SAE at Oklahoma University - How Do You Really Feel About Us?

It's 2015 and we're still talking about - you guessed it - overt and vile acts of racism.

I can only imagine how many times this "song" had been sung on buses, in frat houses, on campus and possibly in churches before it became public knowledge that there's a whole new generation of racists amongst us.

This chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon was uncovered in all its ugly glory for the world to see that Jim Crow uses twitter and instagram now.

Today, we learned that the two alleged "ringleaders" of the chorus were expelled from the university.  I think that's sort of like closing the barn door after the horses have escaped.

And how many of us really believe that the university had no idea of the racist antics of students on their campus?

I'm still shaking my head over the African American man who has been on the news who admits to being a member of SAE.  For him, and other Blacks who pledge white fraternities and sororities, I can't help but wonder, "Why?"  Some things will never change.  And I go further and ask, "haven't you heard of the wonderful, historically Black Greek fraternities and sororities we are blessed with?"

These are the people who go on to run corporations and get elected to high political office and we wonder why it's so hard for Black folks to not only get hired, but to get fair reviews and career opportunities. Those two got expelled but there are others who just didn't and won't get caught or exposed.
