ASU Frat's "MLK Black Party" Defended by Black Civil Rights Advocate

Amid all the outrage over ASU fraternity brothers having an "MLK Black Party," where white students mocked black people to go along with the party's theme, there is one person who's defending the students who hosted the party.

Michael Meyers, who's black and the head of the New York Civil Rights Coalition, urges ASU president Michael Crow not to take disciplinary action against the students involved with the party. New Times needed Meyers to explain this one.
