A white mother has dressed her son up as a slave with chains for Halloween.
A white Brazilian mom has taken to instagram and posted pictures of her son in slave clothes. She personally colored his entire body in Brown.
Her son was dressed to go to a Halloween party. She was met with backlash at the private school, and she was also met with backlash on Instagram. After the extreme backlash, she apologized and completely deleted her instagram account. Here are the pictures,
The mother apologized saying
‘I just wanted to apologize for the fact! It has never been my intention to offend anyone, I am extremely sorry for everything that has happened. I feel VERY wrong with the horrid curses and threats that they are sending me. Apologies to all, from the bottom of my heart! #Peace.’
For many black Brazilians, her actions have opened many wounds of Brazil’s slavery past.
The private school has released a statement denouncing the actions of the mother and her actions.
‘Unfortunately, the choice of the costume for participation of the Halloween, made by the student’s family, touched on a historical wound of our country,’
