The campaign unfolded last week, and was intended to muster enthusiasm for Saturday’s football game against Colgate University. Free nachos were given out, and students were asked to dress up in ponchos and sombreros. The person with the “best costume” received a prize. The goal was to develop a “festive atmosphere,” according to Jeff Hall, a marketing director for Cornell Athletics.

But what was fun and festive for some, was offensive and hateful for others.
