DALLAS - A protest is planned outside the Dallas home of a former University of Oklahoma fraternity member who was shown in a video chanting a racial slur.

The president of a Dallas-area advocacy group, the Next Generation Action Network, says a peaceful protest is planned Wednesday evening outside the family home of Parker Rice.

The Rev. Dominique Alexander says protesters want to send the message "we're not going to stand for that."

Dallas police Maj. Jimmy Vaughan says police will monitor the protest and make sure traffic isn't blocked. He says officers have been at the house but the family is apparently not home. Media have been parked outside the home in recent days.

Rice has released a statement calling the incident "a horrible mistake" and "a devastating lesson."
