(Tempe, AZ) -- An Arizona State University fraternity is suspended for throwing a controversial Martin Luther King, Jr. party. Pictures emerged on social networking sites from a Tau Kappa Epsilon event. Attendees were encouraged to wear basketball jerseys, flash gang signs and drink out of watermelons. ASU officials say they have suspended the chapter's operations and will take, quote, "additional action against individuals involved." TKE officials released a statement claiming they do not condone the discriminatory party theme and take pride in diversity and uniqueness.
