Ohio University’s Students Teaching About Racism (STARS) is out with another reminder to not be a racist idiot this Halloween. The students began making posters with the slogan “We’re a culture, not a costume” as a public awareness tactic to draw attention to degrading and racist Halloween costumes back in 2011 and followed up last year with another set of reminders.

Former STARS president Sarah Williams explained to Colorlines back in 2011 that the idea for the campaign came after she snapped a picture of a fellow student in blackface at a 2010 Halloween party.
