WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) _ A fraternity at Central Missouri State
University has been suspended for hosting a ``racially
insensitive'' party around Martin Luther King Junior Day.
A university investigation found that the January event, called
a ``chicken and beer'' party, at the Alpha Kappa Lambda's housing
complex mocked the national King holiday. Newspaper reports say
people at the party wore doo-rags and baggy pants and then drank
beer from 40-ounce bottles and ate fried chicken.
The fraternity's national headquarters suspended it Thursday and
is taking steps to cancel the chapter's charter.
Suspension means that the fraternity can't participate in campus
events as a social organization and no longer has access to campus
