The Oklahoma Kappa chapter at the University of Oklahoma closed and suspended fraternity’s members as the statement of the national SAE organization said. also the members involved with the incident could have their membership privileges revoked permanently.
They felt sorry in their statement and disgusted that any member would act like that. they apologized for the unacceptable and racist behavior of the individuals in the video.
” the online statement read. “Furthermore, we are embarrassed by this video and offer our empathy not only to anyone outside the organization who is offended but also to our brothers who come from a wide range of
backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities.”

Just one person on the bus objected to the racist refrain, this person till now is anonymous, he recorded a 10-second video of the scene on the bus after that he sent it to the black student organization which called Unheard and they posted the video on Twitter.
