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 ...

There is nothing dumber than a frat boy full of Coors Light, especially when he has a video camera.
This is not a Free Speech issue.
The frat lost it’s national charter to a private organization and university policy states that a frat must have a national charter to be on campus.
Exactly, there is obviously no free speech at the University. Free Speech should mean exactly that. But you cant insult a minority. The President is just another product of our politically correct education system as are so many other posters on this board..
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
What part of this amendment specifically was violated at the university?
You appear to be another poster confusing free speech with the right to say whatever you want with no consequences.
How many of these now former frat boys have lost their freedom (as in how many are incarcerated due to their speech).
None. Zero. They’re still free to say whatever they want.
Because saying something racist is the worst possible crime that you can commit in this country.
“Because saying something racist is the worst possible crime that you can commit in this country.”
its genocidal when it comes out of a white mouth.
But racial beatings, rapes, murders by blacks is ho hum.
You are a Sooner alum, no? Please click the link at reply #7 and let us know if any of these BLACK fraternity/sorority organizations are present at OU and if any of them have nondiscrimination policies. I’ve searched for the answer but can’t find a list of the Greek organizations on campus. SAE has a nondiscrimination policy. This group of individuals violated the fraternity policy. Here’s the statement from SAE from the article:
“The national SAE organization said in its own statement that it closed the Oklahoma Kappa chapter at the University of Oklahoma and suspended all of the fraternity’s members — and the members involved with the incident could have their membership privileges revoked permanently. 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,” the online statement read. “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 races.”
The problem is the only people capable of being racists are white. Black fraternities and sororities, NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, etc, etc discriminate against whites but are not racist. It’s a one-way-street and it’s wrong.
That is so untrue.
Blacks say racist things all the time and nobody blinks - much less call it a crime.
I don’t know the answer to your question.
I guess I should have qualified it as “A white person saying something racist is the worst possible crime that you can commit in this country.”
It is a free speech issue. The frat lost its national charter is appropriate as is students shunning the chapter. But the “authority” whether it be the government or the University Pres, taking action is not.
“You appear to be another poster confusing free speech with the right to say whatever you want with no consequences.
I am not confusing anything. If students shun the fraternity or it loses its charter (as is the case) fine, that is consequences. But the authority, whether it be the government or the President of the U to look at kicking the individuals out is BS and is a hit on free speech. The consequences should come from the people around them, not from authority, especially when is it PC BS. No Black fraternity would ever have anything happen to them regardless of what they have already said or will say or do. I am sick and tired of Blacks saying/doing anything they want with no consequences, but let them be “offended” (which happens at a drop of a hat) and the people involved must be persecuted or prosecuted. And you and others like you fall full in line for the PC BS.
PC = Thought Control Commissars
There was at least 1 all-black fraternity when I was OU thirty years ago (as well as a Black Student Union). Don’t know about nondiscrimination policies.
I’m not sure who’s on campus now but I did see Alpha Phi Alpha listed here: http://www.ou.edu/content/studentlife/get_involved/student_organizations/rsos.html
You are aware that David Boren is a DemonRAT? He's in the same group as the the Ku Klux Klan, Nazis, muzzies and the fascist regime of the hussein/holder duo. 'RATs are evil and the perpetual enemy.
This happened on his watch and he's solely to blame. Conservative Governor Mary Fallin needs to fire Boren now and replace him with a Tea Party Republican.
Thanks for your reply. This story is getting legs. Megan Kelly is featuring it right now on FoxNews and interviewing a ‘concerned’ black OU student. She didn’t ask him if he was in Alpha Phi Alpha or any other black fraternity and if so, what nondiscrimination policies does your fraternity enforce. I don’t do FaceBook or Tweet, otherwise I’d send Kelly one to give this issue a ‘fair and balanced’ look.
I’m going to go to her website to see if I can send her an email.
Well, so much for ‘fair and balanced’ at The Kelly File at FoxNews. My email got zotted while I was typing it.
They got a touchier Mod than FR.
ping to #36
Blah, blah, blah.
Boren was but barely a moderate dem, yes, and from back in the day when moderate dems were moderate. He now fits nicely in VERY conservative Oklahoma.
The rest of your slander slog has to be dug up from under a rock to be sourced.
You are absolutely right.
There are two standards - for law enforcement, academic achievement, expectations.
You don't also think there are moderate muzzies do you?
