Leave Your Social Justice out of Halloween

It is safe to say that Halloween, at least nowadays, is a child’s holiday. Dressing up as your favorite Disney character or superhero and collecting candy from houses on your street seems like any red-blooded kid’s dream. Although, I am not afraid to admit that I, a 23-year old man, still participate in the dressing up part as well. But what used to be a fun holiday that chimes in the rest of the year’s winter festivities has become a platform for social justice warriors to sink their ideas into and politicize another enjoyable activity.

Are you a Twitter Activist or a Political Activist?

Social media–especially Twitter–has been impacted by this past presidential election. Not a day that goes by where the media doesn’t go absolutely wild over Trump’s blatant, and often overdone, tweets. The company and its founders are benefiting greatly from the undeniable attention the social network is receiving. However, active Twitter users know that it is not just the President who is loud on Twitter. It’s also the people who oppose him. Particularly for the past ten months, Twitter has been a political battleground. Many passionate people use Twitter to relieve political angst, often in a way that leads to a loss...
