There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Yeah, that's what I meant by "basically disowned" - but this is a clearer explanation. The student themselves haven't been "disowned" - it's the charter that is gone. The students have only been suspended (for now). But the main point stands.The university can ban any Greek from its campus. And SAE didn't "basically disown" them, they removed their charter. National Greeks get charters removed. Universities order local chapters of Greeks off campus. This isn't an isolated instance. And if the school owned the house, the school can remove the fraternity from the house at any time.
The point being there were people on that bus who as non-members of the fraternity were, IMO, less likely than fellow fraternity members to get a chuckle out of a racist chant. If you think that's a false assumption, that's fine. I don't really care to debate that irrelevant point. Suffice it to say they were idiots and racists, which is a nice combination I think....
