The Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter at the University of Oklahoma is no more, following a controversial video that appeared online. The fraternity was evicted from the campus by University President David Boren.
“This is disgraceful,” Boren said, referring to the video.
The 10-second video clip features white members of the SAE fraternity chanting “You can hang ’em in a tree, it will never start with me. There will never be a n****r SAE.”
The “what-were-they-thinking” video rocked the nation. Rapper Wacka Flocka Flame, who was scheduled to perform for the fraternity, cancelled his show, voicing his “intolerance for racism.”
People at Anastasia Date (Facebook.com) have learned that the behavior of the UO SAE members have had a rippling effect. Staff working at the SAE fraternity house are now unemployed. One such employee has worked as a cook at the house for 14 years.
But SAE members may not be the only ones in trouble. Members of the Tri Delta sorority are allegedly heard singing in the jaw-dropping video.
The national SAE organization has threatened to revoke the memberships of anyone involved in the incident.
