Please do not dress up for Halloween as blackface, brownface, or yellowface. Don’t be stupid.

Update 10/27/2013: Absolutely heinous, disgusting, and abhorrent. Someone on FB recently posted their 2013 Halloween costume of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin – with a gunshot to the chest.

Beyond reprehensible.

So, I’ll say it again. Don’t be racist. Don’t be stupid. [via Gawker]

Americans love Halloween. In fact, maybe it’s fair to say we go crazy about Halloween. How crazy?

Americans spend $310 million dollars/year on costumes…for our pets. Wow.

In total, Americans spend between $6.5 – $6.86 billion dollars on all things Halloween: costumes, candy, and decoration (2012). Now, it’s up to $6.9B in 2013.. More wowzers. And it’s no longer Americans…many in the global community are adopting the zanyness of Halloween.

So, as the average American consumer spends about $27 on costumes (as of 2012) and $79.03 on all things Halloween (2013), I thought it’s never too early to encourage folks to be careful how they dress up for Halloween…even if it’s “all in the spirit of fun.”

Listen, before you go crazy and call me crazy, a hater, a lunatic, an angry Asian man, or an angry Christian Asian pastor man…I like fun, too. I do. I really do. And while my social life is nearly zilch, I like fun parties but it’s all fun and games until someone shows up at a costume party or…err…at your front door trick-or-treating…in a borderline racist costume.

my selections for the best & worst costumes

First, a simple question:

What did you dress up as for your respective costume gatherings?

I came to our church’s “Truck or Treat” party for the kids without a costume and got boo’ed so I went into my office and put on my clubs in the back to dress up as a ‘caddie.’ I thought it was a good idea until I was walking around and hit a couple little kids with my irons. Not good.

Anyways, here’s the best & worst costumes:  Mr. ShawWow salesman and some dude at Quest dressing up as “Pastor Eugene.” Read the rest of this entry »

I'm no fan of prosperity theology, prayer of jabez, or the anointed lure...unless it involves fishing. Then, I'm all about it. 
Bless me, Jesus! #DoublePortion Gone fishing. First monster bass.

Going offline to train for the World Bass Championships. See you all next week. Grateful. Enjoying a moment with my earthly father and my Heavenly Father. Road trip continued.
Mountains are awesome. Road trip. Epic clouds. Oceans.
