Students at the University of North Dakota are planning a protest on Friday to call attention to "Siouxper Drunk" t-shirts worn by some of their colleagues.

UND President Robert Kelley said he was "appalled" by the actions of some students. But he took pains to distance the school from the weekend event where the t-shirts were worn.

"The message on the shirts demonstrated an unacceptable lack of sensitivity and a complete lack of respect for American Indians and all members of the community," Kelly said in a statement.

Indian students and their supporters said Kelly isn't doing enough to address the situation.
