AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Hundreds of people have gathered at the University of Texas to rally against how Hispanics were portrayed at a weekend fraternity party.

One of the rally’s organizers tells the Austin American-Statesman the Thursday event wasn’t meant to attack the fraternity, but to educate about why the party was wrong.

The school is investigating Phi Gamma Delta after the university’s newspaper reported partygoers wore sombreros, ponchos, construction worker outfits and military gear.

The fraternity’s president has apologized for “any offensive behavior or attire.” He says the party was intended to have a western theme.

The Saturday party took place at the fraternity’s house on the north end of campus.
