ABC News reported:
Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s national headquarters closed its chapter at the University of Oklahoma Sunday after a video emerged purportedly showing members of the chapter singing a racist chant.
The video quickly gained visibility online. It was obtained and posted to Twitter by Unheard, which describes itself as “an alliance of black students organized for change within campus administration and atmosphere.” The video shows young men on a bus chanting, “There will never be a n—-r at SAE.”
The tweet, directed at OU president David Boren, said “Racism is alive at The University of Oklahoma.”
Students at the university planned to demonstrate on the Norman, Oklahoma, campus at 7:30 a.m. local time. A prayer vigil was held Sunday night.
The frat house was vandalized overnight, defaced with graffiti.
