Paris Hilton Goes As Insensitive Racist For Halloween

Illustration for article titled Paris Hilton Goes As Insensitive Racist For Halloween

Paris showed up at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. wearing something like the "seductive squaw" costume that our brosite deemed racist. If she'd added a long black wig, it could have been Cher! Instead it was just racist.

Hmm. I'm not really sure if I would consider this racist.

What about it makes Native Americans look bad? Is it just about dressing up as an ethnicity that you're not? Is it because it's perpetuating some vague stereotype of Native American women as overtly sexual? Are all stereotypes negative?

Maybe I would be more upset if she dressed up as a Native American and went around, I don't know, pretending to kill cowboys. Maybe? But just being a sexy-whatever...I'm kind of ambivalent about that.
