Lucy Kinder reports at the UK Telegraph:
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).
According to Kinder, "A university spokesman called cowboy costumes a 'crude stereotype'."
