The fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon said Sunday night that its University of Oklahoma chapter will close and its members will be suspended after a video apparently of members chanting a racist slur was posted online. (See the video here, but be warned it contains graphic language.)
The frat house has been hit by vandals and police are now standing guard. Annie Colbert of Mashable joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to take a look at that story – and others, including the vulgar response to a tweet from former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling and a movement to throw a dance party for a man who was shamed for dancing in public.
Anyone know this man or who posted this? There’s a huge group of ladies in LA who would like to do something special pic.twitter.com/DGbu3AXOrB
