Don't do anything on Halloween  -- It's getting close to that

University of Colorado Boulder tells students to avoid costumes including cowboys, Indians, white trash or anything potentially deemed "offensive"

University students in America have been told not to wear "offensive" halloween costumes including cowboys, indians and anything involving a sombrero.

Students at the University of Colorado Boulder have also been told to avoid "white trash" costumes and anything that portrays a particular culture as "over-sexualised"- which the university says includes dressing up as a geisha or a "squaw" (indigenous woman).

They are also asked not to host parties with offensive themes including those with “ghetto” or "hillbilly" themes or those associated with "crime or sex work."

In the letter sent by a university official students are asked to consider the impact that their costumes could have.

Christina Gonzales, the dean of students, wrote: "Making the choice to dress up as someone from another culture, either with the intention of being humorous or without the intention of being disrespectful, can lead to inaccurate and hurtful portrayals of other people's cultures.

A university spokesman called cowboy costumes a "crude stereotype"

Students at the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities have also been asked to make sure their Halloween costumes are politically correct.

In a letter officials said: "please keep in mind that certain Halloween costumes inappropriately perpetuate racial, cultural, and gender stereotypes."

So don't dress up as ghosts either - that's disrespectful to the "dear departed" - isn't it?

This means you can only dress as something representing an animal or inanimate object. Even appearing as a fictional or fantasy human may be seen as offending some person or group.

@4:26 - what kind of a fucking insult is that?

It would be a much shorter list if they listed the "allowed" costumes. It doesn't matter what costume the students select, someone WILL be offended.

No one, NO ONE says a d*mn thing about the wackos that live in SanFran and dress offensively EVERY FRICKEN day. But when it comes to kids having ONE night of fun, scr*w them. Well, SCR*W YOU, but that would be right up your alley, wouldn't it? ;-)

4:12 AM: Wrong name at the end. Should be Ms. Pelosi. Or Ms. Feinstein.

Is there anything that doesn't offend a liberal? Humor, truth, patriotism, individualism, becoming wealthy (unless it is the liberal doing that of course) all offend them. And now Halloween costumes are offensive.

What a bunch of sad, humorless, frightened people.

Dean, what the hell is wrong with you? Are you so uncreative that you cannot come up with your own retort? Typical right wing. They steal from the creative and pass it off as there own.

"Touched a nerve, did I?"

Nope. Just pointing out what a vile person you are.

How about dressing up as Rep. Joe Wilson? You remember, he's the fellow who yelled out "You lie!" during The Dear Golfer's SOTU address. Apparently he was right.

I wonder how these University Pussietards would react to someone going out as a al queda with fake bombs strapped to their bodies?
