The number one reason why black folks, family and friends don’t celebrate Halloween as much as white folks is because we still tend to see Halloween as demonic and unworthy of “celebration. Not only do we still tend to see Halloween as demonic but we continue to model this belief in full view of our children. Thus teaching the new generation the same age old myths our Mother’s taught us.
The children in the above photo were interviewed for this post and the truth is each one has been taught and or believes in some shape, form or fashion that Halloween is the “Devils” holiday.
What other myths do we continue to teach our children as the door bells rings?
More to come …
