Sigma Alpha Epsilon: Oklahoma University Fraternity Racism Disappoints Many

Sigma Alpha Epsilon is hogging the limelight, though all for the wrong reasons. It has been thrown out of the University of Oklahoma following their wild behavior that goes not just against the University’s stated policies, but of the country as well.

But it is not the first time when the organization has run amok. In recent months its members have misbehaved with officials at Yale, Stanford and Johns Hopkins too.

Right now the organization is being criticized due to a video that showed its wild members singing a racist song.Sigma Alpha Epsilon Oklahoma fraternity

Reports suggest that Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s national chapter suspended the students. But University took even tougher measure. But University of Oklahoma President David Boren announced that his university’s affiliation with the fraternity has been removed forever.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon is a very old student fraternity. It founded on March 9, 1856, at the University of Alabama, five years before the American Civil War, according to the fraternity website.

There are as many as 200,000 living alumni, along with about 15,000 undergraduates populating 219 chapters and 20 “colonies” seeking full membership at universities. SAE has had to work hard to change recently after a string of member deaths, many blamed on the hazing of new recruits, SAE national President Bradley Cohen wrote in a message on the fraternity’s website.
