The Were A Culture Not A Costume Meme is a parody of the campaign by Ohio University students who are part of the organization S.T.A.R.S which aims to to stop racially insensitive costumes. The original campaign which says “Were a culture not a costume. This is not who I am and this is not okay” features children of different ethnicities holding up pictures of people dressed in costumes that reflect that particular culture or ethnicity. The parody makes fun of this and features photoshopped versions of this campaign. For examples a Dog holding up a picture of a person dressed in a dog costume, saying that this is not ok.
