative impact that it can have on students, families, and staff. As a result, we support our schools that are moving away from Halloween celebrations that include costumes and similar traditions.”

floss dance woman punch

A video showed up online recently showing a young guy doing what is commonly known as “The Floss” while waiting at a cash machine. He is last in line and a young woman is just ahead of him. For whatever reason, he thought it would be funny to do a dance while having his friend record the video.

There appears to be no actual contact between him and the woman in front, but having caught him doing his dance in her peripheral vision, the woman turns around abruptly, asks no questions, but immediately whacks the guy hard in the side of the head, knocking his glasses off.
