Sigma Alpha Epsilon Racists Disbanded

Mar 10, 2015 - 0 Comments

The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter at the University of Oklahoma has been officially disbanded on the viral release of a video showing the frat brothers gaily singing racist rants, chants, and songs. 

The appalling sing-along also contained death threats to fellow students of color and even included the use of the ‘N’ word.

As a consequence, gone from the SAE frat house today are its distinguishing Greek letters, and the university’s outraged administrators have further ordered all fraternity members to vacate the premises by tomorrow.

School president David Boren additionally promised a full investigation of the vulgar videotaped event, one that he said will very likely result in expulsion for those frat leaders responsible for orchestrating it.

"To those who have misused their free speech in such a reprehensible way, I have a message for you," Boren tweeted on Twitter. "You are disgraceful. You have violated all that we stand for.“

The scandalous video has garnered so much attention now that even the White House has weighed in on the matter, Press Secretary Josh Earnest stating that the concerted effort to take Sigma Alpha Epsilon to task for their flagrantly bigoted attitudes  was "an appropriate step."

However, the legal repercussions for certain SAE fraternity members may be even more severe than merely being shunned and disowned, because in their racist lyrics they specifically swear they’ll never allow a black student at UofO to become a frat brother.

America’s hard won Civil Rights Act expressly prohibits race discrimination in any shape, way or form, and that clearly extends to college campuses and the collegiate groups that most colleges typically endorse, such as sororities and fraternities.

In light of this, University of Oklahoma’s irate president vigorously vowed today that his school will be "an example to the entire country of how to deal with this issue. There must be zero tolerance for racism everywhere in our nation," he said.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon's parent-organization has also issued a statement apologizing for its rogue chapter’s unabashed racism, self-consciously adding that such beliefs did not represent those of its other national members.
