A group of college students is speaking out against Halloween costumes that its members see as being racist and insulting to minorities.

The Daily Mail reports that the student group at Ohio University called Students Teaching Against Racism in Society has created a series of posters to point out that many Halloween costumes deal in racial and ethnic stereotypes.

The posters have the headline, "We're a Culture, Not a Costume," with a photo of a member of an ethnic group holding up a picture of an offensive costume. It reads, "This is not who I am, and this is not okay."
