News Story: Northwestern State suspends fraternity

This is the chapter of Kappa Sigma that I was at in the late 1980's. They were a bunch of rednecks back then too.

NATCHITOCHES – The Northwestern State University chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity has been suspended indefinitely by the university and the national office.

The move comes as NSU is asking the national office of Kappa Sigma to investigate actions of fraternity members at an off-campus party which took place Wednesday night.

Five members of the fraternity attending an auction were dressed in a racially offensive manner. Photos from the event were posted on the Web site Facebook.

The NSU chapter will not be allowed to have any official events until the investigation is completed. The investigation should be complete within two weeks.

“All of us at the university are disappointed in what appears to be poor judgment on the part of some fraternity members,” said Northwestern State President Dr. Randall J. Webb. “Our university embraces and promotes diversity and will not tolerate any actions or activities that jeopardize the climate of diversity and unity that exists at the university."

I have been trying unsuccessfully to find their Facebook page. I wonder what a "racially offensive manner" means.

My guess...


Update: I found this forum - with over 250 entries - about the subject.

Oh, I'm sure it was something completely innocent, like a lynching or something.
