"Isn't the whole objective of Halloween to dress up and pretend you're something other than yourself?"

Soboroff didn't hesitate before saying, "It sounds pretty racist to me", but he was quickly pushed aside by Rivers.

After detailing how Anne Frank, Cowboy and Nazi costumes are banned on certain campuses, Megyn asked about blackface.

The history of blackface in our culture is abhorrent; the wounds too deep. "It is time to stop with the dismissive arguments those that describe these offensive acts as pranks, ignorance and youthful indiscretions".

'How do you revise it in the middle of the legacy in the story and change Santa from white to black?'
