PC overkill?

  1. The University of Colorado Boulder puts the clamps on "offensive" Halloween costumes.

    Is this over the top or not?

    There's no clamp. You're missing an important quote from that story: "University spokesman Bronson Hilliard said that while the school condemns such costumes, students would not be punished for wearing them." The dean asked people to be considerate. And really, college students need to think about the effects of their actions more to avoid becoming the next Racist Fraternity Bro or Angry Sorority Girl.

    I bet a bunch of PC pinheads were offended by this costume.
