Out of Oklahoma fraternity, nine seconds of racism, hatred

It’s just nine seconds of video. Nine seconds of self-destruction. Nine seconds of hate and remarkable stupidity, dragging us back into some of the darkest days of our country’s history.

The video captures members of a University of Oklahoma fraternity, dressed in formal wear and accompanied by their dates, riding on a bus either to or from an event. They are singing to the tune of “If You’re Happy And You Know It”. They do seem happy; they do seem to know it. But the lyrics have been changed.

Some news accounts have referred vaguely to those revised lyrics as a “racist chant,” but that strips it of its chilling power.

Put bluntly, because it ought to be put bluntly, the chant goes like this:

“There will never be a nigger at SAE. You can hang him from a tree, but he’ll never sign with me. There will never be a nigger at SAE.”

And here’s the video in question:

Nine seconds, but it tells you a lot.

For example, it’s not one person chanting. It’s a collective action, expressing a group sentiment. And clearly, this wasn’t the first time the group had sung this song. It was familiar enough to those in attendance that they didn’t need to be taught the words. You have to wonder how many years, decades, even generations that song had been sung within SAE before it was exposed to the world.

Clearly, those leading and participating in the chant had no fear of social disapproval from their friends on the bus. To the contrary, the power of social conformity was being put to quite another use. The chant was reinforcing a social norm within SAE, putting every member on notice about what was acceptable to its members, and what was not.

The casual, even gleeful reference to lynching is especially startling, given the tragic history of racial violence in Oklahoma. The state was the setting of the Tulsa race riots almost a century ago, and of almost 150 documented lynchings, including that of Laura and Lawrence Nelson depicted below.

We like to tell ourselves that things are changing quickly in this country, that new generations of Americans aren’t trapped in the mindsets of their parents and grandparents. In many cases that is true; in this case, it was not. I doubt that most of those in the video picked up such aggressive racism in college; this was something they were raised with, something that they had been taught at home and brought with them to college, where they found others like themselves.

And assuming that the University of Oklahoma, a school of some 31,000 students, serves the same function in that state as other state universities, the members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity had been destined to be funneled into the business and political leadership of that state, where they would help set the tone and culture of its power structure. For these particular young men, that probably won’t happen now. (The national leadership of SAE has condemned the video and suspended its University of Oklahoma chapter, effective immediately, and university officials have already begun an investigation.)

In his remarks at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma over the weekend, President Obama reminded us that we’ve made remarkable progress, and that progress must be acknowledged and honored.

“We do a disservice to the cause of justice by intimating that bias and discrimination are immutable, that racial division is inherent to America,” Obama said. “To deny this progress, this hard-won progress -– our progress –- would be to rob us of our own agency, our own capacity, our responsibility to do what we can to make America better.”

But as he also pointed out, “a more common mistake is to suggest that Ferguson is an isolated incident; that racism is banished; that the work that drew men and women to Selma is now complete, and that whatever racial tensions remain are a consequence of those seeking to play the “race card” for their own purposes.  We don’t need the Ferguson report to know that’s not true.  We just need to open our eyes, and our ears, and our hearts to know that this nation’s racial history still casts its long shadow upon us.”

It took all of nine seconds to drive that point home.

Generations ago this despicable behavior would be considered a "harmless" frat boy prank. Hard to believe but well into the mid 20th century blackface that very embodiment of racism, was a popular form of entertainment. It was not uncommon well into the 1950s for high school, fraternities and local theater groups would perform in blackface. The real Mad men of Madison Ave. had no compunction utilizing blackface in their advertising. Take a look http://wp.me/p2qifI-1LM

Just found out that  SAE Fraternity was founded at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa Al......which might give some validity to the old saying that :apples don't fall far from the tree".

The best thing that can happen is that the names of ALL  those participating in this are exposed on the internet where any employment in a decent company will be able to "google" their stupidity and racism. Also, good luck to those individuals as they enter a DIVERSE work force which will be sure to return the favor of their narrow minded thinking. A huge congrats to the individual who was brave enough to expose the fraternity. This generation that has grown up in a age where technology doesn't hide your actions, where the whole world can see what you do, still have yet to learn that lesson. And thank you to their families who obviously find pride in handing down generations of  HATE as a gift to their kids. I hope they lose their jobs as well.

I'm not sure how this horrible incident advances Jay's agenda. I cannot imagine that any sane person could support the stupidity of these young people, or criticize their punishment.

As we recognize that racial prejudice is not extinct, let's also celebrate the progress that has been made, and acknowledge that it exists at every point on the political arc, and in all races toward other races. It is not an exclusively left/right issue, or black/white issue. Our culture needs to try to obliterate it, from wherever it comes and at whomever it is directed.

@ClubShark While some fraternities, and some of their members, cause trouble, that's far from all they do.  Fraternities raise millions of dollars per year for charities, they volunteer for both campus and community causes, and they graduate thousands of leaders every year.

8 white kids sang a song to themselves.  Clearly the most impactful thing to happen to in all of human history.

mar1049

See how easy it is to change the facts. It was a bus load of college educated white kids not 8. And yes it impacted their human history, the frat's history, the school's history, the students' history and the national perception of OK. Maybe next time these great Americans and patriots need to find a dark deep place in the woods to practice and chant what their parents have taught them.

@bill bigs These college kids were born in the '90s, 2 generations past Selma, and a generation beyond forced school integration. This could have happened when I went to college but seeing how easily the current generation mixes races, I was hopeful that we have made some serious progress. This video was a stark reminder that despite considerable progress, there is still racism within all strata of society and geography.

So what does that mean? It doesn't mean we need to re-visit the voting rights act or crank up affirmative action. It means we all should use this as a teachable moment for our children and grandchildren.

Racism is a wound on our country and occasionally the scab is torn off but If we treat and care for it, eventually time will heal.

The SAE at Georgia Tech a couple of decades ago were a bunch of southern-fried a-holes. Only the KAs were worse.

I fully support kicking the fraternity off the campus. Clearly it has a cancerous culture locally, and possibly nationally.

I believe the school should have a disciplinary hearing with all those on the bus to determine who were actively involved and who were simply silent enablers. The results of the hearing should be published, forever branding those involved as racist at this point in time (people can change).

Unlike others, I would not kick them off the campus because I think universities should embrace all speech, including the offensive. Public shaming works much better than institutional punishment. It helps people learn that behavior in their insular bubbles is not acceptable to the public at large.

I thought it was ironic that they interviewed the president of the Black student body association of  U. of Oklahoma  on the news last night. (who by the way urged forgiveness)   Why do they have a Black student body org.???  That is racism in itself and is being condoned by the University.

allamerican

@Frederick L. @allamerican Did you ever think that having exclusive black organizations is part of the problem? Are you a member of an exclusive black organization if so you are a racist and part of the problem.  I bet there will never be a honkey in the Black Miss America contest...........no whites allowed..  Racism at its finest.

JaxDawg34

@allamerican Attitudes like the one of the fraternity in question are why there are student organizations like the Black Student Association. I know people want to think that racism is a thing of the past but unfortunately it isn't.  People talk about the race card being played, but yet time and time again we continue to have these instances.  It's disturbing that in 2015 college educated individuals who are being educated and groomed to become future leaders hold these attitudes. If there were truly the inclusiveness and equality that the letter of the law mandates there would be no need for for these types of organizations. Let's not forget that a lot of these types of organizations are the birth child of racism. "Separate but Equal" ring a bell? 


A lot of times when things get blown up, the straw that broke the camel's back, may not be the best example or may be the only example with visible evidence.  The Ferguson case involving M. Brown is a good example of this.  In that particular case the residents there were outraged because that happened to be their enough is enough moment, but in that case I believe M.Brown had as much to do with what happened to him as the officer involved. But as everyone can see from the Justice Department's report there was and still is a culture of racism and targeting of poor blacks in the community.  


A lot of people want to dismiss this as college kids being college kids, but to sing about "lynching n*ggers" is hate speech plain and simple, and again this isn't some group of uneducated individuals sitting around their home.  These were young men and women who are supposed to be educated and smart enough to know better. I'm quite sure however they didn't pick up those attitudes at college.  Racism is a learned behavior. The other thing that makes it disturbing is the fact again, these are people being educated and groomed for leadership.  


The thing that our lawmakers need to realize is attitude and thought are not things that can be legislated. Education like most of our society's ills is the way to get rid of it.  


Personally, I'd rather see the members of that fraternity educated than kicked off campus.  Any ill feelings they have towards people of color is only going to be reinforced.  


Folks have to realize that regardless of color most of us as Americans want the same things.  A fair shake, ability to lead a productive career in some area of interest and provide for our families.  Poverty, ignorance, and lack of educational opportunities are the bedfellows of many of society's ills.  People of color AND poor whites still get a raw deal in this country whether people want to admit or not. 


Until people of all races and ethnic backgrounds can come together and sit down and have PRODUCTIVE conversations about the inequalities, advantages and disadvantages that EVERYONE have and how to get past them and move forward we are doomed to continue to repeat the mistakes of the past.

@allamerican @Frederick L. If other organizations were more inclusive, there would be no need for a Black Miss America contest.  While I think some of those things are outdated, again let's not forget where they were born from. To say that those organizations are racist is a stretch at best. If  you're not allowed to compete due to racism and your only alternative is to be excluded or start your own thing so you can compete, then how is that racism? Again has time come and gone for some organizations? I'll concede that, but to suggest they were born out the founders own personal racism vs giving disenfranchised people an outlet is ignorant.  There wouldn't have been a need for a Miss Black America in the first place had women of color been allowed to participate.  Just as there wouldn't have been a need for Negro League Baseball had blacks been allowed to compete. 


1921 The Miss America Pageant began

1968 The Black Miss America Pageant began 47 years later out of frustration.

1983  Vanessa Williams becomes the first woman of color to win.

@allamerican WOW!  Are you serious?  There will never be a N@#$er in SAE?  Black organizations were created because blacks were and evidently still are not allowed in white organizations.  That's why there are black colleges, black law schools, black medical schools, black Miss America, so forth and so on.  Because of exclusion of blacks.   It takes a racist to ignore that fact.  And obviously you are one.

Is anyone surprised by the actions of these young men and women?  Over the past 6 years all they hear and see in their homes are adults who hate President Obama, from their mothers and fathers, from their GOP congressmen and senators. These young men and women live in "gerrymandered" communities.


The biggest mistake the GOP continues to make is not offering a formal apology to all the American People for their unethical conduct over the past 6 years (hatred, fear and bigotry).  Maybe if the adults in the GOP had done the right thing and apologized for their unethical conduct these young people would not have acted like bigoted fools.


The GOP should stop their crusade to crucify President Obama the 1st Black American President of the USA.  The GOP should stop harassing "illegal aliens". Hispanics and other immigrants are already here in the USA. They are your family, friends and neighbors. The GOP needs to show compassion for all people who come to the USA seeking a better quality of life.


Let's take an unofficial Poll? Who would you like as your next door neighbor? Minorities? or GOP/tea party extremist/terrorist?

Very sad to see and these kids *should* be punished.


However, I must admit I don't see much difference between what they were doing and the song lyrics of many black hip-hop songs which exhort thongs like "killing whitey" or shooting cops. Can some wise liberal/progressive kindly explain why it is OK for one group to do it (and even make money off doing it) while another group is condemned for it?


In truth, what these silly kids did was offensive, but I have heard offensive language every day in downtown Atlanta.....I am NOT saying these kids are OK, what I AM saying is that a lot of this goes on in minority communities as well, as everyone here knows it. Just don't be hypocrits.

I don't mean to keep picking on Jay, but I will.  Like any liberal elitist, this oped piece isn't about the subject, it's about Jay.  Reading his comments throughout the thread is that much more disgusting.  See, a liberal elite doesn't care about results, they care about feeling superior.  Jay has never had any positive or measurable impact on improving the lives of minorities in any way whatsoever.


This story is about Jay Bookman, not an OU fraternity.  It's about how "down" Jay is with the cause.  It's about how Jay knows the plight of minorities.  It's about how Jay walks in lock-step with the civil rights leaders from Selma to Jackson.  In his little mind, he was there.  He even writes as though he was there.  Cryptic.  Philosophical.  He was there.


Instead of writing a leftist blog for a dieing 3rd market publication, Jay is on a valiant steed solving all social injustices: real or perceived.  Bravo Jay.  You hero, you!

Why do people go to these colleges anyway!! I mean coming from India, I knew better than to go to a school in the Southern United States. It's like there's literally a sign on these states saying -"If you are a minority and you  come here, then we will harass you!!" - "hello!! read the signs.. you're going to a place where you are going to be around xenophobic people of the greatest magnitude". What do you think will happen ? Even as an Indian person, in cities like Dallas/Houston, I feel the glaring eyes constantly asking me - "wad ya doin' here boy??.." Oh well!! On top of all the constant harassment, hatred for minorities, don't people watch the news - some of these people are crazy and will shoot you for no reason.. really insane stuff!! Stay away.

@Jobias Nunke Actually, really good schools like Ga. Tech welcome minorities, but there is a catch.  You have to be qualified to get into the engineering school at Tech. As a native white minority in a large southern city like Atlanta, I can literally say there is a sign on jobs that say:   You are not wanted.  We want young internationals.   The xenophobic tendency is now reversed.  Obviously, you do not know very much about big cities in the South or probably anywhere.  As well, you sound very stupid and resentful of people of other ethnic groups.  Wow, you are the racist?  Think about that for a while.

@Finnsrevenge @Jobias Nunke White people calling other people racists.  How unique.  History tells you all you need to know about which race has racism in it's DNA..  I an African American and I can tell you I have never been around any African American who taught their kids to hate white people.  Never.  How many whites can say that?  


The history of the relationship between whites and blacks would explain if blacks did hate white people.  But they don't.  Blacks support white businesses as a normal occurrence. In fact more than they support black businesses.  Whites do not support black businesses.  Blacks even supported white businesses when they had to go to the back door to get served.  Despite everything whites have done to blacks, which is horrific,  for the most part blacks still actually love white folks.  It is actually amazing.

OBAMA- OBAMA- OBAMA!!! This is your OBAMA leadership and pay close attention to #8 below!

Saul Alinsky died about 42 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.

Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

Education: University of Chicago

Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals

Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.

Anyone out there think that this stuff isn't happening today in the U.S.?

All eight rules are currently in play by OBAMA!

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the

most important.

1) Healthcare Control healthcare and you control the people

2) ) Poverty Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

6) Education Take control of what people read and listen to take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

8) Class Warfare Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?

@CanBee  ummm, 1) HMOs were introduced in the 1920's but given power by Nixon in the 70's and Medicaid/ medicare were introduced in 1965 2) the policies of the Bush administration led to the economic bust of 2008 and the pseudo depression that it initiated that have brought about this ever increasing number of poor.3) the wars brought about this uncontrollable debt - I agreed with Enduring Freedom but Iraqi Freedom... really? merely retaliation for beating up daddy as the "justification" for the war has been disproven time and time again 4) OK - you got that 1 5) welfare was created by Roosevelt 6) Education - again, really?  are you talking about the plan for free community college? or what?  heck that is not forcing anyone to do anything.  it is an effort to produce a more educated America so that were are not forced to import people from across the globe to assist but rather mold our "natural resources"  to fit the needs of the country by educating them in the field of their choice.7) The supreme court pulled prayer from the schools in 1962 (Kennedy-D) and was further promoted by the Lemon test in the 1970s (Nixon-R) 8) Class warfare... this country was built on the backs of the poor.  The middle class has been forced to sustain this country while the wealthy have been exempt from taxation at the rates of the middle class.  Most people on this blog are those who will be taxed higher as we are not the wealthy just middle class people.  The wealthy should pay a percentage equal to what I pay,  if that causes them to spend more dollars per annum so be it.  Every month thousands of dollars are removed from my pay to cover these taxes.  I do feel that there should be reform that offers a sliding scale for benefit and forces people to work but that is not the fault of this administration this is a systemic issue that has been in place for many years.

Some will take this as an excuse, so be it, but here is some physiology, the human mail prefrontal cortex does not fully mature until the mid-20's. Thus the filtering part of the brain is dysfunctional, thus some of the rational for drinking age of 21. These cerebral children should be disciplined and taught lessons for their ugly discourse, to draw broad references to culture as a whole from intoxicated 19 year olds is absurd.

@Clayton Johnson Um... when my grandmother and her siblings tried to go to college, even the local college wouldn't take them, not because of their grades, but because that college - and many others in the South - refused to admit black students. So, guess what - they went to historically black institutions. What, were those colleges supposed to close once the other colleges and universities finally integrated (unwillingly, and only from pressure by the federal government)? "Oh, racism is over, better close Tuskegee and Alabama State!" Give me a break.

White people just don't quit. They began racial hatred with the Native Americans; stole their land. Then, enslavement of Blacks. Even now, in 2015: they question remains: WHY do White people despise people who simply have darker skin color than their own (you know, the rich colors they bake in the sun for hours or bake ontanning beds to get!)? What is WRONG with you people? GTFU.

All this continues because Whites keep teaching it to their children. AND then, Blacks have acted out, blaming everything on the White folks when, many times, it's just an excuse.

EVERYBODY needs to stop. Whites need to stop being racist [(ritz) crackers] and Blacks need to bolster themselves and walk worthy of the battle won by our ancestors. MLK et al didn't march, bleed and die for folks to be actin' a damn fool.

Q: WHY is COLOR so GOOD for everything else--art, flowers, even the best foods are the darker foods (dark green veggies; dark breads, etc), etc.--but bad when it comes to skin color...?

We humans have a problem - always have. We choose the wrong god. When we choose to be god we tend to try to place ourselves above fellow men. When we're gods all opinions are equally valid logically, which breeds (and validates) chaos, despotism, murder, racism, and all evils. Only when we submit to the true God will we truly realize all men are equal, and there logically is a foundational morality, setting the stage for universal love.
