Oklahoma Football Player Calls Out Racist Fraternity Brothers With Emotionally Charged Video


ou protest

After a video was released Sunday evening of a University of Oklahoma fraternity singing a racist song that referenced lynching and contained racial slurs, reaction on both the campus and across the country was swift and emotionally charged. A peaceful protest involving students and staff took place on the campus Monday morning. Meanwhile, Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker recorded a SnapChat video ripping the fraternity members in a profane manner.

On Sunday evening, a minority student group at the university, OU Unheard, tweeted out a video to Oklahoma president David Boren showing members of the university’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter singing a racist song to the tune of “If You’re Happy And You Know It.” The frat bros chanted “there will never be a n*gger in SAE” and “you can hang them from a tree, but they’ll never sign with me.” Obviously, the frat was stating that they’ll never allow a black person in the fraternity and they’d rather have blacks lynched than be a member.

Below is video of the despicable ‘song’:

 

 

The video quickly went viral, and both Boren and the national SAE organization quickly acted. Boren pointed out that an investigation would commence immediately and any students involved would be expelled. Boren also took part in the Monday morning protest. Meanwhile, the national fraternity body shut down the OU chapter and suspended all of the members. The president also said anyone involved would be permanently expelled from the fraternity.

 

 

In Striker’s video, he cut right to the core of what is so disgusting about the frat boys’ racist chant.

“You’re the same mother f*ckers telling us racism don’t exist… f*ck you phony-ass, fraud-ass b*tches. I’m so mother f*cking fierce right now, SAE you’ve f*cked it up for all white fraternities. The same mother f*ckers sitting out here giving us hugs … telling us you really love us. F*ck you!”

Below is video of Striker’s SnapChat clip:

 

 

Striker wasn’t the only member of OU’s football team to respond to SAE’s awful act. Several players and the head coach, Bob Stoops, participated in Monday morning’s campus rally. The university’s men’s basketball coach, Lon Kruger, along with many of his players, also attended the protest.

 

 

Later in the day Monday, Boren publicly noted that the SAE house will not be back on campus as long as he is still president at OU. He also said he’d be happy if the frat brothers all left the university on their own and that OU “doesn’t provide student services to bigots.”

    I was stationed there for 12 years. They’re raised that way.

    Well,it would seem that any attempt to educate them has not been particularly worthwhile. How ignorant can they remain?

    That was a song by a bus full of people with synchronized lyrics, crescendo, and cadence. That was NO improvisation. This was a practiced, polished, performance. It was also the performance that was coincidentally recorded AND widely distributed.

    Are there similar recordings with a narrower distribution profile?

    How many of these performances are NEVER recorded?

    This is very sad I would expect this from someone who is not educated so to me this kind of behavior must have come from the home. I’m willing to say these are the a

    I wish to know what policies and procedures are in place at these so-called institutions of ‘higher’ learning that ensures that the US Constitution and all laws are respected and applied – especially in these fraternity houses.

    It sounds like there has been systemic discrimination against blacks (at least) at this fraternity. Why wasn’t the administration and head of the university aware of this? Or, were they and turned the other way. It stretches credulity for university administrators to claim not to be aware of these attitudes on campus.

    Totally sickening! What a blot on the reputation of all students at OU.
