I suppose it's better than dressing as hookers

That allegedly Louisville used to recruit basketball players. But still. Wasn't anyone thinking before this happened? From The Huffington Post.

University Of Louisville Sorry A Bunch Of Its Staff Wore Sombreros And Fake Mustaches
The University of Louisville issued an apology on Thursday, after a community outcry over a photograph showing school staff, including school President James Ramsey, donning sombreros and other items associated with Hispanic culture during a party. 
In a statement directed to the Hispanic and Latino faculty, staff and students, Ramsey' office said the school will initiate diversity training immediately. 
The photograph, taken at a staff luncheon, was posted on the website of Louisville's newspaper, the Courier-Journal, along with a story about a university-owned mansion that sits vacant except for certain events, like fundraisers and staff luncheons. 
The photo shows Ramsey wearing a sombrero and multi-colored poncho. Women in the image are wearing similar hats along with facial hair, while other men are wearing veils. Several people are also holding maracas.
