If we learned anything this Halloween season, it’s that people aren’t afraid to be offensive.

And if the multiple blackface costumes we saw weren’t indication enough, a new Huff Post poll is revealing that more than four in 10 Americans believe it’s acceptable to wear the makeup on Halloween.

According to the new poll, 43 percent of Americans think it’s acceptable for a white person to wear blackface in order to appear as a black person on Halloween, while only 37 percent think it’s unacceptable. And respondents were almost equally divided on whether it’s acceptable to dress specifically as an ethnic stereotype on Halloween. Forty percent said it’s acceptable and 41 percent said it’s unacceptable.

The new poll even breaks the numbers down by race.

Among white respondents to the new poll, 46 percent said it’s acceptable to wear blackface on Halloween, while 44 percent said it was acceptable to dress as an ethnic stereotype.

Black respondents disagreed. By a 68 percent to 21 percent margin, most said it was unacceptable for a white person to wear blackface to dress up as a black person on Halloween, while by a 76 percent to 17 percent most said it’s unacceptable to dress up as a racial or ethnic stereotype.

Why does none of this surprise us? For more information on the poll, click here.
