BOULDER — The University of Colorado at Boulder is asking students not to wear Halloween costumes that might offend others.

Dean of Students Christian Gonzales said in a message to students that dressing up as someone from another culture can lead to hurtful portrayals of other cultures.

According to KMGH-TV (http://tinyurl.com/m8uu98p ), students are being asked to avoid wearing blackface, sombreros, and dressing up as "squaws" or cowboys.
