    Oklahoma fraternity shut down for "racist" video

    KAKE - Wichita, KS

    NORMAN, OKLA. A University of Oklahoma fraternity will close and its members will be suspended after the group's national headquarters says a video of members participating in a racist chant was posted online.

    Sigma Alpha Epsilon said Sunday night that an investigation had confirmed the contents of a video showing multiple people chanting a racial slur against blacks and indicating that blacks would never be admitted to the fraternity. The chant also references lynching.

    Oklahoma News9.com reports:

    The 10-second video clip first surfaced sometime early Sunday afternoon and immediately went viral. The footage appears to be shot by a passenger on a bus with several members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

    In the brief video, you can hear and see the members loudly chanting together, "There will never be a n***** SAE." SAE is a reference to the fraternity's Greek letters.

    The chant repeats the first verse, then goes on to say, "You can hang them from a tree, but they'll never sign with me."

    The video is believed to have been shot on Saturday while the fraternity was on a chartered bus for a date night.

    A bunch of these yahoos were on a bus hooting and hollerin and got racial with their "fun". Presumably someone on that bus was embarrassed to death because they gave the video clip to a black student group which posted it on You Tube.
