The University of Tennessee <a href="http://www.knoxnews.com/kns/local_news/article/0,1406,KNS_347_1514087,00.html">suspended the Kappa Sigma fraternity</a> due to the fact that a group of their members dressed up in blackface as the Jackson 5 and walked in public to a party. African American students have complained and the fraternity's national chapter has chosen to also suspend them. National may or may not reinstate them as a chapter in the future. Granted, this was probably in bad taste and not the smartest choice of costumes. But, was it a hostile, racist act? I can't help wondering if the Kappa Sigma brothers chose these costumes malisciously (the fraternity was not available for comment according to the article), or were just plain stupid? Meanwhile, a seventeen year old student at Marana High School in Tucson, AZ spent Halloween in the juvenile lockup after appearing at school dressed as a masked terrorist. <a href="http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/local/11_1_02halloween_prank.html">Luis Soto jumped onto a table in the cafeteria on Halloween and waved around a gun</a>, threatening to kill students. Students were not aware Soto's actions were a prank.
