With that eight-second clip, we now have the most racist frat chant of the 2015 winter semester. Appalling. We have a bridge in Alabama we'd like to show these douchebags. Yeah, the same one that the POTUS visited yesterday.
I know I speak for all when I say I'm disgusted and shocked by the video involving our @sae1856 chapter at Uof OK. They will be dealt with.— Brad Cohen (@SAE_ESA_brad) March 9, 2015
Says the site that leaked the video (Total Frat Move): "Racism running rampant among fraternities is [a stereotype] that is—unfortunately—alive and well because of people like this. Exposing it brings me pleasure." Root 'em out.
Brad Cohen, the national president of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, said the chapter "has immediately been placed on a cease and desist."
We are investigating the details and will sanction those who are responsible.— Sigma Alpha Epsilon (@sae1856) March 8, 2015
"We apologize for the unacceptable and racist behavior of the individuals in the video, and we are disgusted that any member would act in such a way. Furthermore, we are embarrassed by this video and offer our empathy not only to anyone outside the organization who is offended but also to our brothers who come from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities," Sigma Alpha Epsilon wrote in an online statement.
