DURHAM, N.C. - The parent organization of Kappa Sigma fraternity has suspended its chapter at Duke University after a weekend party viewed as racist by some students.

Last Friday's party was reported to have featured an Asian theme, but university vice president of student affairs Larry Moneta said the title was changed to international relations after some students complained.

Pictures posted online showed people attending the party dressed in Asian-style clothing and a greeting which mocked Asian dialect.

Kappa Sigma executive director Mitchell Wilson said the national organization will investigate the party and make a final decision based on the results of the probe. Moneta said the school is also considering taking action.

An Asian student group filed a formal complaint and held a rally on Wednesday to protest the fraternity's actions.
