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.
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
