While the ignorant students were chanting about lynching and disenfranchising blacks from their fraternity, The infamous Oklahoma State University SAE fraternity, short for Sigma Alpha Epsilon, will go down in history as being one of the first Greek letter organizations to receive swift and serious punishment for a heinous act. A video went viral of fraternity brothers chanting, ‘There will never be a n—– in SAE’ to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”
The University of Oklahoma has severed ties with Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and could expel some members shown in a video chanting racist remarks, school President David Boren tweeted: “To those who have misused their free speech in such a reprehensible way, I have a message for you. You are disgraceful,” … “You have violated all that we stand for. You should not have the privilege of calling yourself ‘Sooners.'”
Boren added under his tutelage, the university will set “an example to the entire country of how to deal with this issue. There must be zero tolerance for racism everywhere in our nation.”
An unsuspecting casualty of their stupidity is a Black chef who is known simply as Howard. He’s worked at Sigma Alpha Epsilon for more than 15 years,
A former SAE member created an Indiegogo fundraiser page that reads: “He is going to lose his job because of a bus full of racist kids… Because of these kids’ actions, many will be affected. None more so than Howard.
“Howard was always there to chat with you’ but now ‘he is going to learn who has been working for. And through some cruel twist of fate, he has to lose the job that he has held for over a decade.”
So far they’ve raised over $19,000; the goal is $50,000.
(Update: As of Tuesday, March 10, 2015, they’ve reached 107% of their goal)
