A Penn State sorority has become the focus of an investigation after a racist Mexican-themed party picture was posted to the Web, according to the independent Penn State blog, Onward State.

The picture, said to be taken around Halloween, shows the women dressed in sombreros and mustaches. Some of the women held signs that read "Will mow lawn for weed + beer" and "I don't cut grass I smoke it."

The photo was posted on Tumblr and Facebook, where Onward State was able to identify the women tagged in the photo as members of the Chi Omega sorority on campus.

Jessica Riccardi, the president of the Nu Gamma chapter of Chi Omega, confirmed to the student publication the Daily Collegian that the sorority is under investigation. Riccardi also issued an apology.

"Our chapter of Chi Omega sincerely apologizes for portraying inappropriate and untrue stereotypes. The picture in question does not support any of Chi Omega's values or reflect what the organization aspires to be."

The Penn State Panhellenic Council executive board released a statement to the Daily Collegian:
"We are addressing the situation immediately with the members of the chapter in conjunction with their national headquarters."

"This photo has been brought to our attention, and we have looked into the issue," Lisa Powers, director of public information at Penn State, said in a statement to Yahoo News.
"The students in the photo are within their First Amendment rights to express themselves in this way," Powers said. "Although we are certainly appalled that they would display this level of insensitivity and lack of judgment."

Furthermore, Powers added, "These costumes and this group do not represent fraternity and sorority life at Penn State, nor the 95,000 students who attend our university. The Chi Omega sorority sisters have expressed deep remorse over this incident."

Our chapter of Chi Omega sincerely apologizes for portraying inappropriate and untrue stereotypesI thought colleges were supposed to teach critical language skills.

It's a stereotype that Mexicans wear sombreros and all have jobs mowing lawns. Stereotypes are SUPPOSED to be fallacious and false representations of entire groups. That's what makes them stereotypes. So in that sense, what the sorority portrayed WAS a true stereotype.

What the sorority probably meant to say is "We apologize for being jackasses" but thought it would be better if they could somehow add in all these formal and sincere words to help their cause. They just sucked at it, that's all.

I can practically guarantee that the Chi Omega sorority sisters have not expressed one tiny bit of deep remorse. Why would they? The whole article is going after the national sorority, the Panhellenic Council, the college, the system in general - but not a word about the girls themselves.

Get one of those dumbshit bimbos in front of a microphone, then maybe I'll pay attention.

Uh, no, they shouldn't. That's blatant racism. Its only saving grace is that it's probably born of ignorance, rather than hatred.

I am usually a pretty tough critic when it comes to racism, but everyone's getting way too worked up about this. Who cares?

What if they were wearing blackface and fake buck teeth and buckets of chicken and watermelon, holding signs saying "We ain't pickin no cotton. KnowwaI'msayin?"

Do you think it would be as easy to disregard?

What if they were dressed in silly hats and outfits for St Patrick's day and had signs that said, "St Patrick's Drinking Team"?
You think they'd have to apologize to anyone?

The problem I always have when what is and isn't offensive comes up, is that it's not for those that aren't offended to judge.

I'm not personally offended by this, but I sure could see how some would be.
