Fraternity Suspended For Jackson 5 Halloween Get-up The University of Tennessee fraternity of Kappa Sigma has been suspended over some of its members dressing up as The Jackson 5 for Halloween. Members of the fraternity were unavailable for comment. UT Vice President and Provost Loren Crabtree said an investigation is ongoing into the event, in which male fraternity members walked as Michael, Tito, Jermaine, et al in public. The frat boys' costume also included blackface. Crabtree called the incident “particularly distressing” due to the frat’s participation in Uni events to "celebrate Africa's cultural, entertainment and educational contributions to non-African cultures around the world."

What a bunch of bullshit. If a black guy painted his face white and acted like like Motley Crue, who would give a fuck? Why don't you try to find info on who's taking disciplinary action against him, so we can voice outrage against the school and its officials. It would be MUCH MUCH different if they were mocking someone like Martin Luther King Jr or Malcolm X (from a PC standpoint), but when you're talking about the Jackson 5, I say they're fair game. Fuck em.

Was it last year that an Auburn University frat did something similar? except they had people in nooses, KKK, etc. lots of folks were forced to go to "diversity camp."
