    You don't think that's offensive to the people they are mocking?

    I am trying to find what is offensive. Then again, I am not Mexican nor am I easily offended.

    Would it be offensive if they dressed up as a stereotype of another group or ethnicity of people? Would Chinese hats, thick glasses and big teeth be okay? Would the university president's staff dressed in blackface be okay?

    If Eli Caputo and his staff dressed in a similar manner I'd be upset that the leader of the States main university had so little regard for others by stereotyping them like this.
    I guess Hispanics don't matter...

    It's a Halloween party! People dress up for Halloween parties. And just wearing a Sombrero and poncho doesn't mean you're belittling Mexicans. They look like a group of gringos on vacay.

    There was a college somewhere recently where there was a protest over something similar I believe in the cafeteria.

    People who will be offended in the next few days:

    Witches
    Super heros
    Frankenstein
    Princesses
    Cartoon characters

    Feel free to add to the list ...


    @ShaunKing (whoever he is) can stay very busy the next few days if he wants to.

    Louisville has issued an apology. What kind of leadership do they have at Louisville?
