If the PC patrol is going to monitor Halloween costumes now well then 1/2 of the costumes in stores will be taken off the shelf, because most are offensive especially adult ones.
Give me a break I work in Software Engineering, if I came to a company hosted costume party dressed as an East Indian Support Tech with an H1-B Visa stamped to my shirt and sign that said "let me have your job America"...I think some people would get offended.

It is called being appropriate, an ICE white guy dressing up like a Black guy behind bars is very inappropriate and shows some true underlying racism if you ask me. What was the point of making yourself black in jail?

How old are we here? Are you not familiar with Government or Contracting work ethics?

It may be funny if you knew everyone, however especially in a work or government hosted function it can come off a little bigoted.

Germans and Irish(I know) pride themselves on bar drinking, I doubt that is the same as a White guy putting on Black paint and showing up in a prison get up.

Well, this is an aside, but I have worked in far too many government outfits, and I can tell you there is very little work ethic in general to be found.
