Here is the link to the actual statement.

It's basically just saying "Please be considerate of other people and cultures when you're dressing up."

There is no threat of punishment or consequences. And I'm sure it will be ignored by anyone that wants to.

If I went to school there, I would have responded by throwing a "free speech" costume party, where attendees had to dress up wearing one of the criticized costumes or be prohibited entry.  I would also provide a prize to the most "over-sexualised" costume.

I wonder where in the Constitution it says that US citizens have the right to not be offended....

I'm okay with this. I've never - not once - seen somebody wearing a sombrero who was not either a character in a Western or an asshole attempting to emulate a negative stereotype.

Stop being assholes. Halloween is for candy, kids and sexy witch costumes.

Are people still going to white knight college as a place to become a free thinker?

By the phrasing of the article, it seems that this isn't going to be enforced and is simply a request. The only disciplinary actions will go out to the frat that hosts the Pimp n Ho party.

Living in Texas I've known quite a few Mexican Americans in my day and I've never met a single one who would be offended if you wore a sombrero.

What, Wiccans don't qualify? It's OK to be bigoted against a pagan religion because it doesn't conform to their Judeo-Christian beliefs?
And don't even get me started on Devil costumes and Satanists.
Bigoted bastards.

being stupid is so easy

Ban sexy costumes and I hope you get leveled by a meteor.   A shiat covered meteor.
