    Why must anyone carry this negativity in their hearts? Cracker, nigger, whore, wetback,dick, queer, bitch....why?
    Stop it, teach your kids to be respectful and also earn respect.
    It's a growing process. [generally] The culture we have today doesn't help the situation. White kids listening to vulgar Rap music, then trying to emulate them.

    No, I'm acknowledging that you made it, and dismissing it because it is absurd. The fact that people are SAE is not an coincidental component as with your catholic comparison. It's what ties them all of the situations together. The people chanting, and engaging in the various activities were doing it as part of their group dynamic. They threw racist parties in their official SAE capacity, they chanted racist rants during a fraternity event. It's not like they just so happened to be a bunch of drunk kids on a bus with nothing to do but waste time. These were unrelated circumstances across various states and decades where everyone involved was acting within acceptable paradigms. They are unrelated in that they weren't organized by the same people. So how is it possible that 7-8 different chapters in as many universities all independently thought about engaging in racist activities? That's a hell of a ****ing PR nightmare at best and proof of a culture within the organization at worst. When it was made public, everybody said they were sorry. If they hadn't been caught, they would have kept on doing it. That's why it's obvious that it's an organizational thing.

    That too, but I was referring to the actions of the SAE fraternity.

    Agreed. It wasn't national. And the song has probably been passed down through the years by the brothers.

    Agreed, the fraternity has a demonstrated record of this sort of behavior nationally. It should have never been allowed on the campus to begin with.

    The video from the OP details some of this.

    You're agreeing with me? What's the catch?

    I can't watch videos on this computer. What in the video shows that the SAE national organization promotes racism?

    None, but we can make one up if you really need there to be. I figure even the blind squirrel gets some of the nuts.
