    Univ. of Oklahoma severs ties with frat after racist chant

    Univ. of Oklahoma severs ties with frat after racist chant

    President David Boren said he was sickened and couldn't eat or sleep after learning about the video Sunday afternoon. The video, which was posted online, shows several people on a bus participating in a chant that included a racial slur, referenced lynching and indicated black students would never be admitted to OU's chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

    The Oklahoma football team decided to protest rather than practice on Monday. At the team's indoor practice facility, coach Bob Stoops led the way as players, joined by athletic director Joe Castiglione, walked arm-in-arm, wearing black. Meanwhile, a top high school recruit withdrew his commitment to the university after seeing the video.
    Sigma Alpha Epsilon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In 1982 SAE members at the University of Cincinnati were suspended for a racially demeaning party corresponding with Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.[17] In 2013 SAE members at Washington University in St. Louis were suspended for singing racial slurs to African American Students.[18] In 2014, SAE members at Clemson University were suspended for throwing a racially charged, "Cripmas" party.[19] In 2014, SAE members at the University of Arizona were suspended for attacking Jewish students.[20]
    They're trying to fool people into believing that racism isn't part of this fraternity. It most certainly looks like it. It just took unquestionable video evidence and the school's money makers (athletes) leaving for them to take notice.

    Cell phones with cameras on them have been around enough for people to start realizing everything they say and do will probably show up on YouTube. There's no doubt this Frat had a history, but this video was so stupid and offensive I doubt even they wanted it made public.

    One can think whatever they want. It's probably best not to speak those thoughts so loudly when people are filming and your education is at stake. You get back from life what you put out there.

    I don't think they were kicked out of school.

    Thought police? The hell? So an organization severing ties with another organization that poorly represents it is being thought police? Do we all have to keep every social connection open until the end of time, no matter what?

    If a church severed ties with a secular aid organization for that organization's stance on homosexuality, is the church being 'the thought police'?Ridiculous.

    My point is that you never know. Depending on a schools policy, why risk such asshattery.

    Being a dick shouldn't prevent you from getting an education. In fact, that's the best recipe.

    More like the *vengeance of political correctness. Since when is there punishment for being a racist? When will the Black fraternity with their *shooting crackers song be punished. [assuming they have one]
