Kendi, who grew up in New York and went to school in Virginia, was a finalist in the Prince William County Martin Luther King, Jr. oratorical contest. Hosted by the Delta Theta Sigma Alumnae Chapter, the contest encourages children from across Northern Virginia to display extraordinary oratorical and rhetoric skills in honor of Dr. King. He took the stage and made a presentation that he later came to regret. “I more or less expressed many of the ideas that had been...

    A Message From Tyrone Speller, Phi Delta Theta Chapter President At The University Of Oklahoma 03.11.2015 Oklahoma_Alpha This week, The University of Oklahoma has gone from being known as one of the most prestigious schools in the country to being unfairly characterized as a racist institution. The actions of the members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity have deeply saddened me and the rest of the OU community, though I do not feel they represent the views of the entire OU Greek community and the University. As an African American male in the OU Greek community, I was recently elected...

    As anti-racism protests continue to take place on the University of Oklahoma campus following a viral video clip displaying Sigma Alpha Epsilon chanting racist lyrics about their chapter, it appears the college is also beginning to experience backlash from entertainers.

    A sorority at the beleaguered University of Oklahoma has come under fire over its involvement in the racist chant by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity over the weekend. The Delta Delta Deltas have been identified as the sorority members on a chartered bus when frat brothers started singing 'there will never be a n**** in SAE.' At least one female student can be seen in the video. She appears to raise her cell phone to record the incident. Her date, however, can be seen clapping to the song. It is also believed that female voices can be heard cheering on...

    Knocked flat on his back, Landry Jones took a swipe at the ball he'd just fumbled and did his best to keep it -- and the Red River Rivalry -- from getting away. Linebacker Jared Norton came rushing in with a chance to put No. 21 Texas in prime position for a tying touchdown, only to see the ball roll out of bounds. In control from the beginning, No. 8 Oklahoma was just happy to survive with a 28-20 win over its main rival Saturday.

    NORMAN, Oklahoma -- A Muslim advocacy group with a chapter in Oklahoma City is being criticized for having ties to terrorist organizations. For the past year the Council on American-Islamic Relations, known as CAIR, has been a growing concern for lawmakers in Washington. Legislative leaders have claimed the Muslim group has been helping to funnel money to terrorist, a sentiment that is now starting to be felt in Oklahoma. In an effort to shed light on the Muslim organization, protestors with Oklahomans Against CAIR Hate demonstrated outside OU's Meacham Auditorium. That is where CAIR showed a documentary Saturday night on...

    Next weekend, fans of Oklahoma and Brigham Young will congregate outside Cowboys Stadium for tailgate parties, with one discernible difference. One side will be imbibing beer by the gallons; the other, sipping orange juice. Sooner and Cougar fans both share a fervor for their historically successful football teams. But BYU and its football program are worlds apart from any other. "Obviously BYU’s affiliation with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” said Roy Brinkerhoff, BYU’s assistant manager of alumni activities, "that alone creates huge differences.” BYU, located in pristine Provo, Utah, is the largest private and largest religiously-affiliated...
