NPR's Debbie Elliott reports that two all-white fraternities at Auburn University in Alabama have been temporarily suspended after members went to Halloween parties in racially offensive costumes. Party photographs — circulated on the Internet — show fraternity brothers posing in Ku Klux Klan sheets, black-face and a noose. Both fraternities have apologized. They have been suspended from social activities while administrators investigate whether the costumes violated Auburn's policy prohibiting racial harassment and discrimination.
