TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama is again
responding to an incident of racially insensitive language on the
Tuscaloosa campus.

The administration sent students a mass e-mail Wednesday saying someone had used chalk to write disparaging words about various
ethnic and racial groups, including blacks and whites. The e-mail didn't say exactly what was written or where the incident occurred.

But the writing included the words "First Amendment." A message from university vice president Mark Nelson says the school supports free-speech rights, but it calls the incident "mean-spirited and unacceptable."

A member of a white fraternity is currently being disciplined after being accused of yelling a racial slur at a black man on campus last weekend.
