The University of Oklahoma is immediately severing "all ties and affiliations" between the school and its local Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, the university president said today ...

Just wondering how many black fraternities and sororities are on the Sooner campus that do not allow crackers in?
I'm sure they've used that word, too.
Get 'em on film as saying so and take it to the governor, see what happens.
And actually, since the national office pulled the fraternty's license or charter or whatever it is, the university isn't severing ties with anything but a bunch of ex-frat boys squatting in one of the university's buildings.
Fraternities: proving again that the lowest common denominator is really, really low.
For the sake of Oklahoma University, I’m ashamed to the core that these mouth breather Neanderthals ever darkened the campus of OU to expel enough oxygen from their pie hole to utter such flat earth RACIST statements.
Boren kicked them to the curb they must have come from and their prissy frat cover with them.
Good for Boren! Love it.
The local chapter of SAE simply didn't exist at that point.
Not as sure about who actually holds the deed to the house, but if it is on-campus, it's a good bet that the University of Oklahoma now owns the house.
Anybody know if any of these are on Sooner campi?
Funny, the establishment doesn’t treat islam the way it treated this fraternity...thought one wasn’t supposed to condemn the whole group due to the acts of a few of them
“Well you can do whatever you want to us, but we’re not going to sit here, and listen to you badmouth the United States of America.”
"About Robert Smalls and his families" during Civil War days.
A fascinating story.
Smalls was a negro slave and he became an outstanding Civil war hero.
After slaves were emancipated by Lincoln, Smalls became a US representative (Congress) from North Carolina.
My job takes me into many different schools throughout the school day. Here's my lunchroom observation. In the very early years of school, children sit together in the lunch room and play with each other without regard to race. In high school, school kids very rarely casually interact. They may all claim to be friends, but blacks sit with blacks, and whites sit with whites. About the only place they do work/hang out together is on sports teams.
My son never had a black friend over to the house. And, believe me, during his teen years we have seen hundreds of kids in and out of this house and out by the pool. They all nearly ate us into bankruptcy. But... none of those kids were black. Now, he'd deny that he's racist and so would I. But I think it's interesting who his friends were, at least the friends he invited to his home.
My observation of young people and race nowadays is less overt racism (like at OU), and more of a "I just don't care" attitude.
Will the black kids in school pass? Will they go to college? Will they be successful? Will they be millionaires? Will they be homeless? Will they go to prison? The answer isn't hostility, just indifference.
I'm not sure if that's an improvement. I don't know if a liberal would view it as an improvement either. I can say that I don't think social engineering has worked like anyone predicted.
We have so few black kids that there is no division. Black kids and white kids hang out all the time. Interracial dating is just a given. Besides, most of them have at least one white parent.
Having grown up in a city, it was quite a culture change for me.
My son tells me that most of the white guys he knows "boycott" girls who have been thus paired off.
Again, not really hostile in a cross-burning kind of way... just indifference and not wanting to be associated.
It's a poor joke, but I overheard one of his male friends quip, "Once she's gone black, she ain't going to be able to come back."
I think that once the novelty of interracial dating wore off, many of the young ladies couldn't get a date to prom or anywhere else. Word gets out.
I agree with you. My son has just started high school. He went to a small private grammar school and his best friends were all Asians. They came over to our home all the time. Now he is in high school and his circle of friends is expanding and they are more and more white and hispanic. We are hispanic ourselves. I don’t think it’s racism at all, I think it is more a modern form of tribalism. People cluster with those they feel most comfortable with..and often that comfort level begins with appearances.
In a more urban environment, it can be a problem. There seems to still be a taboo against it. I remember talking to a couple who moved here because the husband (white) was getting a lot of flak for being married to a black woman.
“I think that once the novelty of interracial dating wore off, many of the young ladies couldn’t get a date to prom or anywhere else. Word gets out.”
The word that gets out is that you are getting OJ’ed.
I had never thought of it as tribalism. When mine was in high school, the few Hispanics and the very few Asians "caucused" with the white kids. They hung together. I don't think many non-black kids hung out with the black kids, other than the interracial dating scenario I mentioned before.
I’m glad to see Boren taking the initiative. I wish he’d take the initiative with the football team too and get that thing back on the right track....
so this is big news? I don’t think there is a week that has gone by the last 7 years where an incident of racial violence has taken place against someone white and the news reports it as if it was jaywalking.
Just can’t seem to understand white people getting worked up for more than 30 seconds over this.
Exactly, there is obviously no free speech at the University. Free Speech should mean exactly that. But you can’t insult a minority. The President is just another product of our politically correct education system — as are so many other posters on this board..
